A friend of mine bought a 65 Fastback for $7000. It needed paint & interior. But all the sheet metal was good. I changed the color from black to white, added the Leman's stripes & GT lower stripes. He did all the interior. It took 1st place in a local car show. Very nice car! Go for it!
Just make sure all the numbers match. That's where you can get into a mess. When door panel numbers don't match the front inner fender numbers. And the engine ID doesn't match the car or year. You can see the car at the link below. http://web.infoave.net/~ronniek

66 Coupe, 302, Auto, 3.25 gears. Candyapple Red with White Pearl Stripes. Cragars.
If it's only options were V8 and auto trans it may be a bit high, even with a solid body and no accident damage. How ever, if it has a decentpaint job or interior or a bunch of desireable options like factory 4bbl, handling suspension, a/c, rally pac, deluxe interior, then it'll be worth it.
Beware of rust. It's hard to spot all of it but fastbacks are prone to rust around the rear window and in the trunk. From inside the trunk look up under the rearwindow ledge to see how much rust exists. Also examine the structural supports around the trap door especially near the floor and towards the top.
Hoe complete is the fold down area? No missing panels or panels woth speaker holes in them? The trap door is goingupwards around $100. How is the rear window? I've heard they're around $300 if you can find one.
And check for the usual cowl, lower front door corner, behind the rear wheel well opening and front floor pan rust.
Hi, my '66 coupe came with front aftermarket seats and i am looking for something more period correct. I found some clean '67 fastback seats locally and i am wondering if they would fit in my '66?
Also, is there any differences between fastback and coupe seats?
Thanks a lot!
So I have a 67 mustang and in it I have a 68 302, a c4, and an 8 inch rear end. I’ve tried to look for a driveshaft for a 68 302 and c4 but all I get are driveshafts first a T5 conversion. Does anyone know what length or better yet, what driveshaft I can through in the 67? Thanks!
Well after lots of searching, want adds, bartering, "horse trading" I finally have a T5 to put in my car. I'm into it for $150 CAD ($110 USD) From all the research I did this will work fine for my "stockish" Sunday driver car. 1968 mustang 289, 3 speed.
I will use my existing clutch and...
