390/4-Speed: 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback

I admit that I’m a sucker for a nice Mustang. While a ’66 Hardtop is high on my wish list, I wouldn’t say no if someone offered me this 1967 Fastback. Its presentation is first-rate, and it features a desirable drivetrain combination. The owner has decided that the time has come for it to head off to a new home. It is located in Elkhorn, Nebraska, and has been listed for sale here on eBay. The BIN price has been set at $72,000, although you could always choose to make an offer.

This Mustang would suit the type of buyer that simply wants to slip behind the wheel and enjoy the classic car ownership experience. As you will see as you look through the photos, it is a car that wants for nothing. The panels are laser straight, and there are no signs of any rust issues. The owner states that apart from one rear quarter panel that was replaced early in this car’s life, all of the steel is original. The Mustang has never had any rust problems, and that remains true to this very day. It received a repaint in the 1980s, and this has held up exceptionally well. The Burnt Amber paint shines beautifully, and there are no signs of any scratches or dings.  The owner supplies a Marti Report, and this indicates that the tinted glass is an original feature. Like the trim and chrome, there are no signs of any problems there. The Torque Thrust wheels aren’t original, but they do suit the character of the vehicle perfectly. If originality is vital for the buyer, then finding a set of styled steel wheels shouldn’t be a difficult task. Even if they can’t find genuine items, high-quality reproductions are readily available for under $700 per set.

Lifting the hood on the Mustang reveals a V8 with enough power to keep most owners happy. The car rolled off the production line as an S-Code vehicle, but the engine that occupies this space now isn’t numbers-matching. It is still a 390, but it has been treated to Cobra Jet heads, a solid lifter camshaft, an aluminum intake, and a Holley 750 Double-Pumper. Spent gases find their way out of the engine through a new Flowmaster dual exhaust. The S-Code should have been pumping out 320hp when new, but these upgrades mean that this pony probably now has a few extra horses. The power finds its way to the 9″ rear end via a 4-speed Top-Loader transmission. The Mustang is also equipped with power steering and power front disc brakes. When new, it would have been capable of storming the ¼ mile in 14.1 seconds. I suspect that it might shave a few tenths off that time today. Everywhere that you look in the engine bay, what you see is spotless presentation. You could literally eat off that engine because it looks better than new. The good news is that the appearance doesn’t flatter to deceive. The owner states that the Fastback runs and drives perfectly. The transmission shifts smoothly, which is assisted by the new Centerforce clutch. If all you want to do is hit the road, this classic looks ready to do that.

I’ve been searching for one aspect of this Mustang that disappoints me, and I’m coming up short on that one. The interior presents just as nicely as the rest of the vehicle, and it needs nothing. The only issue that some people might have is that the original AM radio has made way for a radio/cassette player. It doesn’t look like the dash has been cut to fit this. Therefore, a genuine unit could be slotted back in without much drama. The upholstered surfaces look perfect, as does the carpet and dash. The original owner ticked a few boxes on the Order Sheet because the Fastback features a Sport Deck rear seat, a floor console, a roof console with map lights, a remote exterior mirror, and a factory tachometer.

If someone is looking for a numbers-matching classic, this 1967 Mustang Fastback is not going to be the car for them. However, for the person searching for a Mustang that they can drive and enjoy immediately, this is a Ford that deserves a closer look. I would love to park this one in my garage, but unfortunately, there are 72,000 reasons why I can’t. The person who does buy it will be able to take the car anywhere with their head held high. As I said, a ’66 Hardtop has been my life-long dream, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I will envy the buyer of this ’67 Fastback. If they would like a chauffeur, then I’m willing to help.

    Beautiful car. For $72k I would be afraid to drive it anywhere.

    A stunning Mustang but that’s a knee-buckling price. I’m not sure it’s worth all of that considering it’s a non-matching numbers car but for someone with loads of disposable income, it wouldn’t surprise me if the seller got close to his ask. If you found a decent project similarly equipped, it would probably cost you near that price to get it to this level. Still, early Mustangs are very desirable cars so maybe (probably) I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about!

