Broken In: 1969 Ford Mustang SportsRoof

It is hard to argue that this car is not a barn find. It has been sitting for 30 years in Seymour, Indiana waiting to be rescued. Bought from an estate sale, the car can be seen here on eBay with two days remaining in the auction. This 1969 Ford Mustang fastback project is bid up to $6,200.

Equipped with a Ford 390 cubic inch V8 engine and automatic transmission, the Mustang is a non-running vehicle that will need a full restoration. The 390 cubic inch V8 engine produced 320 horsepower and 427 foot pounds of torque in 1969. The fastback version was called a Sportsroof by Ford Motor Company.

The black interior looks to have most of the components but they are dirty and deteriorated. The body of the Mustang was extended by 3.8 inches in 1969 and it was the first Mustang to use quad headlights. The seller states that the car has rust but is an original unmolested (also translated as uncared-for) example.

The tires on the passenger side of the car appear to be flat and the seller states that there is no title. How brave do you have to be to take this project on? The shock towers look good in the pictures but it may require an in person visit to completely analyze the car. Let me hear from the experts on this one!

    A non-Mach 1 S code? I am guessing this car is pretty rare….totally agree that this one needs an up close and personal visit…the way prices are going for these, this might be a bargain….

    I like it but underneath pictures would have put a comfort level on torque boxes, rails and floor. Its all available in repo parts but the big elephant in the room is the title.
    Whomever gets it will get a rebuilt title later but a BOS now.

    I know broadway title will get one for a couple hundred dollars. If you live in a BOS only state well. ..lets just say it can be accomplished without rebuilt title 😉

    I like it and could build it myself but need room to store.

    Its a good social distancing project requiring about 15 grand with paint and parts with sweat equity 👍

    If only a four speed 😉. I would probably store the auto and convert…

    Indiana cars don’t see the snow and salt that Michigan and other states do. Most are pretty good if they weren’t in northern Indiana by the Gary area. I’m glad to here someone that knows they can go through a car for a reasonable amount of money. Considering most all parts are there. I never add a price for my labor. That comes in when it’s time to sell. But for a person car you’ve got to have connections too. And I have those.

    S-code, all models, in ’69 was 9,440. I haven’t seen breakdown of Mach 1 versus non-Mach-1, but this is obviously a pretty rare car.

    Isn’t Seymour John Mellencamp’s home town?

    Great car depending on underside. I love S codes. Everybody fixates on CJs while 391 FE is only 15 hp less and WAY more engine than a 351.

    Nice looking old car. I’d buy it if it was closer. Just looking at the door seams they look uniform so I bet the torque boxes are in average shape. Big block ’69, heck ya…
