RARE CODE 76C BENCH SEAT CONVERTIBLE, ORIGINAL RED CAR, 289CI V8, SUMMER READY!
If you're a collector or the lover of individuality, this is the time to pay attention. This 1966 Ford Mustang convertible is a code-76C bench seat car. So more than just being restored in the factory-correct colors, you're looking at the rarest version of the '66 Mustang by a wide margin.
If you're going to have a Mustang, it's hard to beat Candy Apple Red. The paint and bodywork were restored to quite nice standards. That's why the gaps and alignment are up to factory criteria, and this icon has a great luster when you take in out in the sunshine. The newer black roof looks smart when in place, and it coordinates nicely with the darker elements like the updated grille and the accents on the factory wheel covers. Add in complete trim and mirror-like chrome bumpers, and you have a true all-American cruiser.
The first thing that welcomes you when you open the door are the plush red crinkle vinyl bucket seats. Not only does the red-on-red appearance look fantastic with the top down, but also we know you love that front bench seat. Sure, it has been updated (cup holders and storage were not a factory package in 1966,) but you'll love reminding everyone that less than 3,200 code-76C bench seat convertibles were made this year. Oh yeah, it's a rare treat considering Ford produced more than double the amount of expensive luxury fastbacks in '66! And more than just rarity, you'll love how this updated interior includes the desirable "Pony" package that adds prancing horses embedded into the seats. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966, which offers a sportier look and holds a complete set of readouts. And we know how much you'll love grabbing the factory three-spoke steering wheel, putting the chrome shifter into drive, and taking this Mustang out for an all-day droptop cruise.
Under the hood there's been a recent transplant to Ford's iconic 289 V8. Complete with Holley four-barrel carburetor, you get great performance and terrific firing power that comes from a solid investment in an updated V8. But you can tell people anything you want, because when you lift the hood, it looks nice and original. A coat of Ford blue paint on the block, matching "Powered by Ford" valve covers, and a shining air cleaner that includes the 289 decal – it all looks like it belonged since day one. The V8 moves the lightweight Mustang enthusiastically through any traffic, making it a joy to drive. And despite the period-correct styled steel wheels, they are riding modern 185/70/R14 Bridgestone tires for maximum comfort.
You already know that first-generation Mustang convertibles are always in demand. But when you have an opportunity of the rarest one around, you know this is a deal that you'll regret missing. Call today!!!
