1967 Ford Mustang

Purchased from the grandson of the original owner, the seller of this 1967 Ford Mustang Hardtop reportedly finished the restoration that the grandson had started. The included Marti Report shows the car is an original Sports Sprint model, and according to the seller, it’s still powered by its original C-code 289 V8 engine. The seller reportedly completed the restoration in 2018 and put it to use as a show car and cruiser. It is said to be restored to stock specifications, but with an upgrade to a modern Vintage Air air conditioning system that blows through the stock air vents. The restoration reportedly has about 1,500 miles on it.

POWERTRAIN

According to the seller, the C-code 289-2V V8 under the hood is this pony car’s original and was rated at 200 horsepower by Ford when new. It is said to start and run well, with no reported smoke or leaks, and the top end was reportedly redone in 2017. The engine is paired with a three-speed automatic transmission, which the seller says was rebuilt in 2021 and shifts well.

EXTERIOR

The exterior has been resprayed the car’s original N-code Diamond Blue color and the seller reports bodywork prior to the paint job included rust repair in a number of areas. As a result, the seller asserts the car is “rust-free.” The paintwork is said to be in “excellent” condition, with a few touched-up nicks and a noted scratch. The finish was reportedly corrected and ceramic-coated in February 2022. Additionally, the seller reports all of the glass is original and remains in “excellent” condition, with no reported chips or cracks. The door and trunk seals were reportedly replaced during the restoration and are said to remain in “excellent” condition. All of the exterior lighting is reported functional.

INTERIOR

This Mustang’s original-style, two-tone blue vinyl cabin has been restored to apparently stock condition, apart from an upgraded audio head unit featuring a retro design with a slidebar, LCD screen, and USB input. The seat covers and carpet reportedly were replaced during the restoration and appear in very good condition, with virtually no visible wear. The heater and gauges reportedly work normally, and all of the interior trim is said to be intact and in very good condition. The headliner is also reported to be in “excellent” condition. The car also has air conditioning, from a modern Vintage Air system that uses the original factory vents.
