Description for Ford Mustang 1969

1969 Mach 1, R-Code 428 Cobra Jet. Toploader 4-speed, 9-inch rear. If you are looking at this then you already know what it is, it has many desirable features and color, and so on. I know I will receive a lot of questions anyway and that's fine, but I am selling the car for what it is, and nothing else. It will be 50 years old in another month, so it has a few scratches etc! It was a one-owner car until last year, and has 43,327 original miles. T5 Candyapple Red, 3A Black Mach 1 interior. The seats are in very good condition and can be carefully cleaned and used as-is, rather than reupholstered, if desired. Otherwise a complete restoration of this Mach 1 will be required. It was intact and running/driving until this spring(2018), when it was disassembled, bagged and tagged. All parts are present, some can be restored/reused. It will need front floors(rest of floor good), and probably frame rails etc but they are not that bad. There is typical rust there, and behind fuel tank, bottom corner of doors, and thats about it. Solid enough to drive, but why would you. The quarter panels were reported to have been replaced years ago, unknown why, but the original owner has passed away and his wife just doesn't know all the details. But the shop did an ok job if they were replaced. The deck lid has been replaced with a good used Candyapple Red OEM deck lid and is in good condition. All glass is good, wiring good, brakes good, trim is good, hinges and latches good, suspension good, steering good, engine and trans mounts good etc. Irregardless, you may ask any questions, but if you are not serious then please don't waste your time or mine by asking if the lighter works etc. (By the way, it does.)
Here is a list of interest:
1969 Red Cobra Jet Mach 1-4 speed car with original RUG-AE2(Cobra Jet/Boss 429) transmission and shifter. Partial Vin is stamped on trans, and it matches.-3.25 Traction Loc option (R code Axle), current ratio etc and condition is unknown as I have not disassembled it or checked it.-Radio block-off as car was not optioned with a radio. The original block-off plate and original front fender with no hole for an antenna are present. The build sheet confirms this.-R Code 428 Cobra Jet Ram Air engine, with original block, valve covers, pulleys, brackets, alternator, date coded Holley carb, distributor, radiator, big block shock towers, heater fan cover/protector, wiring,bellhousing, and most of the ram air parts. Staggered rear shocks. The air cleaner base is there but not original. The shaker seal is original. Flapper etc is too. The heads are correct CJ but date code is later on both, and intake was an aftermarket aluminum. The crank and rods are SCJ/Lemans rods. Most of the rest is original to the car including the fan etc, but obviously the car was a driver and parts saw replacement through the years. No smog parts.-Black Mach 1 Comfortweave interior, seats very good, door panels good, etc but will need carpet and headliner etc. The original carpet is there but worn. Original console is present and intact. Instrument cluster and clock "cove" are in good condition. Will need a new dash pad, this one is worn.-Original tach dash is present with light Teak (3A) woodgrain. All matching "light Teak" on cluster, block off plate, cove, and console etc. The build sheet confirms the tachometer. I know the window sticker doesn't show the "optional" tach, but this is an early build car that received the tach with the CJ/4 speed, as did the 1968 Cobra Jets, as a "dealer incentive" or because of the extra cost 4 speed etc. Long story. Those that know, know. Please see the internet forums on this.-All 5 chrome styled-steel wheels are present, with caps and trim rings.-Power front disc brakes(factory optioned when new), brake booster etc are good and present.
-This was, for the most part, a complete and intact one-owner car until recently, not a junkyard buy.
-I have the clear Michigan title, the original build sheet that is intact(found under the carpet), the original buck tag is still on the radiator core support, vin stamps on inner fenders present, original door tag present, Date codes on sheetmetal, original keys, the Marti Elite and Deluxe Reports, and original window sticker that the original owner kept and is is laminated. The Elite Report includes much info and a copy of the window sticker, as well as a new door tag, and all were mounted in a very nice frame, sent directly from Kevin Marti.
It was almost without question a dealer-traded car, as the reports and window stickers show the ordering dealer is different than the selling dealer. Again, please see the Cobra Jet sites and/or contact Kevin Marti or any other trusted source.
I will not show or release the entire VIN# for obvious reasons. Please bid with confidence as I have all of the listed items that are so very important to this very car, including the build sheet. Also, there were two identical build sheets present, in this car and for this car. There was also an S-code Mustang build sheet stacked with these build sheets. Eventually I may try to track down the owner of the S-code car to see if he/she would like this sheet, if the car still exists. If you need to see this car before bidding, contact me and we can talk. It is a highly desirable car and I will work with the buyer in any way I can. It is for sale locally so I reserve the right to stop the auction if deemed necessary.
If you don't have 100% positive feedback, I will talk to Ebay, and reserve the right to cancel any bids. I just don't want any hassles with someone not following thru.
This is being sold as-is. NO exceptions.
A $500.00 deposit, per paypal, is due immediately at auction end. Again, no exceptions. This is also a non-refundable deposit, so please be sure of your intentions. This is to insure a seamless deal.
