Car & Classic, the leading classic and specialist vehicle online auction platform will be offering a very interesting 1967 Mustang Fastback LHD starting tomorrow October 12. This is a low-mileage example of a 1967 Mustang Fastback LHD which has had only two owners since new.
With a mileage of less than 7000 miles, it was driven only until 1973, and was then unused for the next 36 years. After acquiring the Mustang, the current owner then had it recommissioned and brought it back to the UK. Since 2009, it has been kept in dry storage and was never driven on UK roads.
This great example of an American muscle car completed its recommission just three months ago, in July 2022, and it included a total overhaul of its small block Displacement of the engine was also increased to 297 cu in (4.9 Liters) and everything was replaced except the block: forged pistons and H-beam rods, new camshaft bearings, uprated oil pump, and the head ported and tempered to suit unleaded fuel. The example was equipped with a Holley 4-barrel ‘Street Warrior’ carburetor, Offenhauser intake and headers and Flowmax exhaust.
For the rebuild, it also included the rest of the drivetrain; driveshafts, the axles and the rear differential, Airshock rear springs, new master cylinder, rebuilt front disc brakes, caliper pistons, pads and brake lines.
The muscle car’s Candy Apple Red/Monte Carlo stripe kit is impressively original, with factory option GT bucket seats and ‘Sport Deck’ rear seats. The vinyl upholstery and the headlining of the example are also original.
Car & Classic Head of Editorial Chris Pollitt shared, “A large number of the classic cars auctioned by Car & Classic have been cared for consistently and lovingly for their entire life. However, you won’t find many original 1967 Mustang Fastbacks with just 6,900 miles on the clock, having been in storage most of their life, and then recommissioned to such high standards. Make no mistake, this is no My Little Pony.”
