Ford’s Mustang is one of those American automotive greats that almost anyone will know something about. Introduced in 1964, it’s been going strong ever since and is now on the sixth generation. The early Mustangs have cemented their place as desirable classics, and this 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible 289ci is firmly in the classic category, especially when it comes in overall great condition as we can see on this example. It’s got only 56,736 miles on its wheels, and comes from Kansas. Here’s a great ticket towards classic Mustang ownership. The car has had some work completed towards the end of 2020, and some receipts are available. This is the ideal car in which to cruise down the boulevard on a sunny day, top down, with The Eagles singing ‘Take It Easy’ on the sound system.
The first-generation Ford Mustang is what kicked off the whole ‘Pony Car’ segment, and this 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible 289ci proudly shows off its iconic design cues, some of which can still be seen in the current sixth generation Mustang. It wears a gorgeous Candy Apple Red paintwork that gleams in the sunlight, complemented by the steel GT-style rims wrapped in white-striped tires and red center caps. White stripes down the doors add further visual drama, and the chrome bits including the twin exhausts gleam like they just came from the factory. The white convertible top completes this package. The interior has also been reupholstered in red and white and seats four. The original gauges are present in the wood-trimmed dash, and the radio has been upgraded to a period-look unit that adds Bluetooth connectivity and plays through new front speakers. The driver grips a wood-rimmed chrome-spoked steering wheel with the Mustang logo on the center cap.
The first-generation Mustang was offered with a variety of powerplants and as the title suggests, this 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible 289ci comes with the 289ci (4.7L) carbureted Windsor V8 that puts out around 210hp to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission. The car has had recently installed power disc brakes at the front whilst the rear retains its drum brakes. It’s also received recently installed factory power steering.
