In 1969 Ford built 14,663 Cobra Jet Mustangs and Shelbys at three assembly plants. Subtract the 1,402 Shelby GT-500s built that year, one gets a total of 13,261 Mustangs. Most of these were built as Mach 1s or fastbacks, but only 243 were coupes. Of those, 105 were equipped with non-Ram Air 428 CJ engines.
A total of 90 non-GT R-code Mustang coupes were produced.
