Sellers original description:
This car has had a full nut and bolt restoration, painstakingly restoring this Mustang Hardtop Coupe to it's former glory. The car is to all intents and purposes a new car.
We have a full Marti Report and it breaks down as follows:-
Serial Number - 9T01S112530
1969, Mustang Hardtop, 390-4V (4 Port 390 cubic in V8), Acapulco Blue (Repainted to exact colour code), White Vinyl Bucket Seats (originals with car), c-6 Automatic Transmission.
In summary, the car has been completely overhauled from start to finish. The car has a correct 390 Ford FE engine, fully rebuilt with forged internals. Fitted to it is a Holley 670 Street Avenger Carb with automatic choke and competition Hooker headers. The car starts and idles just like a modern car, it's hard to believe it is 44 years old! We have also finished the engine off with beautiful cobra rocker covers, it really helps lift the already stunning look of the engine bay.
We have completely overhauled the suspension, with new shocks, bushes and other ancillaries. There are also brand new power assisted discs brakes to the front and fully rebuilt drums to the rear.
The car runs and drives fantastically. The 390 V8 delivers great power and features a very robust automatic transmission that will light up the tyres in second gear. The car really is characterful and is very easy and comfortable to drive. The custom made exhaust system really lets this muscle car shout as well, with beautiful quad exhaust tips to finish it off.
The fit and finish on the car is excellent, only to our exacting standards. The car has no blemishes, it really is as-new, possibly even better. All door, boot and bonnet shuts are exact. The interior feels and looks fresh, clean and new. It has new carpets and roof headliner, refurbished dash pods and a features the original clock. The windows (all new glass to the whole car) roll up and down easily and the doors open and close effortlessly. Absolutely every interior, and exterior light works. The speedometer needle is stable at speed, oil pressure and temp gauges all work as they did on day one.
The underside of the car is as clean as the top side, it is new. There are NO rust issues at all as a result. The floor pans, trunk, drop offs, frame rails and shock towers are all brand new, as is the fuel tank. It has brand new fuel and brake lines, totally re-engineered electric wiring harnesses and also features the car’s original GT wheels.
We could go on forever and a day about this car as it has wanted for nothing. We believe you won't find a better built Mustang out there than this one. It's something we are very proud of.
