Lot details
Registration No: AKX254E
Chassis No: 7T03A118116
Mot Expiry: April 2018

- 1 of just 283 Ford Mustang Convertibles to be finished in Nightmist Blue with Black bucket seats during the 1967 model year

- Highly desirable and rare specification includes 289ci (4.7 litre) V8 engine, factory four-speed manual gearbox and the GT Equipment Group option

- Marti Report included, circa £2,500 worth of invoices from Mustang Maniacs and a fresh MOT

Just about the sportiest `small block' Mustang Convertible that money could buy during the 1967 model year (with the exception of the unicorn K-Code cars), chassis 7T03A118116 was built with a 289ci (4.7 litre) A-Code V8 engine, four-speed manual transmission and the prized GT Equipment Group option: grille mounted fog lamps, power front disc brakes, dual exhausts, GT fuel cap, handling package, rocker panel stripes and GT emblems etc. One of only 283 soft-tops to be finished in Nightmist Blue with Black bucket seats that season (regardless of engine / gearbox choice), it was completed at Ford's Metuchen plant on October 3rd 1966 and supplied new via Robin Ford of Glenolden, Pennsylvania. Sourced by the vendor from Georgia after a long search, the four-seater also boasts a power hood and air conditioning. Featuring a `garage door' centre console and concealed stereo with Bluetooth phone adapter, the seller tells us that `AKX 254E drives incredibly well and starts immediately after the mandatory six pumps'. Presentable but not perfect, the paintwork is microblistered in places, this decidedly rare and appealing muscle car is offered for sale with c.£2,500 worth of receipts from Mustang Maniacs and a fresh MOT certificate. Go find another!

Faced with increasing competition from the likes of the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Charger, Ford opted to comprehensively re-style its class-leading Mustang for the 1967-model year. Sporting a jutting grille, concave rear panel and widened sheetmetal, the newcomer was not only more visually imposing than its predecessor but also able to accommodate larger `big block' engines. Faster in a straight line than their `small block' siblings, the heavier powerplants inevitably lost out in the handling stakes. Steve McQueen as Lieutenant Frank Bullitt may have been faster in a '67 Shelby GT350 but looked oh so cool in his 390 GT Fastback!
