1966 Ford Mustang
Car for sale by Black Dog Performance Cars in Lincolnshire, Illinois 60669
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
For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is a killer 1966 Ford Mustang GT350R Tribute. Powering this 66’ Fastback is 1971 302 CID V8 with 289 heads, four 48 IDA Weber carburetors, and a Shelby Cobra Weber 48 IDA intake. The T5 5-speed manual transmission transfers the ponies to the 9-inch rear end with 3.89 gears and a locking differential. The 15-inch Torq Thrust wheels are wrapped in Goodyear bias ply race tires, which are non-street legal, but carry on the period correct look perfectly. To help stop this GT350R Tribute are Granada spindles and discs up front and Wilwood disc brakes in the rear.
Inside the car is pretty basic, as a race car tends to be. The heater, radio, and ash tray have all been removed, while a fuel gauge has been mounted under the dash. You have 2 low back GT350R-style seats that are mounted on sliders to accommodate different sized passengers, while the rear seats were removed to make room for the matching spare tire mounted on the rear shelf.
Outside, the body features several GT350R styling cues, functional fiberglass hood and side scoops, C-pillar vent deletes, fiberglass rear decklid, front valance, and rear window. The car was repainted the factory Wimbledon White with the Guardsman Blue body and side stripes about nine years ago.
