1967 Ford Mustang Convertible
Body Style: Convertible
Exterior Color: Red
Interior Color: Black
Outside of the infamous Shelby Mustangs, there aren’t many Ford cars that are more desirable than a 1967 Mustang convertible with a 289 and a automatic trans, which is exactly what we have here. This car has been restored and detailed to a very high daily driver standard, and is ready to show, drive, and enjoy today. Only 38,751 Mustang convertibles were built in 1967. If you think this is a lot of money for a Mustang, just wait a few years these cars are gaining value and not many will appreciate as fast as a Mustang convertible. Buy now or regret it later, and don’t say I didn’t warn you!

The body on this ragtop is in excellent condition, having been fully restored a several years ago. The body received extensive work to get it this straight and clean, and panel alignment is very, very good. The Red is now a 2-stage urethane instead of the old single stage enamel, and it shines better than the original ever did. There has been some expert sheet metal work, but the repairs are invisible throughout. Look at the photos again and check out the shut lines on those doors, – there’s no sagging, no sign of fatigue in the rockers, nothing. This car was restored and has been driven only on nice sunny days since its completion. There are no ripples, no waves, just flat, straight sheet metal everywhere you look.
The chrome and trim on this car were also restored or replaced during the restoration, and everything is in first-rate shape today. The bumpers have to be new, since they are completely wave-free. The stainless has been buffed to look like the best chrome. There are some signs of age in the bright work, but they are very, very slight and could easily be remedied. Glass is intact all around, while all the lenses and other trim pieces are very nice.
The engine compartment in this 67 convertible is as the factory made it. The owner chose not to have the engine bay restored, so it is seen here in its original state. (The car looks better with the hood closed anyways! Right?) The engine runs great and always turns over quickly... even after sitting through the long winter months in storage. So in this one area, we have left you - the new owner - the opportunity where you can get your hands dirty and make improvements, enjoy a quick little project, and add some value to it yourself.
The transmission is a Ford automatic, makes for driving around in town a breeze. The standard bucket seat interior is in nice shape. The seat covers, the door panels are in great condition too. and newer carpeting is on the floors which cover the new floor pans that were installed professionally about 3 years ago here at Custom Classics. The dash and gauges are also in nice shape as you can see in the pictures. The radio works properly, as does the heater. Overhead, the convertible top is in real good shape. The plastic rear window is in good shape too as you can see.
This is a great little convertible that’s priced below many of the others on the market today. With the convertible season upon us, and the perfect fall weather to look forward to, what a great car to add to your collection. Whether this is your first collector car or you have many cars in your collection, having this beautiful red 1967 Mustang in your corral will be an enjoyable experience every time you open the garage door.
