Junkyard barn find: 1966 Mustang convertible

A red 1966 Ford Mustang convertible sits under decades of dust in a barn at King's Auto Parts in Birmingham, Alabama. Junkyard owner Lonnie King, opened the barn door to reveal a checkered flag waving ragtop with 54,000 miles on the odometer. A Dale Earnhardt poster, keeping with the racing theme, resting under a wiper blade. King says, “the ponycar is equipped with the 170-cubic inch, inline six cylinder and is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission.”

Ford built 607,568 Mustangs in 1966. Of those, 56,409 were convertibles. This barn find Mustang is mostly complete. The front bumper and the “F” emblem on the leading edge of the hood are a couple items you might want to search for in the junkyard. 

King has owned the Mustang for many years but would consider parting with it for $11,000. If your interested call him, 205-786-3256. 

Only 54,000 miles showing on this 1966 Mustang convertible.

sucks when people think their car is that valuable. 11,000 is nuts when the amount of money that car is going to need.

for a 6 cyl 65 or 66 mustang, even though its a convertible, i have seen these same cars restored with the 289 v-8 for less than $14k. only car worth those kind of number are a fast back.. $11k is way to much for this car, $4,500 would kill it... just being realistic
