1969 Ford Mustang Coupe
This well documented Mustang has been restored with a strong hint of the modern “Resto-Mod, while not straying too far from its muscle car heritage.
Found untouched in an Oregon barn in 2006, Has the original owner's manual, Build Sheet, Marti Report and the original Eminger Ford invoice. This pony left the factory in Dearborn, MI bound for San Jose, CA in December 1968 as an H Code 351 Windsor with 2 barrel carburetor, FMX transmission and a 2.75 geared 9" rear differential. The original color was New Lime Green with Dark Ivy Gold interior. Options included were front disc brakes, power steering, AM radio, console, tinted windows and a black vinyl top. Repainted in 2006 Porsche Forest Green Metallic, this fierce-looking street warrior features American Racing wheels and Goodyear G-Force rubber. The original black vinyl top is in wonderful condition, as is the original Dark Ivy Gold interior, now updated with air conditioning, new carpeting, dash pad, steering wheel, tilt steering column and black accents. A Rockford-Fosgate multi-speaker sound system with touchscreen control and mp3 provide the soundtrack for your cruise nights, if you get tired of listening to the motor that is. The drivetrain description reads like a speed shop inventory. The original 351 now rebuilt, dyno tested at over 420hp with 10.5:1 Keith Black pistons, AFR aluminum heads, Comp Cams Xtreme Energy roller cam, Edelbrock RPM air gap manifold, MSD ignition, March serpentine pulley system and MSD fuel injection. Custom ceramic coated Hedman headers route exhaust to dual Flowmaster mufflers. A race-prepped C6 transmission with a Hughes 3,000 rpm stall sends power to the originally equipped Ford 9" with 373 gears and an Auburn limited-slip. Global West and Competition Engineering suspension make this animal tame & an absolute blast to drive.
There was a new twist in the Ford vs. Chevy rivalry when it came to cars being searched during the month June on the ClassicCars.com marketplace. That twist was a Ford vs. Ford rivalry in which all-years Mustangs overtook all-years Ford in one of the two search lists. Oh, by the way, that all-years search […]
Dream Giveaway Garage and CJ Pony Parts are offering a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet as a grand prize in support of veterans’ and kids’ charities. It’s an opportunity to win a very rare, low-mileage classic. But there are only six more days to enter. The Pony Car Wars in the United States had […]
I was never a Fox Body Mustang fan, per se. It certainly was a big improvement on the Mustang II, but it never made me want to own one. I would however discover in auto crossing that these cars were far nimbler in the F-Street Class than my Pontiac Firebird. Being here at the ClassicCars.com […]
In the course of three weeks, I drove three performance cars: the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 455 horsepower from a 6.2-liter small block with direct injection; the Dodge Charger Scat Pack with 485 horsepower from a normally aspirated 392 Hemi; and the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium with 332 horsepower from a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC […]
Ford is bringing back its heralded Mustang Mach I, and plans to do so this spring, which apparently means between now and the first day of summer, which this year is June 20. Note: This is the Mustang Mach I, not the Mach E, so it’s a high-performance sports coupe, not a utility vehicle, and […]
You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
“This is how we World Premier during quarantine!” Ken Block says. “Three guys locked down in different parts of the country, using video chat to give you the FIRST LOOK at what might be the very next ‘Hoonicorn’ project! “Check it out as I chat with Ash Thorp (Hollywood graphic artist and designer of the […]
Sometimes collector cars are bought simply because of their rarity and value. But sometimes they are bought because of their story. For example, Jay Leno says he doesn’t buy cars, he buys stories. The Pick of the Day is a car with a story. The car is a 1978 Ford Mustang II, certainly not widely […]
With a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT leading the way and selling for £63,250 ($79,320), England’s H&H Classics reports that its April 29 online auction posted £600,000 ($752,500) in revenue with a 70 percent sell-through rate. “The sale attracted some 387 online bidders with log-ins from as far afield as California and New Zealand,” the […]
Maybe we need the police to investigate this one because the Pick of the Day is an intriguing offer but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com doesn’t answer all of our questions. The car is an unusually all-black 1989 Ford Mustang with dog-dish hubcaps and what appears to be a lowered stance. That would make sense since […]
