Hello from TX!

Hello everyone. I’m not quite officially a member of the owner’s club just yet. Looking to buy a 67-69, but leaning toward splitting the difference with a 68.

I’m hoping to soak up all the knowledge available and find some like minded people to talk to.

Howdy! Out of curiosity, why those years? 67-68 are very similar, while 69 is a much different body style that is very similar to 70. I only ask because it’s a bit usual for someone to exclude a 70 from this kind of conversation.

The anvil of reality.

Welcome to VMF. 68 is a nice body style, I had a 68 GT Coupe back in the 80's.

BlakeTX, honestly there’s not a really good reason other than still being a little uneducated on when body styles changed. I’ve been looking almost exclusively at 67-68’s. Original searches included 69’s and 70’s, but I zeroed in on the earlier cars pretty quickly.

It might already be apparent, but I only recently started looking at classic mustangs.

No worries. We all gotta start somewhere. There's no wrong choices as far as years. Keep us posted on the hunt.

I actually think '69 was the best year ever. And I would not accept a '70. I don't like the headlights/grille nor the recessed taillights. But I am biased as this 45 year old photo shows.
