(7 photos of a 1966 Anniversary Gold Mustang Anniversary Hardtop) Super rare 1,000,000th Anniversary Edition 1966 Mustang hardtop owned by Paul Axiaq from Millbrae, California. It still has it's original 289ci V8 engine. Paul tells us more, "You've heard about the 1966 Gold Edition Millionth Anniversary Mustangs that were built to commemorate the one-millionth-sales success in 1966. Well they only made about 50 of them so maybe not. They made about 50 of these and there are only 5 known to exist today!
In 1966, about 50 special ordered Anniversary Gold Mustangs were built as part of the Millionth Mustang Anniversary, special order number 1111 and sent to dealerships across the nation. Of the few that have been found, the common features include that they are all hardtops and have C-code 289ci 2-barrel V8 engine, pony interior, steel styled wheels, and special Anniversary Gold paint. There was no paint code for this particular vehicle and they were all made on March 29, 1966.
This car was in two magazines: The June 2009 issue of Cars & Parts, and the July 2009 issue of Mustang Monthly. The original owner says this car was the first unit produced, and that it had been on promotional display as Metke Ford in Bellevue Washington. 'Treasure Chest' keys were mailed to area residents - inside the dealership's chest were keys to the Gold Mustang. The owner's father-in-law stopped by the Ford place while his wife went shopping for a dress: the car was his. The whole story was told in the Seattle Times and Seattle Post Intelligencer. It has been in storage since 1985 by the original owner.
I purchased the car in June of 2009. The car is now stored in my garage where it has been since I purchased it. I have a copy of the original owner's title in Washington. It has a documented 53,987 original miles."

(10 photos of a 1975 Medium Chestnut Orange Mustang Anniversary Coupe) Raise your hand if you've ever seen (or heard of) this one. It's a 1975 Mustang II 50th Anniversary Mexican built coupe. It was built at the Ford assembly plant in Mexico and commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Mexican built Ford cars. They have a dash plaque that says '1925-1975 Modelo Aniversario' then a ID number of 171. This car has had a repaint and the seats and headliner were redone. The hood scoop may be added. Looking around the net, Ford Mexico offered a similar Anniversary edition on each of their models. I found an LTD with the same exterior/interior colors and dash plaque.

Handling the teeth jarring shifts is a Performance automatic with hardened shafts plus a Trans brake. Coupling the power is a Continental 4,500 rpm stall. This is all held in place with front and mid engine plates. The full channel frame keeps things from twisting to the 4-link narrowed 9 inch coil over rear end. Tube K-member, steering, and front coil overs keep her light on the front end. When it comes to stopping, disc all the way around by Strange Bros. To keep me safe, a 10-point chrome molly cage is in place. Aero motive A1000 and a Holly Blue supply the GO juice."
