PostSubject: 1966 Ford Mustang   Sun Nov 15, 2015 7:23 pm

1966 Ford Mustang that fallowed me home from the Car Show a few days after I went. Originally Springtime Yellow with Parchment Crinkle With Black Trim Rosette interior. Was a 3 speed manual originally but I am thinking of doing an automatic instead.

She is a blank slate without the engine & transmission so I can put whatever ones I want in it. I might go find a 352 V8 just to be different than everyone else or just go for a 390 if I could never find one or whatever. I don't mind a 289 but as I said I would rather be different than everyone else and most likely not think of a 302 unlike many people have done.

Floors have been done and other bady areas too but still needs some work but not as much as the 65 Custom 500. Plus about every part for them availible and not that high.

Vin Number. 6R07T222842

Data Plate. 6R07T222842 Body-65A Color-8 Trim-D6 Date-28F DSO-61 Axle-3 Trans-1

No Title right now but the guy we got it from said he checked already with a Florida title Company and it's good. Yes we believe him as he knows my Dad through work from Amtrak. It was $800 without the title and $1200 with him gtting one and since we didn't have the extra to pay for him to get it we decided early next year we are going through the same Company he checked with. He had a Plymouth GTX all matching I think he said but it needs work and he usually has Mopars instead of Ford's my Dad said.




















New Door Panels.

Those are cool cars. And they are the cars that started the muscle car era. Mustangs run in our blood around here. I have a few. One thing is there isn't nothing you cant buy from a book for a mustang. I would bet this type of car has the most aftermarket support then any other car. I have to agree with Carlos on this (318Fins). Not to mention the support of parts but prices for the parts are very reasonable.  Whats nice about the old mustangs is you can build one reasonable and for someone just getting into the hobby of restoring a car this is a very good choice.

I think I have a pic or two of my mustang in members other rides section. Check it out if you want.

This right side taillight was in the trunk. I looked at the part number and it's from a Fury.

If anyone knows more and if it is worth selling it? Maybe I can make a little money on it.

Thanks.

Looking at more info and I think it was a 200 6 Sprint package because it doesn't have the chrome quarter trim that is on all 1966 Mustang's except for the Sprint & GT which I know is not that as it had the 6 that no GT had. So I might just go back to the 6 cylinder but I am still going to put in an automatic instead of the manual.

Sprint package had the 200 6 with a chrome breather. No quarter panel Trim. Chrome rocker panel trim. Center console & a small stripe going from the front of the fender to around quarter panel where the chrome trim would have been at.

Both pieces are there just one behind the other.


I don't know what this was from.

Matt, Im not sure those pieces go to the mustang. Ive done a few mustangs and those two parts don't look familiar to me at all. The mustang does look pretty solid though. Up here you would be hard pressed to find one that nice to restore. If for some reason it hits me what those parts are I will let you know. But im guessing there not from that car.

I wonder how hard it would be to change it into a fastback. scratch

I figured they were not a part of any Mustang but still curious about them.

There is a lot more it needs that I didn't see at the time I got it. New complete cowl above and below along with a new dashboard assembly. It needs a new package tray with surrounding metal area. The interior frame piece for the top the sails weld to in a spot or two. Sorry I don't know what the piece was called.


It would cost over $4000 just for all of the panels to convert it to a fastback.

Love the fastbacks in 66. Like the 66 fastback 2+2. Also the 68 fastback GT!  4k sounds like a lot but the return you make on it if you were to sell it would be quite nice. The mustangs have just a cool look no matter what type you have though. And there fun!   The cowl rust is not uncommon Matt. But here in Minnesota its not cowl rot that we have a problem with. Just everything else below it is gone! LOL. Very Happy

LOL.


I never really cared for the fatback Mustang's with the exception of the Bullet Mustang yet I like the 1979-1986 hatchback Mustang's. I do like the Fairlane fastbacks though.

I forgot to post this awhile back.

Here is a link with a pic of a 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 with what one had looked like new. You can see the stripe, rocker panel trim & the wire hubcap wheels which had the Ford crest in it instead of the Mustang.

Engine with the chrome breather. Early the breather had a snorkel and half way through production they stopped having one.

Matt, One of my mustangs I had did have the sprint 200 in it. Was a very good running motor. Ford did have some good six bangers back then. I wouldn't hesitate at all to put a six back into that mustang. I even had headers on mine and it sounded awesome! Very Happy  I always wanted to build up a crazy six for a mustang.

Hope your project is going well.

It's good right now.

There is a guy that goes by NEFaroura at many sites I looked at who is supposed to have a registry for Sprint 200's but I'm not sure about doing anything like that and especially before we get a new title for it next year. Everything in that registry was done since the 1980's they said.

Not much but writing what to do and what it needs. Needs a new radiator support and the firewall that we believe was cut & pushed back in the section for the heater so they can have an A/C too.

We will be going to the Carlisle Events Lakeland FL winter car show later in the month and will look to find some things. Tom Wopat will be there for some of the days.

Parts for my 1966 Mustang. $10 for the Mustang & Corral. $15 for the rear valance with the correct holes for the backup lights that the one on my car didn't have because it was for a 64 & 65 Mustang before the laws of backup lights.

Very good score on those parts Matt. Smile There are so many companies making parts for the mustangs it makes it very fun to restore them. I agree I wish Plymmie parts could only be had for those prices. I get that Plymouths are a rarer breed. But geez!! I think greed plays a big part in prices for parts for Plymouths. Such a shame...

Thanks.

The horse & corral are $90 for new ones and this one is original. $40 to over $50 for a new rear valance but I don't know whether it's original or not.


I wished Plymouth parts were cheap too but the Plymouth cars are not usually as cheap as what I paid for the Mustang either. Or at least not here in FL.

Slow as I should be doing anything. Got most of the sand that was in the car.


I looked and took pictures of everything above but not below. Looks like the floor would need doing again as they cut spots and put new floor over the original body metal instead of doing it any of the factory seams. You can see overlap of the old under the new. Although it could be they were thinking of just a racer or something.

I guess I might just be thinking too much into it after looking underneath. Seems to me that they cut the original floor in spots where the rust was and then put the new floor over it then sealed them to the sides & the center hump with a sealant instead of welding it.

It does need a new firewall. Quarter panels. Radiator support. Package tray. The inner braces for the top need new metal put in because it is rotted in a corner of it which is the only thing I don't see replacement metal for. Picture 8 of the first pictures I took you can see the brace I am talking about above the inner wheel well by the seat back.


Cool and have a good time fixing his car.

Yes the parts are in plenty of good places and at good prices.

Well Matt I think i see burn marks from welds underneath? I see where they cut out and put new floors,
If not they are pretty simple to weld in as theres only one main brace and all the rest of welding in floors is all perimiter based.
Plug welds will do just fine no need to do beads.
Im doing both sides i replaced the driverside toeboard which is pretty much part of the firewall, and put in a 68' torque box which 66s didnt come with.
Ill upload pics of the floor work or maybe make a thread.
im also going to swap quarters, then media blast it , these cars unfortunatly many at least have too much hidden surface rust due to age ...
