An “A” for effort: ’66 Ford Mustang GT
The rarest and most sought after Ford Mustang is the K-code. That is, if you are considering all-out performance your only criteria. The K or Hi-Po for those in the know, is a 289ci solid lifter V-8. But with the K designation, you had restrictions back in the day. No automatic, no A/C and a limited 90-day warranty. Next down on the food chain are the A-code cars. This is configured as 289ci V-8 with a 4-barrel carb pumping out 225hp. This is a great engine and delivers terrific performance in the relatively lightweight Mustang.
Today’s find is a beautifully restored example in a refreshingly different color – Nightmist Blue. In addition to A-code status, it is a real GT package car. GT package included, dual exhausts, fog lights, quicker steering and disc brakes. This package, like the M package on an Austin-Healey 100, can be easily faked. The seller provides a detailed description of the restoration and details that verify its originality including the rare color and 2-tone blue interior. The redlines on the chrome wheels are another homage to originality. Mustangs are great cars to own and drive. But you need to be sure you know what you are getting. There were millions built and many have perished or become the subject of a backyard, rattle-can restoration. You don’t want that. You want a cherished original car or a nice restoration by a professional. More than likely, you’ll be paying less than the cost of the restoration.
