Having been stripped down to bare metal before being treated to a full repaint, this 1967 Ford Mustang V8 Notchback is a certified eye-catcher. Glossy jet black coachwork contrasts sophisticatedly with a rich red leather interior. This example’s previous owner has spared no expense in restoring this ‘60s icon.
After discovering that the previous engine block was not period correct, the right ’67-manufactured 289 block was sourced and fitted with a new 4-barrel carburettor, performance intake manifold, headers and Flowmaster exhaust.
The 1967 Ford Mustang V8 Notchback still uses its original 4-speed Toploader manual gearbox but has received further drivetrain upgrades including Total Control powered rack and steering system, Mike Maier MOD 1 suspension, new brakes and Magnum wheels with Goodrich Radial TA tyres.
Inside this masterpiece you’ll find an Autosound retro-style radio, fresh upholstery and carpets as well as upgrades for reliability including an aluminium radiator with twin electric fans, new alternator, new racing starter motor and a new fuel tank.
Although this Ford Mustang V8 Notchback is not in full original condition, its upgrades have been done skilfully and respectfully, not changing the overall aesthetic of the example. If anything, the upgrades have enhanced this piece of motoring history, offering unprecedented power and a whole lot of noise. This is a rare example of one of Ford’s most timeless Mustang variants.
