Footnotes

  • This is an original California built and owned Mustang that has spent its entire life in this warm state's sympathetic climate. Boasting the optional 'GT' package and 390ci (6.4-litre) V8 engine, it was the ultimate Mustang of its day.

    Built at Ford's San Jose assembly plant in California, the car was sold new out of Santa Monica Ford having been released to the dealer on the 6th February 1967. The Mustang was used by two private owners before being put into storage for nearly three decades. Refreshed and re-commissioned in the 2002, it was imported into the UK in the summer of 2014 displaying a mere 28,180 miles on the odometer. This mileage is believed to be correct but is undocumented.

    Since its arrival in the UK, the Mustang has undergone a detailed restoration to return it to its former glory, focusing on absolute originality. This highly original example retains all of its original sheet metal work, the only exceptions being the battery tray area and the bonnet (body date codes confirmed this during restoration). The entire drive train likewise is original. We are advised that the engine was not stamped with the VIN as was customary in early 1967 production. Serialised for production on the 25th January 1967, the cylinder block bears its correct '7A10' casting number, signifying 7th January 1967. The original GT exhaust manifolds are marked '7A11' (11th January 1967) and '7A9' (9th January 1967) while the original GT inlet manifold is marked '6L15' (15th December 1966).

    This is an exceptionally rare vehicle with a particularly generous factory specification as documented by the accompanying Marti Report. The car came with the following options: GT equipment group; white paint stripe; closed crankcase emission system; exhaust emission control; power steering; C-6 select-shift Cruise-o-Matic transmission; styled steel wheels; F70-14 wide oval tyres; white sidewall nylon tyres; tinted glass; and the exterior decor group. The interior was equipped with the courtesy light group; centre console; deluxe steering wheel; sport deck folding rear seat; tilt-away steering wheel with adjustable column; Selectaire air conditioning; AM/8-track stereo radio; interior decor group; and deluxe seat belts.

    'NDB 489E' has been sympathetically restored to resemble the green Mustang GT 390 Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 blockbuster film, Bullitt. Given that this car started life as a Dark Moss Green GT 390 Fastback, very few modifications were required and all are reversible. Great care was taken during this restoration to enable any future owner to return the vehicle to its stock appearance with ease.

    During restoration the fully functioning air pump and emission equipment, together with the air conditioner, were remove and retained; both are included in the sale, as is the original GT front light bar with integrated fog lamps. All documentation comes with the car including the all-important Marti Report and recent restoration receipts totalling £45,000+VAT.
