It’s a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback GTA, a rather rare model that somehow ended up in the condition you can check out for yourselves in the gallery here.

The Mustang GTA got to see the daylight in 1967, and it’s actually a Grand Touring model with an automatic transmission. So while GTA means something entirely different today, the moniker has a different purpose on the ’67 Mustang, and it certainly doesn’t stand for Grand Theft Auto.

Now that we set things straight in this regard, let’s see what the project car we’re looking at right here is all about.

Unfortunately, it’s pretty clear from the very beginning that whoever wants to restore this car is a hero. Mostly because the project would most likely end up requiring hundreds of hours of work only to get the car back on the road.

It’s obvious this Mustang fell victim to the rust invasion, and as the owner of the car explains, it needs pretty much everything, including floors, front frame rails, quarters, doors, a hood, fenders, a trunk lid. All of these have been having a hard time lately, and the rust has clearly taken its toll.

The good news is the Mustang still comes with lots of goodies that are otherwise rather difficult to find, including the engine, the automatic transmission part of the GTA package, the interior, fold-down seat, and the glass.

The engine is a 289ci (4.7-liter) V8, according to the owner, and the car comes with lots of options, including power steering, fog lifts, power disk brakes, and others.

The price of this project car seems just about right at the time of writing this article, though there’s a chance it’ll increase a lot more in the coming days. The Mustang is up for auction on eBay, and the highest bid right now is $10,400.
