Mustang 1966

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Red Metallic
Interior Color Black


This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible has a terrific GT-style appearance. As you take a closer look, you'll see that the exterior, interior, motor, and suspension all take it beyond classic pony car specs to deliver an upgraded performance machine. And because this wants to be your ultimate drop-top driver, you even get cold-blowing A/C.

The dark red color on this car is the product of quality respray later in life, and the clearcoat luster loves to show off the quality of the body panels. The reproduction trim tag says "Special" for the paint. While we don't have any evidence this is a factory designation, the way the metallic elements radiate in the sunlight certainly makes this convertible look special. It's nicely detailed in brightwork with everything from the bumpers to the optional luggage rack giving off a proper shine. This has all the best GT-style touches added, like the fog lights in the grille, triple rocker stripe, full badging (including the gas cap,) and the dual exhaust mounted through the rear valance. Plus, you get something extra. There are some sporty upgrades from later in the Mustang's first generation, like the Magnum 500 wheels and the color-matched Boss-style front splitter.

The black convertible top has a great look against the red, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive black interior. The door panels, carpeting, and dash are all in great condition. And this has the classic features you really love, like the wood-rimmed steering wheel and the premium "pony" package upholstery. There are also the right upgrades. You have added comfort with an armrest center console, AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. There are also the right features to remind you this is a speedy pony car, like the Hurst Promatic shifter and the classic Rally Pac with clock and tach.

The engine bay is a clean and mean look because you have a tidy and color-matched inner fenders, and those are joined by the added tubular bracing, including the Shelby-style Monte Carlo bar. At the center is a well-done 289 cubic-inch V8. This has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, Edelbrock intake, Ford Motorsport valve covers, and an aluminum radiator to help keep the full package running cool. You're also going to want to check out the undercarriage photos. This exceptionally fresh look to the suspension shows a big investment here that will give you added confidence on the road. Plus, it's a tighter handler with newer bushings, a thicker front sway bar, upgraded rear sway bar, and traction bars. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and upgraded front disc, and you really see how this is a sports car that's great for anytime driving.

This Mustang convertible has been upgraded for power, flair, and comfort. That's why you know it's an irresistible total package. Call now!
