1966 Ford Mustang Fastback
Fastback Car for sale in Ridgecrest, California 93555
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
This 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 Fastback with GT options is for sale. The car was built in San Jose, Ca on 7 January 1966. I have owned this car for the past 22 and half years. The car is a truthful California car and has resided in the California High Desert since my ownership. Of Note: less than 6 % of the total Mustangs produced in 1966 were Fastbacks (35,698 Fastbacks/607,568 total Mustangs).
The car runs and drives great. And with its Signal Flare Red exterior feature, the car is a real attention grabber. The car has an awesome loping sound through the exhaust. Everything on the car appears to function properly. There are no hidden tricks to starting or driving the car. At no time has this car experienced rain or snow since my ownership (22 and ½ years). Garaged kept and covered all the time. Has had seasonal tune-up's. This car needs a good home with someone who is able to care for and appreciate it.
