The Ford Mustang has some strange skeletons knocking bones in its closet, including the Mustero. Believe it or not, the Mustang/Ranchero hybrid you see above was actually a Ford-licensed product. The company authorized Beverly Hills Mustang LTD to produce the machines for just two years.

At the time, the conversion came carrying a price tag of $6,500. That made the Mustero as expensive as the Shelby Cobra. Needless to say, buyers weren't exactly lining up with cash in hand for a pint-sized pickup sports car, and only 50 were ever produced, including this well-restored example.

According to the owner, this '66 Mustero received a complete restoration in the '80s and has been carefully stored indoors since then. A 289-cubic-inch V8 lurks under the hood, mated to a three-speed manual gearbox. Manual steering and brakes are part of the party as well, so be prepared for a work out when it comes time to wheel this machine through town.

The vehicle currently sits with a Buy It Now price of $32,500. Head over to eBay Motors for a look at the listing.eBay Find of the Day: 1966 Ford Mustang Mustero originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 21 Dec 2011 10:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
