Shed Find: 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible

When the seller acquired this Ford Mustang 20 years ago, his goal was to restore it. But other priorities came along – and the next thing you know – two decades have come and gone. The car has been calling this shed home all this time and the seller has decided it’s time to pass it along to someone who can finish the job. Located in Grasonville, Maryland, this convertible is available here on Barn Finds Classifieds for $2,800.

The Ford Mustang has been in continuous production ever since its debut in 1964. Ford executives thought they might sell 100,000 copies in the first year. 2 ½ years later, more 1.2 million of the cars had left Ford’s factories. So, to say it was a success is an understatement. By 1967, competition was entering the pony car space and it was time to give the Mustang a facelift from the greenhouse down. The car would get a little longer and wider but there was no mistaking it for a ‘Stang. For 1967, overall sales were off a bit, but Ford had Chevy and Pontiac to deal with. 38,751 “standard” Mustang convertibles were built that year, which we believe fits the seller’s car.

Like all other 1967 automobiles, the Mustang gained some new safety features compliments of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These included an energy-absorbing steering column and wheel, 4-way emergency flashers, dual-circuit hydraulic braking system, and softer interior knobs. The seller tells us that he doesn’t recall what kind of power can be found under the hood of this car. Given that this looks to be a standard Mustang, the likely culprits are the 200 cubic inch I6 (120 hp), 289 V8 2-barrel (200 hp) or 289 V8 4-barrel (225 hp). There were two more choices, but those were considered performance engines.

This Mustang has 20 years of dirt and grime all over it, so we can’t really gauge how good the body and white paint really are. But it’s possible that rust has not been able to encroach on this car as long as it has remained indoors. The convertible top has parts of the canvas missing, so that means the interior has been exposed to Mother Nature. The only thing we can say about the interior is that the passenger side seat bottom may be damaged, or something is just sitting on it. If this Mustang is calling out to you, why not message the seller and see if you can get more information.

    I restored a rustang almost two decades back. This one is in much better shape.

    Mustang parts are dirt cheap for interior and tops and metal…

    Get the vert folding glass rear and save some later streaking potential.

    This engine mystery is interesting.
    If a 289 / 302 rebuild.
    If not drop a Coyote engine under it .

    I’d post my pixs but alas not allowed but no worries.
    Imagine a 67 mystic blue white vert too with black interior and a shelby trunk lid and tail light and side Scoops. I have a nom 289 Windsor and 500 wheels. A lil mod but with Shelby GT 500 at 150 to 200 who cares as its mine to car show and take out and drive like i stole if i want.😉

    I see this as a fun project to restore as a blank canvas.

    Interesting, I’m sure its sold by now given the low price, but you would want to be certain its not too far gone, and dont forget the inner rocker disease that will break it in half. Yep a rustang. Good luck and stay safe.

    It has factory air conditioning, so I’m guessing a 289 V8
