The 1965 model year Mustang sales began in April, 1964. The wildly popular Mustang carried forth into the 1965 model year with minor changes and continuing to set sales records. For the 1966 model year the Mustang was mildly tweaked but essentially unchanged from the 1965 version. Ford was selling as many as they could build and there was no reason to tamper with success. The coming wave of competing ponycars were in development but not out yet. Mustang would adapt to the new ponycars with a wider body designed to carry bigger engines but for 1966 as the only game in town Ford didn't need to change a thing.

This 1966 ONE OWNER Wimbledon White 1966 Ford Mustang convertible appeared for sale on HEMMINGS.COM in fall of 2014.

The owner states that the Mustang is mostly original and has always been garaged and only driven in fair weather. Mileage is 194,370 miles.

Despite closing in on 200,000 miles the drive train is still good. The owner states that the Mustang needs minor body work, paint, and upholstery. In the photos the owner showed closeups of the lower rocker panels which have some rust out, a small amount of rust behind the front bumper and a bit of damage to the top of the driver's door leading edge above the door handle.
