The search began two years ago with some hesitation about whether to go with a ’67 or ’68 Mustang, both of which are fantastic cars. The two are similar in form, but the ’67 has that brushed aluminum interior while the ’68 is wood paneled. The ’68 also features an exterior side scoop style that looks great, so we searched for and found a ’67 and modified to add the same side scoop aspect we liked so much.
Our '67 came with the original 289 engine which was switched out for the 302. It sounds amazing – with that throaty metallic purr, an aspect that somehow feels so significant when you're behind the wheel.
Overall, it’s a sporty, pony car, a little bit smaller than the usual muscle car, so for practical purposes, a great size for UK roads. The brakes on the front are upgraded to disk brakes for added safety but pretty much everything else is as stock. No power steering because it feels so much better having a true grasp on this beauty out on the road.
The dash on the ’67 is the same on both sides, which makes switching to right hand drive more seamless.
The car is all black and chrome inside and out. It looks great from the front with the simplistic style so we decided to go with the grill. We love the back of the car especially with the styling on the lights. To us this is by far the coolest of all the Mustang generations, which makes it hands down the finest Pony car in the world.
Parts are surprisingly easy to get - so as ‘classic car’ projects go, this one proved quite practical.
