1967 Mustang Differentials

Differentials

Most 1967 Mustang’s came standard with an open rear end. The open design evenly distributes power and torque to each wheel. It also allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds, allowing the vehicle to turn easily. This design limits the torque applied to each wheel based on the amount of power needed by the wheel with the least resistance. That’s why if you do a burnout in a vehicle with an open rear end, one tire spins wildly burning rubber, while the other tire may appear to be stationary. Each wheel is receiving power equally based on the wheel that has least resistance.

1967 Differentials

Open, Locked or Limited Slip Differential

Although a locked differential was an option for the 1967 Mustang, it’s estimated that fewer than 5% of Mustangs were ordered with this feature. A locked differential reduces the likelihood of being stuck in sand, gravel, rain or snow because power and torque is always evenly distributed to each wheel regardless of the resistance each wheel encounters. The only downside to a locked differential is that turning can be quite difficult, as the rear wheels lock and cannot rotate freely at different speeds.

A limited slip differential, or Equa-Lock, as Ford called it, was an option for select Mustangs. It was even standard equipment on the 1967 GT. The limited slip differential combines the best features of the open differential and the locked differential. This design allows both wheels to turn freely. However, if one wheel starts slipping and encounters less resistance than the other, power is then redistributed to where you need it most — the wheel that has the most resistance or traction.
