Hemmings Find of the Day – 1966 Ford Mustang

1966 Ford Mustang Retractable - The retractable system was originally designed by Ben Smith, a Ford engineer who had successfully introduced the 1957 through 1959 Skyliner. Ford commissioned him to build one Mustang retractable. Ford decided not to proceed with the retractable program, because they were having such a big success with the other versions of the Mustang. Ben Smith later produced a kit to make retractables from coupes.
