1967 Ford Mustang 331ci 4-Speed Terlingua Race Car Tribute
This 1967 Ford Mustang is a C-code coupe that has been modified in the style of the Shelby-prepared Mustangs campaigned by the Terlingua Racing Team in the late 1960s, particularly in the SCCA Trans-Am series. Finished in yellow with a black hood and stripes, the car is powered by a 331ci V8 linked to a four-speed manual transmission and a 9? rear axle with a Detroit Locker differential. The interior has been stripped and fitted with a roll cage and a Sparco bucket seat as well as a fire-suppression system, custom switchgear, and Stewart-Warner gauges. Other features include 15×8.5? American Racing wheels, a modified suspension, chassis bracing, four-wheel disc brakes, a fuel cell, and a dual exhaust system with electric bypasses. The current owner acquired the car in 2018, and it was last used at a track day in 2020. This modified Mustang is now offered with a build sheet, service records, a $55k receipt from 2019, and a salvaged California title.
Under current ownership, the car was refinished in yellow with black stripes in the style of the Shelby-prepped Mustangs used by the Terlingua Racing Team and driver Jerry Titus, and touch-up paintwork was performed in 2019. The car features period-style graphics, a black hood with pins, a racing-style front valance, no factory badging, and no bumpers. The dual exhaust system has exits at the rear of the car as well as megaphone-style side pipes that can be enabled via electric muffler bypasses. The car does not have side glass.
Gray-finished 15×8.5? American Racing wheels are mounted with Goodyear Blue Streak tires, and each corner is equipped with disc brakes. The ride height has been lowered, and the chassis has been modified with T&D Hi-Po Motors competition rear roller leaf springs, torque boxes, extended shock-tower caps, square frame stiffeners welded under the car, and a Monte Carlo bar and an export brace in the engine bay.
The interior has been stripped and refinished in black, and a roll cage as well as a single fixed-back Sparco bucket seat with red Sparco harnesses have been added. Equipment includes a fire-suppression system, a five-panel rearview mirror, custom driver switchgear, a manual brake-proportioning valve, and a roller-bearing clutch and brake-pedal assembly.A three-spoke steering wheel is mounted to a collapsible steering column from a 1968 Mercury Cougar. Black Stewart-Warner instrumentation includes an 8k-rpm tachometer paired with five auxiliary gauges; no speedometer or odometer are present, and true chassis mileage is unknown. The heater and the glovebox have also been removed.
A 22-gallon Pyrotect fuel cell is mounted in the trunk along with the battery.
The 331ci V8 is said to have been built by Rebello Racing of Antioch, California, has a redline of 7,060 rpm, and utilizes a Holley 650-cfm four-barrel carburetor.
Power is delivered to the wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a 9? rear axle with a Detroit Locker differential and a 3.75:1 final-drive ratio.
A number of receipts will accompany the vehicle, including a 16-page invoice from 2019 for nearly $55k in work performed by Revival Road Co. of Carmel Valley, California. This included overhauling the fuel, cooling, and electrical systems as well as installing the fire-suppression system, seat, and harnesses; conducting brake and suspension work; repairing the underside; and replacing ignition components, transmission parts, and the exhaust.
The California title is branded “salvaged,” and a redacted image of the document is provided in the gallery.
