Everyone can agree that an early Mustang convertible is about as good as open-air motoring gets, and this 1966 Ford Mustang convertible remains a high-quality cruiser that is instantly recognizable everywhere you go. With the looks of a GT350, a powerful 302 cubic inch V8 and a 5-speed, it's fast on its feet and carries a host of upgrades that make it every bit as fast as it looks.
Ford didn't make many changes to the Mustang for 1966; after all, why mess with success? It was already the fastest-selling car in history, with over a million units sold, and Mustang fever was still in high gear by the time the new model year rolled around. The only way to make it better? Add a little Carroll Shelby. It turns out that the convertible makes a great-looking GT350, with this one wearing those familiar white stripes, a domed hood from a late-model Eleanor, a chin spoiler, and quarter panel scoops just behind the doors. The bright red paint was done a few years ago, with a few chips here and there to prove that it's been driven and enjoyed and a professional buff would really wake it up again. Gaps and alignment are up to factory standards, and while it never carried a lot of ornamentation, the clean, unadorned look of this car works rather well. Out back, it's got a Shelby gas cap and exhaust outlets in the rear valence, GT-style.
Inside, this pony sports an attractive red and white Pony interior, which looks great against bright red paint. Aside from the slightly thicker wood-rimmed steering wheel, it looks quite stock overall and it remains in great shape. Door panels and the dash are in good condition, and the carpets are so nice that they have to be recent, and even the dash pad looks like it's fairly fresh. There's no console, adding to the Shelby-style industrial look, but that original-looking 5-speed shifter sure looks and feels great just sticking out of the transmission tunnel all by itself. The GT-style gauges appear to be original and they work rather well in the bright interior, and they're augmented by a touch-screen entertainment system with a set of subwoofers in the trunk. Overhead, a white convertible top seals it up and folds nicely into its well without a lot of wrestling.
Thanks to the similarities of the Windsor family of V8s, the torquey 302 cubic inch V8 fits easily under the hood and moves the lightweight Mustang very enthusiastically. The engine bay is tidy and very well detailed, so you shouldn't be afraid to open the hood at shows. Horsepower upgrades are many: an Edelbrock carburetor and polished intake manifold, MSD ignition, a substantial camshaft, and a big aluminum radiator up front. These engines are extremely reliable, parts are readily available, and performance is very good, making it a blast to drive. The Mustang-source T5 5-speed manual transmission racks through the gears as the burly small block bellows through long-tube headers and a Flowmaster exhaust system, and it handles great thanks to upgraded sway bars and urethane bushings. Front disc brakes, upgraded power steering, and an 8-inch rear end round out the list of hardware. For the ideal period look, this car also wears a set of polished Centerline wheels and staggered 215/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear performance radials.
With V8 power and a folding top, this Mustang is near the top of the desirability list, and it is in ideal condition for someone who likes to drive his cars. When you're behind the wheel of an early Mustang, the world is a much happier place. Call today!
