Best looking fastback: 1965-66 or 1967-68?

A friend of mine was looking for a 1965-68 Mustang fastback and he did not know which style he liked more. He finally decided to buy this week a 1966 Fastback (Project) that is a factory 6 cyl and he wants to convert to a V-8.
What is your favorite year for the fastback and why?
I will inform my friend of your replies

Guess I'm biased towards the 67-8. It's a little bit bigger of a car and it looks more muscular to me.

Living the dream or running it down... haven't figured out which yet.

67 no question... First year of the big block. More aggressive body contours. The deluxe interior is the best one of all the years. In my humble opinion of course.

1967 A code fastback
1967 Shelby clone (supercharged coyote)
1967 S code fastback
RCR GT40
1984 Porsche 911

If someone offered me a 65 Fastback all painted up like a GT-350 or a 67 Fastback in Dark Green (black, Deluxe interior), and said I could only have one..... There is no way I could choose.....


So, I'd kick his *** and take both.

I think I'm going to post a couple of questions like "What's the best color?" or "What's the best '60's song to drive to?" or . . .
Choosing is definitely a personal choice.

both for different reasons, 67/68 more muscular like above said and 65/66 more classic looking

I guess our taste sometimes changes over time. I used to like 65/66 but now I have grown to like 67/68s better...............but the best ever is still the 69!
Kinda like when 58 Impalas came out I absolutely hated them for years now I'd love to won one. Same for the 59s.

My one gripe on the 67 is the concave notch below the trunk on the back end. I always felt this messed up the great rump of earlier mustangs. Also was never a fan of the chrome trim that encircled the back end on some 67's.

'67 for me. But I like the '65 convert better and that's what I daily drive. In high school, a buddy bought a new, red '67 FB, raised the rear tastefully and put chromed all around with bigs and littles. Ruined me for life as regards fastbacks...
