Neatly-presented left-hand drive 302 Mustang: Restored in US

The Ford Mustang remains one of the most wide-reaching and archetypical classic cars – instantly recognisable to anyone with even a passing interest in things with four-wheels.

It birthed the Pony car movement and changed the landscape of personal motoring by making sports car both attainable and desirable.

400,000 were sold in their first year, with 22,000 orders lodged on opening day.

The vehicle architecture was simple, and with so many produced (with virtually limitless aftermarket support and enthusiast knowledge), old Mustang will be roaming the roads for years to come.


They’re widely available in Australia too, so if you’re after a neat weekend classic, they’re a sensible place to start looking.

This ’66 Mustang coupe was restored in the US and imported to Australia in 2010.

It’s fitted with a fully-rebuilt 302 Windsor V8 coupled to a four-on-the-floor manual.

Overall, it’s fairly well-presented throughout, with some discolouration seen in the interior carpets, and a spot of rust seen on the inside of the driver’s side door.


The engine bay is tidy, and overall makes for a reasonably-priced casual classic for the weekend.

The listing states that the car has always been garaged and stored out of the elements.

The Mustang was previously on NSW Club Plates and will be sold unregistered.

Listed for $32,000 and based in New South Wales, you can check out the full listing here!
