The ’67 Mustang: Added Power And Size

The Ford Mustang hit the ground running and it was so influential that it spawned a number of vehicles that were designed in an effort to cash in on the success of the “pony car” concept. The Ford Barracuda was one of the competitors, along with the Mercury Cougar and the Pontiac Firebird.

General Motors was also adding the Chevrolet Camaro to the fray in 1967, so Ford was motivated to take steps to improve the Mustang and they chose to make it bigger and more powerful for the 1967 model year.
