GT350 Convertible Tribute
This cool blue 1967 Ford Mustang convertible is the very definition of summertime fun. Looking like a GT350 convertible (if Shelby had built such a thing in 1967), it offers a great color combination, spotless interior, strong-running 289, and the promise of adventure. And being a V8 Mustang, it makes for one of the world's great motoring pleasures and a car not to be missed.
Recently painted, this cool GT350 ragtop looks good from any angle. They probably started with a clean, straight car because the gaps are great and three's none of the irregular fit that you get on a Mustang that's lived a hard life. The finish has a nice shine that will get attention out on the road, and if you're into shows, you can really detail it up to look great. Details are correct, including the twin-nostril hood, the white stripes on the rockers, the Shelby emblems on the fenders, and the scoops in the quarter panels, so nobody's going to mistake this for anything else. Bright bumpers appear to be freshly chromed or very nice replacement pieces and classic 3-element taillights make it easy to identify from behind. If you can't spot a vintage Mustang at 50 yards, you're just not an old car fan.
The handsome black bucket seat interior is a wonderful contrast to the blue paint, and is probably the way Ol' Shel would have wanted it. The standard buckets were reupholstered and the vinyl upholstery is durable and stylish, so it'll last for years. Door panels look almost new and the carpets are in good shape without having that faded look that happens in some convertibles. A 3-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel has a very Shelby-like look and there's a modern AM/FM stereo radio in the center of the dash with speakers in the usual places. The shifter for the automatic transmission sits right there on the top of the console, which also incorporates the unique "garage" storage bin up front. The black power convertible top is in good shape with a plastic rear window, and the trunk includes a correct mat for a finished look.
The C-code 289 cubic inch V8 is a strong runner with a torquey demeanor that makes this Mustang a blast to run through the gears. With fresh Ford Blue paint on the block, it looks exactly right and someone obviously spent a lot of money here. It runs beautifully with a big dose of low-end torque and a willingness to rev, while the 2-barrel carb remains so it's relatively thrifty, too. You'll also be happy to see that this car includes power steering, which makes a huge difference in the way it feels going down the road and handling in tight spots. There's a great-sounding dual exhaust system with OEM-style mufflers and chrome tips just below the rear bumper, so it sounds like a flashy Mustang should. Reproduction Shelby alloy wheels give it a very Shelby look that helps complete the illusion, and it sits on a set of 205/65/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials that fill the fenders quite nicely.
Affordably priced, this convertible has the look and feel that you've been looking for in this summer's toy. Call today!
