Very sweet Mustang and just shows you do not necessarily need an all-out BBF to have fun driving.  I would love to cruise around in that one.

Very nice! I like that you kept the six.  Too many converted to V8!

I used to have a 65 Barracuda with a slant six 3 speed. I’d get a lot of odd comments at shows!

Sweet Pony...........😎

 

Our family car in 1968 when I was 4 years old was a 67 Mustang coupe 6-banger. That car started my love of Mustang's.

COOL!!! What is your fuel/carb set up??

I ask as I pulled my 68 Mustang coupe from storage today. It has sat for 5 years and I need to restore or sell. It has the 2200/6 and it is in GREAT condition, less than 5K miles since a rebuild. But the carb top gaskets have failed so I need a new carb.....and they ain't cheap! I could rebuilt but I am not sure if I want to chance it. 

Again great looking car.....PS mine has the factory front bench seat...ever see one???

Thank you your right and i do love the old school way today it's about showing off the car not how fast you can go the 6 was hopped up a bit but not looking for speed.

Thanks that was one of the things that brought Mr Gene Winfield to look at the car and i have always had a thing for 6's you can do a lot with them this one is built up a bit that took it from the factory 120HP to 185HP not a lot but good enough to sound like a V-8 i have a friend that has a 65 Cuda with the slant 6 in it he built it up a bit to it's a one sweet car his is gold with the black inside and the black strip down the center of the car.

The factory 1br carb are up there in price but you can have them rebuilt for around $90 bucks  or do what i did i got the simple plate that just bolts right to the log intake and put a webber 2br 36/38 it's all a bolt on deal i went right to Webber and got the carb for $119.00 and the plate from clifford for $70.00 and it was one of the things that brought up the HP as well.

I got my header from Clifford to put a true dual pipe system on the car it sounds like a 289 or 302 till up open the hood people just look and i smile they have the carb plate for the webber but they charge $589 for the carb when the one i had got some big problems is when i went right to webber on line and got the carb for $119 bucks and they set them up for a 6 at the factory for you.

It'd be worth more as a good runner. What's a 2200/6?

Cheers,

My first car was a '67 coupe at 17. It was pretty rusty and I had no money to restore it, unfortunately. 6 cylinder with 3 speed. The only option it had on it was an A.M. no power anything.
