Topper Find! 1967 Ford Mustang

I’m kidding about topper-find, of course, and there’s no word on whether the topper goes with the sale of this 1967 Ford Mustang parts car. When this car isn’t trying to hide under a topper, it can be found here on eBay in Salinas, California. There is a single bid of $500.

Is this a convertible? It’s hard for me to tell and there isn’t much of a description of this car. I’m assuming that it’s a convertible and the topper was put on there to try to keep most of the rain out, and maybe at the same time to unintentionally provide a nice, dry, sheltered habitat for all sorts of wild animals. Salinas gets less than half of the U.S. average annual rainfall at about 15-inches but you still don’t want 15-inches of water in your car. Any guesses as to what this one will sell for? There have to be more than $500 worth of parts on this car.

I always think that it’s a new phenomenon, but in the 1960s and probably earlier, car companies made their vehicles bigger, fatter, longer, wider, heavier, etc. with every redesign. It was the same with the ’67 Mustang which was 3-inches longer and 2-inches wider than the previous cars. The seller says that this car has no motor so it doesn’t run… and it had a V6. I’m assuming they meant inline-6 or V8 as there was no V6 in a Mustang until the second-gen Mustang II in 1974. Would you have a use for an engineless ’67 Mustang parts car? If I were restoring a ’67 or ’68 Mustang I sure would.

    Wouldn’t have to worry about mouse problems if this has become a cat condo…

    If it’s a convertible, it likely won’t be a parts car for the next owner. We’ve all seen worse rust bucket Mustangs brought back.

    A -pillar looks like a coupe. Hard to imagine there is any value in parts. Maybe worth something in scrap metal?

      Thanks, Maverick and Jeff. It looks like the seller added that additional info and two extra photos about an hour and a half ago after this post went live. It sure looks like a good deal to me.

    Four (4) lug wheels = inline six and the pictures do show it is a coupe.

    I don’t think it looks bad at all and in CA? I can’t see it being that bad. Wish there were more photos of the interior. It definitely was a straight 6 cylinder car from what I can see from the photos. If it was near me, I would bid on it.

    Awesome. We can all sell, donate beg convertible/ classic car owners to take the old truck caps rotting away in the back yard, to save old iron. Everybody wins…. I see an opportunity here…

    Maybe, not as bad as it looks! Could be resuscitated.

    Somewhere near Salinas lord, I let her slip away….

    I have never seen a Mustang with this topper option.

    Was it expensive ?

    This pony comes with its own barn.

    Trunk lid looks like the piece of burnt toast I made this morning. Crispy around the edges, white in the middle. Obviously the topper was not capable of preventing this odd accumulation of rust on a horizontal panel. Still, a Mustang for $800 aint anything to sneeze at……
