Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode # 87: 1966 Ford Mustang 289 K-Code Video
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The "K" in the 5th VIN position has special meaning to early Mustang fans, and this 1966 version is a perfect example of why! The K code cars featured not only the 271 HP 289 V8, they also rode on a performance suspension system. We take a look at a Signal Flare Red K-Code from the Brothers Collection to learn more.
This week, we move off the mark from the typical Muscle Car into the world of mid 1960's luxury sedans, only to find that this 1 of 3 ever built 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 LTD is sporting an 427 for power! The high-compression, dual-quad side-oiler V8 is coupled to a 4-speed transmission and a 4.11:1 rear gear, making this car one of the most comfortable drag racers ever built! This luxo-liner LTD is one of the many unique rides in the Brothers Collection.
In this episode, we share the entire interview with Stan Antlocer, former driver and owner of the "World's Fastest Pontiac Tempest". We featured Stan and the Tempest in a Muscle Car Of The Week video, but this V8 Radio podcast contains all the stories from the full interview. To say Stan has been around the block a few times is an understatement... we're fortunate he shared some of his stories with us.
This week, we're showcasing a Bright Gold Metallic 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 302. This is one of the high-revving "hybrid" engine cars which resulted from the homologation rules of Trans Am racing, which dictated the automakers needed to make a street version of the cars raced in Trans Am. This meant the 302 cube V8 that was built from a Windsor block and topped with Cleveland heads needed to be readily available to the public. Add to that the low-slung suspension, high-impact graphics, and other performance touches and you have a hot performer that was great fun to drive. From the Brothers Collection.
