So I decided I had waited long enough. I've been passively searching for the right deal to get back into old muscle for a while now. Well, last week it fell in my lap. A good friend of mine has a couple issue with his 66 Mustang that he didn't get fixed before deploying to Afghanistan. When he came back he just left it covered, got orders to New York, and decided to let it go.
He made me an offer I couldn't refuse. So I now own a 66 Mustang, 302, 4 speed, all done out with the big cam and carb, intake, full headers, new wiring harness, dakota digital dash.
It needs some body work and paint, interior redone, and tlc.
I picked it up Saturday, hadn't been touched in over a year. A new battery, fuel pump, dropped and cleaned the gas tank... now she lives!
It'll take some doing to get her to run right, but I got her running...
