Steve Houghtaling’s 1966 Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback – pictured above- is in its original 1966 color, Nightmist Blue; 435HP 5.0L Coyote engine and 6R80 six-speed transmission with its sleek and aggressive lines.

Steve Houghtaling also owns a 1930 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster. Steve belongs to the Connecticut Model A Restoration Club (CMARC) and recently became the Vice President. Steve Houghtaling’s 1931 Ford Model A Convertible Sedan, also known as the A400, embodies the perfect blend of elegance, versatility, and open-air exhilaration. Houghtaling is the Vice President of the A400 Group – this particular model is one of the rarest of all Model A’s, thus has its own special interest group (SIG) that has global members.

Steve Houghtaling is currently organizing the A400 SIG meeting at this year’s MARC (Model A Restoration Club) National Meet in Hamilton, OH. His A400 will be entered in the “fine point” or “blue ribbon” categories of Restored Class at the MARC National Meet. His A400 won the “MAFCA Award of Excellence” at last summer’s MAFCA National Convention in Kerrville, TX.
