Smally's 66 Coupe
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:38:44 PM »
I have posted photo's up on here before in other sections, but thought it was time to start my own thread. I've had a few old Fords before including a Mk1 Capri, XC GS 351, XT ute 351 & an XY GS that I owned for 29 years before selling it to make way for my first Mustang.

Found this one in Melbourne on Gumtree & got a couple of very helpful members from here to check it out for me. Did a quick trip over in one of our work trucks to pick it up a couple of weeks ago & loving it! 1966 C code auto that's been in Oz since 2012. Guy I bought it from got it from an importer in QLD, gave it a paint job & went thru the mechanicals. Still not 100% sure if I like the wheels, might try some wider tyres on the back & see how it looks then.

Just have to wait for the SA rego laws to change next month to get it registered over here.

Its a great looking 66 Smally,
I havent seen those mags on a 65/66.
They look good, I reckon they might grow on ya.
Are they 17 inch ?

Why sell an Australian icon like the GS for a 66 mustang? Cant be for investment reasons the Aussie stuff is going through the roof.

BTW the Mustang looks great so congrats! Just interested in why you switched from the locals. :cheers:
Always dreamed I'd have one!

Cheers. Yeah they are 17x7 Cragar Eliminators. I was going to swap the rears for 8's but they have stopped making them.

The old GS needed a full body resto that I no longer have the time or patience for. The stang is turn key & enjoy! It made sense to me, plus selling the GS funded half of the stang  :thumb:

Turn key is nice, I hope you enjoy. Love the old Fords but almost out of the price range now. :cheers:
