Body Styles (compare years, see more 1969 style information including Special Models)




The 1969 Mustang offered the largest selection of engines and sport/speed packages to date, with 10 engines available, 8 of which were V8s. Several levels of sport/performance packages were offered. The GT option ($147 base upgrade) was offered on all body styles which started with the 351ci Winsor V8, special handling options, racing stripes, dual exhaust, hood pin type latches, and styled wheels with Argent Silver trim and GT hubcaps.

The most popular sport/performance upgrade was the 1969 introduced Mach 1 (starting at $733 over the base V8 fastback or "SportsRoof" body) which came with one of four high-performance V8 engines, optional NASCAR-style hood lock pins, chrome styled steel wheels, chrome exhaust tips, color-keyed racing mirrors, and special handling. Two Cobra packages were offered: the Cobra jet with the 335hp (428ci V8) while the Ram Air induction 360hp (428ci V8) was offered on the Super Cobra Jet. The highest performance engine 370hp(429ci V8 semi-hemi big block) came on the 1969 introduced Boss which could also be ordered with a 290hp (320ci, V8, with special high volumetric efficiency "Cleveland" heads) engine. The Boss came with special "Hotchkiss" type rear suspension and many other performance options and body options to handle the larger power and seven-inch Magnum 500 rims. Like the previous year, an extensive list of luxury items was available for the fastback and hardtop; but an additional luxury set under the name "Grande" was offered for the hardtop. The Grande came with a vinyl roof, plush interior, two-spoke steering wheel, full wheel covers, etc. On all body styles, the indented sides scoop or cove was missing but an inverted side air scoop remained on the hardtop and convertible while the fastback had a higher backward C-shaped side scoop.

The Mustang was longer and lower with the windshield rake increased by 2.2 degrees. The fastback roof of the 1969 Mustang was redesigned and was named the "SportsRoof" whose name for the fastback lasted till 1973. Inspired by the popular Shelby, the front grille opening was larger, four headlights were installed, and the horse logo was mounted off-center on a red, white, and blue framed vertical box.
