The Owner of This 1967 Mustang Had a Stroke While Changing the Oil, Car Still Untouched

If you wanted a brand-new Mustang back in 1967, the first engine you could order was the 200 (3.3-liter) Thriftpower with 120 horsepower.

The options list started with the 289 (4.7-liter) 2-barrel installed on C-code Ford Mustangs and producing 200 horsepower. A-code models, on the other hand, came with a 4-barrel version of the same engine, with the output increased to 225 horsepower.

The most powerful choices in 1967 were the K-code Mustangs with 270 horsepower, as well as the S-code siblings that were fitted with a 390 (6.4-liter) V8 developing 320 horsepower.

This particular Mustang is powered by a 289 as well, but on the other hand, the current condition of the engine is unknown at this point. And this makes perfect sense.

According to eBay seller cash4carz, the previous owner of this Mustang lifted the car to change the oil when they had a stroke. The family left the vehicle completely untouched, so when they sold the entire estate, the buyer came across the Mustang in pretty much the same condition as it was when the owner passed away.

In other words, this Mustang is a garage find that’s yet to be started, driven, or washed. This means that whoever buys the car will have to inspect it thoroughly to figure out just how much of it can still be used for a possible restoration job.

Not much else is known about the Mustang, but based on the photos provided by the seller, it seems to be a doable project.

The bidding for this Mustang has already reached $20,000, but on the other hand, the auction also comes with a reserve. And unsurprisingly, it’s yet to be met.

It remains to be seen if this Mustang ends up finding a new home when the auction comes to an end, but so far, the battle to buy the car appears to be rather fierce.
