Thread: Low Classic? - 1967 Mustang Coupe

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Low Classic? - 1967 Mustang Coupe

    Hey folks!
    When I was 15 I bought my first car, a 1967 Mustang Coupe. My dad's and my goal was to rebuild the car from ground up, it originally had a 289ci engine but luckily this one had a 351ci in it!
    During all the time restoring it, I had many different ideas on how the car would look like when finished, Blue, Bullitt-like, Red, Grey... But now I made my final decision and want it black!
    The car will get its paintjob done soon, photos will follow, stay tuned!

    (Don't think that this will be done tomorrow, I'm doing my last year in highschool and don't always have time to work bysides. And other than that I also want to spend some money on my Miata too..)

    Video with photos:

    black one is solid for sure! How much rust repair did you have to do?

    Well not too much at all, the front had to be cut out and replaced, one door panel had to be replaced, the interior had a couple of small holes, also been replaced!

    Since I'm not from the US and I'm not aware of how much these bad boys cost, would you please give me a hint on the price?
    Was it under 10k, mid 10's?

    Seemed like a pretty solid car from what I could see.
    They're very rare here in Europe. I saw one a couple years ago and I will never forget that day.

    I was inside my mom's Mondeo(US it's a Ford Fusion) and I heard a big engine going up the hill ... when I saw it I couldn't take my eyes of the car. My jaw dropped and I was like:

    If only...

    Well I'm not from the US either haha, I got the car for 3000€.. bought it in Germany and headed over to Luxembourg! I don't think that you would find another one in that condition for 3000€ nowadays!


    (Anyone can help me with my signature, I simply can't upload a good quality image, 500x100 looks strange, and I see many other resolutions on here?)

    My godmother is living in Luxembourg ...

    I never thought they would be this cheap here in Europe.
    I saw some ads a couple years ago and they were cheap (2k cheap) but I always thought that taxes would kill the deal.

    Well, you were really lucky to find this car.
    Congratulations!

    I will be camping over here waiting for updates.

    Thanks people!
    Well I really have no idea what rims I want to put on it, put I'm not really in need of wheels at the moment since the car will slowly progess... next year i'll go to university and in approx. 3 years I'll finally earn money and will be able to finish the rest of the project. Every money I get is running into my cars but it is by far not enough to finish the Mustang..
