Between 1964 and 1970, the Ford Motor Company built literally millions of Mustangs that are today worth exponentially more than their original MSRPs. Natural attrition via neglect, accidents, and simple mechanical failures sent many of those now-classic Mustangs to the scrap yard long ago. However, there are still some Mustangs out there that have warded off parts vultures and time itself, before making their way back to the market.
Today’s eBay find is just such a Mustang, a 1966 model that is mostly complete but still presents a fair number of questions to potential buyers. Chief among them, why has this car been in storage since 2002?
The one-paragraph description of this dust-covered blue Mustang does little in the way of providing answers, noting only that the car doesn’t run, the true mileage is unknown and it has been in storage for the past 14 years. It does, however, come with the original title, was well as two C4 transmission, implying perhaps that transmission woes are what sidelined this ‘66 Mustang in the first place.
Or it could have been engine troubles, as the 200 cubic-inch inline-six has had its cylinder head removed, rendering it inoperable. Given that this Mustang is otherwise mostly complete however, it would make an excellent foundation as a project car. You could swap out that tired six-banger for a 289 or 302 V8 in a weekend and having a running, driving Mustang for the cost of a used Honda Civic.
If you want this Mustang you’ll have to hurry, as the auction is coming to a close soon. Don’t delay, as projects this complete rarely come along for so cheap.
