A great man for sure.  Thank you Jim for all your encouragement and time spent.  You were a big inspiration to me and will be surely missed.

God Bless your Family

Wanted to Buy / Re: Wanted: 67 toploader trans, RUG-N or N-1, for GT350
« on: December 15, 2020, 05:48:24 PM »
Looking for 67 Close ratio toploader transmission correct for a GT350, Mar 67 build date. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Brian
Brian,
I believe the correct transmission for a 3/22/67 build would be an HEH BX. The RUG N was only used for very late cars.
Dave

Dave,

Can you confirm when the RUG- started in production?  How difficult is the HEX-BC to find compared th the RUG-?  Depending on the response I may have a case available for the OP

The '67 K code Mustangs have always had my attention. It's hard to believe there is no registry already underway.

Recently I started gathering Marti ELITE Reports. (The DELUXE reports don't offer enough info for these cars)
It's an attempt to get a breakdown in the numbers past the body styles and transmissions, into the paint and trim.
It's going to be a long time before I can fill in the blanks on such a low production Mustang with only 489 produced.

I have my full Build Sheet - do you have any of those?  I could share that information with you PM me

Is 472 the recognized production figure for '67 K Codes and how many are we thinking still exist.  Thx.

Survivor - OP  :)

Deserves credit for getting this started. 

I've seen more conversation with 67 K's on SAAC Forum than anywhere else. Having a "67 K" in "The Cars" area would be a BIG help for us.  Can this happen on SAAC Forum?

Looks like less than .01% of the almost 500,000 were 67 K Codes.  Could these be the rarest High Performance engine combo of any Mustang? 

Like any statement depends on how it is phrased. "Any Mustang"  "Any Production Mustang" "Any Mustang built"  "Any Mustang to get into public ownership" ;)

Rarest High Performance engine combo in any Mustang woulds have to include allot of one of's like the Boss 302 1969 Shelby, 71 Boss 302, Many of the Slat Flat racers, some of the experimental cars assembled

I'd like to see the stats on how they compare to other "Production" Mustangs of the era.  Pretty sure less were made than any 69 or 70 Boss 302 / 429 cars or 68 CJ's (except for the race units).  Certainly less than any 65-66 Hipo

If I'm reading it correctly "The 289 high Performance Mustang"  by Tony Gregory Fourth Edition - Print 2006 has the following statistics:

73 Known to exist 1967 K Code Mustangs

Don't forget the "X" Code 68 - but not High Performance :D

It depends on how you define “rare” 🤪

I guess for this topic rare would be determined by quantity produced -vs- total production for 67's.  What makes the car stand apart from the rest of production being the 289 High Performance engine.  So, maybe break down by % of all 67 Mustangs using the engine codes as factor.  Probable less than 3% of 100's of thousands 67 Mustangs = pretty rare!

Yes I'm just amazed how rare these cars are.   I remember Vern had a Nightmist 67 K for sale about a year ago.   Absolutely beautiful restoration and pretty sure it had the Competition Suspension.  It would be an interesting registry and have always been fascinated by the 67 K's.  Think they are among the rarest Mustangs ever made?

I have one  :) - Its an Acapulco Blue GT Fastback with deluxe interior, both consoles and non-fold down.  I'd like to get a registry together for these cars like SAAC has for the 65-70 Shelbys

The 289 High Performance book out years ago had the 67's listed and out of the total production it was not many known.  If I recall it was less than 10%.  It may be easier to gather that information now and update with the web's reach

I am in the market for another Ford GT.  I'm looking for a car with miles I wont mind driving occasionally.  If you know of such a car with under 40K miles and over 10K send me a PM with details.  Will consider any color and some history okay but no to salvage.

Thanks
Shawn

     Summit sells the Yukon type center section.  It has the rebuildable plates for the equal lock.
  OK, suggestions welcome


Understand Yukon product is made in India.  It is a fair value for the price.  But I wouldn't put their stuff in my vehicle if you gave it to me.  My firm does business with Mark Williams Enterprises.  In my experience it is the best engineered and manufactured Ford 9" vendor.  Voice of experience, a Detroit Locker can be dicey on slippery pavement.  Good reference in Carroll Smith's book, Engineer To Win.


I purchased and installed a Yukon locking rear and new ring pinion for Ford 9".  This was set up with all new bearings etc.  It was very very noisy we removed and rebuilt again with the same products = same results.  The job was performed by a professional and I will never buy Yukon again.  Cost savings were not worth it
