Richard 1966 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Convertible

From 9th grade drafting to my garage

I had a drafting class in 9th grade I was 14,I saw a mustang in an old Popular Mechanics and decided to draw a 1966 red convertible. Years later when I was 20 years old I was at my friends house playing frisbee. The frisbee went over the fence and the cover blew off the car and guess what was under it a 1966 convertible Red with a white top, and red interior. The owner came out and said she was selling it for $5,000.

I offered her what I had in my wallet which was my tax refund of $ 2,500 and she said ok! I got in the car and there was less than 15,000 miles on it! She was driving it home to Southern CA, when a piece of rebar went through the radiator. After that the car sat in her back yard on blocks 1968 to 1980 when I bought it! I am now 54 and still love that car!
