1966 mustang coupe

This was my fathers car that be bought senior year of high school and has seen quite a few iterations through the years ranging from its “70’s street/strip” style now all the way to a bright red IMSA inspired, Maier flared fender track car. Its has some bumps and bruises over the years but still has the original 289 with a camaro Muncie rock crusher behind it. The next step for this will probably be a larger displacement small block with aluminum heads, and some modern brakes.
