The Ford Mustang was conceived in the full knowledge that in the mid 1960’s the biggest population bubble in history was now coming of age in America, ‘baby boomers’ would rule the 1960’s and there was little or no reason to think they wanted to drive cars that were anything like the ones their parents owned.
The iconic Ford Mustang, therefore, created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable and consequently it needed to share much of its engineering with an existing Ford product. They decided to base the Mustang on the smallest US Ford at the time, the Falcon. The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘notchback’ coupé or convertible. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon. Compared to the Falcon the cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front end and shorter rear end design, both its roof and bonnet were also lower in comparison. It’s with those proportions, and detailed with such iconic touches such as the galloping horse in the grille, the cut-away side panels and the rear lights divided into three sections, that the Mustang became a car that people were instantly passionate about.
This beautiful ‘67 Mustang Convertible enjoyed a comprehensive restoration in the United States during 2017, with a thorough mechanical overhaul and more recently preparation for European road use. The ‘Stang benefits from uprated Shelby-look wheels with new tyres, lending it a real muscle car look.
Offered with a US title and taxes paid, and fresh German TÜV, this wild horse is ready to hit the road!
