We are pleased to offer 1967 Mustang 390 “Big Block” Fastback s/n 30239, a special-order, one-original-owner, accident-free, time-warp “preservation” car. For the 1967 model year all Mustangs featured a wide body with a wider engine bay and front suspension, allowing Ford’s engineers to squeeze in the potent big block 390 cubic inch V8 engine to compete against the “big block” Dodge Charger and Chevrolet’s Camaro and Chevelle coming to market in the muscle cars wars. Starting at a base price of only $2,592.17, 1967 Mustang s/n 30239 was special ordered fully loaded and fitted from new with the 390 “Big Block” “S” code Thunderbird Special engine with a 10:50-1 compression ratio ($158.08); the GT Competition Group ($205.05); the heavy-duty top-loader 4-speed gearbox ($233.18); a limited slip differential ($41.60) the unbreakable 9″ Factory differential; dual exhaust and the wider 15″ wheels then only fitted to the Shelby GTs. Also fitted from new were the fold down “sport deck” rear seats ($64.77); an AM radio ($57.51) and the interior and exterior décor group ($146.92) also only fitted to the Shelby GTs. 1967 Mustang s/n 30239 was one of only 141 Mustangs delivered from new in 1967 with the-then-very-expensive “GT Equipment Group” handling package ($388.53) which included Koni shocks; sway bars; a Hurst shift; a Holley 4-barrel carb; chrome air cleaner; chrome oil breather cap; power front disc brakes with Kelsey-Hayes 11″ ventilated discs; wheel lip moldings; a deluxe steering wheel; upper and lower consoles and a remotely adjustable driver’s mirror.
