1966 convertible value
I have tried to find a value of my car on Hagretty but my model/serial number does not list price data. Every other model is listed (maybe I have a rare car). It is a 1966 mustang convertible with four barrel carb but, it is not a GT. Does anyone have any insight on this and how I could find more info on this car. The serial number is 6F08A247856. Thanks
Along with the vin number posted would you post the warranty plate info? It's located on the driver's side door.
6 = 1966, F=Dearborn Michigan Assembly Plant, 08=Body Code, Convertible, A=289 4V engine and the last numbers 247856 is the consecutive unit number.
If you'd post photos we can help in giving a ballpark figure. Interior, exterior, engine bay etc.
And keep in mind that "value" will be different depending upon whether you are trying to determine insurance value or resale value. The latter usually being much lower than the former.
Thanks guys for the quick response, I just bought the car a few months ago for 23,500.00. I have always wanted a 66 Mustang since I was a kid and just happened apon this one, I did very little research before I bought it. I am very happy with the car but just trying to find out as much information about it as I can. I have never had a classic car and have very little experience/none in older cars. I can not believe how much I enjoy driving this thing, it's like being a kid again. Here is the info from the door warranty label: 6F08A247856, Body 76B, Trim F3, Date 04B, Color X, DSO 62, Axle 1, <acronym title="transmission">Trans</acronym> 5. It is a burgundy color with beige interior, 4 speed, 289, 4 barrel, electric top, no power steering or brakes. I will post some pics once I figure out how. All information would be very appreciated. Cheers

My attempt to post pics
Let's look at the numbers:
76B = 2 door convertible
F3 = Parchment Vinyl with Burgundy
04B = 4th of February
X= Exterior Color = Maroon Metallic
62 = Houston, Texas
1 = 3:00.1 rear axle
5 = Trans = 4 speed manual
That should do it. Have fun....I'm in the middle of a ground up restoration on a 66 coupe. Hopefully, I'll have it on the street by April 14.
Is your car all original or a restoration? Whatever it is it sure looks nice in the photo.
I'm not sure if it is a restoration or all original, it certainly has been painted, so maybe this means its a retro? The stereo sucks but I do not see any obvious places for speakers, what are guys doing for speaker locations in convertibles?
This might be a really stupid question but does a convertible have a rear trunk lid?
A trunk lid: yes. A parcel shelf or any place for a speaker: no they do not. Where that would be for a coupe is simply a vinyl trimmed well area where the top is stowed in the down position. Even the rear seat back in a convertible is only about half as thick as the one in a coupe since there isn't any space back there.
The only place for rear speakers in a '66 convertible is in the quarter trim panels at either side of the rear seat and that is a at best marginal. I replaced my rear quarter panels to get rid of the mess made there by the prior owner. Sitting on a speaker isn't the best idea. Where is my speaker? Over the radio where God and Henry Ford intended it to be. :D Who now listens to AM radio any way?
As for your VIN: Its about 40,000 prior to our March coupe so I would guess its a February '66 car.
Mustang Monthly (Dec 12) has a value chart based on show criteria. Your car as a '66, convt, 289, 4 barrel:
#3 partially restored or an excellent original: $16,800
#2 almost perfect: $20,600
Most cars that are at the high end of pricing, sell for much less than what an owner paid to have all the work done because they paid for so much labor costs. Buyers really only want to pay for the car.
