I would skip the older 6x7 and go for a 67 body. Of course the 67ii would be your best bet, but at a higher cost.

I’ve been told that there are some under the hood changes with the 67 although they are functionally identical to the 6x7 MLU. The main thing you get with the 67 is a newer manufacture date and a lower probability of death due to aging.

I could find mint, rarely used, almost unused 6x7 having ttl & mlu for less price than the 67 models, in this case would you still recommend to skip 6x7 and look for 67 model?

If it's really mint and has no issues, then yes. I found my 6x7 MLU in a similar condition, boxed and almost mint. Works like a charm.

...The 6x7 Mirror-Up & 67 are essentially the same camera as far as I can tell - I have both (slightly different cosmetics but that's it).
I've heard there are some material changes on some internal parts too.

Anything of an older vintage in many cases will be less expensive.
Anything of an older vintage, depending on its history, may well need some sort of technical attention. Budget for this.
Both 6x7 MLU and 67 will serve you well - neither have glaring problems of any kind.
Find one within your budget and if necessary have it sent to a technician for CLA.
If you're sure the system is for you, it's often possible to find a sale lot that includes several lenses/accessories for less money than buying everything separately. Everyone's recommendations here are also heavily dependent on the condition of the camera, case by case.
Don't overthink this.
