'69 2-Door Hardtop w/factory 302
« on: February 01, 2007, 01:49:31 PM »
I have rcently acquired a '69 2-door hardtop with a factory 302.  It is all original with 81,000 orginal miles and has had only one owner(a little old lady bought it new).  Can anyone help me find out anything about this car.  I was told that only 12 were made and shipped to different dealers in California to be used as display/demo models.  Any information anyone can give me or direct me to where I can find the information myself, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Russ

With the information you are giving us there is nothing telling us it's a rare model. I had a 69 hardtop Mustang with a 302 and there was more hardtop Mustangs produced than fastbacks and the 302 engine was one of the most common engines.
The mileage and the shape of the car can make it very valuable but other than that it seems like a basic Mustang.
If you still have the door tag this could give you more information.

Will get back to you with the other information and numbers.  Still have the door tag also. When I go to NADA to get an estimated value, the 302 is not an option.  They claim to only have been built with 351's and straight 6's.  Thanks for your help.

It seems they are wrong. You can see how many 1969 302 coupes are for sale on Ebay here:

Here is also a list of options available at that time including the 302 engine:

Ok Im with thierry on this one.  I have a book just on the 1969 and in that year the 302-c.i.d 2v is listed as a RPO and that is the only way it is offered.

RPO = Regular Production Option


in 1969 it says that the only motors offered were

200   (Six-Cylinder)
250   (Six-Cylinder)
302   (2v)
302   (4v "Boss")
351   (2v)
351   (4v)
390   (4v)
428   (4v Non-Ram-Air)
428   (4v Cobra Jet "Ram-Air")

the only limited production in 69 would have been the boss 302 and then maybe the shelbly but Im thinking they made a few more shelbys then they did the boss.

Now if this car has some paper work with it showing that it was something made for upper managment or like you said as a demo then you may have something, but they would have to have some major paper trail to go with them or the vin number listed somewere.

My books don't show anything like that.  Sorry I couldnt be more help

Sounds like you have a cherry classic there.  For 17 bux, I think I would get a Marti report and document everything.

My 69 hardtop with factory air and power steering shows an F code on the Vin code plate which stands for 302 engine with a 2v carb. Am I correct and is this a rare engine in my car.  Just wondering after reading the above posts.

I was also under the impression that there were fewer hard top 69's built than fast backs. At least you see more fast backs around.

The fastbacks may be more valuable for those looking to restore a classic, and that may be why you see more of them on the street now than the hardtops.

If you mean insurance, yes.  But if you are asking about Ford replacing parts at the expense of an extended warranty company, I doubt it.  They all have like a 10 year program.

Again, I doubt it.  Who in their right mind would offer an extended warranty on a classic Mustang?   ;D Especially since many of the classics have been altered way beyond factory specs.
