Whether you are an automobile enthusiast, collector or historian, chances are you have come across the pony car that started it all, the Ford Mustang. The pony car class was created with the debut of the first-generation Mustang manufactured by Ford from 1964-1966. With its inspiring styling and powerful engine, these pony cars have been galloping on the streets since 1965. For the 1966 model year, it was significantly restyled and got performance enhancements, making it the best-selling convertible of the year. This specimen is a 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible from Wisconsin. With 78,800 miles on its clock, it is reported to have a numbers-matching motor and transmission, and the motor has been treated to a re-build.
The 1966 Ford Mustang saw moderate trim changes such as chrome side ornamentation, wheel covers, gas cap and a new grille. This Mustang convertible is finished in a sleek white coat with matching white hood, and rides on BF Goodrich Control T/A tires. Complementing the front end of the car is the iconic floating horse emblem on the grille. More Mustang emblems can be found near the front wheel arches and on the boot lid, leaving no-one in doubt about what this car is. The original blue interior of this example is in great condition and offers space for four adults to travel. The classic, thin rimmed three spoke wooden steering wheel features a Mustang emblem center cap too. The dash is equipped with five gauges and a push-button radio.
Under the hood of this example is the classic 3.3L 200cid 6-cylinder engine which is capable of producing 120hp at 4,400rpm and 190 lb-ft of torque at 2,400 rpm when stock. A three-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The motor features new fuel lines and filter whilst braking duties are handled by all-round drums.
