This burgundy 1967 Mustang hardtop "Attitude Of The Week" photo marks our first year on the web. This Mustang is owned by Johnny Walker from Forrest, Illinois. He had this story to share, "I purchased my 67 from an eighteen year old for $500 in 1990. I know that one of the front fenders came from a 68, and also the driver's door appears to be a replacement (signs of three different paint colors). It has a 289 with a 2-barrel carb. Is a 3-speed on the floor. It has Gabriel HyJacker air shocks, 70s series tires on Superior wire-spoke rims. I'm gradually changing the interior from red to black. I plan to install headers with dual exhaust, using Summit Patriot mufflers. Other plans include; K&N filters, Yamaha AM/FM cassette deck, Cobra 29XLR CB radio with K-40, small chrome mud flaps, and a sequential taillight kit. All in due time as money will allow. Someday it will get a new paint job but, the color is not determined at this time."

Lots of original parts still on it (glass, chrome, California smog parts, wheel covers, etc.). This was a daily driver for a number of years but remains in pretty good condition.

This is an original Purple Metallic 1967 Mustang hardtop owned by Curly Long from Indiana. It was our featured Attitude Of The Week starting 10-5-08. Curly purchased the car from its second owner in 2004 - who knew little about the car's history. Curly sent a sample of the original paint to Marti Autoworks who provided him with the color and color code - Purple Metallic, color code M3203-A. Curly adds, "I've talked to the folks at Marti Autoworks about the car and they are aware of only one other '67 Mustang painted Purple Metallic (it is in Iowa). The car was ordered into Chicago and was an 'Order Type: Fleet". I am currently working with the Village Manager in Lombard, Illinois concerning the car. They are called 'Lilac Town' and have or had a fleet of purple cars. We are trying to determine if my car was ever a part of their fleet or the personal car of one of the city officials." If you can offer Curly any assistance with the origins of his car, please comment below.

Check out this amazingly restored Silver Frost 1967 Shelby GT350 Mustang fastback owned by Emmanuel Theux of Monte-Carlo, Monaco. There are several other darker gray 1967 Shelbys out there but this is the color and year that inspired the Eleanor Shelby used in the Nicolas Cage, 2000 movie Gone in 60 seconds which is also a light gray, but more accurately Eleanor Pepper Gray Dupont 44490. There is much confusion on what 1967 Shelby color code 6 for Medium Gray is. Marti confirmed with Emmanuel that over the years Ford color code M1901 Silver Frost had been mistaken for the correct Ford color code M1900 Thunderbird Charcoal Gray. Emmanuel's 67 GT350 was our Attitude Of The Week for May 3rd, 2009. Emmanuel has owned many Mustangs. Check them out by clicking here.

This Special Order Cream Yellow Mustang, 289ci V8, hardtop is owned by Michael Gellrich of Germany and was our Attitude Of The Week for January 17, 2010. This is a blank paint code Mustang; meaning, the car was factory painted a non-standard production color. Michael tells us more. We found the car in the Netherlands, there is a dealer who sells only Mustangs 1964-1972. It was a great looking car in our eyes and we bought the pony. At home we saw that there was a missing paint code in the VIN. After sending a chip of paint (found under the rear seat) to Marti Auto, we got the answer that the pony was painted with the special paint called "Cream". We started a search for Mustangs painted in cream, but found no other cars. Then we put our question in the vintage mustang forum and Kevin Marti wrote us that there were 5 cars (with different options) which was ordered by one dealer (Ed Chovanes Ford, San Leandro CA). So we know that we have got a very special car. The Mustang was painted over one time (we hope with the original color) and was a one owner car from San Jose.

Teri Garcia owns this Dusk Rose pink, 1967, 200 Sprint, Mustang hardtop which was our Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 31st, 2010. Teri tells us more: My Mom and Dad bought me my 1967 Mustang in 1995 (my senior year of high school). When I got my Mustang it was Red. It is a 6-cylinder 200 sport sprint with a 3 speed on the floor. We did not know what we had until my brother went to put a new stereo in the car and saw the floor boards were pink. We ran the codes and sure enough it was originally Dusk Rose. My brother really had to twist my arm to restore it back to the original color. I always wanted a red Mustang. In 2002, I finally had it restore back to it's original color. It was done just in time for my wedding. In 2007 we had the engine rebuilt, engine compartment redone, and a good bit of the suspension redone. Restoring this Mustang back to the original color was the best thing we ever did. People are so curious about it. We have so much fun meeting and talking to people about our Mustang. We have won many awards. We have two 2nd place awards and one 3rd place from the All Ford Nationals in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Nightmist Blue 1967 Mustang GT hardtop owned by Dennis Brennan East Norriton, Pennsylvania. This GT has its original S-code 390ci V8 engine and a manual transmission. It's our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 7, 2014. Dennis tells us, "I am the third owner. Owner #2 bought it in 1969. It was a daily driver until late 70s. He then parked it in his barn until the late eighties. It then had a complete restoration; floors, panels, trunk, engine rebuild, and interior. Since then, it has only left the barn for a few shows. The second owner was a good friend of mine. He passed away unexpectedly five years ago. The Mustang has sat covered in the barn until I purchased it from his widow. Due to sitting so long, it has developed a few oil leaks which we plan to take care of shortly. Otherwise, it runs great and is a blast to drive."

Comp CamShelby Hi rise manifold, ported and matched,650 Holly, Petronix 11. electronic ignition, ceramic coated try headers, polished Holly fuel pump, chrome rocker covers and air cleaner, twin exhaust system with free flow mufflers, 4 row radiator to keep all cool.

bezel and Green LCD leash lights when fitted inside the original blue dash light covers a lovely blue light is produced. Much easier to see the dash. Dash being Genuine GTA with Equipment Group option also has 6000 RPM Tachometer and centre clock which has been now fitted with quartz movement for accurate time keeping. The original radio was FM radio which was replaced with a Classic Retro Sound Radio with Ipad/phone connectivity, blue tooth amp and 4 retro speakers two are in parcel shelf and two are concealed above the transmission tunnel facing down. This was a 11 hour custom fit and produces a superb but very loud classic sound.

Rear springs have been reset, a new 5th leaf added, and again comfort shocks fitted. Outside is nice and straight Wimbledon White paint with all new chrome bumpers and bright work. New Scott Drake remote exterior drivers and passenger mirrors
have also been fitted. All glass is original with original optioned green tinted windows. Steering was the fast 16:1 ratio without power steering. Lots of feel on the road but was far was pleasant on our challenging drivers roads of Tasmania. Not wanting to change the essence or originality, the rack and pinion was passed up and an American Borgusen power steering 16:1 ratio was sourced along with a chrome Saginaw power steering pump and a full set of billet Aluminum double pulleys sourced from Summit Racing. New door rubbers and doors fully rebuilt with new window mechanisms, felt tracks and quarter vent rubbers, repinned door hinges and springs/cams. Work has started on full sound insulation (Resomat) throughout with only the trunk being completed to date. Full under carpet plus additional sound insulation will be undertaken shortly including inside of doors and under door panels to keep road noise and other noises confined to the outdoors. With Resomat it is expected that exterior noise will remain outside. New original styled wheels were ordered from the States in 15x7 for the front fitted with 225x60 and the rears with 235x60
BFG white letter tires. The remarkable Mustang is an absolute pleasure to drive and turns heads wherever it goes. It really is a classic muscle car and always work in progress which of course is great fun to work on."
