This 1969 Mustang Sportsroof is a base trim model (63A) built in
San Jose as an R-code 428 Cobra Jet with Ram Air, C6 automatic and
3.50 axle ratio. As a base car, there is no faux Mach 1 style
woodgrain overlay surrounding the very rare factory installed
tachometer cluster or distracting the passenger view which gives
the interior a contemporary look. Because this is a factory CJ, it
has all of the same mechanical upgrades that the CJ Mach 1 received
including competition suspension (spings, front sway bar, shocks),
power front disc brakes and larger rear drums, reinforced shock
towers and reinforced export braces, 9-inch rear axle, heavy duty
cooling, fast ratio 16:1 steering (power assisted with PS fluid
cooler in this car), and 14x6 styled steel wheels with F70x14 wide
oval belted tires. The base trim model has a monotone exterior,
deleting the blackout hood treatment, side/rear stripes and
moldings of a Mach 1 but still has its original shaker hood scoop
topping the Cobra Jet.
Documentation is very important and with this 1969 Mustang, the original build sheet and Deluxe Marti report and a very large amount of receipts and records are contained in a documents book. That doc book also contains additional items authenticating originality; pictures that show casting dates and matching assembly plant build tags on transmission and axle to the build sheet. Marti report is included that tells us as one of the 465 Cobra Jet non-Mach 1's, when options are added, it becomes 1 of 1, as originally built. This 1969 Was just freshened with a full repaint, although not in the original Black Jade with Ivy Gold interior, the Red base coat clear coat exterior is a very close match to contemporary Race Red with Black Standard Trim Interior which was also freshened with new carpet and complete underlayment. As well, the trunk has been cleaned and resprayed and includes a correct spare wheel/tire. To Keep this 47-year-old car running and enjoyable to drive, all maintenance and wear items have been addressed. Cooling, brakes, fuel, power steering, ignition, suspension, lighting, and radio have all received a rebuilt and or upgrade. To modernize the driving experience, the front suspension has been upgraded to a stealthy Bilstein coilover system designed and built by a dedicated classic Mustang-only suspension shop that proves his systems on the track and street. This Pony has the right stance, nose down with classic chin spoiler, 17" 5-spoke wheels and 235/45 front and 255/45 rear tires filling the big wheel arches. It stands out in a crowd, is comfortable to drive, has original details, original cobra jet power, and benefits from functional upgrades.
