Description

"The Ford Mustang was the brainchild of Lee Iacocca and was branded as the first 'Pony Car', borne out of a need to compete with the flood of European sportscars coming into the USA in the sixties. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964.
Manufactured in 1966 at the Dearborn plant, this Mustang Fastback is presented in metallic blue with black leather trim. Fully restored in 2014, it was purchased by the current owner in 2015. This automatic 2+2 Fastback boasts a 289 C-Code engine which sounds glorious upon start-up and is coupled to a GT twin exhaust system. Sitting on GT Cobra 17 inch wheels with uprated GT lights, this example boast all disc brakes with new pads, a centre console and power steering. Available in the history file, a 16 pages report and full car survey from March 2021 by Classic Car Surveys describes the car as exceptional and is valued at £37,000. Offered for sale with a UK V5, Haynes’s manual and an MoT test certificate until July 2022, this is a car that never fails to impress and gathers admiring glances wherever it goes."
