Yep, 1966 with a 289 and C-4 auto. Color is called Antique Bronze. I learned to drive in this car when it was my Dad's. It was my daily driver for about 14 years and put over 80,000 miles on it over that time.What year is it, '66?
She's as straight as an arrow!
Yup, 'cause there ain't no parts to go wrong in the first place!These old cars just keep going forever it seems if you do a few maintenance items.
Exact same story here, except mine was a '66 notchback in yellow. That six mated to the auto was a real dog. Funny I didn't turn out to be big Mustang fan because our other car was a '68 Town & Country wagon with a 440 and dual exhausts. That's the one I always wanted to drive and why I grew into a huge wagon nutFirst car I ever drove was my parents '66 Mustang covertible. Blue on blue w/ white conv. top and the measly 6 banger engine and automatic transmission.
My Dad bought it in around 1968 as his drive to work car from the local Ford dealer. I have a cool pic of him in front of it in the early 70's with some killer sideburns. :freak:Yer so lucky to have a car that's been in the family so long. Did you a complete restoration?
Stories like this make me sad that I live in the midwest. It does not matter how much you pamper it, a daily driver will not last if driven in the winter in the Midwest. It's just not possible. These Mustangs (and any other car of the same era) were rusty hogs within 10 years (rust holes often started within 3 or 4 winters).My Dad bought it in around 1968 as his drive to work car from the local Ford dealer.

My sister took it to college and had it for about 7 years then I bought it in 1988 when I graduated grad school and drove the tires off it rain, snow or shine until 2002 when I bought a modern car.
It is not restored. I call it maintained. I like it to look good and run well. I don't care though if it has red dollar a foot heater hoses or Ford date coded stuff. I had the front seats redone and gave it a decent respray in about 1990. Starting to have a little surface rust spots behind the rear wheel wells.
