014 - Reborn from the Ashes: Resurrected 1967 Ford Mustang Emerges as a Warrior, Eager for Redemption

Unleashing the power hidden beneath its sleek exterior, the 1967 Mustang was a versatile beast that could transition from being a mere grocery-getter to a roaring rocket on wheels with the right engine choice.

At the heart of this model year was the formidable 200 (3.3-liter) Thriftpower, delivering a respectable 120 horsepower for the base unit. But for those seeking true exhilaration, the V8 lineup beckoned with the famous 289 (4.7-liter) small-block, available in a tantalizing array of options.

Picture the C-code Ford Mustangs, boasting a 2-barrel version that commanded an impressive 210 horsepower. Yet, its A-code siblings stole the spotlight, flexing their upgraded 4-barrel configuration with a mighty 225 horsepower. And for the audacious few, the K-code model awaited, a HiPo variant of the 289, boasting a thrilling 270 horsepower.

But the ultimate thrill came from the S-code Mustangs, crowned with the dominating 390 (6.4-liter) V8, roaring to life with a breathtaking 320 horsepower for the 1967 models.

While the Mustang project initially seemed lackluster with its standard 283 engine, it holds untapped potential for those daring enough to give it a second chance.

Originally intended as a mere donor vehicle, this Mustang has since risen from the shadows, transforming into a restoration candidate of its own. Admittedly, it wears the marks of time with the customary rust befitting its age, necessitating meticulous metalwork, particularly on the floors.

Yet, a glimmer of hope shines from beneath the hood—the engine still springs to life, albeit with a carburetor that yearns to be revitalized. Remarkably, the original unit remains intact, an invaluable asset for those envisioning a restoration that adheres faithfully to factory specifications.

This incredibly complete Mustang may find itself changing hands at a surprisingly affordable price, as eBay seller hidealnow presents it in an enticing no-reserve auction.

As of now, the top bid hovers near $2,000, a tempting opportunity for the discerning enthusiast ready to embark on a captivating restoration journey.
