Limited Edition 400
The 1967 Limited Edition 400 is a special model for the Chicagoland area as the newspaper advertisements state. They were painted deep metallic gold, had louvered hoods, wheel lip and deck lid lip metal trim, deluxe wheel covers, Limited Edition 400 fender emblems, and a Limited Edition 400 owners name dash plate.

Here is a rare one! It's a Deep Metallic Gold 1967 Mustang Limited Edition 400. It was sent in by site visitor, Gary, who noticed that we didn't have any photos of a Limited Edition 400 Mustang. These photos were taken soon after purchasing it new in 1967. He purchased it for his soon-to-be wife from C. Bradshaw, Inc. in Harvey, Illinois. Thanks Gary! Gary tells us more, "It was a special gold color with black vinyl top. It had black leather bucket seats with a 289 V8 with auto transmission and a floor console shifter. It had a 'Limited Edition 400' emblem on each of the front fenders. Everyone thought that it meant 400 cubic inches, but actually it designated a limited edition model of 400 cars for the Chicago market. A very sharp car and fun to drive. We eventually traded it in for a new Ford Maverick (DUMB)."

Could this be one of the Chicagoland 1967 Limited Edition 400 Mustangs? A viewer sent us this photo set of his Mustang with a non-standard gold paint under the later added white. It also has rear panel holes where a badge might have been. A Marti report might confirm more since the door data tag is missing due to a door replacement.
