1967 Mustang GTA: 390 S-Code

1967 Mustang GTA 390

This 1967 Mustang GTA 390 S-Code has been stored in a dry garage for 30 years and has 105,000 miles on it. It is an automatic, but being a GTA means it has all the options you could want, like power windows and tach in the console. It’s listed here on craigslist at $15,900 and here on eBay for $17,500. There’s no rust in the pictures, but there is body damage painted over with a rattle can and of course there are a lot of runs in these areas. Properly restored, this could be a pricey car, but as always, what would it take to get it there? It looks like a great start for a project. So would you fully restore this Mustang or just do what it takes to make it a fun daily driver?

    Had this in hs (very first car). Mine was a fastback though, in auto-shop I installed a chrome straight-pipe exhaust on it. The C6 needed a re-build. No rust, good chrome but some primer spots. Got it for 500$ in 1975. Fastest car around except this senior had a 70 1/2 Z28 LT1.

      Jeff, how did you like changing the spark plugs in that beast?

    IMO it’s not even worth his lesser asking price. Too much bodywork that I see, the trunk lid doesn’t fit correctly the paints gone the hood is sprung or bent. Interior needs work and he does say it runs but doesn’t say if it shifts / stops.

    Haven’t seen that light up pony emblem since back in the day. A schoolmate’s brother had one and made such a big deal about the light bar with the light up pony…

    To answer your question, I’d vote for daily driver versus full restoration. This weekend I went to the Pioneer Valley GTO car show outside of Springfield, MA. There were wonderful fully restored cars of all makes. But the one that captivated me was a driver quality 1969 COPO Camaro that looked like it had a hard life. There was something about the aged paint, drag strip decals, and its authentic look that just drew me in (even though I am a Pontiac guy who went to the show to see GTOs).

    The power windows are an aftermarket add-on. Mustangs were not available with power windows in 1967. The rust looks to be extensive and there is no way to restore it at a reasonable cost given the asking price.

    Thanks Mark. I am a GM guy and I was wondering how you have factory power windows on the front 2 windows but not the back 2? Kind of terrible / home-made looking as well. Garaged for the last 30 years…where was it for the first 20, on the bottom of a lake? Rode hard, definitely put away wet. Good luck.

    not factory power windows, those were an add kit you could buy from jc whitney. and they looked terrible.
