EXCLUSIVE: 1966 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

It might be torn apart, rusty, and missing the drivetrain, but this is a real deal Mustang GT Convertible! Reader Philip D isn’t going to get around to restoring it, so he’s listed it as an Exclusive in hopes of finding a good home for it. It’s going to need a complete restoration, but if you are going to restore a car, a Mustang is always a good choice! It comes with a clean title and all the parts in his photos. You can find it in McMinnville, Oregon with a $1,950 asking price.

What Makes It Special? This is a stalled project that checks all the boxes as a REAL GT. All the GT factory modifications are there. It was a 289 V8 225 Horsepower A code with an automatic. I bought it at LaMay Family auction.

Body Condition: Body is very rusty with some replacement panels in place. It is in need of a complete redo but has the GT factory Modifications are present.

Mechanical Condition: The powertrain is missing except rear differential. Please study the photos, what you see is all you receive. NOT A COMPLETE CAR.

    you’d think that the guy would take a minute and vacuum the leaves and dirt off the floor pans do you could get a look at them, This is one rotten pony, thinking it wasn’t a Washington car or it sat on the ground. Parts there and a title. Good luck. Not for the faint of heart, seen worse brought back!!

    Emberglo. Pony interior. 289, 4-speed. Factory wheels or period correct aftermarket. No ugly ass 20 inch rims, no drivetrain modernization exercises, no electronics, just a nice, period ride that wouldn’t freak anyone out if it turned up in 1966. Springtime Yellow / black would work OK also, I suppose, but Emberglo just really does it…

      Emberglo is such a great colour !

    I think I’m confused. I had three mustangs and in the mix was a 66 GT Fastback. My car was w a 289 HiPo, solid lifters and made 271 hp. The VIN also had the designated “K” for the GT. Lastly it had the pony interior. Is the car advertised really a GT??????

    • Bobby

      66 Gt came with the K code but most had the A code 200hp 289 2 barrel autolite 4100 carb.

    I haven’t seen this many unusable parts since yesterday.

    The old term, “Beating a dead horse,” comes to mind. Or in this case, pony.

    If you’re going to claim it’s a real GT, you should probably include some supporting evidence. The only clue I see is a GT instrument cluster. Even this rolling tribute to entropy should still have a few of the more obscure identifiers left on the chassis.

    I’m torn on this one…if it is a genuine GT, someone with mad skills, lots of time, and passion, this one could and should be saved…I have two of those character flaws, and it’s not mad skills….

  8. Tiger66

    @Bobby: A-code 289 was 4-barrel, 225 horsepower, not 200. The 2-barrel 200-hp C code was not offered in the GT — had to be either the 225 hp A code or 271 hp K code.

    @CCFisher: The 5-dial instrument cluster was used on all ’66 Stangs, not GT-only like in ’65. So 5-dial cluster in ’66 does not indicate a GT.

    Really, this a decent price. So close to me too….i can afford this and I can do the work to bring it back…just no room at the moment….GLWTS!!
