Sons surprise dad with his dream 1966 Ford Mustang

Watching a long-promised moment happen is pretty awesome

We all have a dream car in mind. It’s the one we constantly picture in our driveway, imagine ourselves driving, and check out its current pricing a little more than we probably should. For Coby Orgeron’s father, Dave, that car was a 1966 Ford Mustang painted in Tahoe Turquoise.

Coby and his brother had always planned to save up and buy him one. They even asked Dave what his favorite model year and color were two years ago.

This year, that goal became reality and was captured in a video posted to YouTube. The pair found the car they were looking for in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, bought it, and took it home to Bayou Gauche, Louisiana.

Rather than just driving it up and presenting it to Dave, however, his sons hatched a plan: They parked the Mustang along the road and slapped a “For Sale” sign in the window. They found a bystander to act as the person selling the car. 

The brothers picked up their dad to head to breakfast and “accidentally” drove by the car. You can hear Dave commenting about the car in the video.

“Oh, look at this,” he exclaimed.

They all get out to look at the Mustang and chat with its “owner.” That’s when Dave learned the car was, in fact, his.

He was overcome by emotion and had to take it all in, but after a round of hugs and thank yous, he climbed inside his new classic.

The feelgood video ended with Dave driving his dream Mustang down the street for the first time.
