428ci Super Cobra Jet
The 428ci Super Cobra Jet was first introduced during the 1969 model year. Mustang buyers who selected either of the optional 3.91:1 or 4.30:1 rear end gear ratios got more than just an optional axle ratio! Ordering either of these axle ratio options triggered a few other upgrades, including the 428 Super Cobra Jet engine, an external oil cooler mounted in front of the radiator, and relocation of the driver's side horn to the passenger side of the radiator core support to make room for the oil cooler. This Traction-Lok option ran $155.45 on the option sheet, but you also got the rest of the engine hardware with it. Quite the bargain, all things considered! It was not until February 20th, 1969, this complete package could be ordered as the "Drag Pack" option, costing $288.54.
Viva Las Vegas Autos Presents...
A numbers matching, all original, 2 owner 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Super Cobra Jet. The Mach 1 is an all-time favorite among classic auto enthusiasts. True to it's name, the Mach 1 stood for speed and performance, ranking among the top tier of the brand's legendary performance offerings. This incredible Mustang possesses the most powerful and rare options, including the Traction-Lok option, known as "The Drag Pack" option after February 20th, 1969, making it 1 of only 3,181 models ever built.
Viva Las Vegas Autos Known History...
1969 was the benchmark year for the Ford Mustang in its proliferation of performance names and engines. The Mach 1 was only available in the "Sports Roof" body style with numerous visual and performance enhancements. These enhancements included the matte black hood treatment with hood pins, shaker scoop, competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels, chrome exhaust tips, a deluxe knitted vinyl interior, and dealer optional spoiler, chin splitter, and rear window louvers.
This Mach 1 came with only the finest options produced, making it one of the rarest and most sought after Mustangs today. This includes the legendary Traction-Lok option, 428ci Super Cobra jet Engine. This came with multiple internal differences from the standard 428 Cobra Jet. This includes a unique harmonic balancer, a revised flywheel, cast aluminum pistons, and beefier cap-screw connecting rods. These innards were designed to fortify the Super Cobra Jet so that it would better withstand the rapid acceleration and high rpm use that the aggressive rear axle gearing- at 3.91 rear-end ratios, signified by the "V" on the door tag, would enable. When you purchased the Traction-Lok option, it came with an external engine oil cooler mounted ahead of the radiator support on the driver's side, moving the horn to the passenger side. It was also never available with factory air conditioning due to the location of the oil cooler. This Mach 1, however, comes equiped with a Vintage AC system, installed by a professional Ford dealer. Ford's Traction-Lok option, later known as the "Drag Pack" option, was a rarity, having only ever built 3,181 units.
428 equipped cars received shock tower braces. Mach 1's with a 428 received the "Competition HD" package which included refined front spindles to handle both the heavier-duty wheels/tires and the stresses the driver was sure to put them through, Gabriel Heavy-Duty shocks, shock tower bracing, and a large front anti-roll bar. In the rear, Gabriel shocks were staggered on four-speed models to counter wheel hop under hard acceleration. The Mach 1 also received quicker-than-standard 16:1 Steering.A Word from the Owner...
"I bought this car 21 years ago from the original owner, totally unrestored. over the course of the last 19 years, I had done minimal restoration on the car as it only needed minor things to be perfect to me. 19 years ago, I had the car repainted in its original color. I had replaced the dash as it was in need of repair. The carpets were showing wear from age, so I had those replaced as well. The seats have remained in tact from original. About 6 years ago, a good friend of mine, Leonard Vascholtz, rebuilt the engine for me. Leonard is a record holding Ford racecar driver at Pike's Peak Hillclimb, so I figured 'Who better than him?' It has been kept in a climate controled garage, and with my schedule the way it is right now, I've put less than 2,000 miles on it since the engine rebuild."
Viva Las Vegas Autos Preparations...
Whenever we acquire a collectible classic car like this, our first steps of getting it ready for market are a thorough visual, mechanical, and functional inspection. This car has regularly been maintained throughout its life and drives flawlessly. The paint is in almost pristine condition and shows little to no blemishes. The interior is in incredible condition! Looking almost new, it shows the delicate care that has been taken of this car. The wood finish on the dash, door panels, and center console show no signs of sun damage or wear. Getting in to this Mach 1 truly throws you back to a vintage muscle dream and takes your breath away with every start up.
When a vehicle arrives at our shop, the first thing we do is put the car on a lift and do an undercarriage powerwash. This frees the vehicle of any dirt and grime underneath, and helps reveal any issues mechanically that need to be addressed. The underside of this Mach 1 shows that it has been kept as original as possible, with the exception of the vintage AC system. We decided not to touch up any of the paint, even on the oil pan, just to show the prior condition of the vehicle without intervention. As you can see photographed here, the underside of this car looks as though it recently came from the factory. The "R5D Cobra Jet" markings inside the passenger side wheel-well have been preserved for authenticity.

Viva Las Vegas Autos Note from the Owner...
I am a "used car dealer" but before that, I'm an automobile enthusiast. I love original, rare and high quality modified vintage and modern cars. Over the past 15 years I've been in business, I have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles as well. I specialize in and I am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners.
I have an experienced eye for quality and I've discovered that my preferred buyers can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the buyer, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won't do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.
With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a "dealership" like mine may be at a first glance. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner. First we do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and hope nothing escapes our methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly "right" will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about Viva Las Vegas Autos. Moreover, it allows us to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless we think it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction so you don't get a headache over the vehicle.
After the vehicle is fully checked over and made whole at any level it needs to be, we researches its history, documents, documenting originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications, and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 200 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I've developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they meticulously clean. Reconditioning can sometimes take several days as we do all that we can within reason to get our vehicles in tip top condition visually and cosmetically. We do Way more than just a cheap detail. Our details are more like refurbishing to as close to new as we can possibly get our vehicles.
Usually, I'll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it's a fast car, we film it going fast. If it's a 4x4 you'll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch gauges operation as well.
No "dealer, "? on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase that my vehicle is for real and what I say is an honest assessment. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.
If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer is serious, you'll find me the most accommodating business partner you've ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or "what is my bottom line" I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually make an offer, I will happily quote you a liberal suggested retail price - a number we both know will not buy the car so, don't waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a "used car dealer.â€â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹
