Revved Up and Ready: Custom 1967 Ford Mustang Teeters on the Edge of Flipping!

Flipping cars is an art that most motoring enthusiasts look at wondering if they could try their hand at.

On the surface, reselling a classic car for a profit sounds like easy money, but that’s usually far from the case.

In its latest YouTube video, Classic Nation attempts to fix up and resell a beautiful 1967 Ford Mustang within a 30-day timeframe with the hopes of making $10,000 profit.

But with several issues needing addressing, such a short deadline is surely an optimistic target.

A 1967 Ford Mustang Is A Good Car To Flip On The Used Market

If there was ever a car that would be an easy model to flip, a 1967 Ford Mustang.

An iconic model, the pony car is world renowned, and therefore in high demand, thanks to amazing styling and dynamic characteristics.

Though with a long list of modifications, this car provides an even better base in the quest to flip it for profit.

In the opening minutes of the video, the pair goes over everything that makes this Mustang unique including the so-called ‘Shelby drop’ stance meaning the front end sits slightly lower than standard and the rear leaf springs which also drop the car a bit.

As well as the modified suspension configuration, the car has aftermarket disc brakes, Corbeau bucket seats, an all-new stereo system, an LCD screen fitted into the dashboard, stylish 17-inch wheels.

All in all, these modifications make this Mustang a great restomod car.

That doesn’t mean the car is market-ready though.

With a simple primer, the car will need a total respray, with gloss black being the favored color choice.

Secondly, the dashboard has a large crack which the boys will have to replace; a relatively low cost of $160.

A few noises around the engine will also require attention while a knocking chassis towards the rear of the car also catches the guys’ eyes.

Once again though, this car looks like a great base for a simple fix and flip.

Under the hood, the crate engine is a blend of a 302 base with several 289 elements.

With plenty of modifications however, it breaks the mold of any Ford Mustang engine, especially with several mods bringing the car into the 21st century such as an electric fan, an external starter.

On start-up, there are a few unwanted noises as the Ernst brothers point out, but on the whole, it sounds brilliant, in part thanks to the custom exhaust.

As the brothers take the car out on a drive, they point out several things one has to look out for when buying a car.

Whether the car has power steering, functioning dials and the car’s tracking are all things to check for when going on a test drive in an older car.

With the guys spending $11,500 on the car and planning on investing a further $4,250 on getting it into a condition worthy to get sold, they will have to sell it for a grand total of $26,000 to reach their goal of $10k profit.

We wish them the best of luck in hitting that target
