My daughter pulled the trigger and decided to sell her '69 coupe and purchase something more economical to drive. She put the car on Craig's List on New Year's Eve, and sold it to the first person that looked at it, in less than 24 hours. Kind of sad to see it go, but it was the right decision for her.

These are some of the pics we put on Craigslist.

I bet she'll never forget that car.

I know my first Mustang stayed with me, and it's what motivated me to find a Mustang a couple of years ago. It's definitely sad to see cars with so much history leave the barn.

Can I ask what color that car is?

I like that color but with this monitor it looks like a 'slate blue' color. Looks good on that car but I doubt it's a factory color so I have no clue what it is.

Nice car, no wonder first person grabbed it.What a way to start the new year. Sounds like it was a good deal for both of them.

That is a VERY sharp '69 coupe. I don't care for those year coupes but I like that one. A set of Magnums and a drop and it would be perfect.

Yeah, those first Mustangs stick with you. I had to sell my 68 fastback when I went to college and I still miss that car. I was looking at new Mustang GT's when they came out but I ended up going back to my first love; vintage Mustangs. Hopefully, I can hold onto this one for a while. Sorry your daughters 69 had to go...good looking car.

Boy, you were very misguided at first....I feel the same way about 71-73...Although I seriously looked at a 72 Mach back when I was 19... Had a verbal agreement and went back the next day to seal the deal...had some Armor-All in my other car and started working on the Mach while I waited for the owner to get off of work and meet me....COme to find out he had sold it after I had left the night before...Yeah, I was cleaning someoneelse's interior..Niccccee

So this means you do not need the 69-70 power steering cylinder "ram" I have waiting by the front door here? (haha)

I'm sure it's sad to see it go. She'll have great memories.

You just need to work on an EconoStang for her to get her back in the group.
Some thing like this:
-Orig 6 cyl. maybe w/ fuel injection if there is a way or late model V6.
-Better spark
-T5 or AOD overdrive.
-Tall highway gears.
-15" or 16" wheels to make the final ratio even higher.

I think some thing like this would be a great build for one of the magazines given the price of fuel.(remember you heard it here first Jim Smart)
It might not have much torque but I bet you could get 30 mpg or better if setup right. My '92 5.0 AOD got 27 mpg with the top down on I5 on the trip back from buying it from my Uncle in So-Cal.
The '66 I6 C4 coupe I had before the 1965GTFB got 26 mpg.

Start looking for that EconoStang project John.
