This is no ordinary Mustang convertible, this is an ultra rare 1967 Mustang Convertible with the optional 390 big block V8. Very few Mustangs had this combination of desirable options. Total production of standard interior convertibles for 1967 was 38,751. Now understand that only about 6% of all Mustangs received the “S” Code 390cid engine, only 8% of those were convertibles.
The S-Code 390 was advertised as 320 HP with a four barrel carb. This Mustang was also optioned with the C6 automatic as well as the 3.00 rear axle. The engine pulls strong throughout the rev range and sounds healthy. The transmission shifts smoothly and will chip second gear easily under hard acceleration. Other performance options include heavy duty suspension components, power front disc brakes, power steering, and dual exhaust.
This Mustang is fitted with a number of rare options include an all glass rear window, a fully functional power folding top, and the “Interior Decor Option” which included upgraded door panels with arm rests and horizontal metal trim, metal trim on foot petals, brushed aluminum center stack and center console, and an electric clock. This Mustang has been retrofitted with the GT Equipment Group consists of grille-mounted fog lights and GT gas-cap emblems. This car was also retrofitted with the “Selectair Air Conditioner.” The A/C is fully functional and has been upgraded to use modern 134-A. It was produced September 20th, 1966 and was delivered to a dealer in Santa Clara, California.
This Mustang is painted Vintage Burgundy with the standard black interior. The paint is from an older restoration, but still presents well. Originally the car was gold with a white top. The interior is in very good condition with no major defects except for a non-original radio. Underneath, the car looks solid with only minor surface rust. New floor panels were replaced overtop the originals. This car spent most of its life in the south and was kept in a heated garage so it’s been well preserved.
Overall, this is a very solid driver quality car that looks, sounds, and drives well. See the Marti Report in the pictures for more detailed build and statistic information. This vehicle is held on consignment and is not owned by Fort Pitt Classic Cars.
