Awe-inspiring 1969 Mustang Looks Too Good to be True

1969 Ford Mustang Convertible

Restored 1969 Mustang retains its original 351 V8, is part of the Joop Stolze Collection in the Netherlands.

A long time ago, the Netherlands was the second nation in the world to recognize the United States as an independent nation (the first was Morocco). Thus began a long-standing, peaceful trans-Atlantic relationship between the two nations, which includes things like the Dutch-American Friendship Treaty (allowing American entrepreneurs easier access to the Dutch economy), and an easier exchange of goods and services.

One such example of the enduring relationship is this 1969 Mustang convertible we found the other day, which is heading to auction in Maastricht, Netherlands January 12.

A part of the Joop Stolze Collection in De Lier, Netherlands, the red-on-black Mustang convertible went through a restoration a few years ago, and retains its original 351 V8.

The Mustang’s black interior looks good, and as the photo shows, the car still gets its exercise now and again. Definitely not a trailer queen.

Ready to welcome the cool summer months in Maastricht, nearby Belgium, and all through northern Europe, the Mustang has its Dutch registration and documentation from the local RDW (Dutch DMV) in order. Not a bad way to make a few friends, either.

The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive expert is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
