Mustang Sport Sprint
1967 Ford Mustang Sport Sprint
1967 Ford Mustang Sport Sprint
From the 1967 Mustang advertising, bred first… to be first. Then going on to list various features and at the end that say, and I quote “Smitten? Great! I now pronounce you man and Mustang?”
For consignment, a 1967 Mustang Sport Sprint in hardtop form which was basically an entry level sport options package which included hood vents, recessed turn signals, white wall tires, full wheel covers, bright metal rocker panel moldings, chrome air cleaner, and vinyl covered shift handle if an automatic transmission was ordered. Early in 1967 the Sport Sprint package was only offered on the hardtop body style, but by June 1967 the convertible was included. This particular car is a 3-owner example and retains its original window sticker, 2 build sheets and even the original warranty card.
Bathed in a very nicely applied Frost Turquoise, straight steel abounds. Gaps are consistent and straight. The iconic hockey stick cove is present in the rear quarters, and it flows into the doors. From the front bumper, grille galloping horse, window and roof trimmings, and rocker trim all chrome is very nice with no dimpling or dulling. For 1967 the styling becomes slightly more aggressive on a simpler grille and deeper headlights, and on the back the former outward V shaped sergeant stripe taillights have now been inverted to inward, but still using 6 individual lights. Original wheels are clad in the correct factory wheel covers and are wrapped in like new red stripe FR70-14 rubber. A black vinyl top in near showroom condition is the dollop of whipped cream on top if you will.
Jet black bounces all around this interior. The textured steel door panels are painted black for the uppers and lowers, and vinyl covered black are panels in the middle with just a touch of chrome trim surround. Front buckets continue with black horizontal stitched inner panels, and smooth black bolsters. This continues into the back seat bench. The buckets flank the center hump with the chrome handled T-shifter sans its vinyl wrapping. A dual squared off eyebrow design is reserved for the dash top and this plays in black and is above more black painted metal on the bottom of the dash. The chrome heater slides are to the driver's left and we can note the original instrument cluster, and steering wheel dead center. Front and center in the dash is the original AM radio along with an added reverb unit below. Black carpeting in good condition floods all the floors and is protected by black rubber mats with the iconic horse logo and some snappy white stripes. The headliner is nice and tight black vinyl. Looking way back into the trunk we see very good condition square plaid vinyl lining throughout looking like new.
Under the pristine hood, in the clean and tidy engine bay, is a 289ci V8. Bathed in its Ford blue glory, this mill is topped with a 2bbl carburetor lurking under the chrome lid of the blue air cleaner assembly. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission is in back with a Ford 8-inch 2.79 rear axle. We note power steering is on to make the drive easier and for reliability our consignor has installed new belts and hoses.
A slight coating of surface rust is seen on some usual suspects, but structurally rust free for the unibody, floor pans and rockers. Patina is on the black painted surfaces, and all is looking good. Drum brakes are seen on all 4 corners and a stock style single exhaust system handles the exhale of spent fossils. Providing the Mustang signature ride is an independent coil sprung front suspension that works along with a leaf spring arrangement in the rear.
This car fired right up, and after a bit of a warm up period, ran very smoothly, drove beautifully, and had good acceleration and handling. It is a good highway cruiser as well. It is also noted it has a nice engine sound emanating from the exhaust.
An older survivor example still maintaining its luster, sporty interior, and smooth-running power plant. Very nice paint, the rarely seen Sport Sprint package, sporty wheel covers with red stripe tires, and shiny chrome and trim. I feel we will be together at least until death do us part.
