Prospective Mach owner!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Thought I would make a proper introduction of myself as per the moderators recommendations.


My first mustang was a '66 coupe, restored that from the ground up, sold it and found a lonely '69 convertible that had been forgotten in a field for 20 some odd years.


The owner purchased it in the 90's, drove it 150 miles, got bored and parked it in the field. (I'm confused too)


Anyways, knowing the rarity of a '69 droptop, I had to try and buy it. Too my surprise, a few greenbacks later it was trailered home to me (yay!)


The car is a factory 302 four speed (Don't see that everyday) with a power top and manual EVERYTHING ELSE.


Talk about getting priorities straight?


Anyways, that's the same field fresh paint just with a little spit and polish, the interior is all original and the car is 100% numbers matching. It was a time capsule with everything from the original water pump to the original fuel pump. I attached pictures from the day it was brought home, the engine rebuild and the front end rebuild. (I really like torque thrust wheels if you were wondering)


I got the marti report back for the car and it's 1 of 245 convertibles EVER built with a 302 four speed. That's pleasantly surprising, eh?


Please enjoy my photo flood of cars... And stuff.

Oh, and here's the '71 Mach (M code) that I'm looking to by from the original owner!
