1966 Mustang V8 Convertible
All of our wedding parties who use our 1966 Mustang V8 Convertible have had nothing but positive comments. From all of the couples who use our car and chauffeur as part of their day, to the Groom who burst into tears when his new wife had booked us to collect him. All of them adore great sound, the style, the looks and love the cheers from passers-by on route.
Our Mustang rolled off the production line in Metuchen, New York on 23 March 1966, spending the next 42 years in New York City. Very little is known about the car’s history in the USA, other than the last owner being a lawyer in Brooklyn. The Mustang has undergone a full four- year restoration, where the car was stripped back to a bare shell and every part either repaired to new condition or replaced: mechanically, bodywork and trim.
The restoration included a full bare metal respray in original Ford Silver Blue Iridescent paint, in June 2012. The restoration enabled us to carry out a number of sympathetic upgrades to ensure safety and comfort. The front suspension and brakes have been upgraded to original Ford GT specification to ensure a smooth ride and safe stopping distance, and the engine has been upgraded over the winter of 2015 to 352 cubic inches or 5.8litres with a much more powerful cam. This enhances the great Mustang sound when needed, with a great exhaust note which ranges from a lovely V8 burble at idle to a head turning V8 roar! The Mustang has also been fitted with 3 point seatbelts in the front and lap belts in the rear. The original radio has been rebuilt to keep the same look, but using new electronic parts which allows us to plug MP3 and iPods/phones straight into the car for bespoke playlists where required.
The car also benefits from a power soft top, enabling us to very quickly drop or raise the roof in 10-15 seconds to allow you to travel wind free, dropping the top for photo opportunities and allowing you to arrive in style. If the weather is inclement, we can quickly raise the top during the journey if needed. Please enquire early to check availability for your wedding.
