The 1967 Mustang Fastback – An American Classic

When the 1967 Mustang Fastback first arrived on the “muscle car” scene, it was a result of a completely redesigned classic, different in many ways.

About Ford Mustang History

FordMustangHistory.com is not a website for diehard car nuts who spew words like compression ratios, gear ratios, and such.
