We could wax lyrical about the Ford Mustang; such is the number of examples that have passed through our hands. Introduced in 1964 as a 1965 model, the Mustang started the whole ‘pony car’ craze that continues to this day. There have been numerous special editions, one of which is the Ford Mustang Mach 1. Introduced in 1969, the Mach 1 is a performance package for the regular Mustang. This is a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 427 Custom Fastback from Colorado. With only 151 miles reported, this collector-owned example is said to be a rare find. What’s so rare about it? For one, it’s called the Sin City Shaker. Read on to find out more about the 1969 Mustang.
The Mach 1 typically saw some styling enhancements over the regular Mustang, aimed at making it look more muscular, aggressive, and potent. This 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 427 Custom Fastback comes in a menacing black paint job, punctuated by the shiny five-spoke alloy wheels that wear Firestone tires. A gold and white stripe runs down the side and proclaims that it is indeed a Mach 1. At the rear, a thin spoiler complements the iconic three-bar Mustang rear lamp clusters that are a styling hallmark to this day. The 1969 Mustang boss smack in the center hides the fuel filler. The interior continues the black theme, with black seats and a black ‘Sin City Shaker’ motif in the rear hatch. A no-nonsense gauge cluster communicates all relevant information to the driver, and there is little in the way of distractions for this performance-focused beast.
This 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 427 Custom Fastback features a 427ci (7.0L) SOHC V8 engine called the CAMMER. It’s fed by dual four-barrel carbs and drives the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. CAMMER engines were not sold to the public, but were built for tough and relentless competition use. Here’s where the name Sin City Shaker came in as well. These sinful engines could put out a mean 616hp on the factory dynos, but strap on the dual four-barrel carbs and they kicked out 657hp!
