We all love the original pony car as a true collectible. But few come with as good documentation as this 1966 Ford Mustang. It\'s a two-owner car where the mileage and V8 power are even believed to be original to this car!
The story on this coupe is that it was with its first owner for 47 years. Since then it has only been under the care of one other caretaker. So that means you have the opportunity to be only the third person to take this home in over half a century of history! It\'s this kind of known lineage that delivers a legacy you don\'t find on many other pony cars. For example, there is a long record file that supports that the odometer likely reflects the full actual mileage. It means this coupe has averaged under 1,400 miles annually, which tells you it has not spent 55+ years on the daily grind. That level of respect is why the panels are so straight and the trim is so complete. It has a terrific classic cruising attitude with the taut black vinyl top, form-hugging chrome bumpers, and Mustang wire wheel covers. And this was actually born a Wimbledon White car. The first owner changed to the cherry hue, because after all, we all want a red Mustang. Today it has the right balance of an attractive gloss with just the right amount of imperfect details that can get you talking about this car\'s narrow family tree.
The black vinyl top is also a preview of the full black interior. We like how this is clean and complete, but with just the right little touches to let people know this one is highly original. Its factory style goes right down to the details like the working AM radio, dash lights, and dome light. You even still have the equipment in place for the classic air conditioning system (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The low-back front buckets seats, floor shifter, thin grip classic steering wheel, and 1966 gauge panel just seem to make for a great classic driver\'s feeling.
The 289 cubic-inch V8 has a terrific stock and maintained appearance, so it\'s great to show off. The other reason why you\'ll be showcasing this is that its low ownership and known history make it believed to be original to the car. It has a long maintenance file, including both the fuel pump and water pump within the last few years. It makes for a V8 coupe that remains a solid cruiser. It also helps that this has nice driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.
The important paperwork file includes the original bill of sale, title documentation, owner\'s manual, and maintenance records. It all proves that this is a truly special pony for those who love a well-respected classic. Are you ready to write your chapter in this car\'s history? Call now!
