An Unexpected Discovery

In a literal sense, this Mustang embodies a "barn find." After being parked in the late '70s or early '80s, an entire wall was built around the convertible, enveloping it in darkness for over 40 years. Only by dismantling sections of the barn itself could the classic pony car see daylight again.

Retrieving a Time Capsule

Now with its new owner in Wyoming, the '66 Mustang convertible is like a time capsule into the past. Under the accumulated dust and rust, the body remains straight with no major damage. And despite serving as a mouse nest for decades, the original 200 cubic-inch 6-cylinder engine amazingly still holds air in the tires, potentially needing only minor work to run again.

A Renewed Future

While covered in grime, the Mustang's intact body and low 59,142 miles point to a straightforward restoration. The new owner already gutted the mouse-infested interior to replace the floor pans and components. Though the classic straight-six may get freshened up first, a more powerful V8 swap likely awaits further down the road, giving this long-forgotten 'Stang a renewed lease on life.

"Frankly, this could be the worst barn find rodent infestation we've seen. Nests are on the floors, the seats, and in the trunk."
