1967 Mustang Fastback
This great little Filly was built May 31st, 1967 at the San Jose, California Assembly plant. On June 21st, 1967, Mr. Richard M. Anderson of Richardson, Texas, bought this Mustang at Ken Moore Ford, Richardson, Texas.
Mr. Anderson drove the car until sometime in 1969 when he sold this Mustang to R. Thompson. Mr. Thompson subsequently moved to Oklahoma City. During a four-year period his son drove the car back and forth to O.S.U. at Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 1980 Mr. Anderson parked the car in his garage where it remained until Spring of 1989.
In 1989, Mike Ward bought the Mustang and did some minor engine work, transmission work, had a inexpensive paint job applied to the car. Vintage Burgundy is the original color from the factory.
I bought the car on August 27th, 1993. In 1994 we completely replaced the entire suspension, and installed a new Black-Standard interior. The Holley 4V was also rebuilt. In 1996/97, Ray Milner Body Shop, Edmond, Oklahoma, took the car down to bare metal, completely repainted the car the original color and applied clear coat. At the same time, Dan Dages of Newcastle Oklahoma completely rebuilt the motor. He installed a 351-W H.O. cam, stainless steel hardened value seats, a Melling oil pump, Edelbrock valve springs, crane cams-roller rockers, Milodon High volume water pump, Offenhauser (Aluminum) Intake Manifold, set of Tri Y Headers, with stainless header bolts. We installed a new Detroit locker and changed the rear-end to 3.00:1. We also installed a "Shift Kit" in the C-4 Automatic Transmission. This little filly came with power steering and in-dash A/C.
This little Filly is driven about 1500 miles per year. Now that everthing is done, she loves to get out on the open Oklahoma prairie and run and run. When Ford Motor Company built these fine little cars back in the 60's, they did have a "Better Idea" and we are all glad today that they did.
