Facing stiff competition from Chevrolet's new Camaro, the Mustang was restyled for 1967 with a longer, wider body but retained the same short deck/long hood look that made the original such a success.  Detail changes included a larger radiator grille while the rear panel was now concave.  Under the skin, Ford revised the Mustang's front suspension, resulting in better handling and an improved ride.  The optional front disc brakes came with power assistance and the '67 was the first Mustang to use a dual hydraulic brake system.  The range of engines offered remained essentially the same as for 1966 save for the addition of the 390-cid big block, with the classic small-block 289-cid V8 still the most popular choice of performance-oriented buyers.  Inside the '67 Mustang boasted a new dash with a host of new options including a fold-down rear seat added to increase luggage space in the fastback model.  Once again, three different body styles were offered including the hardtop coupe, fastback coupe and ragtop convertible.  One of the more sought after options available on the car was the GT Equipment Group, a package that included power front disc brakes, dual exhausts (with chrome quad outlets) and grille-mounted fog lamps.  The 390-cid unit had a four-barrel Holley 600-cfm carburettor and developed a very healthy 320 hp at 4600 rpm, with bags of torque, turning Ford's Ponycar into a real street fighter.  Combining the S-Code big-block V8 engine and GTA package makes this car a very desirable Mustang indeed, with an estimated 1900 built in 1967.  Although the Mustang may have been under threat from new challengers, the original Pony Car continued to reign supreme in 1967, with almost half a million finding customers that year, of which the majority were hardtops.  Always a fantastic choice for the classic car buyer wanting a good looking, affordable piece of American muscle, the Mustang remains a perennial favourite.
