1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1I bought this car in late 2019 as a low mileage â€œBarn Findâ€. I was planning to do a full restoration, but 2020 was a rough year financially, so Iâ€™m offering it in this auction.
This car was built on March 4, 1969, and is an original candy apple red, 4-speed, shaker hood, R-code 428 Cobra Jet car. It has many original factory parts including, sheet metal, toploader transmission, glass, rear shocks & springs, etc. Original factory paint daubs can be seen on leaf springs & the drive shaft. The block and heads are not original; there is no VIN on the block which is date coded for May 1969, and the heads are date coded for June 1969. The original intake is date coded at February 4, 1969. It currently has a Hurst shifter. The interior is in very good condition. The front seats do not have the Mach 1 red stripe insert, but date codes on the seat tags are correct to the build date of the car. There is no corrosion at the inner fender-shock tower interface as seen on many vintage Mustangs. While the Marti report does not indicate that the car came from the factory with a tach dash and Traction-Lok rear-end, it has both; the date code on the tach dash circuit board is correct at January 29, 1969. VINs are present on both front inner fender aprons, window tag, door tag, and toploader transmission. The rear window louvres are Ford period correct as they have the numbered louvres.
The car ran good when I bought it (see YouTube video below), but the brakes were almost non-existent, so I parked it, and began disassembly in preparation to send it off to be restored. Disassembly included removing the engine, transmission, drive shaft, fuel tank, fuel & brake lines, exhaust, brake booster, master cylinder, dash, carpet, heater, and other misc items (see pics). The fuel tank, exhaust, and carpet have been thrown away. The frame rails are solid (see pics), and most of the sheet metal is good condition, but some repairs will be required. Issues that need to be addressed include 1) crack on dash pad, 2) rust on hood, battery inner fender apron, cowl, doors, front floor pans, trunk drip rails, and 3) fiberglass repair on lower/underside of right rear quarter panel.
