Description

Black as was the original, and indeed may be original vinyl buckets in front, and a rear bench in back with a fold down armrest. A jet age inspired center console swoops past the buckets, offers a center glovebox, and the standard 1960's cigarette setup, then turns to a wood veneer covering, and houses the window controls. As it moves forward it climbs to the dash, housing the temperature controls, and AM/8 Track radio. Up to the top of the dash where it turns to vinyl, are the futuristic wiper and air vent sliding toggles. These are reminiscent of the very same toggles used on the Starship Enterprise when it jumps to warp speed! The ultra-modern speedometer has numbers in squares, and a bar that rolls right as you gain speed. LOOK MA no needle indicator! This is fronted by 4 ball in cup stainless gauges, and the original tilt away steering wheel. A console is in the center of the headliner which is of the smooth buttoned vinyl style.
Standard fare for the 1966 Bird was the rock solid 390ci V8 producing 315hp, and a 3-speed C6 automatic transmission. A 3.00:1 ratio differential is noted, as well as front disc brakes were standard. The engine has the blue painted air cleaner cover, and valve covers. Our consignor states that a new Holley 4bbl carburetor has been installed and the original is included with the purchase. Looking mostly original and unrestored, this engine bay just needs a good detailing and new hood insulation to be up to snuff.
