(15 photos of a 1966 Candy Apple Red Mustang Convertible) "Aunt Myrna, if you ever want to sell your Mustang, let us know." This is what Allan and Nancy Eisentraut told their aunt Myrna of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin. Myrna bought the car new in 1966, drove it for years, then stored it in her garage for 16 years, untouched. Finally, one day in 1986, Allan and Nancy, got a call from Myrna. She wanted to sell them the car. Allan went there with his mechanic son. They pulled the Mustang out of the garage with the tires sliding on the ground. They were froze up with rust. After pounding the rust off the wheels to get them to turn; then taking the spark plugs out, pouring oil into the spark plug holes; and pouring gas into the carburetor, the Mustang started up - surprisingly, even with the old battery. It was quite rusty and a body man told them not to wait too long to have it taken car of. Within a year, the car had been repainted. Everything is still original on the car, right down to the plaid carpet in the trunk. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week picture for 8-26-07.|
(3 photos of a 1966 Ivy Green Mustang GT T-5 Convertible) Ivy Green 1966 Mustang GT T-5 convertible that was once owned by Emmanuel Theux from Monte-Carlo. T-5 was the Mustang model sold in Germany, because the model name of "Mustang" could not be used because a trunk company had registered it first in Germany. Not sure how many people would confuse a Mustang truck with the Mustang car. This one has a K-code HiPo 289ci V8 engine. Emmanuel sold it to a private museum in Switzerland. Emmanuel has owned many Mustangs. Check them out by clicking here.

It was advertised locally by the owner of 30 years. It was in dry storage for several years. He kept the vehicle maintained - I have receipts for over $15,000 spent. I drove the car back from Tahoe after flushing out coolant fluids etc, and it drove flawlessly the 200 mile trip back to the East Bay. The pony interior could do with new covers. Still very presentable."
(5 photos of a 1966 Timberline Green Mustang High Country Special Convertible) Check this out! It's a Timberline Green 1966 Mustang High Country Special convertible. It's owned by Charles. It has the 289ci V8 engine and a manual transmission. The owner tells us, "I bought this car many years ago in Colorado (still has dealer emblem on trunk lid). It currently has about 26,000 original miles on it. It does come out every year for a couple church or Dairy Queen runs. I was surprised to see our car show up again on another site. If you research the 1966 HCS convertible you will notice that the same car is used on many sites as a reference model. Those pictures are about 15 years old. Other than a different set of tires and a couple thousand more miles she still looks the same. Not sure why or how everybody
uses our pictures without permission but It's kind of cool seeing it pop up every now and then. I have amassed an extensive amount of detailed info on these 1966 HCS convertibles over the years and made a small book detailing the cars. I can provide info and extensive pictures if interested. After many years of turning down some pretty interesting offers for her the time may finally be at hand to let her go. I have had numerous Mustangs over the years, my personal favorite was a 1965 fastback in Tropical Turquoise of which only 50 were built before they switched the color. While owning that rare one I stumbled upon this one still owned by the original family. When a car this rare comes along you buy it and figure out what to do with it later. I brought it home but owned too many cars so I gave it to my father. Dad is now mid 70's and not driving much anymore and this car deserves to be somewhere else. I have 2 other convertibles and like to drive my cars. This one should not become a driver. There are only a couple of the 33-35 1966 HCS convertibles left and I know they don't have 26,000 miles. I had a big name restoring company wanting to restore it to concourse condition but they are only original once and this one should stay that way I think. I would be willing to entertain offers or ideas and can provide any and all detailed info as well as any pictures one might want. I will not be disclosing the location of the car publicly but will privately allow perspective buyers to come see her."
