Ford Mustang 1966 Description

This TRUE RUST FREE SURVIVOR is a one owner TIME CAPSULEin amazing original condition. It is 100% absolutely rust free condition without any rust anywhere on the car and no repair ever. There is not even one spot of surface rust on the car - anywhere which is truly amazing after 50 years! Here's the story:

Dad purchased this carnew in 1966 from the local dealerin Seattle Washington (where it never snows).The car spent its entire life in the Seattle area. He drove itfor about 25 years then gave it to his daughter to drive. Apparently she didn't appreciate the privilege because when it needed repairshe figured since it was dad's car so he ought to pay for it. They had an argument, he got mad, uffed off leaving the car behind. As a result the car was left with the folks untouched(in theirheated garage) for another 25 years! Dad died, o did the daughter recentlyso momGAVE the car to my friend Dale who was 83 at the time. Dale knew he was a short timer so he gavethe car to mein January. Unfortunately my friend Dalepassedaway last month. I love the car but don't havedry storage for itso I am passing it onto someone that can take better car if it. I do not want to see it sit outside andget rusty!!I had my mechanic drain and change all the fluids, elts, oses and filters, dd tune up parts thenit fired right up. At that point he found the carburetor, all joints and tie rods were shotso he rebuilt the carburetor and replaced the ball joints, ie rods and lubed it.Now it runs and drives nicely. The paint was dull and interior dirty so I had it touched up buffed and cleaned. I did not have the engine compartment detailed, t is good enoughas-is in my opinion. The carpet was old and stained so I had it replaced.The steering wheel was in poor condition so I replaced it with a new wood replacement.

BTW: My mechanic was amazed at the condition of this car. He rants and raves about the great condition this car is in. He tells methey ALL rust in the cowl vent area, owever this car is even rust free there, hich testifies to the fact the car was always in a heated garage and never driven in the snow! Here's the facts as I understand them:

This is a100% original factory car. Nothing is added but the aftermarket radio that is now 25-30+ years old.

Original miles: 118,000

Originalblack paint

Original redPony interior.

Original 289V8, 25 horsepower

Original four-barrel carburetor

Original floor shift console (3sp)

Original GT trim

Original exhaust trumpets

Original front disc brakes

Original vinyl top. Amazingly this top is in perfect condition. It is smooth, ot a bump or rippleon it!

Original factory glass is all good. The windshield is factory tinted.

Original door rubber mouldings are still good!

Original exterior decor group

Original fog lights

Original remote mirror

Original deluxe door panels

Factory power steering

GT wheels

Original console

Runs nice. I do not believe theengine and transmission were never rebuilt, thinkthey are original. However,I had our mechanic check compression; it is good. The shift linkage seems stiff to me, robably because the grease dried out over the years. I will have my mechanic lube it before it goes away. Everything else seems to work fine and the car drives perfectly. Please feel free to ask questions. Happy bidding on a great car!
