What a year 1966 was. President Lyndon Johnson said on the 12th of Jan, “the USA will stay in Vietnam as long as aggression commands us to battle”. John Lennon said, “we are [the Beatles] now more famous than Jesus”. England won the world cup 4-2 and on 8th sep Star Trek was aired for the first time and we heard those immortal words, “beam me up Scotty”. Petrol was 25p a gallon and the average house cost £3840 and of course Stacey was born.
1966 was a face lift year with the GT dash now standard on all models. Interior trim mods included new door cards and a modified dash pad. The exterior changes were less pronounced with a slated grill to the front and larger quarter panel trims
