The original Mustang was exactly the right car at the right time and consequently this ‘sports car for the masses’ sold a million in less than two years. The secret of the Mustang's success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Available as a Notchback Coupe, Convertible or, from 1965, as Fastback Coupe and the array of trim and engine options meant that there was a ‘Stang' to satisfy everyone. The fastback Coupe is an effortlessly cool shape and is the Mustang profile that people default to in their mind’s eye. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder economy to V8-powered luxury, whilst customers could choose from an extensive range of factory options with the result that seldom are two Mustangs identical. A natural progression from customers using the options list to create something totally bespoke was for automotive tuners and customisers to go even further and offer a huge range of further enhancements to make your individual Mustang even more individual.
This sparkling silver 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback is no ordinary example. Starting life as a much sought-after GT Fastback, it has benefitted from the most thorough professional restoration/enhancement program carried out just 2,000 miles ago in the US by specialists 'Livernois Motorsports' of Michigan who, in the past, have been entrusted to prepare a car for Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Choppers, a man whose insistence on perfection is legendary.
It's fitted with a mighty 347 Ci, ‘crated’ (rebuilt/enhanced/tested by specialists) V8 engine, which is at the heart of this impressive machine. To keep everything in balance are Brembo brakes, AirPod adjustable suspension, power steering and a full geometry reset, all carried out to an extremely high standard. In terms of creature comforts, it's fitted with air conditioning and a very expensive and impressive ICE system, totally in keeping with such a statement car. This is not one for the shy and retiring and represents a lot of car (and fun!) for what will be a very tempting guide.
