Looking for a classic Mustang in an uncommon color? How many have you seen finished in Emberglo Metallic? We have one at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This example was made in Ford?s San Jose, California factory (VIN code R) on April 6, 1966, and shipped to the Seattle, Washington sales area (DSO code 74), where it was reportedly originally sold by Fitzgerald Ford in Gig Harbor, Washington. The previous owner bought the car in 1990 and reportedly put approximately 7,000 miles on it. The car?s Emberglo Metallic paint (code V) and trim are in overall good order but there are blemishes visible at close range. The driver?s door was replaced prior to a repaint in 2019. The windshield wipers reportedly do not return to the base of the glass when shut off. Overall, the car?s bodywork is straight and told, the engine base is very tidy and its chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body. The Parchment vinyl, power-folding top looks great overall. This Pony rolls on Michelin XH4 radials, size 205/70R14 at every corner. Each tire is mounted to a steel wheel and topped with a chrome wire wheel cover. The tires and wheels are all in good, original order. The car was reportedly treated to a new brake master cylinder, brake hoses, brake shoes and wheel cylinders during 2020. Under the hood is a replacement 289 V-8 (C-Code) engine with a two-barrel carburetor and was reportedly rebuilt under previous ownership. This motor is linked to a C-4 three-speed automatic transmission (code 6) and backed by a 2.80:1 rear end (code 6). Driver convenience features include power steering. A dual exhaust and rear sway bar have been added. Inside, the Medium Emberglo and Parchment vinyl interior (code 64) bears the popular Pony motif. The front buckets and rear bench seats are in overall satisfactory order with blemishes at close range while the complementary Emberglo carpet look great. The three-spoke rimblow steering wheel is emblematic of the period. The two-toned inner door liners and dashboard are all in very good order. The dash has a pair of woodgrain inserts for added warmth. The shift lever is floor-mounted and there?s a factory AM radio in the dash but there is also a seldom-seen Pioneer KP-500 FM stereo with a cassette deck mounted the dash. The 1966 Mustang debuted with moderate trim changes including a new grille, side ornamentation, wheel covers, and gas cap. Ford's new C4 ?Cruise-O-Matic? three-speed automatic transmission became available for the 225 hp V-8. Many new paint and interior color options, an AM/eight-track sound system, and one of the first AM/FM mono automobile radios were also offered. It also removed the Falcon instrument cluster; the previously optional features, including the round gauges and padded sun visors, became standard equipment. The Mustang would be the best-selling convertible in 1966, with 72,119 sold, beating the number two Chevrolet Impala by almost 2:1. The 1965 and 1966 Mustangs are differentiated by variations in the exterior, despite the similar design. These variations include the emblem on the quarter-panels behind the doors. From August 1964 production, the emblem was a single vertical piece of chrome, while for 1966 models the emblem was smaller in height and had three horizontal bars extending from the design, resembling an ?E.? The front intake grilles and ornaments were also different. The 1965 front grille used a ?honeycomb? pattern, while the 1966 version was a ?slotted? style. While both model years used the ?Horse and Corral? emblem on the grille, but the 1965s had four bars extending from each side of the corral, while these bars were removed for the 1966s. Direct competition to this Mustang in 1966 was sparse, just the Plymouth Barracuda, which was launched a mere 16 days before the Ford in 1964. Together, the two cars are credited with creating the Ponycar field. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this classic Mustang convertible wearing a unique hue and interior.
