1966 mustang SPRINT COUPE
#1
Hey guys...

This is the story... A local friend of mine has a 66 sprint coupé I6 200 ci, etc.. His car is not in the greatest shape... it´s been always bad repair and so... and my friend, who has the car for 11 years now, is kind of dissapointed, telling everybody his car doesn´t have anything "great"... not even a good engine.. since everyone is fan of V8, or custom stangs etc...

This car is stock, mechanical and asthetical and well... i told him i was gonna find out something more about what he actually has...

I used to have 2 1966 hardtops, both 6 cil and i really liked the car.. even if it is "just" a classic... the car is really fun to drive... His car has some advantages than a simple I6... the interior is better and some details all over makes this car at least, rare for Uruguay....

Well.. if enybody wants to talk about it, you´re welcome!

Thanks!

Folks here much more knowledgeable than I can correct me, but I thought the Sprint edition was special trim for 1972 to honor the Munich Olympics.

Or, maybe I just haven't had enough coffee yet this morning. Haha

I think you´re right, as the matter of fact, there´s a member here who has a 1972 sprint convertible and is a recent post, he tells us a lot about that particular type of cars, however, 1966 was a different story.

I red somewhere in 1966 Ford was running out of 289 V8 engines and the solution to that matter was to encourage people to buy 6 cylinder engine cars by promoting it via the sprint coupes. They were all I6 200 ci with some extras regarding asthetics if i´m not wrong.

This post pretends to be useful for my friend but informative for all of us who want to know more about "behind the scense" stories Smile

It will be great if we can talk about all sprint 1st generation mustangs!

PD: I love rare cars! Tongue
