For consignment a show car. Fully restored to all correct and numbers matching with the pony option, this convertible is as pristine as they get. Winning many awards, it has been garage kept, and only driven to shows. It is a luxury version of the Mustang in a seldom seen color combination. A consigner stated 64,380 original miles.
Tahoe Turquoise bathes this car, with its near perfect chrome, brite work, and badging. It's all correct, straight steel, consistent gaps, and paint quality is beautiful. A white canvas convertible top, which is raised and lowered with the flick of a switch, works flawlessly. Very nice and clean wire wheels adorn all 4 corners and have the correct 7/8-inch white sidewall tires. All just peachy, actually Turquoise outside.
The Pony interior was offered for 65-66 Mustangs, officially known as the Interior Decor Group Option. It featured molded panels, pistol-grip handles, courtesy lights, walnut-grained vinyl appliqués on the dash, more chrome, optional console and embossed galloping Mustangs on all four seat back supports. We see all these in here and they are all just as nicely kept as the exterior. Seats are a two-tone turquoise and white, and white floor mats, very clean, cover turquoise carpet, which looks showroom. Power steering, and power brakes, and original A/C hangs from the bottom of the dash and blows cold.
A pop of the hood, and we are met with the original, restored 289ci-2V V8. This nicely painted in blue engine and valve covers with correct blue air cleaner, which covers a 2-barrel carburetor. Sitting in the back of this dapper mill is a C4 3-speed automatic transmission.
Amazingly everything underneath looks like new! No rust, some repairs done, but it is very clean and structurally sound. Even the door bottoms are rust free. We note a Ford 8” rear with 2.80 gears, and drum brakes all around.
A stunning example, fully restored, original mile convertible that is truly a show winner. Meticulously restored, and only driven recently to shows, this is a turnkey car that you can drive off the Classic Auto Mall lot and pull right into a show!
