Description for Ford Mustang 1967

1967 Ford Mustang non-fastback style


Background

This 1967 Ford Mustang is a single-family car. Originally purchased new by my parents from Santa Monica Ford in California, it became mine in around 1973.


Starting as a daily driver, it eventually became a “test bed” for every horsepower enhancing idea I could come up with at the time. When I had the opportunity to get a 429 cu. in. big block and its companion C-6 automatic, the 289 and C-4 were removed and sold. The big block and transmission were built up and installed in 1976 and were run on the street and strip until 1983. The engine was pulled out that year to install in a drag hydro (recently sold). The car has not had an engine since that time.


The C-6 transmission with 10” high stall torque converter remains and is currently for sale BUT is NOT INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION.


The vehicle was moved to Indianapolis, Indiana in 1987 and has been stored in varying locations around this area since then.


Configuration (as purchased)

This vehicle has a non-fastback, “notch” style, hard top roof. It was a simple, vanilla 289-2V car with single exhaust. The only remarkable item in the as purchased configuration, was the vinyl (“mod”) top-- part of a rare, dealer branding package. You can search for branded Mustangs Online to find out more. One site that has info on this is at: mustangattitude.com.


A Marti report is included in the auction to verify this stated, original configuration.

Condition (current) Details

While this car was in very good shape and fully operational prior to going into storage, years of sitting took its toll. In on of the storage locations there was a time when water leaked into the interior from a few places and caused the carpet to mildew and the interior metal to rust or corrode. As a result, I stripped out all carpet and sound abatement materials. Some of the seats still have a mildew smell also but no visible fungus growth.


Almost all interior rust is “surface”. There is however a structural rust issue where the cowling connects to the heater. That sheet metal has rusted through and will need to be repaired. I can't see if there are any other issues under the dash.


At one time, I had a minor rear-end collision which damaged about 2-3” of the front hood, and cracked the pot-metal that the headlights are mounted in. As a result, I purchased all new, original Ford components to replace all of those that were damaged, except the hood. The hood was repaired with bondo at the time and is now cracking. in that front area. I don't believe there was any damage to the unibody frame or any other component that wasn't replaced, in that incident.


The rear bumper is slightly bent and has a “ding” in it from pushing against a metal pole. There may be other dings in the rear section of the car. The rear wheel wells have been “pie” cut to accommodate slicks without using a narrowed rear end. There also is a hole drilled behind the rear windshield that was used for a CB radio antenna.


As mentioned earler, most of the car interior and exterior rust is cosmetic or surface rust and doesn't effect structural integrity. Note that there could be an issue with proper brake operation due to rust however.


The Cragar S/S rims have mostly been cleaned up but will need to be re-plated, due to corrosion damage.


If you are REALLY interested and you can't find an answer to your question either in the pictures or in this text, PLEASE DO contact me through Ebay. Also, do not ask to buy it outside of the Ebay system.


This will be a customer pick-up purchase only. It has a tow bar but that is recommended for short distances of a few miles or less due to the “oversteering” effect of the front bias-ply tires. I recommend using a trailer for (safer) longer transport.


The high performance C 6 automatic transmission with high-stall torque converter is available for separate purchase and NOT INCLUDED in this auction.


I really hate to sell this car for obvious sentimental reasons. However, I just don't have the time for a restoration project like this. Hopefully, someone else will and be able to enjoy the finished product.
