This beautiful '66 Mustang Convertible has a beautiful combination of classic originality, a slightly modified stance, and a drive line that has some great giddy-up and has all the features you would want to make it a pleasure to drive. I know this car pretty well as I actually sold it about 4 years ago to a gentleman in California. I had purchased the car 4 years ago from a guy who purchased it from Volo Auto Musuem. The restoration was done about 5 years prior so it has now been done about 9 years. You would never know it as the paint, body, interior still looks awesome and the car runs and drives extremely well. I will do my best to include enugh images, a video so you can hear it running and an honest description to help you decide if this White Stallion is the one you should own! I am also a transport broker so I can get you a great rate on Enclosed Transport anywhere in the country. I also welcome overseas buyer and can assist in getting it to the port of your choice. Sit back and enjoy!!
As I mentioned this Wimbledon White Stallion has a gorgeous body. Body panels are extremely straight and overall body panel fit is excellent. I do not see any signs of rust repair and believe this '66 still wears all of its original sheet metal. This in and of itself is rare to find. All of the chrome trim, bumpers, and emblems look close to new. The restoration that was done was clearly done by a professional and this car has been pampered and shows very few flaws. I noticed a few very small chips that have been touched up and extremely small hairline cracks in the paint in the seams behind the convertible top which is quite common. I do not think any of these flaws will show in pics and most people would not even notice these minor flaws. Overall the paint and body look fantastic and this '66 will definitely win its share of trophies at the local shows if that is what you enjoy. As you can see from the original door tag this car was actually Nightmist blue originally and received a color change to Wimbledon white. You would never know as there is no sign of the original blue color anywhere that I can see. All of the glass is in great condition and windows roll up and down nicely. Weatherstripping all appears to have been replaced and looks great. This White Stallion stands tall and has a great stance partially due to the like new set of 17″ Rev Polished wheels.
I hope the next lucky owner will enjoy this White Stallion with the top down as much as possible but it is also nice to know that the top on this Pony convertible is in close to brand new condition and works perfectly. The white on white color combination is really classy and this Pony looks almost as good with the top up as it does with it down in my opinion. The rear window is crystal clear and the top seals up very nicely and latches down with ease. When the top is down there is a brand new boot cover for a very clean look.
Complimenting the beautiful Wimbledon White exterior is an absolutely stunning light blue and parchment Deluxe Pony Interior that looks practically brand spanking new! Everything appears to have been replaced inside this car and from the original trim tag it appears that the interior was professionally upgraded from a standard blue interior to the highly desired Blue and white Luxury Pony interior. This includes the upgraded door panels, courtesy lights in the doors, correct seat covers, Deluxe Woodgrain steering wheel and woodgrain dash bezel and glove box door. Everything from the dash pad to the carpeting looks to be new and looks fantastic. Full length center console looks great and an aftermarket console was added with cup holders and added storage. An awesome Custom auto sound digital retro stereo was neatly mounted in the original radio hole with speakers in the front kick panels. A subwoofer and amp were neatly mounted in the trunk As if this was not enough, there is also Sirius Satellite radio installed in the flip up area of the center console so you can listen to all your favorite music when desired. An awesome Hurst 4-speed shifter with white shifter ball was added for a period correct look. All of the gauges and lights appear to be functioning correctly. The rare and very desirable Rally Pac is mounted on the steering column and the tach is working great but clock does not appear to be working. . Seat belts for front and rear passengers and a great set of blue Pony floor mats finish out the interior. You will be proud to show this car off!
At this point hopefully you agree that this '66 Mustang Convertible looks awesome inside and out and now maybe you are wondering if it runs and drives as good as it looks. Absolutely!!!! When i had bought it 4 years ago I had put about 40 miles on it the day it arrived and it performed great. I drove it again when I bought it back and it drove exactly the same...I was really impressed by how smooth it shifts, how great it sounds how easily it handles. I was told the 347 Stroker motor was built by ATK Performance Engines out of Texas. In fact the car had ATK valve covers on it when I got it but I decided to go back to a stock chrome valve cover for more originality. When we replaced the valve covers it was obvious that this is a very fresh motor as the valve train is super clean and fresh. Aluminum intake and Edelbrock 4bbl feed the fuel and a great set of ceramic coated headers breathe out back through the dual exhaust with dynomax mufflers for a sweet tone. I would estimate horsepower to be at right about 275hp.. She fires right up thanks in part to the MSD ignition. The engine bay is nicely detailed out and to most will look like a stock 289. With plenty of power, this White Stallion is also a factory 4-speed car and has a great period correct Hurst shifter that glides through the gears nicely. Handling is also a breeze thanks to the power steering and for safe and easy braking this Mustang Classic has upgraded Power front disc brakes!! Suspension all appears to have been updated and this Mustang not only handles the road beautifully but does so quietly without any creaks and rattles. Awesome stance thanks to the 17″ Rev Polished Aluminum wheels wrapped in a like new set of Nitto Neo Gen Radials 225/45/17 in rear and 215/45/17 up front. There is also a matching spare in the trunk with jack.

As impressive as the paint and body are, the undercarriage is equally as impressive. We could see quite a bit of red oxide primer poking through a very light black paint in sections of the floors so we spent a day and wiped the black paint away to discover some fantastic original floor pans with original red oxide primer and original drip marks from the factory. It is possible that the drivers front floor pan may have been replaced but if so it was done top notch. Torque boxes are rock solid and have not been bent up. Front frame rails are about as nice as I have seen and rear frame rails the same. This is a very impressive car everywhere you look. This includes the trunk area that is also rock solid and nicely detailed with correct plaid mat. They did add a sub woofer and amp in the trunk but it was done neatly. If you have checked out Classic Mustangs in the past I think you will appreciate how nice the undercarriage is and it is truly indicative of who well cared for this car was over the years. This Pony has the original Buck tag on the fender, original vin # stamping on the inner fender, and the original door tag.
Overall just a stunning Classic Mustang Convertible that is ready to show and go!!! Asking price is $42,500 and serious buyers can call me at 770-359-8400 to discuss.
There was a new twist in the Ford vs. Chevy rivalry when it came to cars being searched during the month June on the ClassicCars.com marketplace. That twist was a Ford vs. Ford rivalry in which all-years Mustangs overtook all-years Ford in one of the two search lists. Oh, by the way, that all-years search […]
Dream Giveaway Garage and CJ Pony Parts are offering a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet as a grand prize in support of veterans’ and kids’ charities. It’s an opportunity to win a very rare, low-mileage classic. But there are only six more days to enter. The Pony Car Wars in the United States had […]
I was never a Fox Body Mustang fan, per se. It certainly was a big improvement on the Mustang II, but it never made me want to own one. I would however discover in auto crossing that these cars were far nimbler in the F-Street Class than my Pontiac Firebird. Being here at the ClassicCars.com […]
In the course of three weeks, I drove three performance cars: the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 455 horsepower from a 6.2-liter small block with direct injection; the Dodge Charger Scat Pack with 485 horsepower from a normally aspirated 392 Hemi; and the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium with 332 horsepower from a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC […]
Ford is bringing back its heralded Mustang Mach I, and plans to do so this spring, which apparently means between now and the first day of summer, which this year is June 20. Note: This is the Mustang Mach I, not the Mach E, so it’s a high-performance sports coupe, not a utility vehicle, and […]
You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
“This is how we World Premier during quarantine!” Ken Block says. “Three guys locked down in different parts of the country, using video chat to give you the FIRST LOOK at what might be the very next ‘Hoonicorn’ project! “Check it out as I chat with Ash Thorp (Hollywood graphic artist and designer of the […]
Sometimes collector cars are bought simply because of their rarity and value. But sometimes they are bought because of their story. For example, Jay Leno says he doesn’t buy cars, he buys stories. The Pick of the Day is a car with a story. The car is a 1978 Ford Mustang II, certainly not widely […]
With a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT leading the way and selling for £63,250 ($79,320), England’s H&H Classics reports that its April 29 online auction posted £600,000 ($752,500) in revenue with a 70 percent sell-through rate. “The sale attracted some 387 online bidders with log-ins from as far afield as California and New Zealand,” the […]
Maybe we need the police to investigate this one because the Pick of the Day is an intriguing offer but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com doesn’t answer all of our questions. The car is an unusually all-black 1989 Ford Mustang with dog-dish hubcaps and what appears to be a lowered stance. That would make sense since […]
