1967 Ford Mustang Coupe 289ci (4.7 litre) from UK and Ireland
A must have modern classic
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!!
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.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

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!
