While some Ford Ponycar collectors tend to focus on the first 2.5 model years or so, others prefer the late 1960s, before the Mustang grew in size. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this fully restored 1967 Ford Mustang GTA Hardtop. This dry California car has undergone a high-quality nut and bolt restoration.
This particular ponycar was built at Ford’s San Jose, California factory on August 2, 1967 and was delivered to the San Jose region. It came from the factory with the following options – Sports Sprint option package, closed crankcase ventilation system, exhaust emission control, rocker panel moldings, power disc brakes, power steering, Select-Aire air-conditioning, AM radio, tinted glass, deluxe seat belts and wheel covers.
The Sports Sprint package included hood vents, recessed turn signals, whitewall tires, full wheel covers, bright metal rocker panel moldings, chrome air cleaner and vinyl-covered shift handle. Often, the Sports Sprint package came on Mustangs ordered in special or spring-like colors. Ford referred to it as a limited edition and included it as part of the car’s third birthday celebration. It is also the highly desirable GT-A model “A” designating Mustang GT with an automatic transmission.
Finished in Brittany Blue Metallic with a white accent stripe, this car’s paint and trim are in overall excellent order. Any blemishes present are only noticeable upon extremely close inspection. This pony’s glass panels are intact and crack-free while the car’s lights are haze-free and look great, including the fog lights. The car’s bumpers are near-immaculate and fit well to the body. You’ll find a full-sized spare tire in the trunk. The car’s bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the battery looks newer.
This Mustang rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, size 215/70R14 in front and 225/70R14 in back. Each tire surrounds chrome Mustang rally wheels. The tires are in very good order while the wheels are in excellent condition.
Under the hood is Ford’s 289 CID V-8 engine with a two-barrel carburetor that breathes through twin-tip dual exhausts and backed up by Ford’s C-4 SelectShift three-speed automatic transmission and a 2.79:1 differential. Driver convenience features include factory Select-Aire air-conditioning, power steering, power front disc and rear drum brakes, a pop-open fuel cap and tinted glass.
Inside, a new Parchment vinyl interior replaces the car’s original two-tone blue vinyl interior. The front buckets and rear bench are in excellent condition, as is the Parchment carpet and headliner. The color-keyed three-spoke steering wheel looks great while the instrument panel, with its fully array of instrumentation and woodgrain appliqués and brown accents harmonizes well with the rest of the interior’s theme. The inner door panel echo the majority of the interior’s condition though the right one has a small blemish. The center and overhead consoles, the latter equipped with map lights, are in great shape, as is the shift lever. Completing the interior is a factory AM radio.
The 1967 model year Mustang was the first redesign of the original model. Ford’s designers began drawing up a larger version even as the original was achieving sales success, and while “Iacocca later complained about the Mustang’s growth, he did oversee the redesign for 1967.” The major mechanical feature was to allow the installation of a big-block V-8 engine. The overall size, interior and cargo space were increased. Exterior trim changes included concave taillights, side scoop and usual yearly wheel and gas cap changes.
The 1967 Deluxe Interior was revised, discontinuing the embossed running horse motif on the seat backs (the source for the “pony interior” nickname) in favor of a new deluxe interior package, which included special color options, brushed aluminum (from August 1966 production) or woodgrain dash trim, seat buttons and special door panels. The hardtop also included upholstered quarter trim panels, a carryover from the 1965-66 deluxe interior. The 1967 hardtop also had the chrome quarter trim caps, carried over from 1965-66. The 1967 deluxe interior included stainless steel-trimmed seat back shells, similar to those in the Thunderbird.
The deluxe steering wheel, which had been included in the deluxe interior for the 1965-66, became optional and could also be ordered with the standard interior. The air-conditioning option was fully integrated into the dash, the speakers and stereo were upgraded and unique center and overhead consoles were options. Gone was the Rally-Pac since the new instrument cluster had provisions for an optional tachometer and clock. Its size and shape also precluded the installation of the accessory atop the steering column. The convenience group with four warning lights for low fuel, seat belt reminder, parking brake not released and door ajar were added to the instrument panel, or, if one ordered the optional console and A/C, the lights were mounted on the console.
Documentation includes a standard Marti Report, outlining many of the car’s originating facts and equipment.
Competition to this Mustang in 1967 included the other members of the 1960s Ponycar Corral, Chevrolet’s Camaro, Dodge’s Dart, Mercury’s Cougar, Plymouth’s Barracuda and Pontiac’s Firebird.
