Looking at a 1967 Mustang that is rather obscure or uncommon.
Its a coupe (not Fastback), but its a factory S-code 390 4V and Top Loader 4 speed and 9" inch rear.
The car is a "standard" coupe....not a GT.
Marti report says only 1100 or so ever built like this (this would be like the Chevy equivelent of a 396 Camaro thats not an SS!!), and its a factory "Raven Black" paint car with red interior.

Could this oddity in mostly restored condition bring $15-20K??

Yep absolutely!!! Hell 6 cyl. cars are going for the lower end of that price. I missed one like that years ago. It was a 390/4speed GT coupe in a junk yard running and clean but the clutch was shot. 850.00 I still kick myself over that one!!!

The 1100 production number you cite is apparently related to the "options" on this particular '67. According to "Marti", there were actually 2,932 '67 Mustangs built with the 390/4-Speed combination.

That having been said, I submit this car is still relatively rare and COULD bring the type of money you quote for the "right" buyer.

...my $.02.

No the one that really haunts me is a 70 Torino Cj 4 spd. yellow with black interior, sport slats, with 32,000 miles during the "gas crunch" at a Ford dealer for 1,100.00 sticker he said he would take 1,000.00 was traded on a pinto!!! I still have nightmares about that one!!!!

Well, Im thinkin that I just may pick this thing up!! The price is right, and he's throwing in a bunch of new parts like all new weather stripping, new factory style wiring, etc.
He says its numbers matching, I have not checked to verify, but I did check out the VIN and its legit.
Bodywork is already done except for the front fenders, and the engine is rebuilt, but not to stock specs.
The heads are ported with SS valves, it has Speed Pro forged pistons, and Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Holley 780 carb, Comp Cam, FPA ceramic coated headers and Flowmasters.
No rust anywhere that I can see, very straight and solid.

I figure I can get it, finish putting it together, paint it, and sell it.

The coupe thing will hurt the value to the general public but....there are a fair amount of big block coupe fanatics out there and the fact that it is a bare bones S code 4 spd car already has them salivating if any of them are following this thread.I would try to get it as original as possible.

There should be a partial VIN stamped on the rear upper left side of the block.
You should easily get $20k for it even in a amateur restoration. Black and red interior it certainly does have the right colour combo.

Let us know how much you pick it up for when it is all said and done. Sounds like a cool find.

You might be able to flip it without touching it. I would love to have a matching 67 gt 390/ 4 speed coupe for my son.
