Pony Herd: 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback

Classic cars hiding pleasant secrets are always a good thing to find, and that’s precisely the story behind this ’67 Mustang Fastback. While it might not look like it at first glance, this is a car where a lot of the hard work has now been done, and it will be up to the new owner to finish the car to their own personal taste. Located in Aragon, Georgia, you will find the Mustang listed for sale here on eBay. The owner has set a BIN of $19,995, but the option is available to make an offer.

Looking around the yard, this is a chance to single out a pretty good project car from this herd of Mustangs. Once you take a close look at this particular car, you realize that the previous owner has been a busy little beaver. The front floors are new, as are the radiator support, cowl, and fenders. It appears from the seller’s description that the frame rails and torque boxes are solid, while there is no rust visible in the rear quarter panels, rockers, or doors. The owner seems to think that the car is now to the point where it would require appropriate preparation, and it could then be treated to a new coat of paint. I guess that the next choice would be whether to treat the car to a coat of its original Burnt Amber, or whether to head off in a different direction. The factory tinted glass all looks to be in quite reasonable condition, although there will be quite a list of external trim and chrome components required to finish the car’s exterior.

The seller says that the previous owner had the engine rebuilt, which indicates that this might be the original C-Code 289. There is no information on just what specifications the engine has been rebuilt to, but it does wear a Weiand intake in place of the original unit. I believe that the rear end is original, but the C4 automatic transmission has been consigned to the pages of history. In its place is a Tremec 5-speed manual, which should make the Mustang a comfortable cruiser on the open road. The Mustang rolled off the production line fitted with power steering, which is still present. The previous owner has taken the wise decision to upgrade the brakes to front discs which should inspire a bit more confidence. The engine bay has been nicely prepared prior to the 289 being slotted back into place and is going to present well once the car is up and running once again. However, this isn’t simply going to be a case of slapping on a carb and firing it up, because there are plenty of electrical and plumbing components to be installed first.

The interior is a case of getting what you see, which isn’t a huge amount. There is no rear seat, while the fronts are little more than frames. There are components that have the potential to be restored, but the car will require a complete interior trim kit. At least these are readily available and remain quite affordable. If the interior is to be returned to something close to original, then all of the components for factory air conditioning will need to be sourced. One positive aspect of the interior being in its current state is the fact that we do get a clear look at the front floors. It would seem that the seller’s claim about their condition was no idle boast.

If this Mustang Fastback is as solid and clean as the owner indicates, he does make a very good point. It is certainly possible to buy a rust-free shell from Dynacorn to build a classic, but that will cost you $18,500, and you will have just that; a body-shell. For a mere $500 more, this is a car that isn’t that far from being complete. If it is solid and clean, then it could be a pretty good buy at the price.

    It looks like someone had good intentions on this car!! A 289 and 5 speed Tremec isn’t a bad starting point!! 67 was my favorite year and at least most of the body parts are here!!!

    Same here TimM..I can deal with some rust and bird turds but if there’s green stuff in the floor I’d hope for green carpet..and if the vehicle is 70% rust just kill it gently…personally I’ve sold more than a few vehicles and I tried to make sure that they were at least presentable (meaning half azzed clean)

    Agree it’s nicer than many cars on this site but still wouldn’t pay anywhere near 20k for it. Will still require a significant additional investment of cash and work to make it drivable.

  6. Stangalang

    Absolutely true Steve..but if you know the right people it’s not too hard to acquire decent or new parts for most any project. And most times if you’re showing up with a pickup and trailer to buy a vehicle and you have $$$…well I’ve bought decent vehicles for half the online ask. Just saying

    The Ebay pics of the rear quarters behind the tires looks like possible bondo, but can’t tell for sure. Really like the ’67’s as well!

    Not sure why he is selling and not completing this car. The owner looks to be a Mustang restorer or shop. This one will need 20K in parts and not including the body work and paint. Lot of work….but nice.

    Lots of coupes in the yard, wonder why he wants to unload the fastback. Perfect car for a 347 with that non original 5 speed, custom aluminum dash, recaros, you name it. Or the stock route I guess.
    Either way it’s a lot of dough to finish.

    Because the dude is a flipper. He buys 67 Mustang fastbacks and sells them. He is not interested in restoring the car, he is interested in flipping it. How do I know? Because he bought a 67 fastback out from under me. Even if the price was right, I’d never buy from him personally. Your mileage may vary..

    Love 67s. Beat year for almost every car in USA. Oh how it sucks today.

      Actually, I would say that the 69 model year is the apex of high performance muscle and pony cars.

    The 67 is not as valuable or desirable as a 68, but it’s still a good car.

    • MrMustang

      I personally like the 67 over the 68 and yes I owned a 1967 fastback at one time. Why would you think the 68 is more valuable or desirable? 67 Shelbys bring more $$ than 68’s. 67 GT fastbacks have a better deluxe interior than a 68. Not sure why you would think that?
