The 1966 Ford Mustang introduced minor detail changes to the original ’65 models including a simplified front grill.
Below the bonnet / hood there were not many changes except the availability of the Cruise O Matic three speed transmissions on the V8 models.
Chrome trim was also added to the faux intakes ahead of the rear wheels. Slightly different wheel trims were standard but this ’66 car seen at an Avenue Drivers Club meeting in Bristol appears to be fitted with out of period wheel trims.
In the cabin the original Falcon derived interior instrumentation disappeared with a five dial cluster as standard and two in car entertainment options were offered AM/8 Track Stereo or AM/FM Mono radio.
Rear seat belts also became standard in ’66.
This particular was imported in 2008 and is showing signs of not having been kept in a garage since.
The ’66 Mustangs were aimed at both the single girl on a secretaries salary and the man in his 50’s looking to add a little spring to his step.
