Description

Because of its early introduction and extended production year, the 1969 model had several running changes made. Cars produced prior to July 1968 had a steering wheel pad with a much larger wood appliqué and Continental star logo than later cars. Cars produced prior to July 1968 featured a decorative stitching pattern on the face of the rear seat above the center arm rest. After July 1968 the seatbelt retractors were relocated and eight additional exterior color choices were added

Produced in the first year of production and finished in Emerald White, this handsome car is a lovely and desirable example of a typical but iconic American muscle car. For the Mark III series, the desirable Vinyl roof and leather seats were optional and this example on offer today comes provided with both.

Standard equipment for this year included power steering, electric windows, concealed headlamps, and split bench electrically adjustable front seats. The instrument panel and trim panels on the doors featured simulated wood appliqués in either English Oak or East-Indian Rosewood and after a few months, the Cartier-branded clock became standard equipment. The upholstery was either the standard vinyl with cloth inserts, or the optional leather. 

Gefertigt in Smaragdfarbenem Weiß, ist dieses schicke Auto ein schönes Beispiel eines typischen, aber ikonischen amerikanischen Muscle Car. Für die Serie III waren das Vinyldach und die Ledersitze optional, und dieses angebotene Auto bietet Ihnen beides.
Die Serienausstattung beinhaltete ebenfalls Servolenkung, elektrische Fenster, verborgene Scheinwerfer, und elektronisch regulierbare Vordersitze. Das Armaturenbrett und die Türenverkleidungen sind Holzimitate aus englischer Eiche und Ost-Indischem Rosenholz, und auch eine Cartier-Uhr gehörte bald zur Serienausstattung. Die Bezüge waren aus Vinyl mit Stoffeinsätzen oder optional aus Leder.
