Candy Red 1966 Mustang fastback owned by Dana Bowers from Ft Myers, Florida. This special paint is a two step process. A transparent (candy) red paint is applied over a silver basecoat. Notice how far the hood opens. This one has a set of special hinges which allows the hood to open farther than with stock hinges. The engine is a 302ci V8. Dana adds, "We had looked for about six months for a car when I found this one online for sale in Nashville, Tennessee . It was being used for 1/4 mile track racing. I think that is what saved the car as it never saw the road or bad weather. It has all original sheet metal and floor pans. We spent two years restoring and updating all the mechanicals and paint. Now we just enjoy showing and driving it."
