1969




1969 was not only the end of a decade, it was the end of an era.

With the Moon Landing, Woodstock, the Beatles break up, psychedelics, Nixon/Agnew, Vietnam protests, civil rights, NHRA Drag racing, NASCAR, pro basketball, hippies and Heavy weight boxing, the decade played its turbulent swan song with a forte' !!

Heroes was heroes.

Auto styling reached it's zenith with the fabulous newly introduced ''Sports roof '' Mustang! With it's intimidating ''Shaker'' ram air hood scoop, racing mirrors, Sports Slats, and plush interior, the new Mach 1 was a sight to behold. The blackout hood treatment reduced road-glare for the serious drivers benefit.

If you were one of the fortunate few to be able to aquire one of these with the new 428 CJ or 428 SCJ super 'stangs, stoplight starts seldom start slow. Very few muscle-cars had the testosterone to form a legitimate threat.

BOSS 429. Classic Muscle Car personified.

The fabulous Boss 429 was originally produced to compete in NASCAR races. Ford wanted to develop an engine that could whip Chrysler's 426 Hemi in NASCAR's Grand National Division. 500 cars had to be fitted with this motor and sold to the general public to comply with NASCAR's homologation rules.

Ford hired a company called Kar Kraft in Michigan to modify existing 428 powered Mach 1s to accomodate the new Boss 429 engine which was rated conservatively at 375 hp with 450 foot pounds of torque. Actual output of the Boss 429 engine was well over 500 horsepower .

857 Boss 429 Mustangs plus 2 Boss 429 Cougars were built for 1969 .

Boss 302 powered Mustangs made their presence felt in the Trans Am racing circuit.

The standard engine in the Mach1 was the 2v 351 Windsor (H-code). The (M-code) Windsor 4v was the standard engine in the 1969 Shelby GT-350.

Ford was now running in direct competition with Shelby in this, the final year of the Shelby Mustang production. To clarify this statement, unsold 1969 Shelbys received minor modifications then re-numbered and sold as 1970 models.

A special version of the Mustang coupe, called the Grande' was introduced in 1969. The Grande'featured a special deluxe interior similar to the Mach1 and a vinyl roof.
