Welcome to my 1967 Mustang page


The key to restoring a car is to never think about how much it is costing you, how much time it will take and what it will be worth when you are done. The real truth is that it will never be done and there will alway be more to spend money on.

My first decision was to restore the car to be a Mustang as if built in the late 70's. Basically the car I would have built if I had the money then. I put myself through college so retread tires and a FM converter was big upgrade.

A quick click on ebay


The above pics above are mostly from the winning ebay page of my Mustang. I was looking for a 1967-69 Mustang to restore. The car looked as if with a little work I could get it on the road. From the amount of in work in the below picture galleries you can tell it need more than a little work. Oh, an important safety tip: Never drink and go on ebay...

Start of the Restoration


First step in restoration is take off everything that is rusted, broken or no longer works. The restoration was done when I had spare money and time. I had dabbled working on the mustang for a few years, in the mean time I met my wife and was remarried. She said fix it or get rid of it. It was on; the majority of the restoration was over the next two years. I now have a mustang that is a blast to drive.
The suspension was first to be replaced, the rear leaf spring took many nights to get the forty year old bolts off. The front springs were a good lesson in restoration, the springs I bought were a pain pain to get install. After the install, the Mustang now had a gasser stance with the nose looking up. I became apparent that the front springs were intended for a big block mustang (or a monster truck). Another trip to CJ Pony Parts and the stance was much better.

Restoration in Progress


With help of a Marti report, I found that the car was originally a six cylinder, 3 speed, Wimbledon White with an Aqua interior. When I bought the Mustang it had a 1968 302, 4 speed, painted with a later Calypso Teal paint and no interior. The front wheel hubs were still six cylinder 4 lug.

Restoration in Progress


The front drum brakes with a single non power master cylinder hardly worked in the late 60's, so I upgraded to a new power booster dual master cylinder with front disc. As I look over the front steering it become apparent that the solid rod steering column (sometimes called the impeller) that I need to spend another thousand for a flaming river rack and pinion with a tilt wheel.
I should mention that I came to realize that everything cost a thousand.

Restoration in Progress


The floor boards had been replaced, but the previous owners had re-welded the old rusted seat riser back in. I am assuming the floor boards where replaced before the seat riser were reproduced. The Mustang came with long headers and the passenger side header was touching the floor boards. The 302 has a decent cam in it and with the header touching the floor board the final effect was a top fuel dragster riding experience. I replaced the leaky exhaust with tri-headers and flow master dual exhaust system. Luckily my neighbors were tolerant of loud late nights test drives around my neighborhood.

Almost Done-ish


For my birthday my wife bought me a posi unit with 3:50 gears. This was a big improvement to torque! She is a keeper. I have also replaced the fuel sytem, most of the wiring and the interior.

Southern Stables Speed


Brad Bennett has done a good deal of the work on the car. Brad is a master mechanic known as an expert tuner and got my car humming. Brad's auto center is called Southern Stables Speed and has a built in dyno. When Brad asked if I wanted to put my mustang on the dyno, I jumped at it!






You get used to the sound your car makes while driving, is was really neat to hear the sweet sound of my mustang on the dyno.

Car shows and Fun!


I can still spend money on my 67, I would love a repaint, a supercharger, an overdrive and maybe nitrous. As of right now the 67 is fun to cruise around in and take to shows.
