SPRINGTIME YELLOW FASTBACK, CORRECT COLORS, MARTI REPORT, PS, PB, FRONT DISC
This is an amazing Mustang. One look at the photos will whet your appetite, but when you see the specifications and level of detail that went into the restoration of this gorgeous Springtime Yellow 1967 Mustang fastback, you'll have no choice but to agree.
The restoration is about five years old, but the workmanship was simply stunning and the car looks incredibly fresh. Refinished in the original code 8 Springtime Yellow, the crisp lines and straight panels are emphasized, not hidden, and it's rather rare, as only 65 Mustang fastbacks received Springtime Yellow paint and a saddle interior that year. The guys who painted this car wanted to show off a bit, so the workmanship is excellent, somehow giving the subtle color an aggressive edge simply by making it look so good. The current owner has owned it for more than 15 years, but it was always treated as something special, resulting in a very straight, complete, and flat-out impressive car. The clean, unadorned lines of the '67 were ideally made for monochromatic colors like this, showing off the crisply detailed body details like the sharp line that runs from the headlights to the rear quarter vents, and back around again. There's also no place for shoddy workmanship to hide, and you'll find that the gaps are uniform and the finish has been wet sanded and buffed to a brilliant shine. When it's done right, there aren't many colors that look better.
Mustang fans will fall in love with the equally unusual and surprisingly attractive interior. No, I wouldn't have picked the Saddle interior, either, but it totally works! With reproduction style seat covers up front and what appears to be original seats in back (yes, it's a fold-down seat), the interior is as dramatic as the exterior. The console comes complete with that unique "garage" storage compartment up front, and if there's any demerit to be found in this car, it's that the console itself is original and perhaps showing its age. The gauges are probably original and still show bright markings and clear lenses, and there's an AM/FM/cassette stereo for driving entertainment. Open the trunk and you'll find a fresh mat and a full-sized spare with cover.
The engine is a correct C-code 289 cubic inch V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor, nicely detailed and looking ready to rumble. Although there are a few easy-to-spot upgrades, including the big Holley carburetor, most of the equipment is vintage 1967. The block and heads wear correct Ford Blue paint, while the Cobra valve covers are the same ones you'd find on a Shelby GT350 with "Powered by Ford" embossed on their faces. Power steering and brakes make this one a pleasure to drive, along with the rebuilt C4 3-speed automatic and bulletproof 9-inch rear end set up for easy cruising thanks to the 2.79 gears found inside. Glasspack-style mufflers give it a wicked little snarl, and those Magnum 500 wheels will never go out of fashion.
Documented with a Marti Report, this is a fast and comfortable cruiser that's suddenly a red-hot collectable now that Shelbys are six-figure machines. Great taste never goes out of style, and this Mustang fastback is proof. Call today!
