1967 Ford Mustang fastback
First let me start by stating I know this car looks like a 1968 fastback GT. Well that is because the prior owner to me (again the guy from Kentucky) changed the quarters years ago and front fenders.. and put the hood scoop on to give the car the look of the 68.5 gt (428 CJ'ed engine fastbacks which in my estimation is the coolest of the 67/68 breed). I continued along that mode and installed a gt rear valence, dual exhaust (fullyaluminized) and thedual tipped exhaust tips. I paid $8500 for the car from Kentucky and was satisfied with the purchase until (a couple of paragraphs from now will explain).
upon purchase of the vehicle just 2 years ago (on ebay)Isent the car to my one friend who was an old school mechanic. He was in charge of getting the car to run and drive.He started with the brakes and did brake shoes,wheel cylinders, hardware andhoses and then new synthetic brake fluid and bled the systems till they worked great), he then turned to the engine which the 289 fired up smoothly with the replacement of a holley 600 vacuum secondary carb and anew fuel pump. Then the engine received a new starter, alternator and water pump and radiator. then The exhaust was added later..
After the mechanicals were tended too, the car went to a professional mustang restorer in north jersey who tended to the necessary welding. As I said earlier, this is where things got interesting. Because the car I bougtht looked like it had good floors but they were rust covered. Well once you removed the carpet it was obvious the floors were too thin metal wise and needed replacement. At this time two new full length floors were installed, toe boards, torque boxes, floor supports and then the seat risers. They were all welded in nicely neatly. the front frame and shock towers looked good as did the rear torque boxes and the rear frame rails.
Then the car went to a Body shop in north jersey for the body and paint. That bill was $5500. The only panel that was replaced was the LF fender and that is because at the mechanics shop when moving the car around the tire came off and damaged the fender beyond repair.
The result is a fine looking classic auto that will get thumbs up from the chevy and mopar guys!!! believe me, and that and more from anyone else.
Ive got a lot to write but feel I am saying too much.. So
I will try to speed it up.
1. The car is factory equipped with a fold down rear seat.
2. The interior was also converted to 1968 with thewood on the dash andan aftermarket wood style wheel.
3. The car has American Racing torque thrust D wheels (ala Steve McQueen and Bullet) and BF Goodrich 205 70r14s all around with less than 50 miles on them, but I also have a picture of the car with the original style GT wheels which I have a matched set of and have new 60 series tires on that set of rims. You can choose for yourself if you want the AR or the original wheel, not both sets.
4. I have purchased but not installed GT fender badges and GT fog lights to complete the GT look. Ialso have rocker trim moldings and wheel lip moldings which I have not decided to put on, but could go to the new owner as well.
5. IF I have missed something please ask me. Tony at 5 five 1- 2 zero 4- zero 7 zero 7.
6. Why am I selling it, Well I am no stranger to classic mustangs. I have a 1967 Shelby gt350 for almost 20 years now and it is too nice and too valuable to take out for thatfor a drive and park somewhere. So 2 years ago I bought this car and plans were to build it into my summer time cruiser. Well changes at home have caused that plan to be changed.
7. I will say lastly for now, I have a 4 speed top loader, a power steering system and a set of disc brakesall from a 1968 mustang. I can work a deal and put these items into the trunk of the car for you to install at a later time.
8. Only because Im sure he will read this, Ive been offered $21k and then $23k for the car, I turned those offers down.
Thanks for the reading!!!.
