This 1966 Ford Mustang Fastback GT has been through a complete, ground up rebuild. The car was imported into Australia back in April 2001. While it was a good car to start with, the Mustang received a full ground up restoration over a number of years and completed in 2020. Since then, the car has been well kept and maintained by collectors and enthusiast owners.

The body of the Mustang itself was in good condition prior to the restoration. The bodywork was performed by Barry Reynolds who is a care body builder from Bendigo, Victoria. Once the body work was complete the car was fully repainted using 2 pac in the original Candy Apple Red. The chrome and bright work on the outside of the car was all either refinished or replaced. The car features the correct GT appointments including grille mounted spotlights, GT Badges, GT gas cap, GT stripe, rear valance with exhaust exit and disc brake front end. The look is completed with a set of correct GT style wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich white letter tyres.

The rear seat is the fold down type and the dash features woodgrain highlights. The correct GT style steering wheel and GT Rally pack gauges are in place.
