Nice looking Sprint, and a fair description.  Ford was running out of 289's rapidly in late 65 and early 66 so created the Sprint to coerce potential buyers into buying the 6 cylinder version because they had to get rid of some 6 cylinder engines, and this would help ease up the desire for the 289's.  Ford later caught up with the production of the 289's and that is the reason for the one year offer of the Sprint.

The supports I think you are talking about are called a monte carlo bar and an export brace. The export brace is a solid heavy peice that goes between the firewall and the shock towers. It replaces the small stamped metal ones that came stock with the car. They run about $40 and are simply a bolt in unit. I had to redrill mine to line up with the bolt holes at the firewall (the spaceing between the bolts was off not the positioning). Don't drill your car to make it fit! The monte carlo bar goes just in front of each shock tower and braces them from leaning in toward each other. On this one it is best to move the shock towers apart to get the bar in rather than cutting the bar to fit. The towers do often lean in more than they should. These bars cost like $20. Together these give a triangle support to stiffen the unibody in the front end.

I found a 1966 Mustang Sprint where I live. It is a one owner car and has been sitting outside for about 2 years. The lady bought it new for her daughter and has all the paper work. She advertised it for 5000.00. I went to look at it and interior and body was nice, origional spoke rims rusted, would turn over but wouldn't crank. automatic. I told her I would buy it but then she backed out and decided not to sell it. Its still sitting out in her driveway uncovered in the weather. Its a shame to see it continue to go down in condition.

Some people just don't have a lot of brains when it comes to classic Mustangs.  Why would you let a classic sit outside  in the weather?

I agree it is just going to get worse. And the thing about it is so far there is no body rust anywhere on the car. All chrome so far is not rusted either.All the interior is new but needs new carpet. I did feel the floorboard and the carpet was wet on driver and passenger side. No dents in body . A really nice car just going to pot. The lady seemed like a hermit that never throws anything away. Her husband died and there is a motor stand on her front porch. Sometimes I drive by the car just to see  the car.Its in Jackson MS
