1969 Mustang GT is a Rare R-Code Convertible
Being one of just 58, it's unlikely you'll see many of these up close: especially in this paint scheme!
This 1969 convertible Mustang GT was built in Dearborn, Michigan on June 18th, 1969. It was then shipped to North Halton Motor Sales in Ontario, Canada. While it's rare to see a 69' Mustang convertible in this condition, this car is even rarer. there were only 58 R-code convertible Mustangs built in 1969, and this is one of them.

Part of what makes this Mustang so special is the engine that lies under its hood. It's a top-of-the-line R-code 428 Cobra Jet RAM-Air unit. This 428 CI V8 pumps out a monstrous 335 horsepower.
Not only is the model itself rare, but so is it's paint. It comes in Royal Maroon with low white rocker panel stripes. The two-tone blackout hood accentuates this model's already aggressive look.
Nothing beats a convertible Mustang on a sunny day. This particular model comes with a power-operated black convertible top. So, if you do encounter some rain, it won't take too much time or effort to get the hood up.
This Mustang comes with Black Clarion knit vinyl interior and a tilt-away steering column. As you'd expect, the inside of this car is just as immaculate as the outside.
Being a GT model, this Mustang comes with plenty of extras as standard. Some of these features include hood pins, style steel wheels with GT hubcaps, and a pop open gas cap.
Old muscle cars don't have the best reputation for handling well, but this Mustang should be at least a little better. Being a factory GT model, it comes with heavy-duty suspension.
It also comes with a number of features which are taken for granted now but were a big deal in 1969. It has power steering and power front disc brakes. And, as mentioned earlier, it also has a power convertible roof.
This Mustang GT's steel wheels are wrapped by Goodyear Polyglas tires. This, coupled with the car's C6 Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, keeps it riding as smooth as possible.
All the Paperwork
As you'd expect with a car in this condition, it comes with all the paperwork that you'd want. The owner will receive a deluxe Marti report along with a Ford Motor Company shipping report. This model is expected to sell for between $150,000-$175,000.
