In 1964, Lee Iacocca and his team unveiled a new car that would become one of the most iconic, best selling and longest running production automobiles of all time. In fact, as a result, they created a whole new class of vehicle, the pony car. It was of course, the Ford Mustang. Initially offered with a choice of in-line six cylinder or small-block V8 engines, it was not until the first redesign for the 1967 model year, that it was able to accommodate a big-block V8. The venerable 390 cu.in. FE engine was chosen to fill the newly enlarged engine bay and this imbued the Mustang with previously unseen performance. However, due to the cost (almost 10% of the purchase price), out of a total of 472,121 Mustangs produced in 1967, only 2,181 S-Code (390 engined) convertibles were built, making them amongst the rarest and most sought after Mustangs ever.
This particular car was sold new in Los Angeles and has had just one owner since 1974. Still retaining its black California plate, it also retains its original Light & Dark Blue Crinkle Vinyl interior and its original exterior colour of Brittany Blue Metallic. The body and underside are completely rust-free and very straight. The four barrel 390 V8 and C6 trans are freshly rebuilt with under 500 miles on them. All the wheel cylinders and flex hoses have also just been replaced, so it stops as well as it goes!! The power soft top is virtually new and in great shape. It goes up and down perfectly and has a matching white top boot.
Ultra rare, a blast to drive and cheap to maintain!! What could be better?!!
