We all love the original pony car as a true collectable. But few
come with as good documentation as this 1966 Ford Mustang. That how
we have a recognized low-mileage car where even the V8 under the
hood is believed to be original!
It's awesome to know the full history on a car. This one started
life as Texas coupe, and the woman sold it in 1977. It stayed with
the second owner under long term care (and climate-controlled
storage) until 2015. Now the third owner is making it available
again. So that means you have the opportunity to be only the fourth
person to take this home in over half a century of history! And
this car is the right one for the kind of person who wants to tell
its story. The Sahara Beige paint is the factory-correct color, and
it was a limited edition only available in 1966. This did receive
one respray in the 1980s, but the way it looks today really
solidifies that this was a well-respected coupe (after all, this
has only averaged about 1,050 miles annually.) So it has the right
premium hue to look like a dignified elder with a story to tell.
Great body lines, bright chrome bumpers, and a touch of elegance
from Mustang wire wheel covers all add up to an impressive coupe
frozen in time.
Inside is the factory-correct Parchment with Palomino trim. This
has its roots in Texas, and this interior has the earthy appeal of
the prairie. The owner states this is the original interior for the
car, and it's hard to find a thing out of place (yes, the center
console is removable.) The carpeting, upholstery, door panels,
dash, and headliner all have a time capsule quality. Even the
original trunk mat is beneath protective carpeting. There are
terrific classic details, like the crisp floor shifter, and the AM
radio is still there for display. Plus, the correct under dash air
conditioning unit is still blowing nice and cold. The right pony
cars were great driver's machines, and so you have front bucket
seats, a grippy sports steering wheel, and full instrumentation,
including Rally Pac tach/clock combo.
This is a C-code coupe, and so we love lifting the hood to see the
bright blue V8 block, matching air topper, and big blue air grabber
with 289 cubic-inch callout. And because we have such a long
maintenance file, it's easy to believe the consignor's claim that
this is the original motor for the car. The same goes for the
three-speed automatic transmission. While it all looks quite stock
on top, there are some key upgrades underneath that keep this a
terrific cruiser. This includes a newer gas tank, stainless dual
exhaust, and power front disc brakes.
The big history file includes title documentation, the owner's
manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. It all proves
that this is a true special pony for those whole love a
well-respected classic. Are you ready to write your chapter in this
car's history? Call now!
