If you want a 67 Fastback as a Daily Driver its going to take a lot of babying. Classics have a problem w/ overheating. Either get a fixer upper and do a frame off resto or buy one that was taken real good car of and replace high wear parts.

I looked into doing this but i ended up going with the modern car for the safety and you can do more w/ them aftermarket.

you can daily drive a 67 just fine, it wont be as safe, it wont be cheap to upkeep, etc

what ever cost you are looking at to rebuild or get it fixed up, multiply that by 4 or more times and add in about that much time then you will get close lol, fixing up older cars never goes as planned lol.

You can daily drive a 67 no problem. If you're going to drag race it also, then it may a problem.
The point made earlier about cost is just the reality of a classic car. You can't buy everything you need at the local auto parts store. Depending on what you need, sometimes it takes a couple of different online Mustang stores to get all your parts. Once you get it up to specs and dependable, it's not a real issue. You just have to understand that it takes more planning when replacing parts and things never go as planned.

If u do a fox body fuel injected 5.0 swap it will be a great dd
I replaced my 289 for a fox 5.0 but I went carb. If go back to fuel injection will this make it a better daily driver? That way I don't have to sell my car...

I was considering a classic fastback too , but the cons outweight the pros , still I love the look of the 1967 Fastback GT , pure beauty. The problem with those Mustangs is that they brake poor , handle poorly , don't have air bags etc... , they are basically a sunday driver not daily . One could somewhat modernize them but then they won't be a " CLASSIC" anymore , just my two cents.

Hi Saleen ,
I was wondering if you bought the 1967 Fastback ?
I live in Kuwait and was wondering if it would be possible to have a look at it, I explain you why , my grandfather was living in Morocco many many years ago and was the first person in this country to impoert a Mustang from the US and it was a 1967 Fastback 8 cylinders.
I have always heard my dad talking about this car and he is coming to visit me in Kuwait from the 4th of March this year.
I would love to make a surprise for him and find a Fastback to take some pictures.
Please let me know if it would be possible, it would be really really nice from you.
Regards
Paul

I think the only fastback I'm going to buy while in college will probably be 71-73 :(
I've almost given up hope on finding a 69 fb :(
I'll get a good education and buy a dynacorn shell XD

All for the education!

But I was considering the dynacorn route until I priced it out. Without a donor, it would be ridiculously expensive. That being said, when it comes time to really dig into the body work on my FB, I might be better off just getting a new shell and starting with a fresh canvas if I have the room. Man, how much fun would that be?!

It seems like every fb around here that I've seen is either way out of my price range, or rusted to bits :(

I may make a road trip just to buy one in 3 yrs or so :p

Rusted to bits = cheap.

Value after Restore of said rust bucket = $$$$$$

Pride/joy in doing the restoration yourself = priceless.
