AutoHunter Spotlight: 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 Restomod

A premium build on America’s favorite pony car

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 restomod. The result of a one-off build by Sabas Customs, this 347-powered fastback is connected to a TREMEC TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission. Other features include a custom frame, adjustable coilovers, Wilwood disc brakes, keyless entry, and much more. Finished in silver and matte gray over a tan leather interior, this first-generation Mustang comes from the selling dealer with a clear title.

As part of a $200,000+, five-year build by Sabas Customs of Grand Junction, Colorado, the body was given a custom silver and matte gray paint job. Features include LED headlights, external hood latches, hood scoop, mesh C-pillar inserts, and dual rear valance-exit exhaust outlets. The door handles have been shaved and replaced with remote door poppers.

The 17 x 7-inch front/18 x 9-inch rear Forgeline wheels are respectively wrapped in 225/45R17 and 245/45R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires.

The 2+2 cabin has been customized with a tan leather interior that includes a leather-wrapped dashboard and transmission tunnel in lieu of a console. Other features include tilt steering column, push-button start, wood-rimmed steering wheel, power steering, E-Stopp electric parking brake, and Bluetooth-capable audio system.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, voltage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure.

The 347cid V8 is equipped with a Quick Fuel Technology carburetor and sends power to the rear wheels through a TREMEC TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission with hydraulic clutch. Engine bay components include an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, MSD ignition system, and Wilwood master cylinder. The battery has been relocated to a custom box in the trunk.

The original frame has been replaced with a custom unit, with the suspension being upgraded with adjustable coilovers. Braking is handled by manual Wilwood disc brakes with cross-drilled and slotted rotors — six-piston calipers up front, four-piston out back.

The auction for this 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 restomod ends Monday, November 6, 2023, at 12:30 p.m. (PDT)

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
