Re: Instrument gauge panels

I bought a 66 but the instrument panel looks like it belongs in a 65. Just wondering if one of the previous owners may have changed it out.

Re: Instrument gauge panels

its possible. Does it work? If your really interested in finding out. You can look at the back of it for the ford numbers. For 65 it will say C5Z.... for the 66 it will say C6Z....

Re: Instrument gauge panels

No prob. Almost all ford parts have that type of numbering.

C# 60's
D# 70's
E# 80's
F# 90's

The 3rd letter will be Z for mustang, though its possible some parts will not be a Z because they were used from a different vehicle.

Re: Instrument gauge panels

The 1965 GT used the 1966 instrument panel instead of the Falcon type (bar speedometer and idiot lights). The change from a 1965 to a 1966 guage panel is easy and in a number of Mustang restoration books. It can be done in just a few hours. Be sure to label all the wires as you disconnect them since it will be easier than trying to read all the wire color codes to plug into the right guage.

Be sure to drop the steering column and put rag on it to prevent scratching. And just be patient and follow the restortion instructions as to where the wires go. Off course it will confuse a lot of Mustang purists but, heck, it is your car. Have fun!
