The Mustang that I have for sale is a 1969 hardtop with a factory big block 390 V8. This is a very rare car, and who knows how many are left to exist.

In 1969 Ford produced 10,549 S Code Mustangs.

Hardtop Coupes: 858
Sport Roofs: 9,440
Convertibles: 251

From the research that I have done, of the 858 coupes, 629 were equiped with automatics.

This Mustang runs and drives, and appears to be an all original California car.

As you can see in the picture, it is in fair condition for it's age. This car is very solid, with the exception of a small fist sized hole in the trunk, and several very small holes near the rear window, under where the vinyl top was. The rest of the car is rock solid, including the floors, shock towers, sills, and quarters.

According to the 2011 Collector Car Price Guide, there is no reference to the S code for 1969. They only say to ad 30% for Cobra Jet V8 engines. The S code is far more rare than a 428 equiped Mustang.

(6) $940
(5) $2,820
(4) $4,700
(3) $10,580
(2) $16,450
(1) $23,500

Please note, these prices are for base 302 Mustangs.

In the condition this car is in, I would rate it a 4.5

This car is definately a sleeper, and deserves to be restored.

Unfortunately, I do not have a title, but I am sure one can be obtained through the many title companies.

I wouldn't be selling, but due to unforseen circumstances, I have no choice.

Last year I was offered twice my asking price, but decided to restore it myself.

Car is located in Northern California

Does it have a Tachometer? How about a center console? Does it have the original smog equipment? How about the original Holley carb?

Is the fist sized rust hole in the trunk floor or in the decklid itself?

I am not near the car at the moment, so I am not for sure if it has a tachometer, but it does have the center console. The engine appears to be original, and everything looks intact, including the original Holley carburetor. The rust in the trunk is the floor on the driver side.

Let me know if you are serious. Please contact me via e-mail to set something up, or if you would like to see more pictures of the Mustang.
