1966 Mustang GT Hardtop Coupe

Model Year History Overview:
Mustang was the greatest single automotive success of the ‘60s and raised Ford volume by well over half a million cars.
This set an all time record for the first year’s sales of any new model from 1965 through 1968. Mustang came in three basic forms: hardtop sedan, a convertible and a semi-fastback coupe. The crisp notchback hardtop like this car was unquestionably the sales leader. Part of Mustang’s appeal lay in its myriad of options.  For $ 170.00 the GT package offered an assortment of goodies, including front disc brakes, a full-grade instrument panel and special badges.  A variety of interiors were available along with accent stripes and special moldings for the exterior.
The first Mustang engines were the 170 CID Falcon six-cylinder and the 260 CDI small block V-8.  Later a 200 CID engine replaced the six and the 260 V-8 was discontinued all together 3 months after intro in favor of the more popular 289 CID V/8.
