Theres no doubt that 1966 is one of the most popular Ford Mustang model years in the history of the car. In fact, March 1966 marked the creation of the millionth Mustang.
Although the first few years were definitely good for Ford and its sporty Mustang, 1966 was the year all that hard work truly began to pay off. By 1966, most people began to associate the Ford Mustang with power and performance. It was the car to have if you needed a daily driver and it was the car to have if you needed a weekend cruiser with a sporty edge.
Advertisements became popular reminders of the Mustangs youthful spirit, such as one featuring two mature adults sitting in a new Mustang with the words, Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children. It was the car to have it you were seeking the fountain of youth. It was the car to have if you were looking to win over your neighbor or hit the road for fun and adventure.
