1967 Ford Mustang

Featured image for “1967 Ford Mustang”

The 1967 Ford Mustang is a classic example of the iconic American car that has been in continuous production since 1964, making it the longest-produced Ford car nameplate. The Mustang was developed as a sporty coupe and convertible, featuring “long hood, short deck” proportions and a highly styled appearance that set it apart from other vehicles on the market.

The 1967 redesign of the Mustang included a facelift that gave the car a more massive look overall and allowed for a big block engine to be offered for the first time. The front and rear end styling was more pronounced, and the “twin cove” instrument panel offered a thicker crash pad and larger gauges. The hardtop, fastback, and convertible body styles continued as before, with the addition of a Mercury variant, called the Cougar, which used its own styling cues, such as a “power cat” logo and hidden quad headlamps.

New safety regulations by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for 1967 included an energy-absorbing steering column and wheel, 4-way emergency flashers, a dual-circuit hydraulic braking system, and softer knobs. These safety features were important for protecting drivers and passengers in the event of a collision.

The 1967 Ford Mustang remains a popular collector’s car today, prized for its classic styling and powerful engine options. At Texoma Classics, we specialize in restoring classic cars like the Mustang to their original glory, preserving their unique character and functionality for generations to come.
