The story of the Ford Mustang is so well-known and pivotal in American automotive history, it might as well be integrated into the History curriculum for middle-schoolers. You know the story, Ford creates a sensation with the release of the Mustang in 1964, a new genre is born called the Pony Car, several others join over the years, and the story continues. That’s why first-generation ‘Stangs such as this 1969 Ford Mustang 302ci Coupe are highly desirable items on the classic car market; they are not symbols of American history. Packing a light 53,287 miles, this ‘Stang has seen some refreshment, as well as a few upgrades.
The timeless lines of the Gale Halderman-penned design will live for eternity. While the most common style is the fastback, this 1969 Ford Mustang 302ci Coupe is of the hardtop variant, and presents itself in a lustrous blue paintwork, that’s reportedly just two years old. A new grille has been installed, and the headlamps have been given an upgrade to halogen inner and outer units. A set of five-spoke period-style alloys are installed, and if you head round back, you’ll find a dual exhaust with quad Wicked tips looking right back at you. Back at the front, the hood sports a custom hood pin kit with locking latches for added race car feel. The blue and black interior complements the exterior well, and can seat four occupants in this pony car. The interior is mostly stock, and even has Vintage Air AC installed for cooling on warm days. A modern touch is present in the form of the Pioneer aftermarket head unit with CD, Bluetooth, AUX and USB capabilities. The seller reports that the original stock shifter was re-installed as well. A Ravelco anti-theft kill switch key ensures that no miscreant can easily nick your prized Mustang.
The 1969 Mustang came with a range of powerplants, ranging from a 200ci (3.3L) Thriftpower in-line six all the way to a big-block 429ci (7.0L) Boss V8. This 1969 Ford Mustang 302ci Coupe straddles the two extremes with a 302ci (5.0L) V8 that’s coupled to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The seller discloses that they are unsure if the engine and transmission are numbers-matching. Upgrades on this car include an electric cooling fan, power steering and a new Edelbrock carburetor.
