2014 Classic Car Raffle in support of The Thunder Bay Historical Museum
91.5 CKPR is proud to present the 2014 Classic Car Raffle in support of The Thunder Bay Historical Museum
The Thunder Bay Museum’s 1967 Mustang raffle is now sold out!
Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket. The money raised will keep our programs and exhibits going for another year.
Come join us as we draw the winning ticket on September 8th at Intercity Shopping Centre.
Good luck to all ticketholders and thanks to all of the Thunder Bay Museum supporters who help us continue to make history!
Beautifully-restored to GT Equipment Group specifications in 2000, this 1967 Mustang Fastback is a joy to drive. Its numbers-matching 289cid V8, complete with a 4-barrel Motorcraft AFB carb, headers, working Boss hood scoop, and dual exhaust gives it superb acceleration, while a new electronic ignition ensures easy starts. Disc brakes help it stop on a dime. An upgraded front suspension, extra leaf springs at the rear and traction bars make this car handle the road like few other Mustangs. The odometer shows just 110,600 miles. A recent appraisal notes that the hood, doors and trunk are properly fitted and fender areas free of obvious imperfections. The metallic paint is in good condition with no signs of rippling or orange peel. A few, very minor, paint flaws on the hood can only be seen on close inspection. The colour is Candy Apple Red. The black hood scoop (fully functional) and front spoiler were not standard on this car, but they look great. Also available for installation, should you wish, is a 1969 rear window louver. It rides on Cooper Cobra G/T white-letter radials (235/60 R14 front and rear) mounted on Rally rims and hubcaps (all in great shape). Inside, a new deluxe black interior was installed when the car was restored a few years ago; a single tear on the front seat is the only obvious flaw. This 1967 Mustang Fastback is a high quality, fully-restored, modern classic that begs to be driven. It’s been well maintained and reconditioned to keep it roadworthy, reliable and stunning to look at.
