Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee presents this 1966 Ford Mustang
hardtop. Few cars spark the excitement and longevity as Ford's
original Mustang. Starting mid-year for the 1964 model year and
having its triumphant debut at the 1964 New York World's Fair in
Queens NY, the Mustang was the car that was in the right place at
the right time. Never before has a car been geared towards the
youth market and really having a deep focus on the young
professional women that had joining the work force in large numbers
after World War II. With its stylish good looks, the long hood,
short deck design was available in 3 body styles (Hardtop,
fastback, and convertible) many engine and transmission options and
an instant buzz, the Mustang was an immediate success. Ford built
it's 1 millionth Mustang within 2 years of its original debut and
over the past 56 years more than 10 million Mustangs have been
built and sold all over the world! The Mustang was not only a sales
success for Ford, but it quickly captured the psyche of American
pop culture. The Mustang could be seen in movies like Goldfinger
and Bullitt and there were even songs written about the Mustang,
Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" and Otis Redding's "Tramp" both
pay homage to the automobile. Ford really found themselves with a
smash hit on their hangs with the Mustang and ultimately sparked an
entirely new subgenre of car: The Pony Car. By the 1968 almost
every American auto manufacturer was offering a competitor to the
Mustang, cars like the Javelin, Firebird, Challenger, Camaro and
Cougar were all developed to compete with the phenom that is the
Ford Mustang. The popularity of the Mustang is so overwhelming that
a documentary of the car was made in 2015 called "A Faster Horse"
the explains the history of the Mustang and the development process
of the 6th generation Mustangs. Our featured Mustang is a wonderful
time capsule. Wearing a red paint job with a white vinyl top and
black vinyl seats. The car is powered by a durable 200 cubic inch
Inline-Six engine paired to a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic
transmission. The vehicle has a few interesting features like a
center console & air conditioning. The car also is equipped with
power steering, an AM radio, seat belts, white wall tires and
Mustang wheel covers. Take the wheel of a piece of automotive
history and an American icon in this sizzling '66 Mustang!
