LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1969 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
In 1969, Ford built nearly 300,000 Mustangs. Of those, 14,598 of them were convertibles, 50 of which were equipped with Q-code 428 Cobra Jet engines. Of those, this is one of only 20 equipped with a 4-speed, one of nine with the GT package and one of only two painted in Raven Black.
As per the Marti report, this rare Mustang was sold new at Ed Schmid Ford Inc. in Ferndale, Michigan on July 17th, 1969 to its first owner. It was ordered as it sits today in the highly collectible and ultra rare factory Raven Black exterior with a standard black interior, black manual top with black boot, electric clock, AM radio and power steering. The massive Q-code 428 Cobra Jet engine is backed by a factory close-ratio Toploader 4 speed and 9-inch rear end is supported by staggered shocks designed to dampen wheel hop during hard acceleration. This factory GT convertible is also equipped with the front spoiler, center console, bucket seats with headrests and period-correct “no size” Goodyear Polyglas tires.
Upon completion of a nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration, this Raven Black Cobra Jet GT convertible has been driven only a test miles since completion. The Q-code 428 Cobra Jet engine has been correctly detailed with Ford Corporate Blue paint, chrome air-cleaner lid, finned-aluminum valve covers, factory-style hoses and clamps, color-coded vacuum hoses and original finishes for all metal components.
As with other muscle cars built in the period, convertibles with high performance engine packages have always been the most sought-after by collectors due to their low production numbers. This 428 Cobra Jet convertible is no exception with only 50 ever produced, only 20 with a 4-speed transmission and only 2 in the most collectible factory color of all, Raven black.
