This H-code sportsroof is ideal if you’re looking for a car to cruise and enjoy rather than trailer to shows.

I don’t think there will be many arguments that the 1969 Mustang sportsroof wasn’t a great-looking car. In fact, I might even go so far as to say it is the best-looking first-generation Mustang, offering just the right balance of clean lines and aggressive muscle-car details. From the high-beam headlights in the center grille opening to the built-in quarter panel scoops to the little uptick on the tail, Ford designers got this one exactly right. And since there were no “fastback” Camaros, this became the go-to performance look for Blue Oval fans who wanted to get noticed. Ford offered a dizzying array of models, engines, and options for the sportsroof, and this handsome 1969 Mustang is a great blend of features that exemplify why these cars remain popular, year after year. There’s a built 351 cubic inch small block up front, a luxury-oriented interior, and, of course, the brilliant fastback shape. If you want a Mustang that does everything well, including make your knees weak when you look at it, this is an excellent choice.

This H-code sportsroof is ideal if you’re looking for a car to cruise and enjoy rather than trailer to shows. That means it’s not exactly the way Ford built it, but the upgrades and modifications certainly make it a lot more entertaining to drive. It was also refinished in its original code P Winter Blue a few years ago, and with a fresh wet sand and buff, it has a great shine. It was originally delivered to Memphis, Tennessee and spent its entire life down south, so all the sheetmetal is original to the car and we see no evidence of patching or poor workmanship hiding underneath. The somewhat subtle color works rather well, proving that you don’t need Grabber Blue to make a statement. With a blacked-out hood, matching spoiler out back, and the satin black tail panel, it certainly has a nasty attitude, and the hood and quarter panel scoops add just the right amount of intimidation. We have restoration photos showing the car stripped down and in primer, and it’s clear they spent the time to get the panels to line up well—the gaps are clearly evident in our photos here. The hood latches neatly neither of the doors needs a huge slam to close properly, more indications that care was involved in its assembly. There are a few signs of use and the paint job isn’t perfect, but even from three feet away you’re not going to see any major flaws and this is a car that gets A LOT of respect on the street. You’ll also find new bumpers, crisp stainless details, and clean lenses that make it look more expensive than it is.

Code 2B Light Blue Kiwi bucket seats is how this one was ordered and that’s what’s inside today. With contrasting black carpets, it has a clean, well-dressed look and most of the upholstery is recent, including the seat covers and carpets. A modern 3-spoke wheel has been wrapped in black leather and frames a full set of factory gauges, all of which are operational. There’s no console, but the shifter for the C4 3-speed automatic transmission falls to hand easily and an aftermarket armrest with a pair of cup holders makes cruising effortless. A digital AM/FM stereo radio with iPod input replaces the original unit, and it powers a set of speakers in the dash and rear side panels so the upgrade is quite audible. The fold-down rear seat makes the sportsroof a practical pony car and someone has thoughtfully added a second 12V port under the dash to charge your phone or power your GPS. Obviously the plan was to drive this one. The headliner appears to be original, which speaks to the car’s overall condition, and aside from one tear on the right B-pillar, it’s in great shape. The trunk was finished with correct spatter paint and a new carpeted mat, and there are no surprises waiting underneath (remember that the gas tank is the floor of the trunk in Mustangs).

This car came with an H-code 351 cubic inch Windsor V8 originally, and that’s what living under the hood today. The 2-barrel carb is long gone, and the engine has been extensively upgraded, including Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads, a matching intake manifold, and 4-barrel carburetor, all of which add up to about 400 horsepower—considerably more than stock. It was painted Ford Blue so it looks right at home in the Mustang’s engine bay and then topped with an open-element air cleaner with reproduction decals. Up front there’s a giant aluminum radiator that has no problem keeping things nice and cool. You’ll also note that the power steering has been upgraded to a Borgeson setup that eliminates the sloppy-feeling hydraulic ram in favor of a modern power steering box. From behind the wheel, you’ll notice the difference immediately. It starts easily with an awesome exhaust note, and idles with the kind of performance lope that tells you there’s an upgraded camshaft inside. Nothing radical, but it sure doesn’t sound stock! This might just be the best-sounding car we currently have in the showroom.

You can see just how clean this car is by clanking underneath, where all the original floors are 100% intact. Factory spot welds are visible in all the right places and even the problem areas like the rear foot wells and rocker panel seams are completely unmarked. The torque boxes are solid and have not been cut or modified, so you know this car hasn’t been abused in the past. The FMX 3-speed automatic transmission offers clean, crisp shifts and quick downshifts when you poke the throttle, and with the 351’s flexible powerband, you’ll wonder why everyone makes a fuss over the 4-speeds. 3.00 gears out back make it a very comfortable cruiser that just loafs along at highway speeds. The exhaust system is recent and offers glasspack-style mufflers (remember what I said about the spectacular exhaust note) and terminates in four chrome tips for an awesome look to go with the sound. Power disc brakes give this Mustang substantial stopping power and there are a lot of new parts in the front suspension so it tracks rather well. Magnum 500 wheels are always the right choice, with these wearing staggered 215/70/14 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.

Documentation includes an original owner’s manual, Deluxe Marti Report, restoration photos, and receipts.

Fast, fun, and very attractive, this Mustang is everything you want a Mustang to be. Fastbacks will always be in demand and finding clean, unmolested cars is getting more difficult all the time. If you want one where all the heavy lifting is already done and all you have to do is get in and cruise, you won’t find many that do it better than this. Call today!
