67 MUSTANG HT

Description

The Ford Mustang is an American automobile, originally based on the Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964, and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on April 17, 1964, and via all three American television networks on April 19. It was one of the most successful product launch in automotive history.

The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market.. The Mustang remains in production today after 43 years and several revisions.

Assembly: Metuchen, NJ

 

In its first two years of production, three Ford Motor Company plants in San Jose, California; Dearborn, Michigan; and Metuchen, New Jersey produced nearly 1.5 million Mustangs, a record unequalled before or since. The Metuchen facility continued to produce Mustangs for the entire first generation run.

 

Body: Mustang

 

1967 represented the first redesign for Mustang. The front grille kept the running pony in the corral, but vertical and horizontal bars returned, and the grille opening was enlarged. The side scoops, though non-functional, were designed as two smaller scoops with inlets and were painted the body color. Despite the body style change, coupes, fastbacks, and convertibles were still offered, but the fastback in 1967 extended fully to the rear, giving the car a beefier look than the shorter fastbacks used in 1965 and 1966.

This was the first year the convertible model featured a two-pane glass rear window that folded down with the roof. It was also the last year of the 289 Hi-Po, but the first year for the 320-hp 390cid 4V V-8 and a 428cid engine used in the Shelby G.T. 500. The 1967 GT390 Fastback is my favorite Mustang. I want a blue one.

1967 was the only year for the GTA, which was a Mustang GT with an automatic transmission. They were available in coupe, fastback, or convertible and with either the 289 or 390 engine.

 

Engine: 8 Cyl. 289 CID

 

At introduction, the 289 CID two-barrel engine shared the spotlight with the 260 CID F-Code but offered an additional 46 HP and 29 CID. This over-bored version of the 260 generated 210 HP. Early production V-8 engines were equipped with generators instead of alternators.
