Down On The Mile High Street: 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback
While I prefer daily-driven survivors for this series, it’s impossible to resist photographing a flawless 1960s machine making a rare street appearance in my neighborhood. This 289/4-speed ’67 fastback spends most of its life garaged, but the weather in Denver this week has been so nice that the car’s owner must have felt compelled to give it some fresh air.
I’ve never been much of a Mustang fan (I prefer the Fairlane-based Fords and Mercuries of the era), but I still think this is the best-looking Mustang Ford ever made. It’s great to see one with the factory wheels and no slapper bars on the leaf springs.
Since I’ve gone ahead and built a stereo digital camera to shoot 3D stuff for Cars In Depth, I figured I’d shoot the Mustang with my new twin-camera rig. The red paint on this car really messes with the view using red/cyan anaglyph glasses, so here’s the black-and-white version. More stereo shots in the gallery below.

- ToolGuy Here is an interesting graphic, if you're into that sort of thing.
- ToolGuy Nice website you got there (even the glitches have glitches)
- Namesakeone Actually, per the IIHS ratings, "Acceptable" is second best, not second worst. The ratings are "Good," "Acceptable," "Marginal" and "Poor."
- Inside Looking Out "And safety was enhanced generally via new reversing lamps and turn signals fitted as standard equipment."Did not get it, turn signals were optional in 1954?
- Lorenzo As long as Grenadier is just a name, and it doesn't actually grenade like Chrysler UltraDrive transmissions. Still, how big is the market for grossly overpriced vehicles? A name like INEOS doesn't have the snobbobile cachet yet. The bulk of the auto market is people who need a reliable, economical car to get to work, and they're not going to pay these prices.
