Right from the start, Lee Iacocca’s Mustang was a formula for success that few cars can claim. One of the longest-produced models in Ford’s illustrious history, the Mustang set sales records right out of the chute. Iacocca was smart enough to use the successful platform as widely as possible; a 1965 Mustang was available in every style from a thrifty six-cylinder to a competitive muscle car. With great cars like the Mach 1 and the Boss 302 coming soon, the gen-one Mustang was a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. The consignor of this unique Mustang had an amazing vision of what a modern Boss would look like.

By 1969, the Mustang was a key part of Ford’s lineup, with more engine choices and ways to buy a Mustang than ever before. Most Mustang fans look at 1969 as the pinnacle of Mustang design, so it’s a challenge to make a true, blue chip collectible even better than it already is. This lovely car succeeds in honoring the original, yet stretches the boundaries of your Mustang imagination. The bodywork on this lovely silver Mustang is simply excellent, with a modern interpretation of the classic fastback SportsRoof look evident everywhere. It’s clean and straight to a very high standard, with immaculate panel gaps and a lovely paint finish that simply glows. Every laser-straight body line is subtly highlighted as the light changes, and even the graphics are retro-style cool, kind of like a Boss 302 idea but with a modern look. It’s smoothed and lowered slightly, with a massive functional shaker hood scoop, and a stance that just screams ‘60s muscle. There’s a ton of traditional Mustang cool here, but with a definite modern look and attitude. The clean dash features retro-style modern gauges and a custom steering wheel with integrated sound system and cruise control. This beauty is certainly well-equipped with air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power locks and power windows. In true ‘60s style, there’s a great sound system, but instead of that 8-track your dad had, this one is fully digital. The seats are modern and well-bolstered but covered in a period vinyl look. It’s that careful blend of tech and classic that makes this Mustang such an impressive custom build. The 5.4-liter was the workhorse for many a Ford project and, with an aluminum block and heads, the car is exceptionally well-balanced. The big V-8 is clean and lovely, with custom heads making it really stand out. If you kick the supercharger in, you’ll know it in the seat of your pants. It uses a Tremec six-speed manual transmission to deliver that horsepower, with custom independent suspension and power disc brakes behind those big custom wheels.

It’s as if you can buy a modern version of a timeless classic - perhaps, just the way Henry Ford would have built it if he were alive today. To a casual observer, it’s a great looking Mustang and, to the hard-core Mustang guys, well, they’ll just stop and stare, because there’s a lot to see here. There is also no doubt that this lovely Mustang deserves all the attention is will surely attract. The more you look, the more you see – which has always been one of the definitions of a truly great design. This is certainly one of the cleanest and most innovative 1969 Mustangs that we’ve ever seen.
