Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA

Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA It’s a one-of-one optioned vehicle to boot. You read that right. This is a one-of-one 1967 Ford Mustang GTA convertible with the Marti report to back it up. It’s a super rare find and is currently for sale through Shelton Classics in North Carolina for $34,995. It has just 2,182 original miles on the odometer, which means this unique example has its entire life ahead of it. Although most of the first-gen Mustangs featured most of the same design elements, each year received some slight upgrades.

All muscle-car-era Mopars bring a lot of attention at auctions, but the 'Cuda is perhaps one of the best. While the big-block and Hemi 'Cudas are by far the most desirable, examples like this 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda convertible with the 340 V8 are a more cost-effective way experience the rarity of a 'Cuda without having to empty your bank account. How much this one goes for will be determined on Saturday, November 9 as it crosses the GAA Classic Cars auction block.

Painted in the high-impact Lemon Twist Yellow color, this '70 'Cuda would stand out anywhere, but this car is even more rare being a convertible with the 340 CID V8 with a four-barrel carb and the three-speed automatic. Of the 548 'Cuda convertibles produced in 1970, only 155 were said to have come from the factory with this combination. This 275 horsepower engine had the lowest rating of the available 'Cuda engines, and that's also why this model is more affordable. At the end of the day, it's still rare, it's still a 'Cuda and it's still convertible.

The  'Cuda, of course, was the sportiest offering of the Barracuda lineup, and it is distinguishable by the "BS" to start the VIN. In 1970, Plymouth produced almost many 'Cuda coupes as it did the standard Barracuda coupes, but the convertible versions of the 'Cuda and Barracuda Gran Coupe were produced in very low numbers.

What really makes the 1970 Barracuda lineup so special is that it was intended as Plymouth's economy car of that time. Thanks to cool styling, low production and the availability of some high-output engine options, these Barracudas are some of the coolest cars to emerge from the early 1970s.

This rare '70 'Cuda convertible will be up for auction during GAA Classic Cars' upcoming November 7-9 auction, and if you want to have the chance to buy this car or more than 600 other cars, be sure to register to bid by clicking HERE.

This is a great reason why kids should learn to fix vehicles. The video below tells the interesting story of how Juan Ramirez was able to stay on the straight and narrow by focusing on his goal of restoring his dream car. We all have that one car which fascinated us as a child or teenager, maybe for reasons we can’t quite explain. For Ramirez it was his friend’s older brother’s black convertible Chevy Impala. It was a beautiful vehicle that made the young Ramirez want to work hard and get one of his own.
