First, we have to tell you that this classic pony car didn't come from a time capsule. The reason it looks so good is that it underwent full restoration. According to the vendor, this process ate a lot of money, alongside the modern bits and pieces that were equipped to it.
The engine is on the list, as it is a new crate motor. It has a 347 cubic-inch displacement and produces 450 horsepower (456 ps/336 kW) and 450 pounds of torque (610 Nm). The V8 works in concert with an automatic transmission and is punchy enough to allow the car to take a swing at more modern machines in a straight-line sprint.
Its future owner will certainly enjoy the air conditioning and the modern brakes with discs on all four wheels. This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible has only covered 1,342 miles (2,160 km) since the restoration was complete, so you're looking at a brand-new 58-year-old car. As for the asking price, you will have to cough out $107,900 for it.
As a result, it costs as much as two brand-new 2024 Mustang GTs, with the V8-powered model starting at nearly $43,000 before destination. The slightly punchier Dark Horse can be had from almost $60,000 excluding destination and dealer fees, and for the range-topping Dark Horse Premium, interested parties will have to pony out at least $63,480.
This old-timer costs more than the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, too, which can be yours from $68,300. Realistically speaking, it would be easier to find a needle in a haystack than a base Stingray in the bowtie brand’s dealer lots, so you should get ready to pay much more than that for one. As for the electrified E-Ray, with its punchy assembly and AWD, it starts at $104,900, and the Z06 comes from $112,700. So, which one would you buy on a $100k+ budget?
