Facts About the 1967 Mustang

Ford 1967 Mustangs

Ford's 1967 Mustang received a new body, wider track, more divers rang of engines, and a long list of options. Ford offered a Tilt-Away steering wheel, built in heater/AC, overhead console, Stereo-Sonic tape system, automatic transmission, bench seats, AM/FM radio, speel ontril, and front power disc breadks.

At it's debute, many car enthusiasts claim that the 1967 Mustang was too big and too heavy. But, today, it is probably one of the more revered and sought after vintage cars.

The 67 Mustang did not receive the outcome that Ford had intended, but as you can see, the 67 Mustang models have stuck around. With the 2007 Mustangs, the designers tried to emulate the 67 Mustang ever so slightly.

Even in 1967, cars came with warranty plans, Ford Motor Company created a 3 point plan for ther 1967 Mustangs, which included:

  1. 5 year or 50,000-mile warranty on car power train, steering, and suspension.
  2. 2 year or 24,000-mile warranty on the entire car.
  3. Only one dealer certification per year regardless of how many miles you drive.

The Mustang Red Book by Peter C. Sessler was created to help the Mustang enthusiast to determine the authenticity and originalitiy of Mustang Models.

There are actually four different versions of the Red Book, each a little different from the last. Three of the more common Red Books include the second, third, and fourth editions.

  • Mustang Red Book 1964 1/2-2000 features Mustangs and Shelby Mustangs between the years 1964 1/2 and 2000.
  • Mustang Red Book features Mustang models through 2004.

Many people prefer to have all three editions (even four if you can find the fourth edition) of the Mustand Red Book.

The books not only helps you determine authenticity and originality the the modal sitting in your driveway, but it provides you with helpful facts about Mustand from the earliest model to the most current to the edition.

For exmple, the following facts are excerpts from Mustang Red Book 1964 1/2-2000.

  • The most important number in any Mustang is the VIN, or serial number, which from 1965-1980 is an 11-digit number that breaks down the model year, assembly plant, body code, engine code, and consecutive unit number.
  • Ford attached a stamped plate, usually under one of the coil hold-down bolts, supplying the engine information.
  • There is additional information such as the consecutive unit number and optional codes on a riveted underhood plate. Sometimes the location can vary by car model and year, but you may find it behind the headlights on the radiator support, near the right side hood hinge, or on the sides of the engine compartment.

I have a 67 289 A code convertible with a bench seat.

I know there were only 1209 convertibles made that year with a bench seat,but how many with a 289 4v or A code?

Thanks,

I have searched for years to find the information you have posted here regarding '67 Mustangs.

I have found 'the Man' regarding classic '67's finally. THANK YOU !

We have an original '67 convertible (yes, bought new).

I would love to find out just how many of our particular Mustang were built as ours is a larger 6 cyl.

Heard there were actually 2 different size 6 cyl. built.

Would love to know if that's true or not?
