1969 Ford Mustang S Code 390 Hard Top Coupe. Top- Loader 4 Speed Manual Transmission. This is an extremely rare and unusual Mustang S code 390 4-V Coupe as the Marti report indicates. It has a Big Block 390/ Top Loader 4sp./ Bench Seat. It is 1 of 214 with these engine and transmission codes in a Coupe body style, only 1 of 70 if you include the interior trim code. In my investigation of the Marti report my Dealer Principal and I (I work for a Ford Car Dealership) we speculated that this vehicle was either
miss-ordered or special ordered. It appears that whatever happened, the car sat on the Dealers lot in Spokane Washington, Majer Ford, nearly one year before it sold. You will very likely never see another one like it. I have been in the Ford business for 25 plus years, attended many Mustang car shows; I have never seen another one like it. If you are looking for something VERY unique, this is it. Very Collectable. Have all receipts and history of ownership dating back to 1983.
