1967 fast back questions

I traded my 1991 mustang notch for a 1967 fast back. I received a marti report and it says it is a 2+2, it is an A code. some one removed the 289 4V and 3 spd. they put a 68 302 4V with an fmx in it. I received a 390 gt engine with it, and disc brake setup with it. po changed the gauge cluster to the GT style with tach.

my question is do I put it back to original, or make it in to a 390gt car?

I'd go original on that car... for future value.

that is what I was wondering what a fully restored 2+2 would be worth?
I forgot to mention that they changed the interior from the light green to black too.

thanks

First---looks like you come out on the good end of that trade for sure. Not saying the '91 wasn't nice. Do it what ever way you want. It's still going to bring good money if you decide to sell it because it's a 67 Fastback. If it's nice it's not going to make a whole lot of difference what motor's in it. And that can always be changed again if someone wants one that's closer to the original motor code. A lot of people like the FE motor's also. .


Mildly built 302, 4 speed, 3.40 gears. 6 pt. cage.
Narrow rear. Pro-Stars-15X7'' & 15X10'' on rear.
Lowered 1'' all around.

IMHO you have free license to do whatever you'd like. If you're concerned with future value, then don't do anything that can't be undone and put back the way it was originally. If you do with the FE make sure you keep the 8 inch rear stored somewhere. No need to keep the non-original 302 and FMX - I'd eBay those items to help pay for the 9 inch rear and tranny to go with the 390.

Was the exterior originally Lime Gold? One of my favorites!

Way to go on the trade. A 67' fastback will always hold much more value than a fox body. What was the original color on the Mustang? The color combination has been changed to a widely appealing but overdone red on black.

how hard would it be to trace the past of a car. just out of curiosity. because someone sure pounded the living daylights out of the inside of the shock towers to get something big to fit. the car was stored for about 12 years before i got it.

my wife and I love cruising around in it. I had a S code fastback 20 years ago and sold it to pay some tickets. I won't be making that mistake twice. now I do my racing at the drag strip with a different car I have.
