Big-block Candy Apple Mustang Primped and Ready for Close-up
Every fine detail of the 1967 Ford Mustang GTA fastback is examined in this quick video.
The video above comes to us from the Watch This Car YouTube channel and it features a close-up walk-around of a 1967 Ford Mustang GTA fastback S-Code. While all classic Mustangs are beautiful in their own way, Hollywood made the early fastback models the object of many gearheads’ desires and when the first physical refresh of America’s favorite pony car came around in 1967, a star was born.
The 1967 Ford Mustang fastback is one of the most sought-after performance cars in American history and during that model year, the 390-cubic inch V8 was the biggest, most powerful engine offered. 1967 was also the only model year when the GTA package was available, so the big block-powered pony car in the video above is easily one of the most desirable classic Mustangs.
The 1967 Ford Mustang was the only one to be offered with the GTA package. The GTA package was the GT package with an automatic transmission and come 1968, the automatic transmission was simply an option for the GT rather than a package of its own, but for 1967, GTA was a unique offering.
Next, while the 1967 Mustang GTA was offered with a few different engines, the S-Code options introduced the 390-cubic inch V8 with 320 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque. This was the most powerful engine option for 1967 and during the classic era, only the 428 and 429 engines were stronger.
In the long run, if you want a 1967 Ford Mustang that has all of the most desirable options, you want a GTA fastback with the S-Code 390; just like the car shown in the video above.
In the video above, we get to check out a 1967 Mustang GTA fastback from Poland in Candy Apple Red from every angle, inside and out. We don’t get to see the 390-cubic inch engine, but we get a good look at every inch of the exterior along with a quick look at the interior, allowing us to behold the beauty of this big block pony car.
The video ends with the S-Code Mustang GTA firing up and driving away, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
