S-Code 390: 1967 Ford Mustang GTA Fastback

While it might be a full, numbers-matching car, this 1967 Mustang GTA Fastback is going to require a full restoration. It might be partially disassembled, but it does appear as though all of the removed parts are present. If a Mustang project is high on your bucket list, then you will find this one located in Bolton, Ontario, Canada, and listed for sale here on eBay. Bidding on the GTA has now reached $17,000, and at that price, the reserve has been met.

Starting its life finished in Brittany Blue, the vehicle has fallen foul to all of the usual rust issues that we have become used to in these 1st generation Mustangs. Most of the body’s lower extremities such as the rear quarters, rockers, lower fenders, and floors will require replacement. Someone has commenced the process of cutting out the front floors, but the rears look like they might be pretty solid. It isn’t clear what state the trunk pan is in, but given how much cutting, welding, and grinding lies ahead for the next owner, replacing the pan would seem like just another task to tackle. What we have no information on is the state of the frame and torque boxes, but the driver’s side front frame rail is partially visible in one shot, and it looks like it will require some work. The single photo of the engine bay also reveals what would appear to be some pretty significant rust around the battery tray that will need to be addressed.

The heavy workload on the Mustang continues once you look inside. The Blue vinyl trim is looking pretty tired, and complete restoration is definitely going to be on the cards. The items that have been removed from the interior all seem to be present, and while some of the trim items should restore okay, there will be pieces like seat covers and the headliner that will need to be replaced. Other components such as the dash pad will be pretty borderline, and only a personal inspection will reveal if they are salvageable. The original owner didn’t load the car up with optional equipment, although the console, AM radio, and Sport Deck rear seat are nice inclusions.

The GTA is a numbers-matching car, and the original owner chose a pretty nice combination to power this particular vehicle. Getting things up and moving is an S-Code 390ci V8, while he also ticked the boxes next to the C6 automatic transmission, 3.25 limited-slip rear end, and power steering. With 320hp available to the owner, this combination was capable of propelling the GTA from 0-60 in 6.3 seconds, while it could also romp through the ¼ mile in 14.5 seconds. It isn’t clear when the Mustang last moved under its own power, or if the engine even turns freely. The owner does state that the car will require a full restoration, so it may be that the engine and transmission will need to receive some attention before the GTA is mobile once again.

When it was new, this ’67 Mustang would have been a car that commanded plenty of respect on the roads due to the performance that it was capable of. Today, it is a shadow of its former self. There is no doubt that a full restoration could be completed, and the end result would be a pretty stunning and potent car. It will require a dedicated individual to complete, so is that person likely to be you?

    17k for a vin plate and an old engine block. This is normal for today’s market. These 67 fastbacks bring the cash!

    Bullitt clone anyone? This would be the
    car to do it with. Since you have to rebuild
    everything anyway, you could build your
    own clone for far less than the original car which is expected to fetch at least
    10 million dollars or more at auction next
    month. Then, all you need is a 440 Charger to complete the set.

    Beater old Mustang that was once a sweet looking car. I’m thinking this car would never break the 15 second mark in the quarter mile, not stock with those gears. Built, of course it could but that’s just not the same. Not that it matters.
    Since it’s blue I’m thinking a tribute car from the old Jeff Bridges moonshine movie Hard Driver(aka last American hero.)

    Trunk pan is pretty easy to replace, it’s the top of the gas tank.

    This is a unibody and the floors are part of the car’s structure. A full floor pan should do the trick but the rust you can’t see is the real issue. This one would need to be inspected before I would even consider it. When this fastback is completely restored, it will be a real beauty. I really like the color combo on this one.
