Car description

Absolutely beautiful 1969 Mustang less than 500 miles since restore. Car has been restored/upgraded top to bottom, front to back. I'll list everything done to it below. They only made 1 convertible for every 20 Mustangs in 1969 with a total of around 14K (out of 280K Mustangs), only about 1600 with the 351 and only around 800 with this paint and trim, making this a rare production car. It has been lovingly restored and nearly everything has been restored or upgraded. Deluxe Marti report included. Original Window Sticker! All docs on all recent work done to the car! Many docs on previous work as well!
Original specs:
1969 Mustang Convertible, 351W engine, 2V (now upgraded to 4V Holley on top of a Weiand Stealth dual-plan manifold), 9 inch rear end (open 2.75 for enjoyable cruising), FMX automatic, power steering, and a power top.Original T code (Candy Apple Red) paint color done in a beautiful 2-stage base-coat, clear-coat. Paint a 9 out of 10New Rubber seals in trunk, doors and hood.Shelby brake scoops added (original ornaments come with car), side badges and molding holes filled in for smooth, Shelby/Boss look.Underneath the front floor plans were replaced and any rust issue taken care of. After that it was painted and sprayed with bed-liner for a tough, water resistant coating for actual, worry-free driving!
Dual exhaust.
All suspension has been replaced with new parts within the last year.
Original engine and transmission (by VIN stamps)Engine removed and completely freshened up with all new seals. Cylinder walls inspected and showed plenty of life left.New motor mounts, new transmission mounts.
Export brace and 1.125" sway-bar added for increased rigidity.
Engine bay cleaned, painted and any issues dealt with while engine was out being refreshed, and the whole engine bay presents very well (see pics)
Brand new 750ca battery
All new belts and hoses
Transmission completely rebuilt (less than 100 miles)
Power brakes were added with new Willwood 12" disc brakes up front
Shaker Hood, front and rear spoilers not original to this car but period correct
17 inch black torque-thrust style wheels and new Firestone tires (less than 500 miles), matching spare.
Weiand Stealth dual-plane intake manifold (new)
Holley 600cfm carb (new)
Upgraded electronic ignition (new)
Brand new wiring harness front to back! (serious upgrade that few people do)Modern one-wire alternator
New gas tank
Interior like new (redone to original dark red), new foam rubber, new dash, restored steering wheel, sound/heat lining under carpet, original dark-red steering wheel professionally restored (unlike the ugly after-market crud). Interior is a 9.5 out of 10.New trunk liner and spare coverOriginal radio in place (powers on, not connected to speakers/antenna).Billet short antenna.New black top with glass window
New chrome bumpers, backup lights, side markers and all trim.
2 stage (base-coat, clear-coat), Candy Apple Red (Ford T, original color) paint (paint is 4 months old)
No rust car. Floor-pan and rails all repaired, painted and coated for actual driving without worry. No rust anywhere.No bondo, entire car has good, solid sheet metal.No leaks. No cooling issues, no mechanical issues.Car has been in the family for 10 years and never left uncovered out in the weather.Starts right up, runs very, very well, very dependable and enjoyable to drive. Turns heads and brings out the cameras everywhere you go!Not a 100 point MCA car, but a very nice cruiser and local show winner (Mustang Steve loved the car last week and commented how beautiful it is, if you know who he is)
The only issues I'm aware of is that the windows on the drivers' side don't completely line up yet (very common on the 69s), I haven't spent time on that as I NEVER drive this car in inclement weather and only drive it with the top down! (of course! its too nice not to). The hood hinges could use replacement, they leave the hood up a bit when shut where you need to push it down slightly. The windshield is original (not broken, just a little pitted from 50 years) and could be replaced for $220 if desired (I can have it done before pickup if the buyer is serious, there's a glass shop right down the street and I already have a quote).
I have the original rear quarter ornaments and original carburetor to go with the car along with the original door tag. Can get the original argent wheels for $300 (I know the guy who has them if you want them).
$1000 non-refundable deposit due within 24 hours (unless arrangements are made), and full payment within 7 days (unless arrangements are made). Shipping at expense of buyer but I will work with your shipper and help assure its done right. I have a note on the car so payment will have to be done through the bank. Title is clean (no salvage, etc..) Texas title.
