designers began drawing up a larger versions even as the original was
achieving sales success, and while "Iacocca later complained about the Mustang's growth, he did
oversee the 1967 redesign.". From 1967 until 1973, the Mustang got bigger but not
necessarily more powerful. The revised Mustang retained the original body
structure but styling was refreshed, giving the Mustang a more massive look overall.
Front and rear end styling was more pronounced, and the "twin cove"
instrument panel offered a thicker crash pad, and larger gauges. Hardtop,
fastback and convertible body styles continued as before. Federal safety
features were standard that year, including an energy-absorbing steering
column and wheel, 4-way emergency flashers, and softer interior knobs. For
1968 models, the 1967 body style continued, but with revised side scoops,
steering wheel, and gas caps. Side marker lights were also added that year,
and cars built after January 1, 1968 included shoulder belts for both front
seats. The 1968 models also introduced a new V8 engine, the 302. This
small-block engine was designed for Federal emissions standards that were
to take effect, and ended up being used in a large number of other Ford
vehicles for many decades - including most styles of Mustang until 1995.

512 Road Race Mustang @ Laguna Seca - Corkscrew Invitational 2010
My 1967 Mustang Fastback
dedicated Road Race car @ Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca for the Corkscrew
Invitational Race - September 18/19 2010.
The car has gone through many changes since the last posted videos. The
front suspension has been completely redesigned to allow wider front tires
and improved suspension geometry. The engine is essentially the same,
though now uses a belt drive for the camshaft rather than a timing chain.
This event was great fun. It had been ~12 years since this car was driven
at Laguna Seca due to the strict sound restrictions at the track. This
event was held on one of the allowed open sound weekends and was a great
success. Thanks to Hooked On Driving, the Nor-Cal Shelby Club, and the
other clubs that made this event happen.
This particular footage is from the session before the race on Sunday.
Unfortunately the camera stopped after a lap or two of the race, so I don't
have complete footage. We did finish in first place, with a very fast
Panoz in a close second. It was a great race, I passed the Panoz cleanly
in turn 9, and worked hard to stay in front for the last three or so laps.
This is the same video file as my last upload, this time using a much
