The 1967 Mustang
A host of changes were revealed by Ford, when they introduced the 1967 Mustang.
Although the original pony car shape that Ford pioneered remained, there were significant styling and some significant performance changes.
Major restyling was evident in the new muscular looking sheet metal. An aggressive nose, wider grille and a restyled hood with reversed sunken intake scoops which added to the powerful look.
The fastback also received a change, with designers bringing the sweeping lines well back and integrating them into the new rear trunk lid.
The rear tail light area received a concave look, with three new curve following separated tail lights per side.
And color keyed side scoops graced the new body styling.
Not as easily seen, was the additional 2.5 inches of increased width and an increase of 2 inches to the length of this new model year.
Engine And Under hood:
The engine compartment grew to be able to swallow up Ford's new Mustang performance motor. This huge 390 cubic inch, big block motor pumped out 320 horsepower and gobs of torque.
This ground shaker was Ford's answer to the big block Camaro and bragging rights for king of the hill.
The other engine choices for 1967 included the 120 horsepower 200 cubic inch inline 6, and three 289 V8 engines, producing 200,225, and 271 horsepower respectively.
The dash was simplified with round well spread out instruments. A new overhead console was an option and the seat cushions resembled the original 1965 looks.
Evidence of the coming government mandated safety measures were evident in the cinnamon bun shaped padded horn button.
