Looking For My Dads 69 B2
« on: October 23, 2018, 01:42:28 pm »
My dad had a yellow 69 B2 he bought around 1975. It had the cheap black interior with headrest on the seats, blacked out hood, service block, no rev limiter, 3.50 posi, argent magnums, and rear wing spoiler. He sold it around 1992 and iirc to a guy in alabama. My dads name was Carey Bankston in Jackson Mississippi. I do not know the vin but it was the 52nd B2 made. If anyone here owns the car please contact me. I know this is a real long shot without a vin and not every B2 owner is on here , I know that for a fact.

Was he ever in the military?

I owned a yellow '69 B2 once, and I seem to remember the PO saying he got it from someone in the military.  I found this one in Kentucky, for what that's worth.

Just curious, how do you know it was the 52nd Boss 302 built?

The car was bought from the original owner that lived in Jackson Mississippi. The car was bought new iirc from East Ford in Jackson Ms. My dad along with a friend named Mark Smith(RIP) that was the head of the mississippi SAAC chapter found that it was the 52nd built. From 1973 until Marks death and my dads death 2 years ago they were heavily involved in early mustangs and shelbys. I have owned may early mustangs since 1973 and own a ragged out rusted out 69 B2 project car now. I would like to find my dads old B2. I won a lot of drag races and auto crosses with it in the 70's. My foot was always to the floor. What a fun car to drive. And I always liked the 69 better than the 70 and the yellow color best.

P.S. My dad had steel pins in a leg and was never in the military. My dad always lived in Mississippi.
