This is a website about the Best 1969 Ford Mustang Convertible ever (okay, so it is a little bit of a biased opinion, but still true).


Hopefully this will serve as a good reference for any Classic Mustang Enthusiasts and views can learn from the trials and modifications that it took to get my mustang to how it is today.


I have had this 69 Mustang since I was 17 (back in 1997).  Over the years I have been constantly making modifications, etc. to this car.

The links to the left include most of the upgrades/modifications that I have done to my car.  I am not affiliated with any these companies in any way or gain from sales, etc.  I just want to share what in my opinion are the best options (also the worst) from over a decade of the 'trials and tribulations' with this ongoing project (a classic car has no completion date).


Even if you have a car like this, for some reason, it is almost impossible to find someone who will do a good job or respect your car when working on it.  Almost everything I had someone do for me on this car, I had to eventually redo myself or it was just done 'half-assed' or not even completed.  If you are particular or even semi-particular, I would suggest doing the work yourself.  No one will respect or take the time that it takes to do a project right other than yourself for almost all aspects of 'Your Baby'.


Here is a snapshot of the Major upgrades done to this car:
- New Engine with 427 Aluminum Shelby Block Bored Out to a 496 (615 HP with 93 Octane and idles easily at 700 RPM) - Built by Keith Craft

- New Cloth Top, Frame Sand Blasted and Painted, and Converted from Manual to Power Setup - Grant's Auto Trim
- Interior Completely Restored (Including Gauges and Clock Quartz Conversion) - Grant's Auto Trim
