1966 Ford Mustang GT K-Code

It is both an homage and a unique opportunity to own an otherwise unobtainable piece of history—the very first automobile.
J. J. Best Banc & Co.

Introduced late in the 1963 model year as an option in the compact Ford Fairlane, the powerful 271 hp High-Performance (Hi-Po) engine was added to the Mustang option chart in June 1964 — two months after the pony car’s introduction. From that point through the end of 1966, the Hi-Po engine would be the most potent factory powerplant available in a Mustang.

Ford engineers equipped the high-performance K-Code 289 cu in V8 with solid lifters and topped it with a performance-calibrated Autolite 4-barrel carburetor with manual choke. They also beefed up the engine’s internals to withstand the increased stresses that were sure to come. Ford said of the K-Code engine, “this powerful V-8 provides sports car performance to match Mustang’s sports car styling.” Weighing only 465 pounds, the potent Ford small-block V8 provided impressive acceleration and speed without adversely impacting handling.

The Ford coupe had the factory-spec rugged 4-speed Toploader manual gearbox and 9-inch Ford differential that contributed to the Hi-Po engine’s performance capability. Ordering the engine in a Mustang required a special handling package that included heavy-duty suspension components and a quicker-than-standard steering ratio.

Introduced in 1965, the Mustang GT equipment package included front disc brakes, white GT lower body stripes, distinctive ornamentation and a special grille bar with fog lights. The GT’s dual exhausts were routed through the rear valance panel and tipped with bright extensions. Just for flash, Ford also included unique dual red-stripe 6.95 x 14 tires. The Mustang’s original window sticker listed its GT equipment group and chrome styled steel wheels as separate options.

We are pleased to offer this superbly restored and authentic 1966 Mustang K-Code Coupe. This truly remarkable Mustang is factory-equipped with option packages that make it an all-in-one sports car, luxury car and performance car.

This Ragoon Red 1966 Mustang GT is one of only 5,469 Mustangs equipped with the K-Code 271 hp High-Performance 289 V8 engine during the 1966 model run. It was built in the autumn of 1965, and the original window sticker reveals the car was shipped from the factory to a Ford dealer in Hudson, Ohio. The coupe was titled to its first owner on November 29, 1965.

It was restored by CK Auto Restoration to their extremely high standards of excellence. The well-documented car was completely deconstructed before it was renewed by the shop in every detail, from top to bottom and inside out. Completed in 2007, the extraordinarily meticulous restoration resulted in what has to be one of the finest restored first-generation Mustangs out there.

Resplendent in red inside and out, the Mustang is a 65-B Coupe, which tells us it was built with the factory deluxe pony interior with its embossed vinyl trim. The deluxe interior décor also includes the wood-grain steering wheel and instrument panel appliques as well as a full-length console, which was an additional option. It also has the optional Rally-Pac, which added the clock and tachometer with the correct 8,000 rpm unit for a Hi-Po engine.

This stunning classic is highly sought-after by car collectors because of its rarity and its legacy as the first truly high-performance Mustang engine. The 1966 Ford Mustang is the most desirable of the pony cars of the era, and this is truly the best of the best. This was THE car to own in 1966, and this pristine example is one-of-a-kind with regard to its condition and options. Simply stated, there’s nothing finer.

With its especially striking color combination and authentic high-performance V8 powertrain, this wonderfully restored K-Code GT Luxury Coupe is sure to be a prized addition to any collection — be it the only Mustang in the stable or one of many.
