The 1966 Ford Mustang offered here is described by the vendor as a very good example of these much sought after and iconic Muscle cars. The car is finished in its original candy apple red and has the Pony interior with a full tonneau cover and GT lights.

Built on 18th May 1966 at Ford’s Dearborn plant as a Candy Apple Red Convertible, chassis 6F08T353200 was despatched new to the Detroit District Sales Office. Migrating to California thereafter, the four-seater had been uprated with a 302 cu in (5 litre) V8 engine and automatic transmission by the time that previous keeper, Frank Vranicar, acquired it. A professional pilot, Mr Vranicar had a lot of work carried out by Mustangs & Fast Fords OC of Santa Ana, California, including a power steering overhaul and the fitment of a new front crossmember, wood rimmed steering wheel, front coil springs and rear leaf springs (2013 to 2015). He also had the period air-conditioning system fettled by D&S Auto Air of Costa Mesa, California. The car resided in California where it won several first and second prize trophies at Orange County Mustang Club events, the Convertible entered the current ownership during 2016.

Relocating to the vendor’s Florida holiday home, the Ford was entrusted to Forte’s Classic Garage Inc of St Largo for over $3,000 worth of attention to its radiator, heater box, alternator, gearbox, differential, suspension and steering in August 2018, before being imported to the UK and road registered as ‘MDX 145D’ later that same year. Sparingly. Boasting an Edelbrock Performer 289 inlet manifold, Holley four-barrel carburettor, ‘Pony’ interior, hood cover, Custom Autosound retro-look stereo and whitewall tyres, this former award winning Mustang soft-top is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, owner’s manual, history file and assorted trophies.
