Ford uses a production date of July 4th for all ‘Special Production’ cars. These can be the promotional show cars used or ones for executives. With the number of options this car has it was clearly a unique car well suited to showing off the majority of options available. When it came to cruising in style, this car was well equipped!
This ’69 has survived largely unchanged in the last 46 years. Cosmetically the car still presents well for a car of this age. The paint has a nice shine and overall the car is nice & straight. The paint is older with some patina consisting mainly of small chips that have been touched up. There is a small bubble at the front of the driver’s door and another at the base of the fuel door.
The moldings appear to all be present with the normal wear on stock trim items. Consider this one a 15 footer, driving by it looks great. Get close and small imperfections become evident.
Inside the bucket seat interior presents well with some patina but the systems are all present and function correctly. The windows all work nicely, heater blows warm with a new heater core, wipers work, etc.
The 351 Windsor 4 Barrel engine fires up easily and has plenty of power with a factory rating of 290 Horsepower and 385 pound feet of torque. The automatic goes into gear quickly and shifts properly. The 9” differential is geared for freeway hauling with a ratio of 2.75’s.
The factory Power Disc Brakes work excellent and haul the car down from speed easily. The Power Steering helps you cruise the tightest parking lots with a single finger.
The convertible top still works nicely. The upholstery is definitely ready to be replaced though. New tops typically cost $800-$1000 installed for a reference. It can be handled yourself if you have some (a lot of) patience and some basic
mechanical skills for around $400.
