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
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.
5R07C, 4spd Toploader, Black Std Interior, Originally Ivy Green, Edelbrock 500cfm-4V on Perf 289 Intake,
Hurst Super Shifter, Baer SS4 Disc Brakes (4-piston, Aluminum, USA Made),
New Front Susp. w/Shelby Drop, New Steering, Drake Export Brace / 1" Sway Bar / Monte Carlo Bar, Mallory Unilite Distributor
65/66 Cause that is what I have. I have a 68 Torino FB, I think it has the nicest roofline of them all.
1965 Fastback-Scat 331, Dart heads, FPA headers, Air Gap intake, 650 Ultra DP, Cobra pan, Lunati VooDoo cam 61003, C-4, 10 inch converter, Reverse manual valve body,Detroit Truetracw/3.50s, subframe connectors.
1968 S-code Torino Fastback= project
1966 A-code Mustang coupe=Basket case not sure what to do with it used some parts for the fastback.
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...
