The second full production year of the Mustang saw its popularity continue to rise. The 60's were a tumultuous time for the United States but Ford was trying to give the general public a car to get excited about.

1966 Mustang Restoration and Repair at Wilson Auto Repair

The 1966 Mustang had the options of a Coupe, Convertible and the Fastback models with production beginning in August of 1965. It was a milestone year for the Mustang as Ford produced the 1,000,000th unit of the car. Even though the Mustang was early in its life cycle, there were some changes offered in the '66 model year.

The exterior design changes included the headlights being incorporated into the front grill design, new wheels, new color options, new rocker-panel trim, and revised side scoops.

The interior of the '66 Mustang saw an updated instrument cluster.

A significant change for driving ease was introduced, as an automatic transmission was offered for the "Hi-Po" V8. This change fit nicely with how Ford decided to market the car to the younger set with advertising copy such as, "Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children."

Of the three offerings, the Coupe was the biggest seller by far, with just under 500,000 cars sold. As a result, we at Wilson Auto Repair see many 1966 Ford Mustangs being brought in for renovation work ranging from minor repairs to full restorations. Since the 1966 Coupe was the best selling Mustang ever, we anticipate even more interest in the car as the 45th anniversary approaches in 2011.

The 1966 Mustang convertible was very popular also, with just under 70,000 units sold, while the Fastback saw a decline in sales from the previous year to only 35,000 units sold.

At Wilson Auto Repair, we are passionate about these cars because we know the owners are as well. Our nearly 25 years of experience has given us the opportunity to work on many of these great automobiles and to give their owners the pleasure of having the car just as they remembered it back in 1966.
