K-Code Trailer Find: 1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback

If you’re like me, you wonder how many of the hundreds of random tractor trailers you see are hiding classic muscle cars inside, similar to storage lockers and old barns. There’s plenty of evidence that the old timers stored cars this way, such as is the case with this 1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback K-Code. The Mustang, listed here on eBay, left the factory with an impressive build sheet, much of which has been stripped away with the car in its current form.

The seller notes the Mustang is a genuine K-Code car that unfortunately does not have its original drivetrain – or any drivetrain – currently installed. What a honey of a car this must have been, having rolled off the assembly line wearing Springtime Yellow paint with the deluxe pony interior, disc brakes, and the 289 V8. The body has obviously been repainted and the engine yanked.

Fortunately, the black pony interior is still present. The seller notes he found the Mustang in the 18-wheeler trailer where it had been parked for 30 years. The trailer was located in Texas, but the Mustang is a Louisiana car now back in the Bayou State. The seller notes no other parts are included other than what you see here, and that he has a clean title for the car.

The seller states that the K-Code VIN numbers can be found on the inner back fender panels, but that the inner fender panel is no longer original; same story up front as the matching hood and one door was changed, along with the door data tag. Still, for a highly-optioned car not past the point of saving, I hope to one day see it wearing Springtime Yellow paint and sporting a 289.

    Certainly enough there to save. May not come up as original but it could come up as a fun build.

    Price is pretty high considering that there’s a lot of rust and no drive line.

    If someone is looking for a car to do a full replace every panel restoration this would be a good one.

        I sell you (4) 65 or 66 roofs for 3k Rob ….the 67 roofs bring the money (much better looking)….65 or 66 not so much. And most cars left that have a good roof to donate are most likely a better candidate to restore then to donate a roof to a regular coup car!
        All you would end up is a fast back body style on a coup that is worth less then a real fastback while spending more money to do so. However the ones that usually do this change use the vin and tags form the sports roof car. Which is not really legal in most states and kinda fraudulent.

    This Stang was put away for the glue factory and with missing engine, trans , rear end and tag pieces is overpriced.

    Yes the title is probably real but nom still takes away from car .. finding a highpo yet alone one within 90 days of build is a big stretch…..
    just my opinion but save your money and look elsewhere 🤔
    I am sure folks will bid this Mustang up
    and go cra cra anyway 🙃

    Over priced but it’s worth it to some folks. Good for restoration
