One Of A Kind? 1967 Ford Mustang GT

There is no doubt that 1st Generation Mustangs remain one of the most desirable classic cars in today’s market, and this 1967 GT is a prime example that would benefit from some restoration work. The original owner ordered it with a fantastic combination of optional extras, and the seller emphasizes its rarity based on its specifications. He has decided that the time has come for it to head to a new owner who has the means and the time to return it to its former glory. Located in Towson, Maryland, you will find the Mustang listed for sale here on Craigslist. The owner has set the price at $25,000. I have to say a big thank you to Barn Finder Jay L for spotting this classic pony car for us.

When the Mustang rolled off the production line, it wore Burnt Amber paint. It received a color change at some point, and to say that the quality of the workmanship wasn’t great would be an understatement. Whoever performed the work decided that primer wasn’t essential, which means that the current Wimbledon White is now peeling off quite readily. If we are going to consider this from a positive perspective, at least it means that the buyer is going to find removing the remaining paint to be an easy task! It was also ordered with a Black vinyl top, but it appears that this was probably removed when the color change was performed. The owner indicates that some repairs have been undertaken on the floors at some point, but the current state of the floors and frame is unknown. However, with the shock towers looking clean and a lack of visible external rust, there is probably some cause to be cautiously optimistic. The lower extremities like the rear quarter panels and rockers look good, while the same is true of the back window area. All of the trim and chrome is present, and like the original wheels, its condition looks very acceptable if the car is going to be transformed into a driver-quality restoration. The Mustang also features tinted glass, and this is in good condition.

The original owner took some time over the options list when he ordered this Mustang, and it shows when you look at its mechanical specifications. He chose to equip it with an A-Code 289ci V8, a 4-speed manual transmission, a 3.00 Limited Slip rear end, power steering, and power brakes. That little A-Code should be pumping out 225hp, which is enough to propel the car through the ¼ mile in 15.5 seconds. It isn’t clear whether the Mustang is a numbers-matching classic, but the general impression seems to be that it is. Surprisingly, the owner also doesn’t indicate how well the vehicle runs or drives. The engine bay looks quite tidy, which is always a pretty encouraging sign with a car like this. Even if it requires some mechanical work, this shouldn’t present a lot of problems.

It seems that the original owner liked a slice of comfort with his Mustang, and that means that he ticked a few good boxes when it came to interior appointments. These included the ones beside air conditioning, Deluxe interior trim, floor and roof consoles, and a factory tachometer and trip meter. The interior remains intact, and if the car is to be considered as a survivor, it needs very little. The wheel has one almighty crack, which is a shame because otherwise, its condition is quite good. I believe that the carpet might have been replaced, so there are no issues there. The upholstery on the driver’s seat is stretched, but it isn’t too bad. The foam also looks like it might be beginning to collapse, so I would be inclined to replace this. I wouldn’t be surprised if doing that one job might address the stretching to a large extent. Otherwise, the rest of the interior trim would benefit from a deep clean, which would be my first priority before I considered spending any money.

As a project car, this 1967 Mustang GT seems to have a lot to offer its next owner. I tend to be cautious when it comes to the question of rarity because rarity doesn’t always equate to desirability. A perfect example is the current Fiat 500. There are more than 200,000 different combinations for buyers to consider if you go through the options sheets for that car. The inclusion of many of these options will not make a particular car more valuable, even though there is every chance that it will be the only example built to those specifications. The Marti Report that the seller supplies with this car does indicate that it is unique, but whether that makes it more valuable is a point that could be argued from either side of the fence. Regardless of the claims, this is a desirable classic, and that makes it worthy of restoration.

      Yup. It was part of the exterior decor package which I believe also included the turn signal hood which this car also has.

    Very nice interior which must have complimented the original exterior color scheme. Nice car. Enjoy.

    Not a first generation Mustang but a real beauty (and nicely optioned) when new. I can’t remember the last time i saw a Mustang with that tail trim panel. I hope this one goes to a good home and gets restored to its original glory.

    25 seems high even with some nice boxes checked from new!
    Taillight panel was also over the counter, should have Kelsey Hayes 4 piston calipers, dual exhaust w/h-pipe!
    Also looks to have the very nifty Tilt-A-Way column, by the two door switches!

      Brian,

      Not a tilt-away column, not a tilt steering wheel either [hole for the T/S stalk would have been larger]. The double door jamb switches were used when the car was equipped with the overhead console.

    Vinyl roof on a GT?
    GT but not a 291hp hypo?

    Let’s see…$25k for this nice notchback 4 speed 289 w a/c which looks like it might be drivable, or $30k for the red fastback six banger auto which looks like it has needs. I know which one I’d spend my money on.

    Looks like a great start…..though you’re starting at 25 large. And as a matter of taste…I can’t deal with white interiors. Probably looks better in burnt amber with a black vinyl top though..kind of copper color I think

    Nice car for the money with all the options checked off. Much better deal than the overpriced red 67 bare bones 6 cylinder fastback. Rare original color would look nice with the deluxe white interior. Looks like future Mustang owners are going to have to start taking out mortgages to buy unrestored cars.

    Who cares about the quarter mile…this thing was built for road racing. With that 3.00 rear end, I’ll bet this thing can grab some speed at the end of a long straight

    Hello Bob;
    I’m not a expert, but I believe you’re incorrect!
    Personally I never had the option on any of my Stangs 3- Fastback
    But on my Cougars 3-XR7’s A codes and a GT XR7 4-sp
    The upper jamb switch was for the courtesy lights w/wo the mini or full length overhead consoles
    The lower switch activated a relay to activate the Vacuum canister operated Tilt-a-Way column
    Most often found on Thunderbirds, as that’s were I often got spare parts from!

    Tilt and upper console were great options and usually seen on upper end cars like Cougars, Shelbys and upper end cars.

    Brian,

    I stand corrected! My shop restored/repaired hundreds of Gen 1 Mustangs, but I’d never heard of a Mustang with a Tilt-away column, only the T-Bird. Based on my research, they were available in the Mustang [as well as all Ford cars] for a short time, from late in the ’67 model year, into the 1969 models. Here’s where I found the info: http://automotivemileposts.com/tbird1961swingaway.html

    Hello Bill;
    Always learning;
    Still a neat option, I would think if it had a Marti report that should be listed!
    It’s like hard to find now, about like if I needed parts for my 68 GS400 Conv that has tilt column, key on dash with the walnut wheel and spider web style horn cap late 67, early 68
    Thanks Brian

    Hello all;
    After relooking at pics also noticed factory AM/FM!
    This has to be one of the most option out notchbacks I’ve come across!
    Tach w/trip!
    As I said before I believe that the tail panel as well as the Cobra dress up kit was most likely over the counter as they were not available upon ordering!
    Had a Savy buyer and a Gear head for a Salesman?
    Thoughts?
    Thanks Brian
