1969 Ford Mustang
The high performance Ford Mustang

1969 Ford Mustang

For 1969 Ford restyled and enlarged the Mustang. The Mustang had quad headlights for the first time with the outer ones mounted deep into the fenders and the inside ones mounted in the grille area. The side scoop was mounted higher on the rear fenders on the fastback models than the previous years and on the hardtop and convertible models it was in the same place but it now faced rearward. The Mustang had a high performance theme for 1969 with the release of the Mach 1 model. It came with a standard 351-cid V-8 standard but had the options of a 390-cid or the 428-cid Cobra Jet V-8 engines. With Trans-Am road racing being popular at this time, Ford released another model known as the Boss 302 Mustang and the Boss 429 Mustang
