There were 4,973 Mustang GT's made in 1969

The Deluxe Interior had sculptured door panels, lot's of simulated wood grain accents on the console and dash, a different instrument arrangement and high-back bucket seats. The Deluxe Interior was standard equipment on the Grande, Mach 1 and Boss 429 models.

Not sure where that number came from, Kevin Marti has it as 6,694. That's 1,483 coupes, 4,084 Sportsroofs, and 1,127 converts.

The base engine for a GT was the H code (351 2v) same as the Mach.

Now here's where it gets confusing........

The H code Mach was the only Mach to come standard with single exhaust, dual was optional. M code (351 4v) and higher engined Machs got dual exhaust standard.

But, the H code GT got dual exhaust standard, and the same with any other higher engined GT.

Hopefully a 1969 convertible or Sportsroof (non Mach or Boss) for next Mustang project

Trying to find my father's 1973 Mustang Grande he bought brand new. 3F04F126773 last known registration and title was in New Jersey, 1982.

Default 1969 gt

My 69' GT is Acapulco blue with white interior with a black non functional hood scoop , hood pins , front lower spoiler , rear spoiler , and window slates , guad chrome exhaust tips , Gt stripes very low on the car . chrome wheels with GT center caps , GT gas cap , heavy duty suspension , 390 4V aluminum mid rise (fomoco) manifold "also known as the police intercepter manifold" also has GT coded exhaust manifolds , C-6 trans , and 3:91 rear end . Very pretty color combo and fast and handles great. Found it in 1980 sitting behind a gas station in Linden N.J. The original owner said he ordered it this way with the added options and raced it on sundays at RacewayPark in Englishtown N.j.
