Pink 1969 Mustang Fastback Restoration
(C) 2007-2024 - all rights reserved.

This special order 1969 Sportsroof is being restored by David Laidlaw of Chesterfield, Derbyshire in the U.K. Hopefully we will get more photos as the restoration progresses. We think it maybe a late part of the Rainbow of Colors West coast promotion. David writes, Bought the car from Colorado Springs back in 2007. Comes with Marti Report verifying its authenticity. Car was a combination of grey primer and yellow when bought, but on stripping down all the internal box sections and floor pans were pink. Originally had a 6 cylinder engine but arrived with a 302 lump and a three speed top loader in the trunk. It is now undergoing a complete tear down and ground up restoration to restore it to its original colour. Bodywork was excellent apart from the rear, trunk and bottom of rear arches. Rear rails were excellent. I have also replaced a section of rear floor (small hole), front footwells and the inner panel below the battery tray. It still has original drivers door and tag (paint code blank, DSO 737479) and only the passenger door and hood have been replaced since it was built. I have restored the 302 lump and gearbox but have retained all the original spec running gear and replaced with new, like-for-like. Don't have a go at me for spraying the engine bay pink, I know it should be satin black but we tend to colour the bay up in U.K. restorations and I can tell you this involves a staggering amount of preparation to get it to look good. The car should be finished in the next year and will be running on original genuine Ford Magnum 500's that I have located. Exhaust is a Flowmaster twin pipe setup and all chromework has either been replaced or restored along with glass and new interior. Should look a right eyefull when complete and is probably the only 69 SportsRoof in the U.K. in pink and may only be on of a handful of survivors in the World. I have not come across another one to date.
