1967 Ford Mustang fastback.jpg

Ford Mustang. 1967–8 (prod. 789,525). 2-door coupé, 2-door fastback, 2-door convertible. F/R, 200 in³ (I6 OHV), 289, 302, 390, 427, 428 in³ (V8 OHV). Mustang’s first revamp saw improvements in most areas, slightly muscular styling, and more cubic inches as horsepower war began. Wheelbase identical but car wider by 2·7 in. Shelby GT-350 returned, but Carroll Shelby also introduced GT-500 with 428 in³ with claimed 355 hp—though it probably had more. Emissions’ regulations began to affect ’68s, even Shelbys, though cars themselves had detail improvements. Bullitt fastback among the ’68s; 428 Cobra Jet introduced for this model year. Shelby GT-500KR (King of the Road) took muscled-up Cobra Jet engine: Consumer Guide suspected close to 400 hp rather than claimed 335. Sales fell more for ’68, however, probably due to increased competition from GM and AMC.
