The first-generation Ford Mustang was manufactured by Ford from March 1964 until 1973. The introduction of the Mustang created a new class of automobile known as the pony car. The Mustang’s styling, with its long hood and short deck, proved wildly popular and inspired a host of competition. It was initially introduced on April 17, 1964, as a hardtop and convertible with the fastback version put on sale in August 1964. At the time of its introduction, the Mustang, sharing its underpinnings with the Falcon, was slotted into a compact car segment.
The 1967 model year Mustang was the first significant redesign of the original model. Ford's designers began drawing up a larger version even as the original was achieving sales success. The major mechanical feature was to allow the installation of a big-block V8 engine. The overall size, interior and cargo space were increased. Exterior trim changes included concave taillights, side scoop, chrome side ornamentation, square rear-view mirrors, and usual yearly wheel and gas cap changes. The interior was revised, discontinuing the embossed running horse motif on the seat backs (the source for the "pony interior" nickname) in favour of a new deluxe interior package, which included special colour options, brushed aluminium or woodgrain dash trim, seat buttons, and special door panels.
The car we have on offer today was 1st registered in January 1967 and is presented in light blue with 2 tone blue interior and a cream hood. The car is equipped with the 289 V8 engine combined with a 3 speed automatic gearbox. The interior has been equipped with air conditioning, a brushed aluminium centre console, a split all glass rear window and a tonneau cover. This is a great opportunity to buy an American classic that not only looks stunning but drives and sounds fantastic.
