CKCStories #6 of 100
I’ve owned this California-built ‘67 Mustang convertible since 2001 when I brought it back to Canada. It still had the California black plates! It has all original sheet metal but it has been repainted in its original colour of Burnt Amber, a one year only colour.
It is an early production ’67 as it was manufactured in September of 1966 in San Jose. It is one of only 4,848 of the 44,808 convertibles produced that year to have the deluxe interior. The interior is Pastel Parchment and was completely redone in 2013.
The car sold new at Tuban Ford in Mountain View California and listed new for $3,666.22. According to the Marti report it is one of fifty-six produced with these paint/trim codes. It has a 289 V8, auto, power steering, standard drum brakes, power top, console, deluxe steering wheel, AM radio, and tinted glass. It still retains its original California exhaust emission equipment, which is a very rudimentary system compared to today’s cars. It drives very well and my wife and enjoy cruising in it, and it full of summer fun.
