Lot 302 - 1967 Ford Mustang Coupé
|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
|Result||Sold - £18,480|
The Ford Mustang is an American icon and was originally based on the Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with revised models still in production today after 50 years. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. By 1969, the muscle car race was on and Ford offered a 351, 428 Cobra jet and other performance engines in most models, although often ordered with the Fastback and Mach One cars. The '69 Boss 302 and Shelby (available since 1965), were speciality Mustangs offered with both high performance engines and race-breed suspensions.
This lovely Mustang Coupé has benefitted from considerable refurbishment in some areas but remains substantially original in others. The car has a rebuilt 289cu, V8 engine which is mated to a C4 automatic gearbox, the suspension and brakes are all new and the car is equipped with disc brakes all-round. Finished in Rangoon Red with red interior, it sits on a set of 15'' Mustang alloy road wheels and relatively new tyres. Imported from Texas recently, this Mustang starts first time and runs superbly. This is a very sound example of a 48 year old Mustang and is ready to be enjoyed immediately. We are advised this car will be presented with a new MoT test certificate.
Interested parties should note that the actual car has different alloy wheels to those shown in the photographs.
