Want to Trade or sell 1966 Ford Mustang 289 V8 for 1957-60 Ford F100 - $16000 (berkeley)
I want to trade or sell. I am looking for a 1958 to 1960 Ford F100 V8(maybe a straight 6) in excellent shape. As good as my Mustang to do a trade. This is the history of the car.
From 1966 to May 1997, this beauty was one family owned, handed down from father to son. In 1994 the son decided to restore the car. He had Mustang Mechanic in Fremont convert the car from a I6 to a Hi-Po 289 V8(225HP version, not the 275HP). They also upgraded the car's transmission(c4 select shift transmission, much better than the green dot. The best transmission for a Mustang), rear axle, brakes, and leaf springs to V8 specs. The front brakes were converted to disc, power steering was added, and dual exhaust was fitted. To top off the work he had the car painted its current Cherry Red.
The Mustang was garage kept from day one, and treated like one of the family. In the next few years more things were done. Dual circuit power brakes (a huge improvement over the stock setup,) upgraded the front suspension with KYB shocks(GT Pack suspension and GT hood grille) and an 1 ⅛" sway bar, and serviced the car regularly. I kept all the records going back to the 1994 restoration. Since 1997 the car has had just over 10,000 miles put on it. The car is ready to go having just had an oil change, carburetor rebuild, new battery, and a coolant flush. All doors, windows and locks were lubed at Mustang Magic in Fremont. All panels were removed and lubricated.
Car was garage kept, rust free California car. The odometer shows just over 53,000 miles, and she is laser straight and accident free. Her automatic transmission shifts perfectly. The power steering and power disc brakes make her a breeze to control. The paint shows brilliantly and the chrome is super shiny. The interior is fresh, clean, and in beautiful shape. While not a show car, she will make someone a great classic driver. A perfect candidate for your first classic car. Low insurance, easy to find parts, and great Mustang community to support you.
You can not find a better handling Mustang anywhere.
