The Ford Mustang was conceived in the full knowledge that in the mid-’60s the biggest population bubble in history was now coming of age in America, ‘baby boomers’ would rule the ‘60s 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 wonderful 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is finished in the very period late 1960s combination of Lime Green Poly metallic paint with a white vinyl interior. The ‘Stang is powered by the lusty 4.7 litre, 200bhp motor with a rare and now desirable manual gearbox option. The Mustang has benefitted from light restoration works, and is now presented in very good condition. A great classic car for summer cruising, just fill with friends or family and take off for the day!
