'67 K Codes
« on: December 09, 2020, 11:05:18 AM »
Is 472 the recognized production figure for '67 K Codes and how many are we thinking still exist.  Thx.

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

Try to find a 67 K code with competition suspension package option. Basically all of the Shelby suspension add ons and even had 15 inch wheels with high speed rated tires. Also a special shifter if a automatic (just like Shelby).

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?

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!

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? 

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

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 had an X code coupe. Unfortunately, it was not salvageable. I cut it up and threw it away one small part at a time.

I recall reading somewhere the 67 289 Hipo engine option cost nearly twice as much than ordering the larger cubed 390 higher horsepower engine.  I would guess most folks went for more horsepower and saved money in 67 possibly.  I probably would have done the same thing! I am a big fan of the 67 K-codes and feel they have been somewhat underappreciated over the years. I have owned a couple but never had one with the Competition Suspension. They are definitely the rarest one's to find for 67.

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

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

I found a Marti report on the web for a 67K code fastback

472,209 Mustangs produced in 1967
71,062 were fastbacks, of them,
319 were built with the Hi-Po engine
205 came with a 4-speed manual transmission

Add in coupes and converts I think the total K code Mustang build was a little over 400 in 1967

I think Ford directed most of the Hi-Po engines to Shelby in 1967

I’d love to buy a 67 K if anyone was aware of one for sale.

There is a 67 K fastback up by Chicago.
Guy has owned it forever.
Was going to trade him some hipo parts for a C8 or C9 351 W.
But he thought W parts were worth more than HiPo parts.
