Of the ones automobiles, 71,042 devices have been Mustang Fastbacks, which represented roughly 15 p.c of the full deliveries all the way through that yr.
We don’t have any thought what number of of those Fastbacks are nonetheless alive and at the street however some of the surviving automobiles not too long ago hit the dyno to show its energy. The blue 1967 Mustang GT Fastback from the video above isn’t a inventory automobile, despite the fact that, because it options a number of vital changes.
The present proprietor of the automobile purchased the automobile when he used to be 15 years previous in April 1979. He completed the recovery on the age of 21 in 1985 when the Mustang had roughly 100,000 miles at the odometer. Since then, he’s pushed it for some other 38,000 miles.
At first, it had a four-speed transmission however that is not the case as there’s now a later style five-speed guide.

Those get started with Edelbrock aluminum heads and cross all of the manner right down to a customized straight-pipe exhaust device. So, what number of ponies are nonetheless left on this engine? Let’s see the dyno run and analyze the effects.
The dyno run is carried out in fourth tools and the output numbers display 265 horsepower (195 kilowatts) at 4,600 rpm and a large 372 pound-feet (504 Newton-meters) of torque at 2,900 rpm. The ones are no doubt cast numbers for such an old-school Mustang GT Fastback and we’re particularly inspired through the torque curve, which stays virtually flat from 2,000 to 4,5000 rpm. That is one thing you don’t see regularly on a contemporary automobile.
