1967 Ford Mustang Coupe 289ci (4.7 litre) from UK and Ireland

Summary:

A must have modern classic

Faults:

Snapped strut rod - had to get a new part made as apparently they "Don't break". Wasn't expensive, but took 3 weeks.

Original carpets are worn, but still in good condition for age.

4 drum brakes won't stop you very quickly!!

General Comments:

This car is fantastic. The '67 really took the mustang to iconic status, the lines are more aggressive than the 65 and 66 models however everything els is much the same.

The 289ci engine (4.7 litres) is nice and torquey and gets you off the line quickly and will sit at 90 on the motorway at about 2500 to 3000 revs.

The C4 automatic gearbox is still solid and doesn't clunk.

The mechanics on these cars are pretty much bullet-proof, at 100000 miles the engine has only just bedded in and there are no major leaks or faults. The gearbox is sweet and the rear axle is solid.

These cars are incredibly easy to work on because they are mechanically simple and there is so much space under the bonnet.

The steering is very light and the handling is much better than expected however combined with rear wheel drive and old brakes it does require that you change your driving style accordingly.

I also have a 1967 mustang that I am going to fix up for a project. it's only got a 200 cid straight six. but I agree with you when you said these were bulletproof. and you have good taste because it's a ford!

You Both have good taste picking this car. I recently got one from a rich kid at school. He gave me the 67 mustang for free and it runs. Needs paint and intereior work, but other wise the engine rocks, at 145 000 Kms its killer, Ford all the way!

1967 Ford Mustang Coupe 200 sport sprint from North America

Summary:

Great car for my senior year

Faults:

About once a year I had to take the head off and replace a couple of push rods and lifters - somehow they were bent. Other than that, just normal maintenance.

General Comments:

Loved the car - it looked good and ran well. The main problem was that somebody had taken out the rust over the rear quarters and filled them with bondo.

1967 Ford Mustang Convertible 289 cu in. from Mexico

Faults:

Well, it is an old classic car, but still powerful.

It is a little uncomfortable, you know is a two door car.

The convertible gaskets and the suspension fail a little.

Most of these models get rusted, depends on the care you take of the car.

If you have one Rust is the #1 enemy.

General Comments:

Excellent car, very handsome guy and powerful too.
