1969 Ford Mustang Convertible
1969 Ford Mustang Convertible
Ads appearing in Magazines in 1969 stated “Somebody finally built a better Mustang…We did” meaning for the past 4 years the Mustang has been the bestselling car out there, and finally Ford outdid themselves with the newly designed Mustang for 1969. Clever!
For consignment a first year of the second generation of the Mustang all wrapped up and in convertible form. Soak up the sun, drive and have fun with this one, as you can get in and turn the key, and you will be on the road immediately.
Originally from the factory this car left with Lime Gold paint, and an Ivy Gold interior. All has since changed with a restoration that now covers the car in Red, with some black pin striping. Chrome bumpers and headlight bezels are in good condition, side mirror and door handles show some pitting and slight bubbling on the chrome. Brite work and window surrounds are in good condition and shiny. The convertible is working properly, has no rips or tears, and has a folding glass rear window, and comes with an interior matching tonneau cover in Black. New for 69, the front is more rakish and has 4 headlights…2 of which reside in the grille along with the Mustang badging, this year losing the galloping stallion the middle, and presenting it smaller over a vertical striped bar.
Covered in now Black vinyl, buckets up front and rear bench show little wear, and are free of rips or tears. Padding in seats is consistent, and all good. A black thick carpet covers the floors and is in good condition, with no staining or fading. The dash is rakish as well and has the deeply imbedded round instruments in front of the original steering wheel. The center of the dash now heads toward the floor and meets the hump and includes an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player, and heating + airflow controls. The shapely iconic Mustang T style shift lever resides well within reach of the driver and presents in chrome.
A rebuilt engine with many new listed parts shows when opening the hood. Consigner states that this rebuild has 23,223 miles on it since and runs smoothly. As for specs, we see an original cosmetically unrestored (but rebuilt) 302ci V8 engine topped by a 2-barrel carburetor and backed by a C4 3-speed automatic transmission.
Surface rust is noted on typical steel untreated parts, but the floorpans, toe kicks and inner fenders as well as the frame are rust free and solid. Some suspension parts have surface rust as well, but all is sound with these. A 2.79 conventional axle is noted, and 4-wheel power drum brakes are seen all around.
The beneficiary of an older restoration and color change for the exterior and interior, an engine rebuild, but the power plant has been left original cosmetically, and many new parts added when the rebuild occurred. A solid example, runs smoothly, shifts effortlessly, and is in overall good condition.
