This 1969 Ford Mustang is a real-deal Mach 1 coupe with bright red paint, speedy details, and a powerful V8 that's ready to show off. So this is the growling classic sports car with a bold attitude you've been waiting for.
While the Mustang was the original pony car, these first-year Mach 1 specials have the fastback profile and beefy fenders to look like they went to stallion finishing school. That's especially true with this example. The Candy Apple Red is a nice upgrade with plenty of gloss to radiate in the sunshine. But you'll really love the red is because it does a great job of showing off this car's dark side. The blacked-out hood w/scoop, front air splitter, side/ rear stripes, and full-width spoiler really give this one attitude. There are also nice details, like the fog lights, hood pins, and bright chrome bumpers. But those who are truly detail-oriented will notice the wheels. They look like classic-style mags, but they are a little larger to carry more meaty tires. It's your first hint (but not your last) at some quality upgrades.
More of the sporty attitude continues inside. In fact, while the exterior is red with black accents, that's reversed inside. The high-back bucket seats have the correct Ford knit-style pattern and an awesome red streak going across the top. This coordinates nicely with the addition of red floor mats. There are plenty of nice classic-style features, like the fold-down rear seat, wood paneling, center console, and even the factory AM radio is still on display. But that cobra in the steering wheel's center reminds you that you'll love this one for more than just history.
The engine bay is ready to showcase right now. Its powerplant is looking good with fined polished valve covers with cool blue inserts, and even the long air topper matches, too. Plus, a tidy setup and blue plug wires give this a carefully crafted attitude. More than just look nice, this is Ford's hardy 351 cubic-inch V8 Windsor motor. It's been enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, and headers that add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust. Ford's three-speed transmission is an ideal paring that's stout enough for the power while also being an easy-cruising automatic. The same goes for features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and modern BF Goodrich gForce tires.
Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this Mach 1 is a rare treat in Candy Apple Red. So you know you want it in your garage. Call now!
