San Francisco Street Sighting - 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback
special feature for Steve McQueen's birthday last year, fittingly finished in dark green. This one showed up behind Cowden Automotive in downtown San Francisco following last spring's Arcane Auto Society meetup. I wouldn't call it an arcane auto by any stretch; certainly not like the Amphicar and custom Berkeley roadster I shot near the same repair shop at previous Arcane Auto meets. This Mustang is a straightforward example with classic red paint, black interior, Deluxe wheelcovers and original (or almost original) California black license plates. A 289 small block V8 powers the car, but I have no clue what transmission. I'm curious how recent the paintwork is and what color it was originally. The red is loud but it works. I dig it!
