and which was produced on October 30th, 1968 and originally delivered to the 'Hammer Ford' dealership of Keysville, VA and sold on 5/16/1969. This is a rare example of only 6,473 cars built with these engine & transmission codes and 1,874 with these Paint/Trim Codes. There is no rust or signs of any accidents. It was sold in 2010 at the Barrett Jackson auction in Palm Beach, FL with a reportedly original 28K documented miles but unfortunately the documentation is no longer available. Nevertheless the car is the recipient of a complete rotisserie restoration and retains all its original body panels. The underside is it's original detailed correct red oxide and please note that the car has a recent 'Deluxe Marti Report' to substantiate all it's options and originality.
The Mach 1 debuted in 1969 as the mainstream high performance Mustang, taking over from the GT. Two and four barrel 351's were offered plus the four barrel 390 and the 428 CJ and CJ-Ram-Air. Unlike the GT option, the Mach 1 model included a special interior that featured many of the Deluxe decor Group items plus high back bucket seats and special carpet. The Mach 1's original recipe was simple: It started with a V8 powered 'Sportsroof' body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing options which the car proudly boasts including the Blackout hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Ram Air Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, Magnum 500 wheels, chrome exhaust tips, deluxe interior with in dash tachometer, dual color keyed racing mirrors, unmissable livery and chin spoiler and rear deck spoiler.
Through 1968 the Shelby's had been recognized as racier looking Mustangs with higher output V8's but in 1969, as Shelby began using their own unique fiberglass front ends, Ford began a 'duplication of effort' and responded with the Boss Fastbacks and Mach 1's to compete against the higher priced Shelby's. The optional and top-of-the-line rarely ordered 428 Cobra Jet 'Big Block' Ram Air engine was the ultimate incarnation of the Mach 1 and in Mustang enthusiast circles the 428 CJ is legendary for grabbing the Stock Eliminator title at the 1970 National Hot Rod Association Winternationals. This was the race of the year for high performance enthusiasts and the 428 CJ was the winner that season. In his book 'Fast Mustang', marque expert Alex Gabbard observed that 'The 428 Cobra Jet engine has been called the fastest running pure stock engine in the history of man!"
Standard on Mach 1s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature 'Shaker Hood' with an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to "shake" above the rumbling V-8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats. This particular example has the optional shaker hood scoop that attaches to the top of the engine air cleaner and protrudes up through a cutout in the hood. The scoop is functional, operating on engine vacuum - a vacuum valve inside the scoop opens the air inlet valve when the engine vacuum drops during acceleration; at idle and low speed operation the inlet valve remains closed but opens when the engine is shut off. The cold air introduced into the engine through this functional hood air scoop provides more efficient operation and a measurable increase in horsepower. The amount of increase depends on the temperature differential between the under hood temperature and the ambient air.
This particular example is a seriously striking rotisserie restored example which turns heads wherever she goes! The engine is extremely strong and responsive and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. The 'Acapulco Blue' paint and the 'White' interior is very striking and a real head turner.
This must be one of the finest highly optioned example's of a rotisserie restored matching #'s 1969 Ford Mustang 428/335HP 4V V8 Cobra Jet Ram Air Mach 1 Fastback with believed to be only some 28K original miles in rare turn-key and daily head-turning condition of an all time classic America muscle car icon! A perfect opportunity for any Mustang enthusiast or classic American muscle car collector to add a stunning example to their collection!
