I came across some Production Numbers in one of my newer books today. These are not the general numbers that I have always seen, but go as far as how many luxury and bench seat cars where built. So I thought I would share these numbers for all of our '65 & '66 Mustang owners.

1965 Early (1964 1/2)
Coupe 95,705
Convertible 28,833
Total 127,538

1965
Fastback 71,303
Fastback, Luxury 5,776
Coupe 372,123
Coupe, Luxury 22,232
Coupe, Bench Seat 14,905
Convertible 65,663
Convertible, Luxury 5,338
Convertible, Bench Seat 2,111
Total 559,451

1966
Fastback 27,809
Fastback, Luxury 7,889
Coupe 422,416
Coupe, Luxury 55,938
Coupe, Bench Seat 21,397
Convertible 56,409
Convertible, Luxury 12,520
Convertible, Bench Seat 3,190
Total 607,568

I can not tell if Shelbies are included in these numbers or not. I can verify that the total production numbers do match up with other sources. Interesting. Enjoy.

Mr. Gibson,
Would you care to tell us what constitutes a "Luxury" 65-66. I didn't know they made such a thing

LOL Mike. I'm going by the "Book", actually.
The "Book" is using the Body Style Codes, (IE 63A, 63B, 65A, 65B, 65C, 76A, 76B, & 76C). Could this mean, the Deluxe Interior and appointments?

They sure did. That's what the Pony interior{luxury decor option] was. I just went out and looked at the data plate on my car. 76 B is Pony Interior 76 A is standard interior {cv} and so on. The rarest one is the 66 Pony Int. fastback. In the data decoder book, it is refered to as Luxury bucket seats because Pony Interior was not available from the fact. with bench seat. I remember a big row at Cypress Gardens show when a guy tried to claim that his pony interior bench seat was fact.

Interesting: The data books, etc call the Pony Interior Luxury, but I just got out my 66 Brochure and the Pony Interior is referred to as "Interior Decor Group" Sorry for the above error. Not that it's that important but......maybe they're both right. LOL!
