This week on AFTER/DRIVE, Zac and Mike join host Mike Spinelli to determine whether the new GT will be the raw, race-bred driving experience like our '66 GT40, or suffer from the driving nannies that plague so many modern supercars today.
The 1966 Ford GT40 is not like most cars. Sure, its got headlights, air conditioning, and a key, but that's not my point.
Who doesn't love having an excuse to scan Craigslist for future project car hell material? In the world of the automotive obsessed, we're going to assume the answer is no one. This weekend we are keeping it simple, we want to see what you think is the most desirable vehicle currently for sale on everyone's favorite…
In 1966 if you wanted all the space and luxury of a full size Ford with plenty of muscle, an R code Galaxie 500 was the car for you. Although a Galaxie with a 425 horsepower 427 V8 is pretty appealing 45 years later, it wasn't a very popular combination when new.
According to Ford, their better late than never competitor to the Jeep CJ-5 and the International Scout wasn't just another SUV, it was a four wheel drive sports car. Everywhere it went, the new for 1966 Bronco was blazing a trail of excitement.
Hidden deep in the overgrowth is likely where this 1966 Thunderbird will stay for some time. If they all looked like this we'd say a ‘bird in the garage is worth 20 in the bush. (Photo Credit: TheGiantVermin)
For 1966 Dodge unleashed a full advertising campaign detailing the Dodge Rebellion. Although we aren't sure exactly what Dodge was rebelling against, it involved secret meetings, Dodge Monacos and the very 60s blonde spokeswoman of the rebellion. Sign us up.
It was 46 years ago last Thursday when the world was introduced to the first tuner mustang, the 1965 Shelby GT350 (1966 pictured). The GT350 was the first Mustang produced by an aftermarket company like Shelby. (Photo Credit: aldenjewell)
After getting my Project Van Hell '66 Dodge A100 last weekend, I was a bit apprehensive about removing its rod-knockitty engine through the doors. I've done plenty of engine swaps, but never out of a mid-engined van. No problem!
I haven't yet figured out how I'll paint my latest Project Van Hell acquisition, which means I need to do some serious brainstorming. You can help!
You've got a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 you need to sell, and so you break out the camera and start shooting some photos. You need to let buyers know what they're getting, so what do you photograph?
Many of us have looked at a beat-to-hell sedan, then reached for the Sawzall and created an open-air summer cruiser. Then, when the weather turns cold/rainy, it gets junked. But if you're Belvedere Adrian, you keep driving it for decades!
