Original K-Code: 1966 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

We often see sellers frustrated by non-paying winning bidders, but the story of this 1966 Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback is one of frustration for a different reason. A technical glitch appears to have seen most of the photos disappear from their listing, leaving only three to tell this car’s story. However, the seller is approachable and is willing to supply additional images of a classic that presents beautifully. The impressions are that this gem would suit a meticulous buyer seeking a car that needs nothing. The seller has listed the GT here on eBay in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. The price has climbed to $55,600 as a result of frantic bidding action. I’m unsurprised that it remains short of the reserve.

From the moment I laid eyes on the First Generation Mustang, my dream car was a ’66 GT Fastback with a K-Code V8 under the hood. Therefore, this car ticks almost every box on my Wish List. My preferred paint shade is Ivy Green, but I wouldn’t object to finding this Aztec Gold classic parked in my garage. It presents superbly following a restoration performed fifteen years ago. Most of the exterior steel is original, but the process included replacing the rear quarter panels, wheel wells, floors, trunk pan, and rear rails. The car is now rust-free and could almost be considered in showroom condition. The paint shines beautifully, with it and the panels appearing flawless. That theme continues with the trim and glass, and the Mustang rolls on spotless factory chrome wheels. The interior features Black trim that is described as excellent. The original owner ordered the car with the Rally-Pac gauges, and this car retains them with the correct 8,000rpm tachometer. All of this is merely the entree because it is what hides below the skin that makes this GT stand out. Its engine bay houses a numbers-matching K-Code 289ci V8. It sends 271hp to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. This is the ultimate version of the 1966 Mustang that hadn’t received the Shelby touch and can storm the ¼-mile in 14.8 seconds. The positive news continues because the engine received a rebuild during the restoration. This GT is in excellent mechanical health, running and driving perfectly. It retains its original stamps and Tags, and the owner includes the original Build Sheet confirming the car’s credentials.

The lack of photos hasn’t harmed the sales potential of this 1966 Mustang GT, with the car receiving thirty-nine bids at the time of writing. It confirms that people like what they see, and I can hardly blame them. I expect the bidding to comfortably pass $70,000 before the hammer falls, which places this stunning classic beyond my reach. If you make a play for this GT and are successful, I am happy to work as your chauffeur. I won’t even charge for my service because I’m that type of guy! What do you say?

    K-code, GT, fastback, styled wheels, rally-pac…. if it’s got the deluxe (Pony) interior and a console, it’s a holy grail Mustang. K-codes were the only early Mustangs with VIN stamps on the block, so the “numbers matching” assertion is appropriate.

    It’s gorgous. I prefer Wimbledon white over a red interior. But if be very happy with it. Can’t believe the money these go for. Still if I had the money. I’d buy it

    Interesting quarter panels. Wheelwell arches seem to be non-existent and the side scoop body lines don’t quite align with those on the door.

      Mike, you nailed it. The rear wheel arches should have a slight lip to them. And the quarter panels belie the fact that they’re inferior replacements, poorly aligned with the doors.

      This would drive me nuts, but then I’m just a little compulsive.

      Well, maybe a lot…

        I’m really disappointed I didn’t catch that. Good job, guys! Now that I see it I can’t look away . . . .

        The V emblems on the front fenders are also different distances from the body line. New quarters and fenders and ?????????

    I do not buy the ebay lost the photos story. Even if they did the seller is not new to ebay, they have over 3500 feedbacks. They should know that they can go back to any active listing at any time and revise the listing. That means that they can easily add those photos back onto the listing.

    If someone pays that much for it they’re going to be disappointed. That’s some of that old a/m sheet metal that wasn’t stamped right but the tech could have made it look right if he’d cared to do so.

    Don’t walk away. Run! If something as obvious as the wheel arch missing on the replacement quarters didn’t get their attention, what else did they “miss”?
    The only way to properly correct this is to replace the quarters-again. 🤯
    I listed a beater project ‘64 Ranchero for $1500, and had considerably more pics.
    A buddy of mine bought a ‘66 Fastback in about ‘72–‘73 for $800. 289/3 speed all synchro. Disc brakes. Those were the days.

    They sure were the days. When I was a kid Dad bought 65-66 mustangs every couple years till they got to “old” to be reliable daily drivers . I always wanted one. By the time I was old enough to drive , they were a “classic” and going for 2500.00 drivable. A lot of money for a 16 year old. Now that I’m almost as old as the mustang they go for this kind of money. A lot for my income bracket. Oh well

    This seems to be at best a misrepresentation; maybe that’s why there are “missing” pictures.
