BF Auction: 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe

Sold for $20,750View Result

We love finding classic cars with a well-documented history. For most people, a car is just transportation, so keeping track of its history isn’t all that important to them. And prior to the internet, it wasn’t something that could be automated, so it’s quite impressive when you find a car with a verifiable history. This 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe is being offered with documentation that backs up the 56k miles currently showing on the odometer. It’s a C-code V8 car that had all the GT equipment added by the dealership, which makes for a fascinating combination. The seller has done a little work to it during their ownership, but they’ve decided it’s time to let someone else enjoy this pony! If that person is you, it can be found in Springfield, Massachusetts and it’s being offered exclusively here as a Barn Finds Auction!

The original owner clearly wanted their Mustang to stand out in the crowd, while still being a comfortable car to daily drive. The Antique Bronze paint color is nice and bright but isn’t garish, but the added GT equipment gives the car a bit more menacing look. Add in the Pony interior and you have a comfortable car to drive. Its original owner also decided to upgrade to power brakes with discs in the front. They also had it resprayed in its factory color during their ownership and it appears to have held up well.

The seller purchased the car a few years ago and has put about 500 miles on it. They had the driver’s seat upholstery replaced, as it had a tear in it. Other recent work included installing a Vintage Air A/C system, electronic ignition, a new 3-row radiator, a 7-blade engine fan, and a new factory cooling shroud. They also decided to have a new stereo installed with a Kenwood cassette/AM-FM head unit with new Polk 6×9 speakers. Rather than risk having issues with old wiring, it was decided to also have the under-dash and engine bay wiring harnesses replaced. It’s in good running order and everything is said to work correctly.

Ford offered a range of engines in the ’66 Mustang, from the Thriftpower inline six all the way up to the HiPo 289 V8. This example received the middle ground option, the 2-barrel 289 V8. While not as powerful as the top-level 289, this engine offers a nice balance of performance, efficiency, and driveability. With 200 horsepower and 282 foot-pounds of torque, the C-code should offer plenty of performance to be fun. Being paired with the C4 automatic and A/C means it will be a comfortable classic for casual cruises or longer trips! As you can see, the engine bay presents nicely and looks as you would expect with a low-mileage car.

Even though they built a large number of these 1st generation Mustangs, it’s getting to be quite difficult to find documented low-mileage examples. This one has some nice upgrades and the fact that the GT features were installed by the dealer makes it a bit more interesting. The seller had planned on keeping this pony long-term, but another car that’s on their bucket list has come up for sale, so they’ve decided to cut this one loose. If you’d love to be its next owner, be sure to cast your high bids! If you have any questions about the car, please leave them in the comments section below.

    The exhaust exits are my favorite on a
    Mustang. Those add great style!

    As a Stang freak, I say very very nice well kept 66 pony. Just one ? tho. Why does it have a lien on the title? Author does not address that. Just love the colors on this car!!! Great presentation all around. Same 289 C-code I had in my 65. Pretty much bulletproof.

      The seller financed the car when they purchased it and still has a lien on it. The buyer and seller will have to work out the details of paying the lien, but shouldn’t be an issue.

    Always loved the look of the early Mustangs, 65 and 66. Just curious does it come with a spare tire? My other questions was the lien title but that was answered. If I was closer so that I could inspect it I would be bidding.

        No not even a squeak ! Matter of fact I just turned it around and moved the steering wheel all the way on both sides no peep.

      I’m wondering why so much of the cooling system was changed. Did it have an overheating problem?
