1966 FORD MUSTANG – A Classic American Muscle Car Donation

Wouldn’t this car look great in your driveway? Or top down coasting the highway with you at the wheel? It’s possible. This classic 1966 blue convertible Ford Mustang is up for sale with proceeds benefiting Maine Public Radio (NPR).

A classic American muscle car – it was in the mid 60s the Mustang became associated with true power and performance. This particular car was one of 607,568 ever made. Assembled in Dearborn, Michigan, it had only three previous owners, spending the majority of its life in Florida, then carefully garaged for winters in Maine. The interior and exterior have been restored and engine was rebuilt 10 years ago.

Ford introduced few changes to the ’66 model but what was new included wheels, grille patterns, a new instrument cluster, and color choices. This beauty is Shearwater Blue…a striking combination of light green and light blue.

It’s been said that 1966 is one of the most popular Ford Mustang model years in the history of the car. So whether it’s your first mustang or you’re revisiting an old friend…the chance to make it yours is within reach…and to help a good cause.
