Description

One of the classic Sixties cars was Ford's Mustang, a personal sports coupe introduced in 1964 to general acclaim and by 1966 was breaking all sales records - in fact the Mustang notched up 1,000,000 units sold that year. Ford had the sense to leave the winning formula alone for 1966, limiting changes to details such as a new floating pony emblem in the grille, three chrome spears on the simulated scoops plus new styled steel wheels. Inside new safety regulations dictated front and rear seat belts, a padded dash and electric wipers while new front bucket seats and a five-dial instrument binnacle were also big news. The Mustang could be ordered in three basic body styles - the coupe, fastback or convertible - and buyers could choose from a huge range of engine and transmission options. Those wanting a boulevard cruiser were content with the 120hp six but more performance-oriented customers invariably ordered the classic small-block 289-cid V8, itself available in three levels of tune. The Mustang is enjoying a huge resurgence of interest in Australia and fastbacks, like the car on offer here, are particularly sought after by enthusiasts.
