West Coast Classics are proud to present a great daily driving and striking example of this 1966 Ford Mustang 'C' code 289 V8 Convertible with original 3 speed manual transmission in original 'Wimbledon White' factory color paint with a very striking reupholstered original 'Dark Red with Red trim' vinyl trim interior and a new 'White' power soft top and with the desirable 289 V8 engine.
Ford's biggest success of the sixties and the originator of the 'Pony car' concept was essentially a sporty compact car but with a now legendary long hood and short deck proportions, built on Falcon and Fairlane chassis and drive-train components, the Ford Mustang was introduced in April 1964 as '65 models and within a year became the fastest selling car of all time; with these early production cars now carrying special favor! The upgraded V8 from the Falcon six cylinder engine was the 260 c.i. V8 produced on the same assembly line with other 1964 Fords, the early models were titled as 1965 models although they were actually from the 1964 production era. After September 1964 the 260 V8 was dropped in favor of the larger 289 V8 like this particular car.
This particular example boasts its original 'Wimbledon White' factory color paint and 'Dark Red' interior and was built with the 3 speed manual transmission and a 2.80:1 axle.
The car drives very well with no known mechanical issues. It has a new clutch, all new seals, & battery. The engine is extremely strong and responsive and the 3 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
In summary this is one very striking rare 1966 Ford Mustang 289 V8 Convertible and a great daily driver for any American classic car lover. A beautiful example of this increasingly collectible and one of the most desirable classic Mustangs ever in turn-key ready daily driving, daily head-turning, and daily appreciating condition!
