    Just like the title says. I am most likely getting a 1966 Mustang Coupe in a couple weeks. It needs cosmetic work inside and out. I'd like to see pics of any kinds or styles of '64 1/2-'66 Mustangs you all have. I'm looking for all kinds of pics. Inside, outside, wheel pics, etc. I have a couple ideas of things I want to do, but I'd like to see what you all have to help give me some ideas.

    Thanks in advance :nice:

    My first car was a baby turd yellow 66 Coupe. Had a I6 and a 3spd. Put a 302 from a Torino ? in it , it would move out okay. Dont paint it baby turd yellow. People will point and laugh. I know from experience. :D My buddy has a great looking 66 candyapple red coupe. Ill see if he has any pics.
    Cool name too ! :nice:

    I'd love to see the pics of your buddy's car. Candyapple Red is the color my girlfriend wants me to get it painted. I love that color.

    And thanks for the compliment :nice:

    Here's a shot of my interior...

    :: Disclaimer :: Keep in mind I've always driven it daily (rain or snow) and I work with animals... A dirty job. :l :: Disclaimer ::

    Only thing's I added are new front seat covers, the middle humphugger armrest thingy, smaller steering wheel (no more hitting my legs on it), foot gas pedal (I love that), and in-dash CD player.
    Other than that... it's completely original.

    Almost forgot... the inside was egged a few months ago (left my window open)... I never got all of the stains out of some places... :nonono:

    Penguin: Thanks for the interior shot. How do you like that arm rest/console?

    Dodgestang: Wow. That's a nice car. Almost the exact color I want to paint mine. Just want it a little darker. Did you have trouble installing the Bullitt seats? What about how they move since I know the driver's seat is supposed to be power. Were you able to bypass the power option? Or did you some how hook it up?

    Blue66stang: Nice video. Car sounds really nice. :nice:

    BobV: Nice videos. Nice pics. Nice car!

    Thanks everyone for posting what you have. I've already gotten a couple ideas that I'd be interested in doing to my car when I get it.
