I'd say Boss 429 cars and cars equipped with the SuperCobraJet

Oh though I walk through the valley of the rice, I fear no turbo, for torque art with me.

the rarest is the 1967 Shelby GT500KR. only 1 of them was produced. The 1968 KR only had a small amount made, around 1,000. In 1967 they produced the Shelby GT500 in larger quantities but only 1 KR.

Extreme69, how could there actually be a '67 GT500 KR, when the KR was introduced mid way through the '68 model year? As far as '68 KR's go, they made 933 Fastbacks and 518 Convertibles.

Rarest and most desired, are not necessarily the same thing.

The '67 GT500 EXP Convertible would get my vote. There's only one of those.

Of course, I may be biased, because I like '67's best.

Excluding Shelby Mustangs the rarest Body style/type I was able to determine is a 1968 fastback with deluxe interior and a bench seat
Body code 63C, with total production of 256 units
Of course there are the "1 of 1" if broken down by color / options
but I dont think that was the original question

I think the rarest (lowest production numbers) would be the original prototype.

I think We have the rarest 67 Mustang ever built.

It is a Pink Car, 6 Cylinder, Coupe--Yes a Factory Coupe.

Please read this closely, and follow.

No Power Steering, Manual Brakes, Factory Air, Deluxe Interior.

All this is Standard I believe, nothing special.

Now what makes it a 1 On 1 car, only one ever made, is it has a Different Radio Knobs.

Yes,!! One knob has 20 Grooves, the other has 22 Grooves.

This makes it the only Mustang with this option---Bonified, Of Course non Documented (I have to clear this with the marty report to get a paper) 67 Mustang ever Made!!

I Guess the Engine, Transmissions, Body really are not important anymore, it is the odd ball things that make a rare cars, AM I Right??

One of the rarest surviving cars I can think of is the Green Hornet Prototype Shelby.

thinking too hard...

Wouldn't the rarest, most identifiable mustang be the Bullitt mustang which is supposedly in a barn somewhere in the mid-west.

Lots of interesting cars coming up. Neighbor had a '68' Shelby 500 KR convert, always wondered what happened to it. Anyone remember that Mustang that one of the presidents of Ford had made special for him? Maybe a 64 1/2 K code convert?

The Mustang E's would be rare too, less than 50 built from what I remember. Only offered in 69 and in the Sportsroof body with the L code motor, automatic with special torque converter and a super low 2.33 rear end. It was built for economy above anything else hence the "E" part of the name. It got special decals on the rear quaters.


(I wouldn't consider the Bullit 68 fastback rare, it was just a regular Mustang used in a movie. That's the only reason it was famous, nothing special about the car though. It was last reported to be in a barn in Kentucky. Some people collect stuff and hide it away. Just like there's a guy in North Carolina that has the wrecked gray 1966 Buick Electra that Jaine Mansfield died in stored in a barn too.)

1968 Mustang coupe, Acapulco Blue, 289 2v, C-4, Power Steering.
Hopefully a 1969 convertible or Sportsroof (non Mach or Boss) for next Mustang project

Trying to find my father's 1973 Mustang Grande he bought brand new. 3F04F126773 last known registration and title was in New Jersey, 1982.

I gotta agree with Mike on this one. Green Hornet would be the winner on rarest. Pleanty of rare ones but overall this one has my vote and is one of my favorites.
