1966 Ford mustang sprint For SaleFor sale
1966 ford mustang sprint 200
first built 28th february 1966 this is a very rare sprint 200 edition, one of the first and built only 2 days before the millionth mustang.
midway through the 1966 model year ford introduced the “millionth mustang sale” featuring the “limited edition sprint 200” package. This promotion was created due to the overwhelming demand for the 289cid v8 which ford couldnt produce enough of. What ford was not running short of however, was the 200cid 6 cylinder. The mustang “sprint 200” was a ford marketing program that would avoid a production slow down. The stock 200 six was dressed up with a chrome air cleaner (some cars had a snorkel on the aircleaner, on later cars, the snorkel was deleted), a chrome radiator cap, a special sprint 200 decal, and two transmission packages were offered which were the type “a” manual transmission & the type “b” c4 automatic transmission, the following options specifically came standard with the sprint 200, center console shift, painted side accent stripes (color matched with cars interior, but not always.) deletion of the chrome rear quarter ornaments and a set of (4) deluxe chrome 48 simulated spoke blue center wire wheel covers.
all 1966 sprint 200’s must have all the options below to be considered a real “sprint 200” production car:
200 cid six cylinder engine – this is the original.
full length console (non a/c cars), short console (a/c cars) – original still in place.
full wire simulated wire wheel covers – original wheels and wires included.
chrome air cleaner (with or without snorkel) with a special sprint 200 decal.
deleted 3-prong tri-bar side cove ornaments. (all sprint 200’s must have this option!)
- these have been stuck on as genuine sprint has no mounting holes!
accent “painted” side pinstripes. – painted over during older u.s. Restoration.
chrome radiator cap on most cars, but not all. – not on this one.
four color matched seatbelts. – originals still in place.

this ca. Is the ‘b’ option car with the c4 automatic, the original centre console is in place, the original wheels and unobtainable wire covers come with the car. The ca. Is completely solid but does need some cosmetics to make perfect. Passed last mot with no advisories, not bad for 51 years old! Incidentally, this car will be mot exempt from april 2018.
this car was a special order in tahoe turquoise metallic. (door tag confirmed).
this is a drive anywhere car, not a trailer queen. Apart from going through the car mechanically and rebuilding suspension and brakes, it’s been fully and properly serviced by myself and in addition has a full hand made stainless dual exhaust system (from manifold to tips). the stripes are jus. Vinyl, so will peel off if wanted. It also has the extremely rare (for a sprint) grille mounted driving lights.
it’s also had (couple of years ago now), new headlining, new carpet, new bumpers and has been fitted with genuine period wolfrace slotmags.
u.s. Valuation on this ca. Is taken from n.a.d.a. Is as follows.
