BUCK TAG SHOWS ORIGINAL GT OPTION, SPRINGTIME YELLOW, POWER STEERING, 289 AUTO
Early Mustangs like this 1966 GT convertible are rock-solid places to park some money. Their values have been stable for years and while that's going on, you have one of the most beloved cars of all time in your garage. This convertible features all the important stuff, ranging from an A-code 289, automatic transmission, and power steering, making it a terrific summer cruiser that will make you smile every time you drive it.
If you're going to have a Mustang convertible, it may as well be a high-visibility GT, right? This one is a real-deal GT and has all the proper hardware to back it up. Repainted a few years ago, the very pretty Springtime Yellow finish is holding up superbly. Sure, it shows a few signs of use because nobody can resist the siren song of a V8 pony car in the garage, but this is the kind of car that makes men and women, young and old look appreciatively as it drives by. You'll park it in parking lots and walk away backwards to admire it as you go. Fit and finish are good with doors that don't sag and decent gaps all around that closely approximate how the factory did it. It shines up nicely so you'll enjoy waxing it almost as much as driving it, and with black GT stripes running along the rockers, everyone will know this isn't a garden-variety pony. Other GT features include the twin fog lamps in the grille area, shiny chrome exhaust trumpets poking through the rear valence, and, of course, the GT gas cap, all of which give it a slightly more aggressive look than your standard Mustang.
The Parchment Pony interior was obviously restored not too long ago and you'll find it's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, like seeing an old friend. The handsome color combination is a nice complement to the Springtime Yellow finish, an elegant two-tone look that makes the Mustang feel more expensive than it is. The only noteworthy upgrade is an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash that expands your entertainment options beyond the original AM setup. The original gauges show very good faces and clear lenses, all set into proper woodgrained panels that were part of the Deluxe interior. Overhead, there's a recent black power convertible top that uses a black boot, which is a nice choice with the yellow paint and Parchment interior. In addition, the trunk wears correct plaid mats and a full-sized spare with cover.
This is a real A-code car and carries what we believe is the original 289 cubic inch V8. It's still wearing proper Ford Blue paint, a chrome air cleaner with decal, and a set of matching valve covers, all of which are period pieces that still look great. This A-code V8 offers a 4-barrel carburetor and 225 horsepower, making this a sweet-running pony that can still slice through traffic with the best of them. It also offers power steering, a nice option on any early Mustang, as well as front disc brakes that were part of the GT package. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts cleanly and powers an 8-inch rear with 3.00 gears inside. There's also a recent gas tank and a great-sounding dual exhaust system with the aforementioned trumpets out back. Classic styled steel wheels with 195/75/14 whitewall radials complete the classic Mustang look.
A wonderful vintage ragtop that is still as in-demand today as it was 50 years ago. Smart upgrades also make this a car you can drive every day. Call now!
