Though the first-generation Mustang kept the same general design for many years, each year received slight updates gradually creating a more and more aggressive look. The 1967 Mustang is undoubtedly the first year that these changes start to become very apparent, and boy do these '67s look nice! They aren't quite as aggressive-looking as a 1969 but aren't as tame in appearance as 1965 either. This particular 1967 Mustang convertible is a rare bird, being that it is a factory GTA Mustang complete with a full Marti report verifying it as a true one-of-one car.
Believe it or not, this Mustang has never been restored! Though it has received a repaint and new convertible top, as age would dictate, this vehicle has never seen a full restoration and is in largely original condition. Both the top and paint show some aging, but are in good condition and ready to be enjoyed. While restored cars are as wonderful as they come, there's just a different feeling behind the wheel of an original car that has been maintained rather than battered and brought back to life. The exterior of this Mustang is clean and straight, with no obvious questionable repairs or damage. It appears to be all original sheet metal, which eliminates the sneaky nature of poorly performed patch panels. It would be quite a challenge to find a Mustang this solid with original metal, let alone a convertible still wearing its original floorpans! This car is as solid as they come, and an excellent piece for a Mustang collector looking for something both affordable and extremely unique.
You read it correctly above; this Mustang is a Marti verified one-of-one optioned vehicle. While it comes down to some very specific options that make it so, there was no other Mustang GTA convertible produced with the same colors and options as this car. The interior appears all original and unmolested aside from replacement carpet; another item that was replaced due to age and wear rather than the sake of restoration. The seats appear to have never been recovered, which really adds to the originality of this specimen. Overall, the interior is in excellent condition for an unrestored car and is more than nice enough to be enjoyed as-is. While some areas may be showing some age, that is exactly what can be expected in a well-preserved original car.
This Mustang still has what is believed to be all of its original drivetrain, including the Ford 289 V8 under the hood. It runs just as it should, with no hesitation, smoke, or odd noises. Hooked up to the 289 is a Ford C4 3-speed automatic transmission; hence the 'A' in GT A. This car drives exactly how an unmodified 1967 Mustang should drive, and again it just has a different feel than restored cars do. It is a pleasure to cruise this car with the top down!
Given the overall originality combined with the impressive Marti report, this Mustang GT A is a collector's item without a doubt. Whether you've been searching for one for years, or you're just after something a little more unique to add to you collection, this Mustang is the one to have! This is a turn-key survivor that needs nothing but a new home. Add it to your fleet today!
