It's highly unusual for Mustang coupes to get high-quality restorations these days. With the big block fastbacks and convertibles commanding the big bucks, it's no surprise that people are investing in top-notch restorations on those cars. That's what makes this 1967 Ford Mustang coupe so special-someone loved it so much that they didn't care how upside-down they would be when it was complete. Ultimately, that makes it a slam-dunk for you, the next owner. This wonderfully solid 289-powered air-conditioned coupe has been restored in its original code I Lime Gold. For many, Lime gold is one of those love it or hate it colors, and you're either in tune with the '60s vibe it delivers, or you're moving on to something in the red or black family. If you don't dig the Lime Gold, you can stop reading right now-this car isn't for you. OK, now that I'm only speaking to those of you who think part of a 1960s car's appeal is the 1960s color palette, let's talk about this absolutely wonderful pony car. As I said, this one has been very nicely restored to a level a lot of coupes just don't receive, and I think that's a good thing. Gaps are excellent, and as a clean southern car, it needed very little sheetmetal work to get it looking as good as it does. The two-stage urethane on it today does a very good impersonation of the original Lime Gold with a soft metallic glow that emphasizes the Mustang's details. Look how the crease that stretches back to the quarter panel vents is sharply defined, and how the hood scoops stand out against the background. Gaps are very good throughout the car, and there's a definite feeling that someone really cared when they put this one together. The chrome on the bumpers is very good, and the stainless got more than a few passes under the buffing wheel before being reinstalled. Emblems, the taillight lenses, and the corral grille up front are all fresh. Inside there's a standard code 2A black vinyl bucket seat interior, but Ford made sure that even the standard setup was stylish and comfortable. The seat covers are new, and their plump, firm feel suggests new foam underneath as well. There's also a new dash pad up top, but the gauges appear to be original and are only just showing their age today, 45 years later. There are new carpets on the floors and a new black headliner overhead, as well as fresh door panels acting as bookends to this well-restored interior. There's also an optional center console, which features what many enthusiasts call "the garage" which was a storage compartment at the leading edge with a slick, roll-up metal cover. It's a nice addition, even if you don't store anything but loose change in it. And yes, the A/C works, and the original dash with eyeball vents is proof that it's factory-installed. There's also a modern Clarion AM/FM/cassette stereo system in the original dash slot, and a combination of Alpine and Pioneer speakers throughout the car. The trunk is nicely finished as well, with a new mat, full-sized spare, and a modern scissor jack for safety. A Mustang needs eight cylinders, and this '67 coupe carries its original C code 289 cubic inch V8, which has been recently rebuilt. Featuring an .030-inch overbore, ported original heads, and a mild cam, the long block was built for the road. Up top, there's an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor which make a few extra horsepower compared to the original 2-barrel setup, and chrome valve covers add some much appreciated eye appeal. An original style air cleaner wears a correct 289 decal, and efforts were made to keep the engine bay close to original. It's dominated by the giant original A/C compressor, but you'll also find power brakes and power steering which make it a pleasure to drive. Adding to this car's luxury orientation, there's a code W C4 3-speed automatic underneath, driving a Ford 9-inch with 3.00 gears on a Track-Lok limited slip differential. The chassis is exceptionally well preserved-you can still see the original red oxide primer on the floors under the dealer-applied undercoating, and it's obvious that this car has never been rusty. A single exhaust system delivers quiet comfort entirely appropriate to this comfortable Mustang, and the power disc brakes have been fully rebuilt. It rolls on a set of unusual (for a coupe) styled steel GT wheels wearing 205/70/14 blackwall radials. If you're still reading, obviously you can appreciate how good this car looks. And even if you're not a Lime Gold fan, you got this far probably because you realized this is one heck of a nice car that's loaded with options. Pleasant to drive, lively on the road, and with everything fully sorted, this is the car you drive whenever weather permits and don't look back. Enjoy the fruits of someone else's labor on this one and call today!
