289 Stick-Shift Convertible: 1966 Ford Mustang

Tucked away in a warehouse with other fine steeds, this ’67 Mustang convertible is a reasonably complete find. Although dusty and derelict, this drop top does not appear to be riddled with cancer. Certainly in need of work, this Mustang project is ending soon with the current bid at $2,475. Take a look at it here on eBay out of New Lebanon, Ohio.

A factory 289 V8 stick-shift car certainly made this mustang a fun ride in its hay days. There is a chain attached to the engine so I would guess that the engine was either going to be pulled, or was pulled at some point in time. There are some minor missing items in the engine bay including distributer cap, rotor, and air cleaner. There is no mention of the drive-train’s condition, but I think it is safe to say that this old horse has been resting for a while.

There is a seat or two in the cockpit, and the dash is mostly there as well. The gauge cluster is hanging, but the dash looks to be in reasonable shape. Apparently missing, the back seat and door panels are not anywhere in sight. Although the top frame is in place, the actual top itself is in pieces.

Repainted at least once in its lifetime, this Mustang was originally pale yellow as evidenced by the engine compartment. Looking closely you will find a few minor dents and dings like on the driver front fender over the wheel arch. There are a few other minor dents and dings on the remainder of the body. Rust seems minimal, but there are no photos of the floors, so it is hard to say. There is some minor rot around the driver rear wheel arch, and there also looks to be a small area on the driver rocker. Looking at the passenger side, it appears that there may be some rot on the rear wheel arch, but the rocker looks clean. Although this isn’t the perfect project for everyone, this may very well be a worthwhile project to someone. I have seen worse condition cars brought back to life. Would you invest the time and money into this 289 stick-shift convertible?

    If you take a close look at the pictures, you will see that this Pony is beyond repair…there is bondo on top of bondo, crispy rust everywhere, and the final clue should be that this apparently sitting at a Mustang restoration shop, and they may have given up on this toasty ‘stang…

    Rustang–check the floors good and most of all the dreaded inner rockers. 4 pictures?? manual trans, well is it 3 or 4 speed and is the tranny there?? Up to 3 large hasn’t hit reserve?? Look er over good if u think u want it, Don’t understand how the seller expect to sell it with such pi$$ poor info. Sorry about the negativity, but SMH. Good luck to the new owner.

    If they really want to sell it they could have put tires that hold air on the car and give it a good cleaning . With only 4 pictures I get the impression the seller is trying to hide a lot of problems this car has .
