(5 photos of a 1966 Mustang Colt Hardtop Advertisement) Bob Davidson Ford in Baltimore Maryland created the 1966 Mustang Colt special edition. The 1966 Mustang Colt cost $2195. It was first advertised in the February 22nd 1966 edition of the The Baltimore Sun newspaper. It was part of their Washington's Birthday celebration sale, but continued to be advertised throughout the year. The dealership was giving away Colt-Redskin football tickets with the purchase of any new 1966 Ford in stock. The Colts were located in Baltimore in 1966. The Bob Davidson dealership was located just two blocks west of the stadium. The new 1966 Mustang Colt was Custom equipped to put the kick in your driving. I wonder if they were referring to a horse kick or a football kick? The Mustang Colt special consisted of a automatic transmission, the Colt "Special" 200 engine (200ci 6-cylinder), full console, wire wheels, chrome air cleaner, heater, defroster, full carpet, and a padded dash. From the wording, this Mustang started off as a Sprint 200 factory special which had the 200ci engine with the chrome air cleaner. We don't know if the Mustang Colt was offered in the convertible body style as well. This early ad did not talk of any special badges for the Mustang Colt. We did however talk with an existing owner who has verified a badge, Colt script letters, and that they were primarily Blue or White hardtops.
