It's as iconic a classic as you could possibly find -a first generation automotive legend that gave rise to its own class: the pony car. This 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is an undeniable head turner that's decked out in a great exterior shade you can't help but stare at - and having logged an unbelievably low 70,000 miles during its considerable lifetime, it's also a strong driver and comes along just in time for warmer weather.
With their unique combination of sports car sensibility and room for four, the first generation Mustangs, like this '67, caused quite a stir in the automotive market when they debuted. Sporty without taking things too far, compact but by no means cramped, Mustangs offered a driving experience unlike any of the domestic models to come before them. The vibrant red shade draped over this '67 really complements its form nicely - it was likely refreshed only a little while back and has a very strong shine that really comes alive in the sunlight. From the running horse taking its place on the front grille, back to the trim surrounding the tail light panel, the exterior bright work on this classic is in really good shape and the black striped decals above the rocker panels are a great added detail. You can't help but picture yourself behind the wheel taking in nice weather with just the sky above you, but should those skies darken, a white convertible top stands ready to protect you from the elements.
Inside the doors, the vinyl interior not only still sports the same black color this '67 began with but is likely the actual original interior. It's got a lot going for it - while you can see some subtle signs of use on the front bucket seats, you'll find no tears and the rear bench seat is really looking strong. Well-fitted and very clean black carpeting lines the floor and red steel now surrounds the black door panels to provide some nice contrast. The dash area is accented by brushed aluminum panels that blend with accents on the doors, while the gauges are encircled with red to match the steel on the doors. Below the factory-issue AM radio, a trio of aftermarket gauges has been added to keep close tabs on oil pressure, amperage and operating temperatures. Flip the side lever on one of the buckets to access the backseat area and you'll likely be surprised by how much legroom is on hand - classic Mustangs can accommodate full-size adults back there with no issues.
The 289 cubic inch V8 below the hood is a powerplant that's logged a little under 70,000 miles, is well-positioned for plenty more service - 289s have been renowned over the years for their durability and there's still quite a few of them on the road to this day. It's surrounded by a clean compartment - everything is in good order and just a little detailing will really make it a standout. Outfitted with a 4-barrel carb and a pair of Cobra valve covers, the engine is running strong and teams with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic C4 transmission to make for a very road-ready classic. Power steering makes for easy navigation, while power brakes bring this Mustang's set of 15” American Racing Torq Thrust wheels outfitted with Futura GLS Super Sport tires to easy, dependable stops.
