67 mustang


I live in Australia and my Grandfather lives in US. I'm thinking of going over there to visit him in about 6-8 months, now while i'm over there i'm going to need a car to get around. Rather then hire one i'm going to buy one. Now there is no way i would pass up this chance to own such a icon.

Now my question is what are the major probs with the 67 mustang and what prices are they roughy going for with roadworthy (don't know what you call them over there)

Also are there any good internet sites that have cars for sale. My budget is $3,000AUD which equals out to be roughly $1,500 -$1,600 US. are there any good deals to be had or am i dreaming?

For $1500 you will get a car with rust and basic maintance problems. A car that I would pick up for that I would plan on another $600-1000 to get it on the road. also, cops over here don't like people without drivers licence. Don't know what it takes to get a transfer or temp on, but look into it. Take a look as some sites like autotrader.com for cars in his area. You can search by price and get a better idea. While you are at it could you throw a 73 xb gt falcon in your carryon for me!

As an Aussie who went to the US and spent some time driving around, I got an International Licence here in Australia (NRMA/RACV/ETC for around 35 bucks), I also took my Australian driving licence across as well. I got pulled over and showed both to the cop and had no dramas. I would also carry my passport as well just to be extra sure.

I would do a search on the web, I remember looking years ago and there was not very much for that price. My crappy looking 66 Coupe cost 4500 US dollars and she needs paint and a few small dings knocked out.

Depending on which state you are going to visit (California & Florida), why not try an hire a new 2002 Cobra for a week or so. Bound to be more fun and comfy than the old 67.

Used to be Mustang1966coupe.

66 Silver Frost Mustang 289 Windsor
71 XY GS Fairmont in Bronze Wine 302 Windsor
92 EB XR8 302 Windsor

Sure do love those Windsors

I agree. If you are not taking this car back with you to restore, then rent a new Cobra.
