1966 Ford Mustang GT- Ember Go!
Ron And Donna Silva's '66 GT Hardtop Helps Them Celebrate Their own Youth Movement
Inside, Ron and Donna's Emberglo hardtop is about as elegant as it gets in a classic Mustang ride: Parchment with Emberglo appointments. Officially known as the Interior Dcor Group, the plush interior is more commonly referred to as the Pony interior due to the embossed running horses in the seat backs. A Custom Autosound cassette and six-CD sound system along with Kenwood speakers yield the good vibrations.
When we asked Ron what he loved most about the car, he said, "That Donna and I dated all through high school in a Mustang nearly identical to this one, which makes it fun to hit the road on weekends."
