1966 Ford Mustang Coupe

Title: 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe
Mileage: 65,427 miles
Location: Chattanooga, TN

This is an original San Jose car, now in Chattanooga Tn. This is a rust free body, original 68000 miles! I have been restoring Mustangs for 30 years, and have gone all through this one, fresh numbers matching 289 original 2V, original automatic rebuilt. New driveshaft, new rear end ring and pinion. (I wanted the drive train to be smooth and vibration free) .New carpet, and door panels, The upholstery and headliner are original and absolutely perfect. A/C needed a new clutch, it blows cold and strong. Power brakes, all new shoes/drums. New wheels and tires, new windshield, new paint. This car drives 70 mph perfect and smooth, this is a pleasure to drive. I drive it to work a couple of days a week so it is meant to be driven. The vinyl top is the original top, not perfect but very nice, too nice to replace since it is the original. New drip rails and windshield trim. It has a great stereo. Everything works perfectly on this car. The interior is as nice as I have ever seen. The paint is not show quality but fresh and nice. New front grill and bumper.

I've recently changed the oil and replaced the two front wheel cylinders. The cars runs and drives well (but no power steering) and I have recently driven it on a 250 mile trip (mostly interstate) with no issues (but lots of attention and thumbs-up!). It needs hood hinges (which I ordered last night), weatherstripping around the trunk lid and the drivers side window does not want to stay rolled up tight. One of the aftermarket wheels has a missing centerpiece. Other than that I think its in good shape. There is no visible rust except for a few bubbles under the vinyl top. Paint is fair/good but I'm told it needs to be color-sanded and buffed. Underneath is in good shape with no rust through places, but it has not been refinished/painted. Engine uses no oil and does not leak (at least on the driveway) but there is some on bottom of engine. All interior lights and guages work properly. Radio is not original but dash has not been altered. Interior is near perfect as far as I can tell. No rips, stains or tears. Glass is all good. I was told when I bought the car that the odometer was accurate (and the title reads this way). The odometer now reads 65,427 but given the age of the car I am not sure that it is accuarate.
