1966 Ford Mustang

Description

The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by the Ford Motor Company from April 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the pony car. The Mustang’s styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of imitators.

It was initially introduced as a hardtop and convertible with the fastback version put on sale the following year. At the time of its introduction, the Mustang, sharing its underpinnings with the Falcon, was slotted into a compact car segment.

With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. The 1971 model saw a drastic redesign to its predecessors. After an initial surge, sales were steadily declining, as Ford began working on a new generation Mustang.

With the onset of the 1973 oil crisis, Ford was prepared, having already designed the smaller Mustang II for the 1974 model year. This new car had no common components with preceding models.

Being offered today on its 50th anniversary it is remarkable that these iconic ’66 were built in the same year England won the World Cup. This stunning example comes in a striking red with crème interior and is described as being in excellent condition throughout. One is hard-pushed to find any inconsistencies in the car and with just 21,000 miles on the clock from new, one can understand why. Stylish and smooth with a deep rumbling V8, this very reasonably priced Mustang is a safe investment for the future.
