This '69 sits in a pretty good spot for the enthusiast looking to either enter the market or one who is looking for their builder. This one was delivered new to Sunny California and then relocated to Las Vegas where it lived until coming to Washington a few months ago. As such it is very solid and without much of the typical rust & corrosion.
The Marti Report shows this was a nicely equipped car for the day. The 351 Windsor family is known for their durability and low end grunt. The brakes are Power Front Discs, steering is power as well. The interior features the 'Sport Deck' rear seat which is also known as the Fold-Down rear seat.
Paint wise, this one is on the tired side. It has some failing clear and touch ups. This one is a 30 footer but really has it where it counts. Whether you are looking for a driver or a builder a good body is first and foremost. The quarters, floors, rockers, frame rails, etc are all the born with pieces. The only obvious rust of note is in the passenger rear quarter and a soft spot (no holes) in the driver's front floor. Clues to the original Pastel Gray, which is basically white, are everywhere. The floors still wear a bright coat as does the trunk. Both testaments to a solid car that never saw salt.
Inside the black interior is still largely original. Its tired and showing its age. The original seats are still in place which is great for future restoration work. The fold down rear seat is still in place and functioning. These seats alone now command over $2k. Obviously it could be used as is and worked over once the time & budget allow.
Under the hood a set of Cobra valve covers and 14" air cleaner were added to dress things up. The big deal under here is the 351 Windsor which just happens to be the 'born-with' motor so its stamped with the car's VIN. 1969 Windsor engines are unique in that they have the strongest & heaviest production Windsor blocks and specific small combustion chamber heads. The engine doesn't appear to have ever been removed either. As is typical of the breed the rubber valve stem seals fail and there is some smoke at start up. This is a straight forward fix if you want or just do a rebuild with some good modern upgrades to bring performance to a more modern level. The Edelbrock kit makes a touch over 400 reliable horsepower and all the parts are matched for ease of ordering.
The FMX transmission goes into gear quickly and shifts properly. These are tough transmissions.
The 351 option mandated a 9" rear end upgrade so you have no worries about adding too much power up front.
The wheels are factory styled steel units for 1969. New 225 70 Cooper Cobras were just installed.
The undercarriage pics show rear air shocks that have since been replaced with some KYB Gas-Adjust units.
