Well I've been searching for a 67 fastback mustang for my wife for awhile. That's what she wants! I found this one and of course it has to be far away!

It's not in our possession yet. The car is coming from Canada. Talking with TFX international estimated arrival is 3-6 weeks. A lot of paperwork, but hope it's worth it.

The 67 has a restoration done and was originally a lime paint color. This is a A code with a C4. It has a lot of factory options and also some upgrades. Disc brakes, power steering and AC to name a few.

Very nice Brady! I always liked the 67’s. Someone spent mega-hours on this not just the restoration, but color changes are very involved.
It’ll look nice in the garage with the others.

Thank you. I'll feel better once it's in our possession. No doubt it took a lot of work. Marti report shows it was a lime color. New door tag they added has a T for paint code candy apple red.

All original fenders. I have a lot more pictures.

Thanks Bob! The seller has made arrangements with TFX international. He's dealt with them before. There is a coolant leak at thermostat housing they are fixing first. And then he's bringing it to his detailer for a final go over.

We'll see how much this car gets driven lol.

Thanks! I like both, but a lot more coupes around my area. Only seen a couple fastbacks.

I hope the whole transportation goes smoothly.

Beautiful car OP! As much as I'd love to get a classic fastback Mustang, they're just too far out of my price range.

It's obvious from those pics that the 2010-2014 GT500 is heavily influenced by the 67-68 fastback. Probably why I love my car as much as I do.

Also, you picked the best color but I might be biased.

Thank you! I never thought we'd be getting a classic mustang. And I never thought it would be bright red!

Fastbacks are definitely harder to find. I was watching Mecum Tulsa on Saturday and they had a good number of '60s Mustangs but the vast majority were non-Fastbacks. When I was hunting around last week for '67 Fastbacks, I think I found one other than the one you landed. You did well, sir!

We watch Mecum all the time! I'd love to go to one someday. I agree, they are definitely harder to find. I have a friend who also has a 67 fastback. It's got a newer ford blue paint job and beefed up engine on E85.

We are excited about getting it. I just need to figure out how to arrange all of these in the shop. Definitely need a 4 post lift...

Garagemahall problems??? Wish I had them. Lmao!

One thing is for sure Brady you definitely will not lose money on that purchase. Fastbacks are always in demand.

Oh and thank you for your compliment on my build. I'm happy to know you've been checking it out from time to time my friend.
