1967 ‘High Country’ Mustang
One of the very first special editions offered by Ford for their Mustang range was the “High Country”. It was first produced in 1966 and available only from dealers in the Colorado area. 333 examples were built.
In 1967, Denver dealers raised the order to 416 units. The High Country Special could be ordered with any Mustang powertrain and body style but were only available in three unique colours of Aspen Gold, Columbine Blue, and Timberline Green.
104 of these specials are known to the High Country Registry to still exist. As far as we know this Coupe in Columbine blue 1967 is the only example to have reached the UK, having been imported from Arizona in early 2019. As a result you get both an instantly recognisable “bucket list” car and exclusivity at the same time for your wedding day.
The car was ordered new with the white vinyl roof and trunk rack that it carries today. The seats are two tone blue and the car benefits from 2 rear lap belts along with lap belts up front. It was previously owned by a Hollywood stunt man who often rented it to the studios for a background vehicle in movies.
Much has been spent on this car shortly before it was imported. The engine bay features the original freshly rebuilt 289ci Windsor small block Ford 4.7L, V8. It has a rebuilt automatic transmission, new rear axle with rear 11” disc brakes and new suspension.
