1966 Ford Mustang ConvertibleThis 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible has a ton of GT-style appeal with the right sporty exterior pieces, and an enhanced V8 and four-on-the-floor to back it all up. And as you dig deeper you're going to see some correct classic style and even a cold-blowing air conditioning. So yes, the Mustang droptop you've been dreaming about is up for grabs right now.
The name Vintage Burgundy for this car's factory-correct code X paint is a bit of cool foreshadowing. When this one was built, they must have known how much of an extraordinary classic it would become. So the smooth finish gives this classic an instant appeal. You have also likely picked up on all the GT exterior upgrades, including the fog light grille, GT gas cap, and trumpeted dual exhaust mounted in the rear valance. And someone spent the time and money to get this one right. The paint has a good gloss from a modern clearcoat application. And against this darker color, there's a nice contrast with the white convertible top, as well as the brightwork pieces, like the form-fitting bumpers, rocker trim, and hallmark styles steel wheels.
With the flip of a switch the roof powers down and reveals a new dimension in style. The black interior goes nicely with the deep burgundy exterior, especially on a convertible that's set up to look extra sporty. Plus, we know you've already spotted the ultra-desirable "pony" package on the seatbacks. And with a nice feeling on the carpeting and dash, this one is the kind of cars that feels good to display with the top down. It's also a great one for driving. You have nice features, like the wood-rimmed steering wheel and a stick shift coming out of the center console. Plus, cold-blowing R134a air conditioning makes for a great classic to enjoy open-top motoring even in the summertime.
Under the hood is a very cool setup. You have vintage details, like the tin tag on the air conditioner and a callout on the air topper announcing Ford's hardy 289 cubic-inch V8 underneath. But you can also see there has been some solid investments in modern upgrades. It has extra flair with the newer polished bracer bar and Ford Racing valve covers. And there's substance behind the style with performance upgrades like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. And you get full control over the upgraded power and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. As a bonus, both the V8 and its era-correct transmission are suspected to be original to the car. As you look through all the photos, you're going to find the right components looking newer, including the power brake booster and front sway bar. There's even front disk brakes and wide Firestone Firehawk tires to give you good grip.
