When we walked into the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum this was not the first car I went to but it was the first car that made me stop and drool! This is one fabulous Mustang and in a color you hardly ever see. Our 67 Project Mustang came from the factory in this exact color! However, we decided to not repaint it this color because I never saw a burgundy 67 I liked and I didn’t much care for some of the original paint I was able to uncover on our car. Now, after seeing this beauty I am completely rethinking the future color of our 67 Project Car.
This car is a rare 1967 GT with the 390 engine and 4-speed. It is a classic design and has arguably the best motor transmission combination for the year plus a very attractive and unique color.
Not only did we feel fortunate to get to see this car but as Katrina and I stood there discussing it the gentleman next to me spoke up and said it was his car and he would be happy to answer any questions I might have. The owner, Rob Timken of Florida, was very helpful and even provided his phone number for future questions.
The rear panel on this car is an option I love but is hardly ever seen. It was a 67 only option and gives the car a completely different look to the rear.
The engine compartment is detailed to the max, you can see a better picture below.
Although the images in the video are not as sharp as our photos it provides a different perspective of this great car.
Every panel is straight as an arrow and the paint is a mile deep. Check out the reflection of the 55 Thunderbird in the rear quarter.
There were Boss “9” Mustangs and several Shelby cars in the Museum, this was easily my favorite of all the Stangs.
The interior is done in just as high quality as the outside and engine.
Just look and admire all the detail in just this little area of the engine compartment.
