1966 Ford Mustang Additional Info:

Like a lot of affordable collector cars, he early Mustangs are seeing consistent upticks in their values year after year, aking this 1966 Ford Mustang convertible a smart buy today: it simply won't be this affordable forever. It's also nicely finished with an easy-to-own six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission, aking it one of the smartest collectable icons you can own.Bright red Mustangs are a staple of the old car community, ut nobody ever seems to get tired of them. This looks like a good approximation of Signal Flare Red, ut whatever it's called, t looks great on the handsome convertible bodywork. Clearly a lot more than the asking price was pumped into the project and they seem to have started with a decent car, o it was relatively easy to make it look so good. It's not perfect, ut if you want a Mustang to drive, his one has the right look and a no-worries attitude that doesn't mind a little rain. Fortunately, t hasn't been covered in stripes or fake badges and keeps its honest entry-level look that was probably a lot more common in the late-60s than it is today. The chrome and other bright pieces are in good shape, nd you will likely discover like all Mustang owners eventually do, hat everyone is your friend when you drive a vintage Mustang no matter what's living under the hood.The bright red interior is quite nicely turned out, ith relatively recent seat covers on the low-back buckets that duplicate the originals in pattern and materials. The three-spoke steering wheel is standard Mustang-issue and looks sporty with a leather wrapper, hile the instrument panel offers a complete array of GT-spec gauges that became standard equipment in 1966. The carpets are a little faded but that doesn't diminish the appeal of the Mustang's interior, nd yes, here's a console running down the middle, nice addition to any Mustang's interior. An AM/FM/cassette radio lives in the dash, ut no cutting was required for the installation, nd there's a modern cup holder setup to make it a bit more practical. It includes a white convertible top that's in good condition, s well as a matching red boot to keep it clean-looking with the top down. Pop the trunk and you'll find a reproduction trunk mat and a full-sized spare tire with a matching cover.The engine is a nice-running 200 cubic inch inline-six, hich really was the heart of the Mustang lineup for the early years. All the signs point to this being the Mustang's original engine and it's nice to see that it hasn't been "upgraded" to a V8, ecause the Sprint 200 is a fun engine in its own right. A " Ford" valve cover and a silver air cleaner add some zip to the under-hood area, nd all the major components are in excellent shape and ready to enjoy. It still exhales into a single exhaust system with transverse muffler, nd the undercarriage is in good shape with plenty of evidence of a good life in a car-friendly climate, lthough it's mostly original. The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts nicely and with highway gears out back, t has plenty of punch around town but cruises happily at modern highway speeds. 14-inch steel wheels with classic wire wheel covers wear recent 195/75/14 whitewall radials.The Mustang still represents a lot of affordable fun, o if you're looking for and affordable yet popular way into the hobby, his handsome little convertible is an excellent choice.
