Let's see those Rotunda accessories ! ! !
I have been working on my '66 since I was 16 and over the last 27 years have installed a lot of genuine Ford and Rotunda parts to option it up, make it more fun and unique.
1966 had the longest option list ever at Ford and the Mustang was "the car designed to be designed by you" and I've tried to keep it tasteful without going too cheesey... so here's my car and what I've done so far.
•1966 Mustang hardtop •Tahoe Turquoise metallic •Turquoise / Aqua standard interior •289 V8 •4100-4V •C4 auto •HD cooling with 7-blade clutch fan and shroud •Kelsey-Hayes front disc brakes •Dealer style dual exhaust •Five 14-inch Styled Steel Wheels •Tinted Carlite glass and banded windshield •Low profile Rally Pac •2-speed wipers and washer •Accessory glass washer fluid bottle •Day / Nite rearview mirror •Remote driver mirror and passenger companion mirror •Dual sunvisor unframed vanity mirrors •Full console •Locking glove box and key •Deluxe seat belts with front retractors and warning lamp •Rear seat belt roller retractors •Parking brake warning lamp •Headlamps on warning buzzer • Throttle control •AM/FM radio •Studiosonic reverb with rear center speaker •Rear window defogger •Ash tray lamp •12 volt dash map light •Jr tissue dispenser •Compass •Litter basket •Rear arm rests with ash trays •Remote trunk release •Underhood and trunk lid lamps •Retractable trouble lamp •Original owner's manual, jack and lug wrench •Safe Driver packet •1966 Accessory Guide •Some dealer promo stuff including a key chain pen knife and a book of matches with the "Eye the '66 Fords" logo. I have a clothes rod that supposedly came from a Ford dealer, but it isn't exactly like the Rotunda ones I've seen on the web, probably a substitute.
I haven't yet acquired all the correct parts to install Fog Lamps, I have not bolted on my Ford Power Steering because I have enjoyed the clean simplicity of manual steering and the feel of the road, and I don't really want the expense and complexity of correct Factory AC and to lose my Aqua console that I definitely won't cut. I didn't want to add Deluxe Interior because it isn't on the build sheet, door or buck tags, that was something not likely to be done by an early owner and I didn't want to cut my doors for courtesy lamps. I like the camera case black. I use reproduction rubber floor mats with the Mustang logo to keep my carpet clean and dry, and keep it as "Ford" as possible. I'm always looking for good original or NOS parts for my car or for the one I've bought as a project for my son, so feel free to PM me with your Ford and Rotunda goodies, they might be in my budget, haha ! !
Let's see what you guys have collected and done ! !
