Ford mustang fastback (1966)
the '66 mustang had a stellar year in sales before being replaced by the all new '67 models. while the '65 fastback, had been wildly popular, they experienced a 50-percent drop in sales in the '66.
in all, only 35,000 mustang fastbacks were produced in 1966, making this model highly sought after by mustang collectors.
for 1966, the fastback featured a redesigned grille, new instrument cluster, and newly styled wheels. an automatic transmission became available for the “hi-po” v8. side scoops were absent on the gt model, making for a cleaner look, while driving lamps were offered as standard equipment. in addition, the gt featured side racing stripes which took the place of chrome rocker panels, giving the vehicle a serious performance racing look.
the gt mustang featured a special gt emblem in its place. in addition, the letters “mustang 2+2” were added to the lower front fender on the fastback. the gt also featured the hi-po 289 emblem, making it easy to spot one of these v-8 classics on the road.
