1967 Ford Mustang Sport Sprint
From the 1967 Mustang advertising, bred first... to be first. Then
going on to list various features and at the end that say, and I
quote "Smitten? Great! I now pronounce you man and Mustang?"
For consignment, a 1967 Mustang Sport Sprint in hardtop form which
was basically an entry level sport options package which included
hood vents, recessed turn signals, white wall tires, full wheel
covers, bright metal rocker panel moldings, chrome air cleaner, and
vinyl covered shift handle if an automatic transmission was
ordered. Early in 1967 the Sport Sprint package was only offered on
the hardtop body style, but by June 1967 the convertible was
included. This particular car is a 3-owner example and retains its
original window sticker, 2 build sheets and even the original
Bathed in a very nicely applied Frost Turquoise, straight steel
abounds. Gaps are consistent and straight. The iconic hockey stick
cove is present in the rear quarters, and it flows into the doors.
From the front bumper, grille galloping horse, window and roof
trimmings, and rocker trim all chrome is very nice with no dimpling
or dulling. For 1967 the styling becomes slightly more aggressive
on a simpler grille and deeper headlights, and on the back the
former outward V shaped sergeant stripe taillights have now been
inverted to inward, but still using 6 individual lights. Original
wheels are clad in the correct factory wheel covers and are wrapped
in like new red stripe FR70-14 rubber. A black vinyl top in near
showroom condition is the dollop of whipped cream on top if you
Jet black bounces all around this interior. The textured steel door
panels are painted black for the uppers and lowers, and vinyl
covered black are panels in the middle with just a touch of chrome
trim surround. Front buckets continue with black horizontal
stitched inner panels, and smooth black bolsters. This continues
into the back seat bench. The buckets flank the center hump with
the chrome handled T-shifter sans its vinyl wrapping. A dual
squared off eyebrow design is reserved for the dash top and this
plays in black and is above more black painted metal on the bottom
of the dash. The chrome heater slides are to the driver's left and
we can note the original instrument cluster, and steering wheel
dead center. Front and center in the dash is the original AM radio
along with an added reverb unit below. Black carpeting in good
condition floods all the floors and is protected by black rubber
mats with the iconic horse logo and some snappy white stripes. The
headliner is nice and tight black vinyl. Looking way back into the
trunk we see very good condition square plaid vinyl lining
throughout looking like new.
Under the pristine hood, in the clean and tidy engine bay, is a
289ci V8. Bathed in its Ford blue glory, this mill is topped with a
2bbl carburetor lurking under the chrome lid of the blue air
cleaner assembly. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission is in back
with a Ford 8-inch 2.79 rear axle. We note power steering is on to
make the drive easier and for reliability our consignor has
installed new belts and hoses.
A slight coating of surface rust is seen on some usual suspects,
but structurally rust free for the unibody, floor pans and rockers.
Patina is on the black painted surfaces, and all is looking good.
Drum brakes are seen on all 4 corners and a stock style single
exhaust system handles the exhale of spent fossils. Providing the
Mustang signature ride is an independent coil sprung front
suspension that works along with a leaf spring arrangement in the
This car fired right up, and after a bit of a warm up period, ran
very smoothly, drove beautifully, and had good acceleration and
handling. It is a good highway cruiser as well. It is also noted it
has a nice engine sound emanating from the exhaust.
An older survivor example still maintaining its luster, sporty
interior, and smooth-running power plant. Very nice paint, the
rarely seen Sport Sprint package, sporty wheel covers with red
stripe tires, and shiny chrome and trim. I feel we will be together
at least until death do us part.
