1969 Mustang CJ Coupe>9T01R169999
« on: February 17, 2013, 01:12:14 pm »
This is my first post on this forum and appreciate any advice / tips. I have a 1969 Mustang CJ coupe going back together and am searching for any previous history / owner info.
Serial #9T01R169999 was originally a Lime Gold, shaker hood, 4 speed coupe sold at Harry Humphries Ford Inc. in January 1969. It was flat black when I purchased the car and with many missing parts. Just trying to piece together any previous life.

Thanks>JK

Sorry, we don't have any previous owner info for 9T01R169999. Note that the third character in the VIN is a zero.

Everyone notices that VIN ending in 9999. Also, thanks Scott>I corrected the "O" in the VIN to a "zero" as you noted.

Just good to know someone is reading...Thanks>JK

The car is currently sitting in my shop on sill clamps and jack stands. New rear springs/shocks, Detroit locker, sub-frame connectors / under ride traction bars / driveshaft loop (should not admit to these add-ons) just installed. Car has been in my shop on clamps / stands for 15 years.... finally have collected 98% of parts to get it back together.(Note: I have had daughters in university past ten years $$$.) Also using Lakewood scattershield, heavy clutch, long tube Hooker headers that came with the car.... probably too many personal touches but intend for car to look quite stock on14 inch painted / dog dish steel wheels that I do have mounted as motivation.

Sold my Chevrolet SSR truck to fund my Mustang project so I guess I am finally seeing the Blue Oval light.... I will post a picture.

Trivia>My first street car at 16 years of age was a 5 year old 1965 Mustang coupe purchased at the Sandy Elliott Ford dealership in Chatham, Ontario, Canada > Border Bandits. Shortly after buying, I was back at the dealership..... two of their Mustang CJ race car shells (red,white,black) on wheels (engines and trans removed) sitting high on the nose were for sale outside the dealership garage doors. I asked my Dad if I could get one of those.... his response was not favorable "Why would you want a car with no engine, painted like that, etc?" The asking price per car as I remember was about $100 more than I paid for the 1965 coupe. The legacy of these two race cars lives on this forum and they really were for sale as shells. Live and learn and remember..... that is well over 40 years ago.

Hello Tom,

Also glad that I found my way here. Your message had a tone of familiarity.... I just sometimes require prodding / hint or two to process information / join the dots.

You have a nice list of Ford collectibles... I just want to get one back together at present.

Thanks>John Kish

For what it's worth the original owner of 9T01R169999 found this thread and contacted me about getting in touch with the OP. I've sent him a note and am waiting for a response.

       Thats really a good surprise. After 47 years the original owner is still interested in his old car. There just has to be a ton of stories too be told.

Sounds like a way cool car but we need pictures even if it is under construction. Too bad that there is no way to research the ownership lineage of collector cars without committing a crime.    Dave R.
