Facing stiff competition from Chevrolet's new Camaro, the Mustang was restyled for season 1967. The body was longer and wider but the hallmark long bonnet/short tail look that proved so popular on the original 1964 ½ Mustangs was retained. So, too, were the three variants – Hardtop Coupe, Fastback and Convertible. An upgraded front-end produced better handling and a more serene ride. The 1967 ’Stang was was the first of the breed with a dual hydraulic brake system and the optional front discs were now power-assisted. The range of engines offered remained essentially the same as for 1966 save for the addition of the S-Code 390 cubic-inch big block, often known as the ‘Thunderbird 390’ in Australia due to the Galaxie 390 thus promoted. Inside the ’67s got a new dash with plenty of new options including a fold-down rear seat to increase luggage space in the Fastback variant.  The 390 had a four-barrel Holley 600-cfm carburettor and developed healthy 320 brake horsepower at 4600 rpm, with copious torque. Despite facing new challengers, the original Pony Car continued to dominate in 1967, with almost half a million finding customers that year. As the prices of many classic cars skyrocket, Mustangs remain relatively affordable, in part because of the sheer numbers made.
