FULLY DOCUMENTED HISTORY, 1 FAMILY OWNED, 50K MILES ON ENGINE, 289 V8, 3SPD, A/C

If you're looking for your first collector car, affordable sunny weather transportation, or just have a soft spot for vintage ponies, this 1966 Ford Mustang coupe is a great choice. It's not a show car, it's not a pedigreed car that you should buy as 'put-away' investment, it's just a super-solid, dialed-in little coupe with 289 V8 power, a period-correct presentation, a fully documented 1-family-owned history, and the same charm that's infused into every early Mustang ever built. And by all accounts, that's very much a good thing.

Back in 2010, this vintage Mustang got a fresh coat of Code Y Light Blue Metallic paint, which we feel is an excellent choice on a low-key Mustang. Infinitely more interesting than the usual white and red Mustangs out there, the light blue shade has elegance that's universally loved by all Ford fans, and it looks great covering the iconic lines of Americas' greatest pony. Rocker panel molding between the wheels and the chromed 'gills' in the quarters add both sportiness and sophistication to the juvenile coupe, while breaking up what would otherwise be a bit of a dull car. They did a good job on the top driver-quality paint by highlighting the deep shine and ... Please ask for the full description.

FULLY DOCUMENTED HISTORY, 1 FAMILY OWNED, 50K MILES ON ENGINE, 289 V8, 3SPD, A/C

If you're looking for your first collector car, affordable sunny weather transportation, or just have a soft spot for vintage ponies, this 1966 Ford Mustang coupe is a great choice. It's not a show car, it's not a pedigreed car that you should buy as 'put-away' investment, it's just a super-solid, dialed-in little coupe with 289 V8 power, a period-correct presentation, a fully documented 1-family-owned history, and the same charm that's infused into every early Mustang ever built. And by all accounts, that's very much a good thing.

Back in 2010, this vintage Mustang got a fresh coat of Code Y Light Blue Metallic paint, which we feel is an excellent choice on a low-key Mustang. Infinitely more interesting than the usual white and red Mustangs out there, the light blue shade has elegance that's universally loved by all Ford fans, and it looks great covering the iconic lines of Americas' greatest pony. Rocker panel molding between the wheels and the chromed 'gills' in the quarters add both sportiness and sophistication to the juvenile coupe, while breaking up what would otherwise be a bit of a dull car. They did a good job on the top driver-quality paint by highlighting the deep shine and minimizing any potential orange peel in the modern urethane finish, and with only a handful of minor imperfections to speak of the curb appeal is off-the-charts. Not perfect, mind you, but certainly good enough to get thumbs-up gestures in traffic but not so nice that a full parking lot scares you into going home. Panel fit is actually pretty good as well, particularly the trunk and the bumpers, which hug the body tightly (they were never aligned perfectly even when new), and thanks to the Mustang's huge popularity, much of the trim is newer so it looks very good. It's actually kind of refreshing to see an early Mustang that isn't trying to be anything other than what it is: fun V8-powered transportation.

The Mustang's interior is always a friendly, welcoming place, and this one is no different. It's got the slightly enjoyed look and feel of a set of comfortable jeans and that's perfectly OK with us. Two tone blue vinyl certainly helps with that, with new upholstery on the front buckets, matched by flanking blue door panels at the flanks and thick, insulating blue carpets on the floors. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966 and holds a complete set of gauges in a black "camera case" finished panel and the stock steering wheel really does look sporty. A JVC AM/FM/Cassette stereo head unit fits neatly in the original radio's location and powers a pair of modern speakers on the rear package shelf, so you don't have to sacrifice entertainment in your new daily-driver vintage Mustang. There's also an under-dash factory A/C unit that's been converted to modern R134a freon ahead of the center console. The center console shows light patina but is easily the best part of the cabin, not only as a 'must-have' option but also because it houses the funnest part of the car: the shifter for the 3-speed manual gearbox. Out back, the trunk shows off just how solid this Pony really is and sports reproduction mats for the floor and spare tire.

This is a real-deal C-code Mustang, which means a 289 cubic inch V8 under the hood. As a result, this Mustang is plenty peppy around town and has a great V8 sound from the twin tailpipes out back, both critical elements to Mustang ownership. A fresh long block was installed at 181,000 miles (the car now has 231,057 actual miles) and runs like a sewing machine today, with a stock Ford Blue open-element air cleaner, plus a set of original valve covers that make the engine bay look all stock, save for the chrome brace that stiffens the front end a bit. The 3-speed manual gearbox transmission is a willing partner for the V8 and never leaves you hanging for a downshift, and the 8-inch rear end has highway gears in it so cruising around town or across the country is pretty drama-free. The rolling stock was upgraded with American Racing Torque Thrust 'Old Style' wheels wrapped in 215/60/14 BFGoodrich white-letter tires, finishing off the look perfectly.

Accompanied by a log that shows any maintenance ever done, this is just an awesome little Mustang that's going to be affordable to own and operate and will always bring a smile to your face when you're behind the wheel. And really, is there more to ask from a classic car? Call today!
