Ordering a 1969 Ford

Back in the day dealers did not stock nearly as many cars as they do today. At that time ordering a car just the way you wanted it was very common. There were few option packages and you picked individual options to customize your car to just the way you wanted it, or more likely, the way you could afford it. No wonder there are so many 1 0f 1 cars today!

When you walked into your local Ford dealer in 1969 to order your car you likely had visited the dealer sometime before and picked up one of their “Better Ideas from Ford” brochures. You had your choice of a full size Ford, mid-sized or compact plus the Mustang. 1969 was a very different time from 2018 in many ways. This Ford brochure represents not only the cars and options available but also a snap shot of the 1969 life style; from the wild paisley prints, the vivid colors, dance moves this Ford sales printed brochure says it all.

You can go through this booklet and design the options your Ford had to have to be cool in 1969.

How would you have designed your 1969 Ford?

About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.
