Clean Survivor: 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback 2+2

We’ve seen a few nice, original 1st generation Mustangs popping up here at Barn Finds in recent times, and this ’67 Fastback 2+2 looks like a real beauty. It is just a very solid and clean car that can be driven and enjoyed immediately. If this is a Mustang that really takes your fancy (and who would blame you?), you will find it located in Dallas, Texas, and listed for sale here on eBay. Bidding on the classic pony car has been extremely strong, and has pushed the price along to $32,000. At that price, the reserve hasn’t been met.

The owner of the Mustang holds a Marti Report, and this verifies that the car is wearing its original color of Clearwater Aqua. The paint itself looks really nice, although it isn’t clear whether it is original, or whether the Mustang has undergone a repaint at some point in the past. Looking the car over from top to bottom, there are no obvious signs of any rust issues. The owner supplies a couple of shot’s of the car’s underside, and while these aren’t conclusive, they certainly seem to indicate that the Mustang is structurally solid. The car even wears its original California black plates.

The interior of the Mustang is another area that presents quite nicely. It isn’t perfect, but it is certainly looking pretty good for a 52-year-old car. The Aqua trim compliments the external paint color nicely, and looking around, there really doesn’t appear as though there are any major trim issues that would need to be addressed. The vinyl trim on the rear seat is a bit rippled, but I think that it could be glued back into place. The carpet is also getting a tired look, but it might respond quite well to a professional clean. I noticed that there is an aftermarket radio/cassette player squirreled away under the dash, and speakers have been fitted to the rear of the car. Otherwise, the interior appears to be quite clean and original.

Judging by how spotlessly clean the engine bay is, I suspect that the A-Code 289ci V8 has been out of the Mustang at some point, and the under-hood area has been the subject of some fairly intensive detailing. Certainly, the paint under there looks a lot fresher than you would expect from a car of this age, although the owner does use the word “original” when describing the engine bay. The Mustang also features a C4 automatic transmission and power steering. The owner states that the car starts, runs, and drives exactly as it should, with no problems or issues. He also says that the original California smog pump is sitting in the trunk and that it goes with the car.

Clean survivor Mustangs are always a great find, and they tend to stir their fair share of interest amongst enthusiasts. This one has certainly done that, because not only have 13 individuals been undertaking some pretty healthy bidding, but a further 145 people are currently watching the listing. Do we have any readers who are willing to jump aboard on this classic?

    The car has been repainted. Fender bolts were never painted at the factory. Inner fenders and supports have been repainted…incorrect sheen and Ford ID sticker missing from left front inner fender/shock tower. One more oddity, the lower front fender side 1967-68 Mustang horse badges had the V-8 engine cubic inches specified on top of the badge except the GT, 289, 302, etc.. The six cylinders did not. This is badged with six cylinder Mustang fender ornaments. New or replacement fenders or? I hope the bidders are asking good questions. Clean car though.

      Yup, interesting stuff going on under the blue paint on the cowl to the rear of the air cleaner and under the black paint at the tops of the front side of the shock towers. Think I would have to lay my hands on this one before shelling out that kind of money. Very nice looking car but as they say — “If it’s too good to be true………..”.

    Nice car but if I am going to spend that kind of coin on it, over 32K, then it better have more options like PDB, AC, console, or deluxe interior/exterior. JMHO

    This Mustang is identical to the one I bought on Aug. 6th, 1967 for $3462.00 only my car was fire engine red, wish I still had it now.

    All good points. Says its a texas car but who knows where it was from?? Checker over good. 34.4 now. Rust never sleeps. No pics of the underbelly where your trouble lies, and the cowl plenum. Good luck to the new owner!

    Folks have been collecting/restoring Mustangs for years and years. I bought my first Mustang in ’83 and there were clubs and parts vendor’s already well established which kind of surprised me at the time. Way before people got nostalgic for cars like GTO’s and the like.
    This is a clean pony for sure, not an exciting car to drive by any means, just pretty. I have a hard time believing it’s completely original which would dictate the cost or value of it. If I’m wrong it wouldn’t be the first time.

    Nice LOOKING car, but photographs can make almost anything look good. That being said, I would put some Magnum 500’s on it and enjoy it!

    This car deserves $15 extra correct silver wipers from Rockauto.
    & a wiper parking position adjustment.
