Early S-code Fastback

What's your favourite Mustang? Pick three different pony car nutters and there's a chance you'll get three different answers. but for us, an early premium fastback comes high on the list.

In a feature on the series, we open up a little of the history: 

"When Ford decided prior to update its record-setting Mustang for 1967, a lot more went into the re-design than would meet the eyes of most buyers.

"The car didn’t look a great deal larger than the original but was more muscular. Extra width in the engine bay meant space for the ‘big-block’ 6.4-litre engine used in full-sized Fords; space even for the 7.0-litre Nascar version.

"Stronger pressings in areas where the larger engine would generate added stress saw the 1967-68 cars gain weight and really need the added grunt of a ‘big-block’ with its 235kW.

"The concave tail brought a hint of race-style rear spoiler and elongating the nose delivered some added aggression. The fastback profile which had been a late-comer to the Mustang range in 1965 now sloped all the way to the edge of the ‘trunk’ lid."

See the full feature here.

The example shown here is a 1967 in Wimbledon White, which the seller says is an S-code GTA.

The powertrain is a 390ci (6.4lt) V8 in 320hp spec, with a C6 three-speed auto transmission. 

Its equipment level is high, with power-assisted front discs, power steering and air-conditioning.

We're told it's been restored to a high standard and is on the market via Bowral in NSW for $149,900.
