||1967 Mustang Facts:
The Mustang was completely redesigned for 1967. It was longer and wider,
but it did have the same 108 inch wheelbase of its predecessor. The
grille opening was enlarged for a decidedly meaner look, while the
rea taillight panel was concave. The fastback became a full fastback,
and simulated rear quarter panel scoops were used on all three body
The front suspension was widened and redesigned which resulted in a better
ride. The optional front disc brakes came with power assist, and the 1967
Mustang was the first to use a dual hydraulic brake system.
Engine selection remained the same as in 1966, but with one major exception.
The 390 ci big block, rated at 320 hp, brought serious performance to
the Mustang. The 390 used cast iron intake and exhaust manifolds. Carburetion
was a single 600 cfm Holley four-barrel. All 390s installed in the Mustang
used a dual exhaust system. A total of 28,800 Mustangs were equipped
with the 390.
performance Mustang was still the GT. The GT Equipment Group consisted
of the grille-mounted foglamps, power front disc brakes, dual exhausts
with chrome quad outlets (excluded on the 200 hp 289), F70x14 tires,
GT gas cap, the handling package, rocker panel stripes, and GT
or GTA (for automatic transmission equipped GTs) emblems. A total
of 24,079 Mustangs were equipped with the GT option.
Available only with the GT Equipment Group was the Competition Handling
Package, consisting of firmer suspension components, limited slip
rear axle and fifteen-inch wheels with wire wheel covers.
The interior was also redesigned. Most noticeable was the new dash,
which did away with the Ralley-Pac and also featured integral air
conditioning. The Tilt-away steering wheel was a new option, as was
the fold-down rear seat on the fastback. Other new options included
cruise control, a folding glass rear window on the convertible and
an Exterior Decor Group which included a hood with rear-facing louvers
that housed turn signal indicators, wheelwell moldings and a pop-open
The Interior Decor Group option did not include the galloping Pony
As with precious Mustangs, there was a long list of dealer installed
options which included the Cobra kits. With these kits, the Mustang
enthusiast could improve performance from mild to wild.
