1967 Fastback 390 this was my first new car!

$2,692 Standard Fastback

Feeling pressure from their competition, Ford needed to make the Mustang more powerful so it could keep up with its competitors. The answer came in the form of a larger car. Although the wheelbase remained the same at 108 inches, the length of the vehicle was increased by two inches resulting in 183.6 inches from front to back. The car also featured a front-suspension track that was widened by 2.5 inches. The increased body size allowed Ford to put their first big-block engine in a Mustang. This optional 390-cubic-inch 6.4L V-8 motor was capable of producing an impressive 320 hp. As such, Ford was clearly able to keep up with the big dogs on the road. In fact, according to reports, the 390 cid equipped Mustang could achieve 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds with a top speed of 115 mph.
