1966 Ford Mustang Vintage Race Car – Sold
Classic Car Fusion is offering this extremely cool vintage road race prepped 1966 Ford Mustang coupe. This turn-key street legal race car with black California plates has over 150k invested in it, and is eligible for open track events, vintage racing, SCCA track days, or use as a completely streetable hotrod.
At first glance you can't help but notice the imposing and impressive 275/45/17 Hoosier slick road race tires on all four corners, hinting and it's road race pedigree. Wrapped around custom offset 17x8.5 PSE wheels and Willwood Superlite disc brakes all around, the ample grip and stopping power is backed up by a host of Global West road racing suspension components including tubular lower A-arms, strut rods, subframe connectors, and 650lb rate coil springs. Further suspension upgrades and mods include modified front shock towers, 1970 Mustang "big bearing" spindles, Traction Master traction bars, custom fabricated Maier racing panhard bar, and Koni racing shocks on all four corners.
Supplying power to the massive sticky tires is a fully built and Dyno tested 351 Windsor small block with custom ported Edelbrock Victor aluminum heads, forged flat-top 10:1 compression pistons and a huge solid lifter flat tappet race camshaft with stainless roller rocker arms. In keeping with the race prepped engine, other racing goodies include a custom built power steering system with Saginaw type pump and remote reservoir, a large capacity oil cooler with HP-6 oil filter system, ported and heat coated Edelbrock Victor intake manifold, MSD 6AL ignition and a Holley 750 CFM HP carb. Rounding out the engine bay is a race spec water pump, Boss 302 harmonic balancer, Ford racing 140 amp alternator, custom aluminum radiator, and stainless braided hoses and AN fittings throughout the car. The rest of the drive train is more than capable of handling the power at wide open throttle and starts with an aluminum flywheel with light weight scatter shield, backed by a close ratio 4 speed Top-loader with road race gears and a custom built kevlar clutch. A custom built steel 3" driveshaft then sends power through a 9 inch rear end with 370-1 Ford gears and Tru-Trac posi.
Moving on the the exterior we have 2 inch widened kevlar front fenders from Maier racing along with an R-model front racing apron and steel framed fiberglass hood. Making this race car lighter still is a Lexan rear windshield and gutted door glass.(which does come with the car). An exterior mounted electric cut off switch on the tail light panel insures safety and racing compliance.
Finally the interior is kept to a bare minimum with an SCCA sanctioned roll cage, 5 point harnesses and a fixed back racing bucket seat for the driver. The original dash and all gauges are in perfect working condition with the addition of a column mounted Autometer tach and a trio of custom mounted coolant gauges on the golvebox. For further safety and weight distribtion, a Fire Safe 22 gallon fuel cell is mounted in the trunk along with an enclosed relocated battery.
As you can tell, this is a well sorted race and track car eager to be taken to the limits. This is your chance to own an unbelievably fun, fast, and loud car for a fraction of the cost it took to build it.
