1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

There's not much argument that the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 isn't one of the best-looking Mustangs of all time, perhaps even one of the best-looking muscle cars of all, too. So with this one, they took one real-deal Mach 1, stuffed it with a smooth-running 351, ordered lots of options then went out to have some fun. If you like your muscle fast AND nimble, this is an awesome choice.A quick glance at the door tag will tell you all the important stuff about this sportsroof Mustang, including that it is indeed a real Mach 1 and that it was originally Silver Jade with a blacked out hood. Not that there's anything wrong with the original combination, but when given the chance, this one got a fresh coat of bright Candyapple Red, an equally attractive and period correct choice, and we sure won't argue with how great it looks on this Mach 1. As a result, it's big and bold, with a hint of sophistication, which is how the Mach 1 was positioned when it was new. The bodywork is good and straight, and they were careful to include all the important details like the hood pins, hood scoop, and Mach 1 stripes on the flanks and surrounding the tail panel. Gaps are quite good and the paint is holding up rather well despite the fact that it was painted a few years ago and has been properly enjoyed ever since. And there aren't many cars that look better, especially when dressed up with window slats and a rear spoiler. Even the chrome is nice and shiny, despite much of it being original.The interior sticks to the factory specifications and despite much of it being original (or at least an older replacement) it looks pretty good, including the seat covers on the high-back buckets. The more luxurious woven seat inserts with red stripes always identify the luxury Mach 1 package, and this one also has a wood-rimmed wheel that feels right, and you know we dig the no-console industrial-strength look of the Hurst shifter on the transmission tunnel. The gauges are in good original condition with some fading and clouding on the lenses, but that's a pretty minor nit to pick in an otherwise very nicely done interior. The combination of luxury and performance offered in the Mach 1 means that there are woodgrained details to warm up the interior plus an AM/FM radio in the center stack. The fold-down back seat makes the Mustang a surprisingly practical piece of muscle, and the trunk is neatly outfitted with a correct mat.A freshly-detailed 351 cubic inch V8 is based on a Windsor block, which was how this car originally left the factory. It's been upgraded with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, but it remains hidden under the open-element air cleaner to help it blend in. In fact, the whole engine was bathed in Ford Blue, including the stamped steel valve covers, so it looks very stock and a reproduction '351' decal on the air cleaner helps with the authentic look. A great-sounding dual exhaust system offers the proper Mustang soundtrack and while the undercarriage wasn't restored, it's in good condition overall. The 4-speed manual transmission feeds a 9-inch rear with 3.00 gears inside, so it remains a great highway car that doesn't get tiresome on long highway trips. Vintage Magnum 500 wheels with 205/70/14 front and 215/70/14 rear redline radials finish the look.Not destined to be a trailer queen, but this Mustang delivers a lot more performance than you'd expect from a vintage pony, particularly a small block, and looks great doing it.
