It's only recently that when you wanted to buy a new car with certain options that you could find almost exactly what you were looking for on dealer lots. Most cars come pretty loaded these days so that has a lot to do with that too.
Back in the day, many options were a la carte and they were not bundled together like they are today. Years ago customers who were willing to wait weeks if not months for their new car could custom order it. On older cars, it's not unusual to find cars equipped with power windows but not door locks and vice versa, tilt columns and AM radios, leather interiors with manual seats. Bucket seats and no console? Why not?
It also explains why this car has a 429 "ThunderJet" V-8 with dog dish, "poverty hub caps", manual transmission, manual brakes (no booster) and no air conditioning. It at least has power steering but even in 1969, that came standard on full size Fords. Someone must have really wanted all the torque that big mill provided while skimping on just about all other creature comfort and convenience options. Did they have a boat or liked to win drag races?
The smorgasbord of options meant that no two cars would be, in theory at least, the same. That sounds great but the problem was that meant that those two different cars would be truly different and that led to assembly issues since the factory was not building any two cars just alike; this led to build quality issues. Today, options are limited to packages and there aren't many permutations of cars save for color, interior trim and perhaps wheels and tires.
BTW, my palms get sweaty just thinking about what a handful this car would be to drive. Power steering was way over boosted back then in general and combined with Ford's notoriously sloppy suspension set ups and those manual brakes, this was not a car for someone who didn't like to "drive".
Someone who didn't really like to drive a car that looked like a luxury car on the outside but was really just an overpowered stripper. A custom ordered, overpowered stripper at that. Still, this would no doubt be fun to spend an afternoon with. An afternoon in a big, wide open parking lot with nothing else in it.
