Interior Decor Group: Dual tone seats Trim “6G” (light Ivy gold/medium Ivy Gold vinyl Interior Décor Group), leather-wrapped shifter handle, brushed aluminum trim (dash and doors), deluxe steering wheel w/center pad, floor and roof consoles, Control panel warning lights, door courtesy lights with Red and White Len's, 8-track stereo radio, factory air conditioning, dash "knee pad".
Engine: Code C, 289 ci, 2BBC, Autolite 2100 Original Carburetor (rebuilt in 1994 and 2011), 200 Horsepower.
Transmission: Cruise-O-Matic C-4 Automatic (Code U).
It's a rather expensive car to restore to original (relative to a garden variety coupe) given all the decor goodies and the A/C. I don't thing there are too many remaining since not everyone is willing to spend that kind of money on a coupe.
So, the dash trim is the "brushed aluminum" dash kit (for A/C vents) for 1967 that costs about $300.0 new. The lower dash pad is a '67 and '68 option that costs $23.0 right now at CJ Ponyparts (from $32.0 regular price).
Glad you liked the Blog and thank you for the motivation. Today I had 2 gentlemen from STN Auto Restorations kindly stop by the house and look at my car for a paint quote. I hope we can reach an agreement. I finally decided to paint the car in its original Lime Gold color.
First, your car is a very loaded example with only a few factory options not selected.
Second, I'm not trying to bust your chops but there are a few minor points that are incorrect in your option summary. Given the tendency to accept what is posted on the internet as gospel, I thought it might be helpful to clarify those points. As best as I can recall:
For 1967, the exterior decor group was a stand alone option consisting of the wheel opening moldings, the hood louvers with integral turn signal indicators, the quarter panel extension and trunk lip molding (standard on fastbacks), and the pop open gas cap.
The ribbed tail panel was option upgrade to the exterior decor group.
The vinyl top was a stand alone option.
The rocker panel moldings were a stand alone option (standard on Fastbacks) or included in the Sport Sprint option package.
The styled steel wheels were a stand alone option on any V8 equipped Mustang.
On the interior decor group, it did not include the deluxe simulated wood grain steering wheel, floor console, AM/8 track radio, air conditioning, or the convenience control panel (warning lights), all of those being stand alone options.
In addition to your list of features, the interior decor group also included stainless steel trim on the pedal pads, stainless seat back buttons, and the hard plastic bucket seat backs and lower covers with stainless trim.
The dash knee pad was standard equipment on all 1967 Mustangs and the shift handle cover included in the interior decor group and the sport sprint package is plastic simulated leather.
If anyone knows otherwise, please share.
