What Is the Silver Mink Mustang?

The Ford Mustang continued its meteoric rise in 1966, as U.S. sales reached 607,568, still the highest number of Mustangs sold in any single model year. A key milestone also occurred during this year, as total Mustang sales reached the one million mark. To commemorate the occasion, Ford released a special-edition Mustang known as the Silver Mink Mustang.

Silver Mink MustangOnly Available in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia

Many limited edition Mustangs of the era were sold on a regional basis, and the Silver Mink Mustang was no exception. It was only made available to dealers in the Ohio-Pennsylvania-West Virginia tri-state region, and according to newspaper advertisements from the time, there were “very few allotted.”

The vehicle was named for its exterior paint scheme known as Thunderbird Silver Mink, a silvery metallic color accented by a touch of blue that was first used on Ford Thunderbird models in 1962. Ads also indicated the vehicle featured a black vinyl top, which some Mustang historians believe was actually a Sprint hardtop with special order paint.
