To expound, even further, disc brakes was a stand alone option on all V8 Mustangs in '65 & '66, not just GT equipped.

All, thank you so much for your replies. Your guidance is greatly appreciated.

Where are most people posting their Mustangs for sale nowadays, Craiglist, Ebay?

Patrick, thank you. I actually started taking photos of some of the items that factory GT's came with to help either refute or confirm it is a GT. For example, the GT exhaust hanger is one of these items I have taken pictures of. See the attached photo as an example. I have checked other items, such as the frame rail reinforcement in the trunk, which it has.

Mustang656man, I agree with you 100%. I actually coated the floor with rust inhibitor immediately after taking those photos. I wanted to show the floors as I found them in order to represent the car as honestly as possible. They look so much better with the coat.

Just look at the metal dash for the dip where the 140 speedo rests. Since it’s not a deluxe interior car, if there’s a dip in the dash, it must be a GT. (In ‘65)

When looking for the value of a specific model such as your A-code GT with a 4 speed, much of the value over or under a typical car of the same year and condition will be how much of it is original and what factory options are on the car.

Is the engine and all associated parts original to the car, including the transmission?

What options are on the car? Are the disc brakes factory or aftermarket?

One thing for sure on a vintage Mustang in any condition, if the price is right it sells overnight.
I took the a photo of the brakes and they appear to be the stock Kelsey Hayes and the transmission is a 4 speed, top loader, coded as a 16:1, shaft 41 7.8, and model year 65/66. The engine build assembly date code is "6F17L" which I think means June 17, 1966.

As for the cowl, I did a water test this afternoon and the interior stayed dry, I put down towels and had no water. That made my day!

Took a picture, it had the dip as you mentioned. Glad I found that!

Why sell it? Is it hurting you to keep it? My car sat for 20 years before I fired it back up again and now I drive it sometimes and love it. Your time might free up soon and maybe you can make the car a family thing. Just some things to think about if you haven't already.

Also his area needs to be looked at. Selling in the NY,NJ,CT Area commands a premium. Being a real GT-A Code 4speed.. I think that he is looking at 17K-20K all day long in his area in its current condition. 25K would be a stretch, but is possible with the right buyer.

If its supposed to be that way, ok. BUT, if its not, and indeed that is the stock single reservoir unit for drum / drum brakes, then 2 things are a problem 1) The disks are not stock, they are aftermarket, so the question becomes - which kit, who did the work, do you have receipts...and 2) They are not installed correctly - might even be dangerous, frankly. If I were the buyer, and if that master truly is the drum/drum version, that would be an issue....- $1000
The master cylinder looks correct. 65-66 discs used a single reservoir master cylinder, but it was a larger than those used on drum/drum.

Late to the party, 66coupe289
We already know it's a factory GT and pretty much all the right stuff is present.....

Nice car. It does indeed look to be a factory GT, especially considering the dash. However, the floor pans definitely needs to be addressed so with current market values I'd guess anywhere from 14-15k. With the floors fixed, the price could be 18-20k.

A combination of reasons, but mostly due to only having one garage space and no time with my children now. While I love driving it, itís so infrequent now that I would like to pass the car onto to someone who will enjoy it more than me.

If anyone on the forum is interested, please let me know. I would like to keep track of it and see what the next owner does to it.

Thanks!
