Are these pics taken at Indore because thats where it was restored and when it was bought by Manvendra it did'nt have mags, it had steel wheels (as shown in your pic) with hubs...and the pic I saw when the car was purchased....well they had the wheels Im talkin about. Maybe its a difrent car ure talking about, maybe the owner likes to change his wheels once in a way maybe he changes it every day...who're we to argue... but the fact is the pics i saw had magnums ...unless he showed me pics of another car !! Arree kya farak padta hai yaar....Big deal if he changes the wheels every day.

Do you know if the current owner has done anything else?

Nope dont think hes done anything else on the car. I think the windscreen was cracked but he did get a new one fixed in fact im pestering him to enter it in the vcci car rally on the 4th. And if he does enter no guesses for who'll be driving it (eat ur heart out now buddy...NOW!!) coz hell be driving one of his older beauties
I hope he does coz he said he was having problems with it..guess ill go over and check it out.

By calling the color, "Bullitt green", I presume you're alluding to the "Highland Green" 1968 Ford Mustang GT-390 Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 movie Bullitt, shot in San Francisco.



The 1969 Mustang never came in Highland Green. It had a very very dark green called Black Jade.
The other colors available were:
Royal Maroon, Raven Black, Pastel Grey, Aztec Aqua, Gulfstream Aqua, Lime Gold, Wimbledon White, Winter Blue, Champagne Gold, Candyapple Red, Meadowlark Yellow, Indian Fire, NewLime, Silver Jade and Acapulco Blue.

It would seem that the original color of this specific 1969 convertible was "Indian Fire" when purchased.

And having a 302 V8 with 2-bbl (non-BOSS) carb and automatic transmission,
the VIN would be 9503F1xxxxx.

The BOSS 302 had a 4-bbl carburettor and would have a VIN=9503G1xxxxx.

The aim was to get close to bullitt with what shade was available at the time. (Long boring story). Was Wimbledon White actually, if I remember correctly. Don't be fooled by the red, it was a shoddy local job done in Mumbai. You are right about the engine. Its not a BOSS, dont know who started that rumour. Just Boss style half stripes and Mach1 style black bonnet as I mentioned earlier. @kanak- Same car

I finally saw this green 'stang after years. those wheels really do not suit this car at all. It was parked right outside the Vintage rally, and the owner seemed to be a nice chap. Say's he bought it off the original lady owner and it was in real rough shape when he got it. I wonder if he's a member here.

Thank you for the advice Sirjee, but he has no problem with it, so you shouldn't either.
