Mustang Mach 1
SUPER SLICK MACH 1, 428 COBRA JET V8, 4-SPEED, FRONT DISC BRAKES, LOTS OF DOCS!!
A thorough and skillful restoration, with some well-chosen upgrades added to the mix, has elevated an already impressive Mustang to a whole new level. This 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is one very sharp looking, strong running Pony. It's sure to make an impact at local cruise nights and car shows and comes complete with a collection of restoration documents and receipts to chronicle the work that's gone into bringing it to its current stellar state.
This Mustang debuted at a time when the model was reaching its absolute peak of popularity and, as a Mach 1, is a member of a special class that enjoyed spectacular success upon its release. With the addition of a special color scheme as well as the signature fastback-shaped, Sportsroof configuration, Mach 1s offered so much style and so many powerplant options that they unwittingly overshadowed their stablemate GTs, outselling them by multiples and indirectly leading to their discontinuation. Ford's Wimbledon White paint looks as good as ever here, with a nice shine and a smooth even texture and the Mach 1 dressing, which includes a broad black accent over the scooped hood, as well as stripes running the lengths of the sides, is in fine form, showing a uniform deep color and nice, sharp edges. The exterior fittings that make up so much of a vintage Mach 1s visual identity are looking great here -the front air dam, rear spoiler and window louvers are all in good shape.
Climb inside the cockpit and take a glance around - you'll see plenty of evidence of the craftsmanship that went into this restoration. The front buckets and rear bench seat wear well-fitted black vinyl covers that show almost no signs of wear and the center console seems as if it's yet to even have had an elbow rested on it. Above, the headliner is nice and snug, while below the clean black carpeting lining the floor is punctuated by a pair of Ford Racing floor mats in front. The assortment of woodgrain accents throughout the interior faithfully recreates the look of the original Mach 1s and all of it, from the panel surrounding the gauges in the instrument panel, to the door panels and center console that features a Hurst floor shifter, is in top notch condition.
Release the pins, raise the hood and you'll see a nicely detailed engine compartment, at the center of which an expansive 428 Cobra Jet that now sits in place of the original 351. The Cobra Jet was the top rung motor choice in Mach 1s of this era, so this is a fitting upgrade. With its proper Shaker scoop sitting over the added 4-barrel carb, the engine looks very much at home here - all the right steps were taken to ensure that this swap was a clean one. The inclusion of stock intake and exhaust manifolds, as well as factory style decals in all the right places, give the compartment a thoroughly authentic appearance, while an added Comp cam equips the powerplant with a little extra muscle, sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission for a compelling "hands on" driving experience. You'll find disc brakes up front to equip this Pony with fade resistant stopping power as it cruises on its set of 15" chrome Magnum 500 tires wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A Radials. Below, the undercarriage looks well-positioned for plenty more miles of vintage driving enjoyment.
Just a quick glance at the ultra-sharp exterior of this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I is enough to draw you in and its abundant power offers an outstanding classic driving experience. Call today!
