Some folks might look at this spectacular 1969 Mustang fastback and
think it was nothing but a trailer queen. But checking the specs,
you'll realize that not only is it beautiful, but it has been built
for combat thanks to a thundering 428 that will easily humiliate a
lot of impressive hardware out on the street.
With Boss 429s rapidly closing in on the quarter-million-dollar mark, it's natural for hobbyists to gravitate towards the next best thing in big block Mustangs: the 428 Cobra Jet. This stunning Sportsroof is finished in luscious Torch Red paint, making it the kind of car that you almost can't resist touching. And yes, finish work was done to show standards and you'd be forgiven for thinking this was nothing but a trailer queen. Gaps are excellent, detailing is exceptional, and that paint, well, the photos just don't do it justice. For the proper look, there's a giant hood scoop, but otherwise it was left devoid of add-ons and decals because, honestly, 1969 is probably the best year for attractive Mustangs. This is exactly the kind of car you DON'T mess with when you see it on the street, because you know if they spent this much getting the bodywork right, then there's surely a fortune's worth of performance underneath, too. And you'd be totally correct in that estimation, because it's nasty!
The impressive work continues with the interior, which features original comfort-weave upholstery on the original high-back buckets, with a sliver of red stitched in for contrast, just like the Mach 1. The fat wooden steering wheel works well with the simulated wood appliques on the dash and door panels, and you know any car with a Hurst cue ball means business. The original gauges monitor the upgraded engine, and there's an AM/FM/cassette stereo from some distant past, but listening to the radio in this car is to totally miss the point. All the soft parts were installed in September 2015, so it's incredibly fresh, and even the trunk is lined with a reproduction mat that looks like they just took it out of the wrapper. You know the term "cost no object?" This is what it looks like in Mustang form.
Originally powered by an M-code 351, there's now a built 428 cubic inch V8 under the hood, which is actually a better choice for a street car than the deep-breathing Boss 429 unit. Bored .060 oversize, balanced and blueprinted, it's full of the good stuff, yet looks show car sanitary with correct Ford Blue paint on the block, tons of chrome, and framed by beautifully finished sheetmetal. Aluminum heads from Edelbrock work with an AED 4-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, making this engine grunt out considerably more than the original's 335 horsepower. The supporting cast is pretty impressive, too, featuring a gorgeous custom stainless steel exhaust system with an X-pipe, a 4-speed transmission, and a 9-inch full of 3.50 gears on a Track-Lok. The chassis is incredibly well-detailed, with the Torch Red tub offering a high-contrast backdrop to the satin black suspension parts and shiny gas tank. Obviously, everything is new, including bushings, shocks, lines, hoses, and fasteners, and even the 15-inch Magnums are fresh, wearing staggered 215/65/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFG rubber.
