Ad Break: 1966 Ford Mustang Got An Upgrade Or Two

After a measly 17 months on the market, the first-generation Mustang sold a whopping 700,000 copies, and Ford made a few improvements for 1966 to the pony car that started it all.

Exterior changes included a pop-open gas filler cap, new wheel covers, a new grille behind the running Mustang emblem while interior updates consistent of a new 5-dial instrument cluster, rear seatbelts, and a stereosonic tape system.

Perhaps most interesting, at least for us, is the fact that the ‘Stang was available in hard top (coupe) and fastback forms, along with the familiar convertible variant. Would be interesting to see the current-generation Mustang in a hard-top/coupe format, wouldn’t you say?
