You are viewing a nice, privately owned 1966 Ford Mustang GT Convertible.
You will be purchasing this vehicle directly from the current owner who has owned this vehicle since 1992.
After enjoying the vehicle for eight years, he decided to have the vehicle restored. The restoration stated in September of 2010
and was finished three years later. Since then, the vehicle has only been driven 1,467 miles.
The overall condition of the vehicle is excellent. It is very clean and detailed. It is not a 100 point trailer queen show car,
but would score well at any local ford show. During the high end restoration, great care was
taken to make sure the workmanship and quality was at a high standard.
We will try to describe and go over most of the car, please read and view all of the 92 pictures listed below.
