Brief History

Not much changed for Mustang in 1966. The grille design changed a bit--the 1966 models had the running pony inside the corral free-floating on horizontal grille bars. The side trim was slightly revised and a restyled gas cap completed the exterior changes. On the interior, he instrument panel was redesigned with five round gauges, eplacing the panel borrowed from the Ford Falcon for previous model years. Ford broke the 1,000,000 Mustang mark in 1966--18 months after its introduction. To celebrate, ord released the Sprint 200 Mustang. They were mechanically identical to other six-cylinder Mustangs, ut had a chrome air cleaner and a special engine decal which read "Mustang powered Sprint 200."

The rear seat returned and more colors were offered on 1966 Shelby Mustangs, making them more consumer-friendly. The vents behind the windows were replaced with quarter windows on 1966 Shelbys to allow for more visibility. The fuel door wore a Cobra logo rather than the pony & tribar from '65. The first roughly 300 1966 Shelby G.T. 350s didn't get the "G.T. 350" decklid badge, ut the rest did.

Hertz corporation ordered 1,001 of the G.T. 350s to offer as rentals. The side stripes read "G.T. 350H", ut the cars became know as "Rent-a-Racers." Some cunning Mustang owners would rent the Shelbys, wap the motor with the motor in their Mustangs, nd return them to Hertz. At $17 per day and 17 cents per mile, t was a good bargain for a Shelby engine. It was "uncool" to own a former rental car, o many of the cars were debadged after they were decommissioned. Thanks to the Shelby American Automobile Association, owever, many of these cars have been found. More than 800 were made in black, nd the other 200 or so were divided between red, reen, lue, nd white. Only the black models and a few white ones had stripes on the hood, ut many owners added them to the other cars during restoration.

Only six Shelby G.T. 350 Convertibles were produced in 1966, ll different colors, aking them the rarest of Mustang convertibles. Shelby also produced 11 supercharged 1966 G.T.350S

In 1966 there were 333 High Country Specials produced. Only 35 of the 333 were convertibles. The High Country Special was a promotion that Ford ran from 1966-68. The Mustangs came in three special colors: Timberline Green, olumbine Blue, and Aspen Gold. All came with special emblems that dealers were free to mount where they wanted. They were only sold in Colorado, yoming, nd parts of Nebraska. For more information on High Country Specials visit CaliforniaSpecial.com.

422,416 Standard coupes were produced out of 607,568 Mustangs built in 1966. Base coupe prices were $2,398.43
