This 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Restomod Is A Drool Inducer With 600-horsepower from a 428 cubic-inch V8 bolted to a Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission, this 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Restomod is not only a drool inducer, but it is also one heck of a tire melter as well. When Ford introduced the Fastback variant of the Mustang in September 1964 as a '65 model, it became one of the most iconic body styles in automotive history. The Mustang Fastback was also the foundation for the two most iconic hero cars on the big screen, Steve McQueen's Bullitt, and Nicolas Cage's Eleanor is the 2000 remake of Gone In Sixty Seconds.

The first-generation Ford Mustang received its first major redesign in 1967 and a two-door fastback variant was added to the lineup which already consisted of the standard two-door coupe and convertible.

The overall size, interior, and cargo space were increased in 1967. But the major mechanical change in the new ‘Stang was its ability to be fitted with a big-block V8 engine. Depending on the engine option selected, the 1967 Mustang made anywhere from a measly 120-horsepower from a single-barrel 3.3-liter Thrift power inline-six to a quarter-mile crushing 320-hp from a quad-barrel 6.4-liter FE V8.
