1967 Ford Mustang Sitting Under a Cover Hopes It Still Has a Place in Our World

Restoring a Ford Mustang has become a very rewarding experience, not only if you plan on selling the overhauled example (which can become a money-making business with the right projects) or keeping the model for your collection.

Someone on eBay has what looks like a solid candidate for a daily driver, though it could also tick some boxes for a potential restoration aspirant.

I'm a big fan of easy and cheap Mustang projects that can return to the road as daily drivers, but the lack of information in the case of this 1967 C-code raises more questions than answers. It's impossible to tell if the vehicle is still original, complete, and unrestored, so it's safe to assume that the answer to all these dilemmas is not.

The car has been sitting for years under a cover, so I expect the typical rust problems, including on the undersides and in the trunk.

The vehicle also comes with hood damage and more problems on the passenger doors, so if you plan to use it as a daily driver, you'll probably want to spray a new coat of paint.

The owner doesn’t share many specifics, but they reveal that their pony is a C-code Mustang. It means the car rolled off the assembly lines with a 289 2-barrel under the hood. The unit developed 200 horsepower on the 1967 Mustang before dropping to 195 horsepower on the 1968 model year.

If you find a C-code Mustang too boring and would instead go for a more potent engine, which wouldn't be surprising, considering the 289 no longer runs, you can always pick the top choice for the 1967 model year. The S-code Mustang was offered with a 390 4-barrel unit that developed 320 horsepower – this engine was upgraded to 325 horsepower a year later.

Seller amywsharedips shared only a couple of photos revealing the interior, but the Mustang will likely require a full cabin overhaul in addition to the obvious must-have cleaning.

The Mustang looks intriguing and seems prepared to return to the road with the right fixes, but the most important part is that it appears rather solid. The owner says the car was last on the road approximately a decade ago, so fixing everything should be an easy winter project.

The selling part is the best news, as the car sells without a reserve. The bidding started at $1 but has already reached $2,150, with 28 people fighting to take this Mustang home. The listing will expire in five days, and if you're interested in seeing the car in person before committing to a purchase, you can do it in Maryland. You'll need a trailer to take this Mustang home for obvious reasons.
