    I'll stick it back in the corner if you ever change your mind. I was hoping you were closer. I totally understand, I'm the same way. I'm sure if your patient you'll find what your looking for. If I see something listed, craigslist, whatever, I'll send it along. I spent years chasing parts for my Fairlane, that's half the fun. Terry

    Thanks Terry - appreciate it - yes I'm very patient, so hopefully I'll find my parts (and car) at some point. Btw, speaking of Fairlanes, a friend of mine had his '64 K Code Fairlane featured in the Feb. 2021 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines - beautiful car with a wonderful history.

    I have a 66 VIN stamped block dated 6G20. I purchased it years ago. Upon teardown I had the block and crank magnafluxed. The block came back with a crack showing in the water jacket on the rear of the block (you can't see it) and a small one if the lifter valley, also not visible by naked eye, but it showed up on the test. I ended up parting out everything. Given the newer developments in crack repairs, epoxies, etc. I think it could be repaired. There's no caps, those were sold long ago. VIN decodes it was a fastback. It's yours if you want it. I think it's still standard, I'd have to check.


    Thank you very much for the generous offer - I really do appreciate the gesture and the information! I'm very finicky and particular (being an engineer, I can't help it ; )) - I'm going to contuniue my search to find a block, but again, thank you very much! This offer really shows your true enthusiasm in the hobby and willingness to help other enthusiasts!

    Thank you everyone - I'm not going to buy it, as I was just alerted yesterday by Fred that early Fastbacks never came with 5-bolt blocks. I did feel the price was very high without the caps. Also, it wasn't Magnafluxed.

    Oh great - thanks for alerting me to this - I didn't know of this important fact - I have to re-review my literature and make note of this. So coupes and convertibles only? Thank you


    I am currently searching for a '65/'66 Fastback K-Code and simultaneously searchng for parts to build my own engine to put into it. If the car that meets my criteria has a numbers-matching engine, I will be setting it aside to preserve it and will put my own build in it. I am searching for a K-code with good provenance, history, and ideally a racing history. (I have a want-ad on this site as well)

    Thank you! Yes, I was going to have it Magnafluxed if I purchase it. I don't necessarily need a 5-bolt, so not sure I want to pay a premium for one due to rarity. A clean, standard-bore 6-bolt (or ideally an entire HiPo engine) was my initial search plan.

    Thank you very much Fred. I’m happy to be a member of this fantastic resource.


    Congratulations on all the hard work you have done to create this valuable reference for the classic Mustang community.

    Hi,


    I'm a new member to this site - what a fantastic resource for K-Code afficianados! I have always been a vintage Ford and vintage Ferrari guy. I'm also a HUGE Weber carburetor enthusiast - especially when set-up correctly on a 289.


    I'm currently in the search for a 1965/66 K-code Fastback (see my posted want ad). I prefer a non-numbers matching car, as this car will be exercised in non-competitive road-course events, but still with period-correct performance equipment, and concours-level details such as fasteners, finishes, etc. Modern safety equipment (harnesses, etc) will be the only non-period correct details. I'm very respectful of these cars and their history!

    Hi - thank you for responding!


    I saw the post about your car in the new members section. If this is the vehicle you are looking to potentially sell, I am really looking for a 63A body code (Standard interior). However, I would make some exceptions if this particular car has substantial documentation (past owner titles, receipts, broadcast sheet, etc.), please let me know if this is the case.

    Hi,


    I’m looking for a 1965/66 K-Code Fastback. Standard black interior, open to many exterior colors. I would actually prefer a non-matching numbers car or a rolling chassis, but would consider a matching numbers vehicle as well, depending on its history.


    In either case, the vehicle will ideally have a documented ownership history, and I would especially prefer a past racing history.


    Thank you for your consideration.