      It’s being sold by a dealer, hence the inflated price. For that many greenbacks, I’d rather take a completely original one in excellent but not perfect shape.

    Sharp. Absolutely sharp.
    Torque thrusts look so right on this car, maybe they should have been optional straight from Ford! Changing to stock wheels would ruin that tough look it has now.
    Now that 390 just might break 14 seconds, built similar to another Mustang Bob Tasca discussed once besides the 428 car. With mods they could go, off the lot never 14.1, never.
    Priced out of reach for driver status, unless money is coming outta your ears.

      390’s were absolute pigs, but the Cobra Jet heads address their breathing problem. Maybe it will turn a 14 now.

      Oops — missed this comment before I posted mine below. If 390s could go low 14s, they’d have sold a whole lot more of them.

    Just a note to those closeby to the Mississippi Gulf Coast: The event called ‘Cruisin the Coast’ begins this weekend and runs through the 11th. It is the biggest entertainment event annually in Mississippi. It has been bringing in over ten thousand of every type fun vehicle you can imagine or dream up. Rat Rods, classics, Retros and just about every type you’ve ever seen or worked on. There are some serious sellers and buyers but mostly just fun. The Beach Boys are usually the events signature show but with all the casinos competing there is plenty of other entertainment. There are car events of course, a lot of them. It is the first weekend in October every year……No, I am not with the Chamber of Commerce. I live in the area.

    I guess 1 got a padded ’68 type steering wheel hub on a ’67 with delux interior? I’m guessing that was not very common.
    Wonder what the total $$$$$ would be building one using a dynacorn body.

    Sharp car….a lot of cash, wow!
    As cool as this car is, if I were fortunate enough to own it the first thing I would do is swap that steering wheel out for a wood version. Some of the Ford padded versions take away from the sportiness.
    Given the overall safety of the car in its 67 configuration, that padding on the hub doesnt amount to that much protection.

    Why do people people try to justify these ridiculous car prices with statements like, “It would cost you this much to build one”? I’ve restored both a 67 Vista Cruiser and a 67 Cougar GT for about 25K. This includes the purchase of the vehicle. And these two cars are not Mustangs so they were harder to find parts/restore.

    Another seller who got way too into the restoration trying to recover his expenses. Drop a car off at a shop and say “restore it’. 72 large is easy to get to. Not so easy to get back. Or maybe his wife found the bill!

    Where did you get the 14.1-second qtr-mile time for an S-code when new? It was more like mid-15s according to all contemporary road tests. The 351C intro’d for 1970 was quicker.

    They’re starting out at the top price of NADAGuide for a 390 S Code, four speed with Sprint Package at $72K.
    Non original engine and paint will subtract from that… but not by a lot.
    You can always come down on your price but you can never go up on your price…
    1964-1966 Mustangs were pretty much clones of each other.
    1969-1970 only differed with front end and faux quarter panel air scoops.
    Which makes the 1967 Mustang a stand alone year as it was totally different from the earlier years and a lot different from subsequent years.
    Probably most importantly was the widening of the engine bay and car to accept a big block engine which adds value as being the first year for that.
    It’s not a ‘67 Ford without that steering wheel crash pad…
    This car should go for $50K – $60K.

      You’re forgetting the 68. It’s a 67 with sidemarker lights and higher headrests, also a few more trim options. Oh, Ford dropped the 289 and offered thec302 that year.

      I had a 1968 GT fastback with the 390 and top loader. The ’68 is virtually identical to the ’67 except for the louvers in the cove, right behind the door.

      The Bullitt Mustang was a ’68.

      If I had the money I would buy this and give it to my dad to replace his 67 convertible that got wrecked in the 70s before I was born.

    A.J. If it was privately owned, you would be on the mark.
    In this case, it’s being sold by a dealer.

    Everyone is criticizing the $72K. Since this is the dealer’s price, it will go for a lot less. They ALWAYS start high.

    To be truthful, not that I would lie, I was never a fan of “Stangs”. Why would I be? I drove a new ’65 GTO.
    On the other hand, I’ve grown to appreciate the old ponies, at my advanced age(76). This one is a beauty…..
