Bottom fell out of all the Mustangs. Unless you have a fastback or a Shelby they are not selling. fastback are not doing too good and even the high collectibles like Shelby's are not selling like they use to.
As for my personal thoughts. I never liked a 69 'Stang. I think they are the ugliest mustang they ever made. I'd rather have a Mustang II King Cobra as to a 69.

I'm still looking for that dream, 67 or 68 fastback. Those are the only ones I'd spend too much money on.

I had one of these in '76 but it was just a 5 year old car when I was offered about $500.00 more than I gave for it.

I've seen it. A couple times. It's not junk. Could be a nice car with a little TLC. He won't give it away though. Good luck!

Rich Kiss came over this afternoon, was here about 30 minutes, popped in the rear glass, so I am water tight, couldn't even set it out to clean the shop unless it was a clear day...

....I flushed the motor, changed the oil, blew out the oil line from the Shelby Gauge pod to the motor, refilled it with oil and Lucas, primed it with my drill, had 60 lbs cold, re-installed the distributor, shot a little starting fluid, and bam...click pick for video;

Man, that is so cool to see this 'stang come back to life! cheers What's story on the carb? You said it was junk. Also, I take it the Shelby gauges came with it? Nice addition there...

That's cool! Glad the motor is not in need of a bottom end rebuild as the seller thought it might be. Now who's going to call him and break the news? What a Face

If my memory serves me, I believe the GT model production #'s for 1969 was not very high, meaning compared to Mach I's there were a whole lot fewer GT's than there were Mach I's..... even though they are the same body code, they are considered a different model, and depending on the collector, their values are usually higher than a Mach I. Not as flashy, but more sought after by certain collectors because of the rarity. The interiors are generally not as glitzy- more black camera case type finish compared to the woodgrain of the Mach. Usually no console, plain steering wheel, just not as "done up" as a Mach, but definitely a keeper if you can find one...... let me know if you need any parts, after doing my 2 Mach I's, I got lots of stupid trinket parts kickin' around. You got a pretty good find there. And by the way, one of mine was off the road for 26 years before I finished it.... that car is a member of the family- will probably have to find a casket for it! My family has owned it for 34 years.

DD is right...the '69 GTs are indeed a fairly rare breed and some do command a higher premium depending on color and options.

I'd say "yuck", but that's not nearly severe enough to state what that looks like! A steam jenny would be a good start, along with lots of lacquer thinner. Good luck, and we all wish you the best.
