According to ClassicMustang.com, 1967 marked the first significant redesign of the Ford Mustang. Overall, the redesign was a success and the 1967 Mustang was widely considered to be an improvement over the previous years.
In recent years the 67 Mustang fastback has gained fame after being featured in the Nicholas Cage remake of Gone in 60 Seconds. The 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500 referred to as “Eleanor” was the achilles’ heel of Nic’s character, car thief Memphis Raines.
Chevrolet was rolling out the new Chevy Camaro, and Ford felt the pressure to perform. Thus, the 67 Mustangs were redesigned to reflect a more muscular look and fit a more powerful engine. The suspension system was also improved.
Though the wheel base remained the same, the length and the front suspension track of the new 67 Mustangs were increased 2 inches in length and 2.5 inches in width to accommodate the Mustang’s first big block engine, an impressive 390 cubic inch 6.4L V-8 320hp.
