1969 Model Year Mach 1 Mustang
First generation Mustangs are always highly desirable classics, especially when they are in pristine order, and a special edition such as the Mach 1. The Mach 1 package first debuted in 1969 as a high performance add-on to the Mustang. This 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 has had an engine rebuild and some replacements done under the skin, including on the engine, and comes with just over 5,250 miles showing on the odometer.
The Mach 1 package added exterior enhancements to the already sharp looking first generation Mustang. Available only on the fastback body style, the Mach 1 package brought a matte black hood with pins, hood scoop, chrome gas cap, rear deck spoiler, revised wheels, and rear window louvres in matte black. All that is witnessed on this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that wears eye catching Competition Orange paintwork. The wheels are wrapped in suitably meaty and reportedly new BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires to complete the purposeful muscle car look. You’ve also got ample Mach 1 and 428 badges, alluding to what lies just beneath the scoop. The interior hosts an interplay of black and red and offers seating for up to four occupants. Like the exterior, this ‘Stang’s interior is in great condition, from the wood trim on the dash, to the clear gauge lenses. The radio cassette player appears to be a newer item that’s retro-styled, with the ventilation system controls just beneath. The trunk offers some luggage space alongside the spare wheel.
Let’s get to the most interesting part, which is what lies beneath the hood of this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The standard Mach 1 could be had with a 351ci V8, but options included the 390ci and 428ci Cobra Jet V8s. This car is blessed with the latter, a fire-breathing 428ci Cobra Jet V8 coupled to a three speed automatic transmission sending drive rearwards. With 335hp and 440lb-ft on tap, you can easily resurrect smoky burnouts Bandit-style. The engine has reportedly been rebuilt, and the seller also says that it’s received a new Holley carburetor, new radiator, and new battery. Matching with the refreshed powertrain, new brakes ensure that stopping power is up to par too.
