We've tried but we're finding hard to corral this Pony at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are proud to offer this factory Raven Black K-Code 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback with some serious extra kick! The heart of this super fast Mustang is a proffesionally built 1970 Boss 302 block V8 with a Paxton supercharger! We purchased this from a widow who's husband was a serious Mustang collector and with his personal experience he really knew how to build a performance Mustang the correct way and this fastback clearly shows it! This Mustang is clearly the fastest and tightest Pony we have sold in many years and we sell first generation Mustangs more than anything else!

This example was made in Ford's Metuchen, New Jersey (VIN code T) assembly plant on November 15, 1965 (15L). It left the line with a K-code high-performance Windsor 289 CID V-8 and raven black exterior, a black and parchment interior, a 3.50:1 rear axle and a four-speed manual transmission. It was originally delivered to the Atlanta, Georgia region (DSO 21).

The car's paint and trim are in excellent overall condition, especially the stunning Raven Black paint! This is a real factory black Mustang and not a color change! Its glass panels are intact and crystal clear, the car's lights, including its GT foglights, look great. This car's bodywork is definitely straight and the gaps are about the best you will ever find on a first generation mustang, the engine bay and undercarriage are very tidy and the chrome bladed bumpers look good overall.

This Pony rides on BFGoodrich Radial T/As in front, size 205/60R15 and BFG Comp T/As in back, size 215/60R15. Each tire surrounds an American Racing Torque Thrust D five-spoke alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are in excellent condition.

The previous owner of 16 years replaced the K-code 289 V-8 engine with a Boss 302 motor. It has the following features - a forged steel crankshaft; Crower custom billet rods; Wiseco billet custom dished pistons; Childes and Albert rings and bearings; Ron Anderson Performance GT40 heads; Crane rods and solid lifters; Lunati custom-ground camshaft; Offenhauser ported 360º intake manifold; Demon 750 CFM carburetor; electric fuel pump; Paxton supercharger with 7.15 boost; MSD ignition and distributor; Hooker Competition Plus jet-coated exhaust headers with cutouts and rear GT exhaust; and Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fan.

Backing up this motor is a Toploader four-speed manual transmission, which replaced the factory four-speed unit. A 3.70:1 rear end with limited slip is in place now instead of the original 3.50 gearing. The car also sports a three-inch aluminum driveshaft with safety loop. Other under-the skin features include - forged A-arms dropped an inch; Shelby springs; front and rear sway bars; Koni shock absorbers; and Moog front components.

Inside, the car's front buckets and rear demi-bench are in excellent order, as is the matching carpet. The headliner is in similar condition, plus four-point roll bar and a fire extinguisher. The original, three-spoke steering wheel is present and looks great, while the instrument panel and inner door panels echo the rest of the interior's theme. There's even a modified Rally-Pac gauge cluster perched atop the steering column. A Hurst shift lever and factory AM radio complete the interior; even the courtesy lamps still work!

The 1966 Mustang debuted with moderate trim changes including a new grille, side ornamentation, wheel covers and gas cap. The 289 "HiPo" K-code engine was also offered with a c4 transmission, but it had stronger internals and can be identified by the outer casing of the servo which is marked with a 'C.' The long duration, solid-lifter camshaft that allowed the high revving 289 to make the horsepower it was known for, was not friendly for a low stall speed automatic torque converter. The "HiPo" could be spotted very easily by the one-inch-thick vibration damper, (as compared to 1/2 inch on the 225-hp version) and the absence of a vacuum advance unit on the dual point distributor. With the valve covers off, there is a large letter "K" stamped between the valve springs, along with screw in studs (vs. a pressed in stud for other 289s) for the adjustable rocker arms. A large number of new paint and interior color options, an AM/eight-track sound system, and one of the first AM/FM mono automobile radios were also offered. It also removed the Falcon instrument cluster; the previously optional features, including the round gauges and padded sun visors, became standard equipment.

The 1965 and 1966 Mustangs are differentiated by variations in the exterior, despite similar design. These variations include the emblem on the quarter-panels behind the doors. From August 1964 production, the emblem was a single vertical piece of chrome, while for 1966 models the emblem was smaller in height and had three horizontal bars extending from the design, resembling an "E." The front intake grilles and ornaments were also different. The 1965 front grille used a "honeycomb" pattern, while the 1966 version was a "slotted" style. While both model years used the "Horse and Corral" emblem on the grille, the 1965 had four bars extending from each side of the corral, while on the 1966, these bars were removed.

Competition to this Mustang in 1966 included the Avanti II and Plymouth's Barracuda. When this Mustang was made, the rest of the Pony Car field was either still in pre-production or on drawing boards.
