When we found seven Ford Mustang Fastbacks for sale that were all being offered by the same seller, we went into detective mode and what we found left us in awe. When we featured a field of Mustangs a year ago we were amazed at the sight, but that was nothing compared to this graveyard in Colorado. The seven Mustangs that caught our attention can be found here on eBay.
There has to literally be hundreds of Mustangs in this salvage yard. Even if you’re not interested in buying one of these cars, this could be a great place to go to get parts. It looks like they may have a few cars that aren’t Mustangs thrown in the mix too. We could easily spend a day just walking around looking at all these Pony cars.
The Fastbacks are in varying condition, but are mostly rough and missing components. Some of the bodies and frames are intact enough to be salvaged, but the majority are likely best used as parts cars. There are a couple of cars that still have their original 289 cui V8s and complete drivetrains and could make for good projects.
Of these Fastbacks four are ’67s and three are ’68s. For the ’67 model year, Ford redesigned the Mustang and gave it a more aggressive look. The new look came with a cost though, in the form of weight gains. The same engine options were offered with no gains in power to compensate for the added weight.
It always makes us sad to see great cars being picked clean of their vital components, but it’s a necessity to save other cars. It is an impressive sight to see so many Pony cars gathered in one location and would be worth a trip to Colorado to see. Are the Fastbacks salvageable or just parts cars?
