Another day, another Mustang. America’s sweetheart Pony car is the darling of so many that it’s only natural to see them change hands once people have scratched their Mustang itch and want to scratch another itch. You can find a myriad of Mustangs across generations, from the concourse level ones that are literally spotless, to slightly more used but presentable examples. Let’s not get into the myriad of modified and resto-modded ones too. If you’re looking for a clean and decent example, here’s a nice 1966 Ford Mustang from Indiana with just 45,267 miles on its odo and a powerplant transplant. Drive it as-is, bring it up to concourse, or use it as the base for a Mustang resto-mod, the choice is yours.
The first-generation Mustang that ran from 1964 to 1973 is considered the most desirable of them all. This 1966 Ford Mustang is from that generation and looks distinctive in its Burgundy paint job with contrasting black vinyl-wrapped top. It rolls on a set of retro-style Weld Racing alloy wheels with Cooper Cobra tires sporting white sidewall script wrapped around them. The necessary badging is present and correct too, including the rear center badge boss that doubles as the fuel filler cap. Venture aboard and a black interior greets you. The characteristic five-dial Mustang gauge pod is complemented by some auxiliary gauges down by your right knee as you sit in those iconic Mustang seats and grip that steering wheel with the pony right in the center. The radio has seen an upgrade in the shape of a Pioneer Radio/CD player, and your eyes might be drawn to the non-standard gear lever. More on that in the next section.
In 1966, the Mustang’s largest engine was a V8 that topped out at 289ci (4.7L), but this 1966 Ford Mustang has seen an engine upgrade to a 302ci V8 with a four-barrel Edelbrock carburetor and Weiand intake, sending drive to the rear wheels via a T5 five-speed manual gearbox which is why the gear lever and surround look non-standard on the interior, as the first-generation Mustang never rocked a five-speeder. The car has also got air shocks in the rear for a more comfortable ride.
