66 Mustang ~ Bronze Beauty ~ 2nd Car
Posted by Stangfreak2 on Saturday, February 9, 2019 8:24 AM

After I had thrashed, trashed, and crashed my first 68 Mustang I was able to land this 66 in excellent condition for a measley 20 bucks. No joke, 20 bucks. The previous owner had tried to rebuild the 289 engine and had torqued the rod cap bolts way to tight and the engine would not turn over. I had a great running 302 from my recently crashed Stang and pulled a quick swap. Thiss 66 was already equipped with a Borgue~Warner T-10 4 speed tranny and 4:11 rear end. Now with my 302 dual 4bbl and Cragar wheels, I had a sweet running street monster. I had built a few of these 66 kits, but never found the right color paint until this build..

That is a nice job on your model. The 1/1 is really nice too.
