Classic Mustang — First car. Was bought my grandparents restored it twice. Last time setup for drag racing Had 415 hp and a 150hp nitrous shot. Sold to friend from highschool and he is driving as a pleasure vehicle. Love the looks but preferred the fast back may own fastback in the future.

Pros

My favorite year Mustang of all time.  I had one once when I was in college and will always think of it as the one that got away.  I sold it to buy my first Corvette (1970 Coupe) which seemed like a good idea at the time.  Would love to find another one someday.

Cons

I don't still have it.

1969 Mustang Mach I — Awesome styling & performance. One of the best examples of American muscle of all time. Small block Ford with plenty of power. Great handling car for its day. The '69 was the only year for this front grill treatment which always stands out in a crowd.

1969 Mustang Mach 1 — The best of the mustang classic design, excellent appearance, with a 351 w, that gave me all the torque i need, not the best handling, because still stock, the interior its beautiful because combine the look of the wood and chrome

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Had This Car Since 1982, She's My Baby — Great performance, shreds tires easily, gas mileage sucks, 6.5 in town, 11 on the road. Really gets attention everywhere you go. Maintenance is a snap, just have to pull the engine to change spark plugs,LOL. Love this car! It's totally awesome!!!!

Pros

Apperance, performance, the ability to smoke the tires when desired

Cons

Gas milage and the fact that I don't get to enjoy it so much due to the short swedish summer

Mustang Mach 1 — The -69 Mustang is the best looking Mustang in my opinion. This is the year when ford got it all right! I've tuned my 351 windsor engine to approximately 400 hp so the fun factor is there too. My car hit the streets this year after a 3 year restoration. The only negative with this car is the gas milage but that doesn't matter when I get many more smiles per miles.

Not Special Just Fun — It was my Dads car and it only has 23,500 on it. Lots of sentamental value, says enough. I inherited the car and have no plans on selling it. One day I will donate it a museum or give it back to Ford for thier museum.

Can't really say it's safe to leave to my kids.I got it slightly trashed needed a lotof work, took the time spent $$$ Blue printed the Cleveland, came in at 11.5 to 1 comp. 365 HP Dyno'd at rear axle. Very fast, spooky torque curve from 2800 up to 6500 could leave a scratch at 65 mph. B&M kit, torrington needle beerings, torque Converter 11 inch holeshot. Needed 105 Octane aviation purple mixed with pump Ethyl.

1969 Mustang Coupe — Timeless classic. My dad bought the car off of my friend's brother and it sat in the backyard pretty much unused for over 15 years. Two years ago I decided to get it fixed up thinking it would just take a new interior, engine rebuild, new paint and tires. What actually happened was putting in all new equipment.
