Description

The Mustang remains one of the most popular cars of all time, but that also means that finding one that hasn't been modified or customized is getting harder every day. So imagine our surprise when this tidy red coupe showed up looking quite stock and still sporting a 200 cubic inch inline-six. It's not a rare car, but it's definitely rare to see a car like this restored to this level, and that makes it something special.

Candyapple Red looks great on any Mustang, even the coupes, and it seems to fit the energetic little pony just fine. We're glad that the owner decided to restore it to its factory specs because this red Mustang will stand out among all its modified and over-wrought siblings that never seem to get it right. This particular Mustang is not about flashy performance, but rather fun, economical transportation with a big dose of style to go with it. The finish is quite good for a car at this price level, showing above-average prep, good gaps, and a great shine that could be taken up a notch or two with a professional buff job. No stripes, no add-ons, no fake badges, just a clean, honest Mustang coupe that's pretty much the way most folks ordered them back in the day. It has a '60s sensibility that you'll find quite appealing, and with all the bright chrome accents, it looks like a much more expensive car. Bright chrome on the bumpers, stainless trim with a soft shine, and clear red taillights look crisp and clean against the red paint.

The basic black vinyl interior is also how this car was originally delivered, and the no-nonsense combination is ideal for the red bodywork. The seat covers are correct reproductions of the base buckets (thank you for not putting a Pony interior in this one!) and the carpets are still in pretty good condition even though they're a few years old now. There are also correct door panels with bright trim, a standard 3-spoke steering wheel, and original gauges (all 1966 Mustangs got the '65 GT gauge cluster), all of which give it a pleasing and inviting look inside. There's an accessory under-dash A/C unit which uses modern mechanicals under the hood to make it reliable and powerful and the original AM radio is still in the dash, but it's long overdue for an upgrade. With room for a few overnight bags, the trunk is neatly finished with a reproduction mat and spare tire with matching cover.

The 200 cubic inch inline-six shouldn't be dismissed, because it's a peppy, torquey, and smooth powerplant that works quite well in the lightweight Mustang coupe. Never intended to be a racer, this engine is more comfortable cruising around town where the C4 3-speed automatic transmission seems to always be in the right gear. The Ford Blue engine looks great, especially with the chrome air cleaner and valve cover, and the modern A/C compressor is so cleverly hidden that it may take you a few moments to find it. It also has a recent tune-up so it runs right. The car is extremely clean underneath with lots of new parts, including a fresh single exhaust system with a proper transverse muffler and a set of new shocks. Stock steel wheels with wire hubcaps complete the Mustang look and carry 205/75/14 whitewall radials for just the right look.

If you care about quality more than just raw power, this Mustang coupe deserves careful consideration. Even with six cylinders, Mustangs remain first-rate fun. Call today!
