Judy R 1966 Ford Mustang 2dr Convertible

Don't Tell the Cops!

This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible was purchased September 21, 1965, in Denver, Colorado. It was the first ’66 Mustang in Denver according to Rosen Novak Ford where it was purchased. It is painted a 1965 color – Twilight Turquoise; a specialty order at the time of purchase. 1966 was the first year seat belts and emergency flashers were required in the manufacture. This car was built in San Jose, CA; there were 56,409 Mustangs built for the 1966 model year. All the windows are original, as is the upholstery and boot. The engine is a standard 289 and the odometer has turned once. The car has an automatic “Cruise O Matic” transmission, a standard wheelbase and disc brakes. Total cost was $3,600 with tax; monthly payment was $72 – one owner (me). It is great to drive – it has been driven up to 140 MPH but don’t tell the cops! All ’66 model speedometers go to 140 MPH; other standard manufactured years go to 120 MPH. I am a member of the Colorado Chassis Lassies, an All Girl Car Club and show my Mustang often.
