After over 40 years this rare 1967 Mustang GT "S" code Fastback is being raised from the grave. The car was purchased years ago for the purpose of rebuilding a 67 Shelby GT500. The right rear quarter panel was removed along with most parts of the car. The Mustang was never wrecked, the remaining portions of the body are straight with rusty components in some areas. Currently the body is being prepared for reassembly with a High Performance 390 ci engine, 4 speed trans, and 370 gear 9" rear end.
