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. But all these changes were not done strictly to change the new Mustang's looks. The addition of Ford's big 390 cubic inch V8 engine in the little pony car's engine compartment necessitated changes 1967 mustang

Exterior changes:

The 1967 Mustang 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 cylinder engine with a not too impressive 1 barrel carburetor plus three 289 V8 engines.

These included a 2 barrel engine producing 200 horsepower, a four barrel engine with 225 horses and the very desireable and now extremely expensive optional high revving "k code" high compression engine which pumped out an impressive 271 horsepower.

Interior Changes:

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.

One of the nicest options available was the continuation of the transmission hump console for both standard and automatic transmissions.

Rare Optional Equipment

One of the most rare options on the 1967 Mustang was the availability of an overhead console, reminiscent of what one would see in an airplane cockpit.

While this option was rare as original equipment, it doesn't have to be in a restoration and many aftermarket reproduction Mustang parts companies have faithfully reproduced these parts, allowing you to add an overhead console to your car, or replace worn or missing pieces on your original console.
