About 1969 Ford Mustang
The 1969 Ford Mustang is the first Mustang to feature four headlights instead of just two on the front grille, and it is the easiest way to recognize this model from earlier ones. For many Mustang collectors, 1969 is a banner year that represents the heyday of the muscle car before the oil shortages of the 1970s. Models such as the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 as well as the Boss Mustang remain legendary within the muscle car community. The 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback version, which Ford renamed as the "Sportsroof" style, is the most popular body style. However, there are some oddities with this year, including the ultra-rare 1969 Mustang E, with the "E" for "economy." Ford produced only 50 of these high mpg Mustangs, and how many withstood the test of time remains a mystery. A variety of options of the 1969 Ford Mustang, from the enormous GT 500 with its Cobra Jet engine to the tiny V6 Mustang, are available on eBay, as well as original and aftermarket replacement parts for these classic cars.
