This 1967 Ford Mustang coupe has a nice look, doesn’t it? Not some kind of over-done Shelby clone, not finished in some modern color, but rather a tastefully modified coupe that offers an authentic feel with a few small surprises.
First of all, it's almost impossible to make a vintage Mustang look bad, and this one certainly attracts attention in the showroom. The black paint doesn’t scream at you, but after you spend a few minutes looking it over, you can see that while it was done some time ago, it was done well. The panel lines are arrow-straight and line up well, a critical factor on these cars in particular, whose C-shaped side moldings leave nowhere for bad gaps to hide. Then there are the custom details, especially the orange C-stripe and hood stripes that really pop against the black paint. It's not perfect, but since it's black, a pro could probably give it a modest cut and buff to really bring it back. Most of the trim is in good shape, too, although you may want to call one of the aftermarket suppliers and grab a fresh grille, since this one has seen better days. But on the upside, you also get those cool crystal clear headlights that offer an updated look.
The interior puts a neat spin on the original design, and it was done by that nice lady Sue, who shows up on "Gas Monkey Garage" now and then. Tan inserts in black buckets looks awesome, especially with the black paint outside, offering a custom look that's not too over-the-top. Matching two-tone door panels work well with the new seats, and the carpets remain in excellent condition throughout. Factory gauges are joined by an aftermarket dial parked under the A/C unit (ice cold, by the way), and you'll note that the Grant GT steering wheel has a Cobra horn button; a nice touch. The original radio is gone, replaced by a modern Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo head unit and we're happy to report that it sounds amazing with all the extra speakers. There's also a neatly finished trunk with custom enclosures for the subwoofers and amplifier, as well as a battery box to house a second battery for powering the massive stereo.
The engine bay isn’t detailed for show, but it is well engineered and ready to play. Ford’s 289 cubic inch V8 was almost an ideal blend of low-end torque and a great willingness to rev, both characteristics that are enhanced by the Edelbrock air filter and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor. Power steering is always a welcome option on an early Mustang, and that giant aluminum radiator up front should just about end any worries about overheating, no matter where you live. Long-tube headers dump into a rumbling dual exhaust system with twin glasspack mufflers, so it has an awesome performance sound. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission and the indestructible 9-inch rear end still hangs out back. The front end was recently rebuilt, and the glittering chrome Mustang Cobra wheels with fresh 245/45/17 rubber actually look pretty darned good on the vintage pony car.
A decent car with a lot of work already completed, this very affordable Mustang is ready to cruise and enjoy today. Call now!
