CORRECT COLOR, AFTERMARKET A/C, CLEAN DROP TOP STANG, ORIGINAL 351, CLEAN!
Despite the huge popularity of the Ford Mustang, you don't really see many 1969 Mustang convertibles like this. Fastbacks? Sure! But just try to find another ragtop this nice for such a reasonable price; I strongly suspect you'll come up empty.
The 1969 Mustang's design is arguably the pinnacle of pony car styling, and while not quite as aggressive as the "sportsroof" models, this convertible has an undeniably muscular look. The soft Meadowlark Yellow provides an awesome contrast to the high performance styling, and it is indeed the car's original color. Hailing from warm, dry Texas where it spent the entirety of its life, the body panels are completely original to the car; only the floors have been replaced (this is a convertible, after all). Fit and finish are pretty darned good for a drop-top Mustang with a V8 and the doors fit well and don't get wiggly in their openings like a lot of cars that have been abused. Black accent pieces like the grille, hood scoop, and rear wing amp up the aggression factor but since they're from the Mustang parts bin, they look right and make this convertible a real head-turner. Bright chrome bumpers certainly don't hurt, either, and the three-element taillights look fantastic in the center of all that light yellow paint.
Black upholstery was definitely the right choice with the light yellow bodywork and the upgraded Luxury interior pattern give this Mustang a very upscale look. Buckets flank a woodgrained center console that matches the appliques on the dash, neatly bridging the gap between sport and luxury. A wood-rimmed steering wheel also helps warm things up inside. The seats, door panels, and carpets all appear to be fairly recent and in great shape and the original gauges show clear faces and bright markings. A set of auxiliary gauges are neatly tucked into the center console, right below the controls for the factory A/C, which is backed by modern components for reliability. A later Audiovox AM/FM/cassette stereo system fits so neatly in the dash and uses original-style knobs that many folks won't even notice the change. There's a recent convertible top and a matching black boot to make it look sleek, while the trunk is neatly dressed with black carpets and a matching fifth wheel and spare tire.
That's the original, numbers-matching 351 Windsor V8 under the hood and it's a great choice in a Mustang that's going to get driven. Rebuilt about three years ago, it's got a great blend of performance and street-friendly manners. The black valve covers and matching air cleaner update a favorite look, and the super-sanitary engine bay shows off the fact that this car has been loved. Backed by an FMX 3-speed automatic transmission and 3.25 gears in the 9-inch rear end, it's a great cruiser that's quick enough on the streets, yet remains relaxing on long highway trips. A throaty dual exhaust system offers a lot of fun, especially with the top down so you can really hear the small block sing, and those Magnum 500 wheels remain among the best-looking of the era. Staggered 215/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich radials inject a bit of attitude into this pony's stance.
