This is a 1969 Mustang GT 351 Cleveland engine. I'm selling this because it's time (kid going off to college). This is considered in my mind to be a mid-level restoration project for the enthusiast. I want to be honest this car needs some mechanical maintenance work to be performed. The exterior looks very impressive . And when complete the buyer will reap long term wealth with an investment in this as a classic car. Let me share some history on the vehicle.
1969 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM!!! UNIQUE PONY CAR WITH MACH & SHELBY ATTRIBUTES!
STUNNING RAVEN BLACK EXTERIOR / ELEANOR STYLE MAGS / A MUST SEE!
I am the second owner. This was a family owned car and driven daily but placed in storage for about 10 yrs. A full blown "cosmetic" restoration was performed in 2010 and I'm told was taken down to the bare metal. The body is straight and free from amateur defects. The Raven black paint on the surface of the vehicle is smooth to the touch. There is some minor scratches and a paint chip since the restoration. The exterior is very shiny and almost looks wet in direct sunlight! For the showroom look it has been cut and buffed. The body’s contour is quite striking and the paint is very uniform as well. The doors shut as they should and the fit is pretty consistent with original tooling specifications.
An aggressive set of Tony Branda sanctioned Shelby side scoops have been added and really wake up quarter panels. A Custom flared Shelby style trunk deck lid and a Mach 1 hood scoop with the gloss black paint and flame red set of lower GT rocker panel stripes provides an excellent contrast and gives this vintage Ford a sporty look. Speedometer does not work as it needs new cable.
All of the chrome / stainless moldings were restored to like new condition in 2010. Front and rear bumpers have both been replaced. An iconic pop open gas cap and a set of sport racing mirrors have also been added. Boasting “NOSTALGIA” is a set of black premium high back Mach 1 seats with a red upholstery stripe situated across the top. Located directly in back is a rarely seen luxury rear deluxe bench with molded buttons.
Original Ford luxury staple Rim Blow steering wheel also still in place. It is complimented by the optional wood grain dash that has stood the test of time w/ original crafted black deluxe Ford door panels. It time to replace these. Ive ordered these and plan to exchange them out. The flooring carpet is newer and in good shape.
The engine under the hood of this pony car is incredibly strong. The pedestrian F-Code 302 block was replaced in 2010 with the renown 351 Cleveland that was rebuilt to perform! Many internal components were upgraded to ensure this pony is strong as it is reliable. These include but are not limited to a forged racing crank, CompCam, Clevite performance rod bearings, Hypereutectic flat top pistons along with a high volume oil pump. Horsepower & torque ratios are very impressive (last rated at 400 / 420 respectively).
A new all aluminum radiator has been installed which also makes each trip a pleasurable one. There has been high temperature thermostat added as well. Set of 17 inch Eleanor Mustang style steel polished mag wheels” were added with new lugs! You will also find a nice set of HT Performance radials at all four corners! The car is structurally sound and shows minimal rust 7 yrs after restoration. The floors, torque boxes and frame rails are all in good shape! This is an investment grade classic car that will only continue to appreciate with proper owner enthusiast.
