1967 Ford Mustang GTA Fastback Restomod With 271-horsepower from a 4.7-liter quad-barrel Windsor V8, and backed by a beefed-up three-speed automatic transmission, this pony car is more of a boulevard cruiser rather than a quarter-mile missile. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); 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.

This is how epic projects start!

Are you looking for an engine swap candidate? Looking for something to restore? Want to build a wild SEMA-worthy car? This is your chance to move forward with those plans! For any handy gearhead, this 1967 Mustang is an exciting site. When you look at a car in this condition, you have to consider what it could be, not what it is.

Up for grabs from Classic Auto Mall, this classic Mustang, described as a ‘barn find’, is looking for a new owner. The current owner wanted to complete the restoration to give his wife the car of her dreams - but like it goes so many times, time got the best of the well-intentioned gearhead.

This 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Restomod Is A Drool Inducer

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 Mustang didn’t sit without any work done, however, the current owner got it ready for paint to begin the heavy lifting of the restoration, but that never happened. It was prepped ahead of time with new undercarriage parts and the body was sanded, filled, and smoothed.

Originally, this Mustang was painted Dark Moss (green), and now it’s mostly bare metal, so it can be restored to the original paint code color, or repainted to a new color with minimal stripping of the coat. Included with the Pony Car is a ‘pile of extra parts’, although there’s no word on what’s included in this inventory of leftovers.

The interior is in need of a lot of love - it likely needs a total restoration. There’s a 302 cubic inch V8 engine in the engine bay, but it’s currently unknown if it runs, or if it could run. There’s a three-speed automatic transmission backing the engine - again, there’s no knowing the potential of the transmission.
