1966 Mustang Fastback K-code

1966 K code, 4 speed Mustang

This great little project Mustang for sale on eBay recently would be fun to tackle. It's a very desirable combination; The sleek 2+2 fastback body style along with the rare K-code 289 mated to a 4 speed manual transmission. The K code was the high performance (HiPo) engine Ford put in the early 1965-1967 Mustangs. This solid lifter small block was built for performance with 10.5:1 compression, a 4 bbl carburetor and 271 horsepower. The "K-code" designation comes from the VIN, where the 5th digit is a K signifying the HiPo 289 engine.

Too bad this particular Mustang doesn't have it's original engine or 4 speed transmission. Those are key elements to the value of this car, and although replacements can be found they are hard to get and won't be numbers matching when all is said and done.

But even if this Mustang doesn't end up being concours restored, it will still be a blast to drive if the new owner does it correctly.
