Ever since its introduction, the Mustang has taken the world by storm, and with over 10 million cars sold, it's no surprise that it holds the title of the most famous sports coupe on the planet. All of that success, however, began right here, with the first-generation Mustang. We all know the story about how Lee Iacocca ordered a small and affordable car to be built and how that small and affordable car went on to become the undisputed king of the muscle car segment. This 1966 example is the genesis of Mustang, and in such an immaculate condition, we only see this one hanging around for a short time.
The design concept for the Mustang was straightforward. It was a two-door car that had to fit four people and weigh less than 2,500 pounds. Funnily enough, the concept that was supposed to produce an affordable commuter was also the perfect recipe for a sports car, and that's how the GT came to life. One might not notice immediately, but the GT has a few subtle differences, including fog lamps attached to the front grille, rocker panel stripes, and, if you looked closely, disc brakes. This beautiful red 1966 Ford Mustang GT has an older restoration reported by its current owner and is said to have its torque converter, pump bushing, and power steering cylinder rebuilt in the last 5,000 miles. Anyone who knows a first-generation Mustang knows the satisfaction of peeking through its window and seeing an abundance of plush black leather, and this 1966 Ford Mustang GT has just that. Ford made one big change to the GT's interior as well. Looking over the steering wheel, one would be able to notice a completely new dashboard inclusive of a speedometer, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, and ammeter in five round dials.
As for power, this 1966 Ford Mustang GT relies on its 289ci V8, which the owner reports was rebuilt less than 10,000 miles ago with receipts to prove its authenticity. The owner also says that this car still holds on to its original C4 automatic transmission.
