The owner of this 1966 Ford Mustang brought it in to our shop to have a few upgrades made to it. First off, we installed a Roadster Shop front end along with a 302 with NOS. We also installed an AOD Transmission and a 4-Link rear end.
We also had to widen the sheet metal on the front of this 1966 Ford Mustang in order to fit the new front clip. Actually, quite a bit of metal work went into this car, including the custom hood. We also gave the rear end of this Mustang some special treatment and modified the rear sheet metal. This 1966 Ford Mustang is one-of-a-kind because of all the custom metalwork we ended up doing.
This 1966 Ford Mustang is one of the first-generation Mustangs manufactured by Ford between 1964 and 1973. Originally available as a hardtop and convertible, the fastback version of the Mustang became available for purchase a few months after the initial release of the car.
The design and look of the Ford Mustang became very popular when it was first released. It inspired quite a bit of competition from other auto makers. However, sales began to decline in the early 1970s, and Ford began designing the next generation of Mustang. With the looming threat of the 1973 oil crisis, Ford had decided to make the next generation of Mustang, the Mustang II, smaller in size to offset its fuel consumption. Released in 1974, the Mustang II had no common components with earlier models.
