I Hate To Do This!!!

Classic Mustang Convertible For Sale

I don’t want to do it, but I’ve decided to put my 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible up for sale. This is a beautiful, classic car!

I bought the car about 7 or 8 years ago. The previous owner had put a rebuilt 302 V8 in it and that engine is still running great. The car was equipped with a 289 V8 out of the factory.

When I bought it, the car had a pretty well worn black interior. I checked the codes and found that out of the factory it had an aqua interior. I completely restored the interior about 4 years ago, returning it to its original aqua. I had a radio patch professionally installed and I installed an original AM radio. The interior was also professionally painted using a beautiful aqua clearcoat. It looks fabulous! All seats were stripped down to the frames and the new foam and upholstery installed. It has a new dash pad, new carpet, new guage cluster, new rear view mirror, new sun visors, new hardware. It's gorgeous!

The car runs and drives great. It always gets compliments! There are some rust spots just forming on the rear quarters and the paint is in good condition. There are a few scratches, but it cleans up nice and shines like new.

Underneath is RUST FREE and very solid.

It is a mechanically sound car that has never failed Missouri’s safety inspection. I’ve always had it licensed and ready to drive.

The top is fairly new and is in great condition. The power top works great.

It’s equipped with power steering and power brakes and an automatic transmission.

I’ve kept it garaged and only drive it on nice, sunny days. It always starts right up and runs great.

You can see more information at I documented the interior restoration at that web page, and you can see the transformation from the worn out black interior to the beautiful, aqua interior.

I will be taking new pictures of the car and posting them here soon.

Asking $22,000.

Email me at with questions.

This wouldn't have anything to do with your mid-life crisis car would it?
