Brief History on the 1969 Mustangs
The 1969 restyle increased body length by 3.8 inches (97 mm), and was the first model to use quad headlamps placed inside and outside the grille opening. It featured a 302 CID (4.9 L) V8 engine with 220 hp (164 kW). The coupé was longer than previous models and sported convex rather than concave side panels. The new Mach 1, with a variety of new powerplants, added many car styling and performance features. It used dual exhausts and steel wheels with bold-lettered Goodyear Polyglas tires. Reflective striping was placed along the body sides, with a pop-off gas cap, matte-black hood with simulated air scoop and NASCAR-style cable and pin tiedowns. A functional “shaker” hood scoop which visibly vibrated by being attached directly to the air cleaner through a hole in the hood was available, as were a tail-mounted wing and chin spoilers and rear window louvered blackout shade. The Boss 302 Mustang was created for Trans Am rules, The Boss 429 was also offered with a larger engine.
