Vehicle Story

This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible has been restored and modified as a nod to one of the four Shelby GT350 convertible prototypes produced in 1966 in preparation for the 1967 model year. Power is delivered by a dyno-tuned later model 302ci V8 paired to a T5 5-speed manual transmission with a 9" rear end. Performance upgrades include but are not limited to Trick Flow electronic fuel injection, roller cam and lifters, GT-40P heads, a high-volume oil pump, an aluminum radiator, and an electric cooling fan. Handling and stability have been enhanced with Wilwood front discs, power steering, a Mustang II front end, coilovers front and rear, and more. This Mustang is finished in Candy Apple Red over black with a white vinyl top and is offered with a clear Florida title.

Finished in a recent respray of Candy Apple Red with a white vinyl convertible top, the car's exterior has been modeled in tribute to the 1966 Shelby GT350 and features "GT350" striping along the rocker panels.

GT350 14" chrome Magnum 500s are fitted with a set of 205/60 Federal black-walled tires. Power rack and pinion steering is equipped along with Wilwood power disc brakes on the front. 

The refurbished interior is trimmed in black vinyl, and upgrades include a Hurst shifter and a dash-mounted tachometer. Fresh black carpet sits atop new floor and trunk pans.

A Vintage Air cooling system was added as part of the restoration. The odometer shows approximately 77k miles, though true mileage is unknown.

The 302ci V8 was built using a factory 1991 Ford roller engine professionally tuned for premium pump gas. Trick Flow Street Heat EFI enhances performance with a BBK 75mm throttle body and 24-lb./hr. fuel injectors, a Trick Flow Stage 1 roller camshaft and lifters, a high-volume oil pump, an MSD distributor and ignition system, and GT-40P heads topped off with Shorty big-tube headers. An aluminum radiator and electric fan are equipped for cooling. The selling dealer reports a dyno-tuned 275hp at the rear wheels (and 310hp at the flywheel) by way of a T5 5-speed manual transmission and a Ford 9" rear end. A new fuel tank was installed at the time of restoration as well.

Increased handling performance is achieved with modern suspension components, including a Mustang II independent front suspension with tube A-arms and shock tower delete kit with coilovers. The rear suspension is equipped with leaf springs and gas coil over shocks.

A detailed write-up of the history of the 1966 Shelby GT350 will be included with the sale.

 

AUTOHUNTER ADMIN UPDATE 4/14/2021 9:30AM PDT: The description has been corrected to state that the car is equipped with leaf springs and coil over shocks in the rear.
