This Mustang is a rare matching numbers (body, engine & trans) Factory GT-K code. Collectors and enthusiasts are on the lookout for these GT K-code cars. The production run was limited so they are hard to find, making this car highly desirable.

The 1966 Ford Mustang GT K-CODE cars were a limited production High-Performance edition of the popular Mustang, less than 1% of all Mustangs were K-Codes and only 1,427 GT in total were produced.

With a 289 cubic inch V-8 featuring upgraded pistons, cylinder heads, carburettor, lifter heads, and connecting rods this modified engine puts out 271 HP. The upgrades didn't stop there. The entire drive train was designed to handle a high-performance engine with a special clutch, drive shaft, rear differential and suspension.

Because this is a performance-oriented vehicle it features a 4-speed transmission and for the same reason air conditioning and power steering were not available because they sapped performance.

Of course, the GT-K code cars had special badges to help identify this model including the front fender badge that reads HIGH PERFORMANCE 289. There is also a High Performance 289 decal on top of the air cleaner.

GT packages include front disc brakes, heavy-duty suspension, fog lamps, dual exhaust through the rear valance and a quick response steering box. Other features include the chrome engine dress up kit, trunk pass through door, styled steel wheels, and 8,000 RPM tach/rally pac. This is believed to be one of only 244 K-code GTs in the Fastback body style!

The history of this Mustang is very clear but arguments could be made over who was the original owner of the vehicle.

The Mustang was purchased 6th of November 1965 in Colorado and the original title listed the owners as Cadelario & Dorothy Soliz plus their son Ernest Soliz. Ernest then sold me the Mustang some 47 years later.

I was lucky enough to speak to Ernest before purchasing the vehicle and he explained the reason his parents were on the original title.

Ernests parents, as a form of bribery, were willing to co-purchase the car with him as he couldn't afford to buy one without a loan since he was still at university. Ernest was looking to enlist in the Vietnam war so as to be able to save enough money to buy the car.

Cadelario & Dorothy did not want their son to go off to war and were willing to help buy the car as long as he was able to repay them over a period of time.

Ernest did manage to pay his parents back and the title was transferred to Ernest & Rita Ann Soliz on the 27th of February 1969.

Ernest enjoyed the car for some 47 years. The Mustang had some restoration work done in the late 80s or early 90s and was garaged in Colorado before being moved to California, where it remained until I purchased it on 14th of April 2012.

Ernest was reluctant to sell the vehicle as it was his pride and joy, but due to illness and age, he was willing to sell it to another Mustang Enthusiast.

When the Mustang was delivered to me it even had the original number plates and the envelope they came in, plus the original Mustang Owners manual and Title.
