Today (5/29/2018) I'm buying my first Mustang (and first Ford). Its a 1966 hardtop base model Mustang. I'm pretty excited about it. It's not a show car or fully restored or anything like that, but the body seems mostly straight, the drive train is good, and its nicer than other first generation Mustangs I've seen around here for the price.
I'll upload a pic once its in my driveway later on tonight.
According to the door tag, here's the info:
Body Style: 2-Door Hardtop, Standard Bucket Seats
Exterior Paint: Nightmist Blue
Interior Trim: Blue with Blue Trim
Date: 02 December, First Year
DSO (District): Washington
Rear Axle: 2.83:1
Transmission: C-4 Automatic
Model Year: 1966
Assembly Plant:Metuchen, NJ
Body Serial: 2-Door Hardtop
Engine: 200 Cu. In. Six Cylinder 1 bbl.
However, the actual engine is a (built in the past 6 months) 302 V8 that's bored out 0.060 over with a Holly 4 barrel carb (I think its 600cfm), with a rebuilt C4 transmission and 3.89 gears in the rear end. Additionally, the paint isn't original as it currently looks more baby blue. But hey, it runs and looks cool. Now I got something to cruise in for a while
I won't restore it to factory original, but haven't 100% decided what direction to mod it (like a clone of shelby or something, or just make it a cool hot rod, or whatever). But no need to make that decision now, now its just time to enjoy it.
