Actually the 3 speed you have in the car is a relatively rare "heavy duty" 3 speed, unlike the regular 3.03 speed that came with T, C and A code cars. Might be a good conversation starter at shows later on.
IRC that heavy duty 3 speed had to be ordered as a separate-but-mandatory option when you ticked the 390 option on the order sheet, unless you chose the 4 speed or C6. Also, the sharp white 390 GT fastback that was featured in the two page centerfold spread of the '67 Ford Mustang dealer brochure was listed as having the 390 and 3 speed manual setup as well. So it wasn't at all unheard of back then.
This will be nice car when you're done!
[/SIGPIC]67 Fastback GT -- original colour (Frost Turquoise), original 289 A code engine. Pic is of me and the Mustang taken in May of '67, with original F70-14 Wide Ovals. Same car is now restored to "as new" but 3 speed tranny swapped out for 4 speed back in the mid '80's, with tach dash, original Equalock rear, Koni's, Opentracker UCA, LCA, roller perches and idler arm, roller bearing pedal cluster, Cibie headlights, 4100 carb (old 4300 put in storage probably forever)
