1966 MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE
In April 1964, Ford introduced the Mustang, the most successful model launch for Ford since the Model A. All sales records were smashed with 22,000 cars being sold on the first day. Within a year, 418,812 Mustangs were sitting in driveways throughout North America.
The car created the “Pony Car” class of American muscle cars, affordable sporty cars with long hoods and short rear decks.
Buyers could choose from a number of different options including engine size, transmission type, interior upgrades, power steering, power brakes and air conditioning.
Today the car’s classic styling is still relevant and desirable and demand for good examples remains strong.
The car presented here is beautiful C Code convertible Mustang.
Finished in sparkling Candy Apple Red, this car sports a powered white convertible top with ivory pony interior and matching parade boot to cover the convertible top with when down.
The original V8 289ci (4.7L) engine is strong with great power and the car has a wonderful exhaust note.
Power is put to the road by the original C4 “Cruise-O-Matic” automatic transmission with the T Bar being surrounded by an optional centre console.
The car is fully optioned with power top, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, centre console, pony interior, hazard flasher light switch, immobilizer and central locking.
The ride is outstanding, the car sits flat on the road, handles exceptionally well and brakes with ease.
American racing wheels with near new BF Goodrich white letter tyres and red centre caps round out the package.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find quality Mustang convertibles in the USA and their values continue to rise.
