GORGEOUS CONVERTIBLE, BEAUTIFUL PAINT & INTERIOR, 289 V8, AUTO, WELL MAINTAINED
When they say "Red-blooded American classic," this is the car they mean. After all, it doesn't get much more American than a V8-powered 1966 Ford Mustang convertible that's looking so rosy inside and out.
This is one of the best icons going – a red first-generation Mustang. And while this will always be an in-demand car, there's also extra pride in owning one that was born this way. The Candy Apple Red looks particularly nice because someone made an investment of updating the color. The result is a strong luster every time the daylight touches the super-straight body – which is exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. And you can tell someone went the extra mile just by the way the panels line up and the doors can be shut with authority. Plus, all the iconic brightwork elements are in place, such as the correct grille with the running pony emblem, 289 badges on the fenders, three-element taillights, and the mirror-like bumpers. And this one even has a finishing touch of original-spec sophistication with factory wheel coves with spinners.
With the touch of a button, the white folding roof powers down to reveal a nice red interior. This was switched from black later in life, and so the full presentation has a deep red feeling. It also really feels like an impressive time capsule. From the cut of the carpeting, to the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes, you know exactly what it feels like to cruise in 1966. And while you know plenty of family and friends will want to share this experience, the grippy steering wheel combines with the bucket seat and sporty gauge arrangement to remind you that this Mustang is really all about the driver.
Under the hood is Ford's legendary 289 cubic-inch motor. This has one of the best presentations for looking factory-correct, right down to the sticker on the oil fill cap and the stamping on the big blue engine block. It has the kind of good power that helped make the Mustang a legend. This one has a nice exhaust that has just the right note to remind you there's a V8 under the hood without waking the neighbors every time you take this out on a warm summer night. And when you look at the undercarriage photos, you see more evidence of a clean and solid car with the right investments in correct components. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission furthers this easy-driving attitude.
This is a solid droptop, and we have the maintenance records to prove it. The owner's manual comes with the sale, too. So you're looking at an instantly attractive icon that strives to be the period-correct machine you can drive on a whim. But the only way to fulfill that fantasy tomorrow is if you call today!
