Rick and Elizabeth are a Ford family currently owners of 3 awesome Mustangs, but today we are going to tell you the story of this rowdy 427 FE powered 1967 Mustang Coupe. It all started in 2014, when a friend of Rick who is a passionate 427 FE guy came across the car on FE network classified. Rick took a long trip flying from Calgary to Toronto and then to Newark, NJ. Then he drove to Harrisburg, PA to see and test drive the Mustang. Rick loved the car, made a deal and returned home to arrange the logistics.
