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.
