It's there but it looks like a smudge in the picture. He should have taken a closer picture. There is a picture of the hood ornament in the "Mustang Does It" book. It was a running horse, almost positive. IMHO, it's not a very good option, especially when you have to drill two holes in your hood to mount it.
Yes... 65-66 mustangs had a hood ornament option. It was a dealer option. It is a long running horse the goes on the cneter of the hood in the front. Rare yes, tackey yes, who wants one? ME.. i have been searching for one of these ornaments forever. No one seems to have an unused one. I did see one on ebay a few months back. But it was a riduculous price. But to answer all your Q's yes, there was a 65-66 hood ornament.
There are more than one style too. There's the running horse like on the grill and one raring on it's hind legs. I think there's another one but I can't remember what it looked like. The running horse could be the only style originally offered by the dealer and the others offered aftermarket, I'm not 100% sure. I too have seen them on ebay but I haven't seen one in a while.
Since I'm and old fart I actually drove a 55 Buick Special as my first car. That sucker had a gunsight on the hood. It was about four concentric circles of chrome with a big "V" inside them. Great for lining up pedestrians. Now THATS a hood ornament!
I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.
