Constructed by Dillon’s Rod and Customs in Barnum, Iowa, this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 restomod began as an original Mach 1 Mustang with a verified VIN and build codes. New interior parts, body panels, and glass were fitted along with a 5.0 Coyote engine and 6-speed manual transmission as part of a bespoke build which cost over $148,000 to complete in 2016. About 300 miles have been added by the current owner, bringing the post-restoration mileage to 985. This 1969 Mach 1 restomod is now being offered on consignment with a clean Tennessee title, clean Carfax, and extensive build photos and documentation.
Enthusiasts familiar with the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 will note the altered body lines of this restomod Mach 1, especially at the hood, tail, and rear quarter panels. Wilwood disc brakes are visible through the 20” American Racing wheels. New glass was added along with custom grill trim, hood pins, bumpers, and tail lights. Though extensive custom bodywork was performed during the rotisserie restoration, this Mach 1 retains much of its original chassis underneath. It is said to be in flawless cosmetic and mechanical condition throughout. Inside, this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 restomod has been updated with power windows, power leather seats from a 2013 Mustang, and a heater, air conditioning, and power steering system from Vintage Air. Dakota Digital VHX gauges were added and a passenger display was inlaid above the glove compartment. A bespoke wiring harness runs the length of the car. The digital odometer shows that 985 miles have been added since the restoration was completed in 2016.
Under the modernized skin, this Mach 1 packs an equally modern driveline – a 2013 Ford 5.0 Coyote engine backed by a 6-speed manual transmission and a 9” 3.70 posi rear end. The updated fuel system consists of a new injection pump, sending unit, lines, and a one-off stainless steel fuel tank. The minimalist engine bay contains a Wilwood master cylinder, upgraded cooling system, and custom fabricated hood hinges. Comprehensive build photos are available upon request and a general overview of parts and upgrades can be found below.
