The 1967 Mustang brought the first major redesign. Although it was longer and wider, the Mustang kept the same wheel base of 108 inches. The grille opening was made larger to give the Mustang a meaner look as the rear taillight panel was concave. The fastback now reached all the way to the rear of the trunk, and on all three models you could find simulated panel scoops on the rear quarters.
Optional front disc brakes came with power assist, and the '67 Mustang was the first vehicle to use a dual hydraulic system. The front suspension was also redesigned and widened to give the car an overall smoother ride.
One new engine was added to the line up, the first Mustang big block, the 390ci. Rated at 320hp, the 390 used a single 600cfm Holley four-barrel carburetor with cast iron intake and manifolds.
All Mustangs containing the 390 had a dual exhaust system. A total of
28,800 Mustangs with the 390 engine were produced. Only 472 Mustangs
were built with the 289 V-8, as the GT Equipment Group option was mandatory
with the 271hp 289.
The GT Equipment Group included the grille
mounted fog lamps, power front disc brakes, dual exhausts with chrome quad
outlets which were excluded on the 289hp 289, GT gas cap, F70x14 tires,
handling package, rocker panel stripes, and GT or GTA (for auto transmission
equipped GTs) emblems. 24,079 Mustangs had the GT option.
Only with the GT Group was the Competition
Handling Package available which consisted of firmer suspension components,
limited slip rear axle and fifteen-inch wheels with wire wheel covers.
The interior on the '67 Mustang was
redesigned. A new dash was added, which had the Rally-Pac and also
integral air conditioning. Two new options were the tilt-away steering
wheel and fold-down rear seat on the fastback model. Also added to the
option list included cruise control, a folding glass rear window on the
convertibles and an Exterior Decor group including a hood with rear-facing
louvers that contained turn signal indicators, wheelwell moldings as well as a
pop-open gas cap. The galloping Pony inserts were not included in
the Interior Decor Group option.
The standard wheel covers on the '67 was a 10½ inch hubcap or a 21-spoke
wheel cover. The optional styled steel wheel were wider with a wider
trim ring and had a blue center cap
Continuing from the previous Mustangs was a long list of dealer-installed
options which included the Cobra kits.
