Lot 224 - 1967 Ford Mustang GT390 Fastback
|Estimate||£32,000 - £38,000|
|Result||Sold - £32,480|
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 stunning Mustang Fastback GT390 has been owned and driven by a well respected enthusiastic vendor. The manual gearbox mated to a high performance engine combine to make this a very special Mustang. The condition of the car is excellent with the blue paintwork virtually unmarked, as is the black interior. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate, together with some service history, this Mustang Fastback is a very good example and one that drives, looks and sound superb.
