This lot is no longer available
Ford put a lot of effort into the 1969 model. The Mustang was significantly restyled, but it was still pure Mustang. It was longer, lower, meaner, and sleeker. Every dimension increased except for the wheelbase, which remained at 108 inches. The biggest visual change was the front grille opening, which was larger and decidedly more aggressive with its four headlights. The all-new 1969 Mustang was just the ticket for muscle car buyers of the late 60's. The restyle looked particularly effective on the Mustang fastback model which was now called the SportsRoof. The roof line on the SportsRoof was lowered by 0.9 inch and the side sculpturing was eliminated for a cleaner, smoother look. The interior was totally restyled and now called the Deluxe Interior, which was standard equipment on the Grande, Mach 1 and Boss 429 models and featured a console that got plenty of simulated wood grain. The general range of options was extended, with a wider choice of engines from the base six-cylinder unit through the 302 & 351-cid 'Cleveland' V8s and the availability of the 428 Cobra Jet big-block V8. There were also auto and manual transmission options coupled to a range of final drives. The Mustang is a great choice for the classic car buyer; good looking and reasonably inexpensive to run and maintain, they also continue to have a strong market in Australia and are a solid investment.
