This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible is an American icon with a
classic style, V8 power, and some cool upgrades. So dig into the
details on a drop-top legend that's priced within reach.
Springtime Yellow is the factory-correct color. It was already
quite bright, but this example benefits from a more recent respray
that really gives it a nice glow. Of course, the reason why this
all looks so good is that the panels are straight and the gaps are
good. So you have great body lines that highlight why the first-gen
Mustang is an icon. Plus, all the iconic brightwork elements are in
place, such as the correct grille with the running pony emblem, 289
badges on the fenders, three-element taillights, and the wraparound
chrome bumpers. This even has the rear luggage rack - a stylish but
seldom-seen feature. And there's a nice touch of added polish from
the classic American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. The overall
impression is a thoughtful car with a driver-quality style... and
that makes for a thoughtful cruiser. Even the white walls go well
with the cream-white convertible top.
With the flip of a switch, the cream-colored roof powers down to
reveal a cream-colored upholstery. There are also tasteful black
accents on the newer dash pad, classic grippy steering wheel, and
plush carpeting. Mustang fans will get excited to see the rare
front bench seat option. The trim tag tells us this was not from
the factory, but you don't have to pay us extra to keep it a
secret. Some more upgrades are easy to spot, like the AM/FM/CD
stereo and color-matched convertible boot. Others are worthwhile
fundamentals that you don't always see, like the new floor pans.
And there are additional cool extras or even more potential. The
Rally Pac is in place if you would like to get the tach full
working, and the components to re-install air conditioning also
come with the sale.
This is a C-code car, so it's nice to have a proper 289 cubic-inch
V8. The engine bay has a very stock style, including an attractive
blue glow from the air grabber and valve covers. We also like these
motors because they are a hardy powerplant that's easy to upgrade
and downright fun to tune. A classic like this is built to feel the
road, but you still have nice cruiser features, like automatic
transmission, power steering, and an updated front sway bar.
You already know that first-generation Mustang convertibles are
always in demand. And so this one offers the right cruiser style
with plenty of the best unique vintage features. Call now!
