After Ford sold over 685,000 Mustangs between 1964 and 1965, the company made only minor changes to the 1966 model since the previous year cars were so popular. One of the most notables aspects that changed between ’65 and ’66 was the grille, with the 1966 version featuring a floating Mustang logo. This particular ’66 Mustang comes to us from a Florida-based collector.
The front bucket seats and rear bench have been reupholstered in black vinyl, just like how the car came back in 1966. The black carpeting, matching door panels, center console, and deluxe woodgrain steering wheel all appear to be in fantastic shape as well. The padded woodgrain dash is in its stock configuration, outfitted with a 140 MPH Speedometer, fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, amp gauge, and temperature gauge, along with an AM radio.
Under the hood on this C-Code Mustang is a 289 Cubic Inch V8 engine with an upgraded single 4 barrel carburetor that gives this classic Ford plenty of muscle. The 289 V8 is hooked up to a 4 speed manual transmission that makes driving this Pony super fun. With upgraded headers and dual exhaust, this 66 Mustang has a nice throaty sound.
