1972 Ford Mustang Fastback
The Ford Mustang is an American car manufactured by Ford. The 1965 Mustang was the automaker's most successful launch since the Model A. The Mustang has undergone several transformations to its current sixth generation.
The Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a performance-oriented option package of the Ford Mustang, originally introduced by Ford in August 1968 as a package for the 1969 model year. The Mach 1 title adorned performance oriented Mustang offerings until the original retirement of the moniker in 1978.
Why This Car Is Special
It is not often that you can find a high end restoration on a 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with the 351-4V engine, Ram Air Package, and a Marti Report all wrapped in a gorgeous Red on Red paint and interior scheme. We have one here at Skyway Classics.
One of the most recognizable features of the '71-'73 Mustangs is the optional NACA (NASA) hood design with dual scoops. Though available as a visual, non-functional item, they could be made fully functional on models ordered with the Ram Air option, which included vacuum controlled 'flaps' inside each scoop, and a fiberglass under-hood 'plenum' that directed cool, outside air through a modified, rubber-ringed air filter housing and into the carburetor. The ram-air option included a two-tone hood paint treatment in 'matte black' coordinated to the base color of the Mach 1 and its decals and striping.
The 351-4V engine puts out over 250 horses under the new SAE net horsepower rating system, which was still a healthy number by the standards of the day, and looks factory correct with its blue painted valve covers and air cleaner sitting in the good looking, detailed engine compartment.
It came from the factory with power steering and front disc brakes, correct chrome wheels with B.F. Goodrich white letter radial T/A tires.
Our 72 has a mint perfect new Red Mach 1 sports bucket seat interior and console with new door panels, new carpet, headliner, console with floor mounted shifter, power windows, electric clock, AM-FM Radio, padded sun visors, factory tach, and the rare Fold down rear seat option.
Needless to say when you see this Mach 1, the whole car needs nothing and looks like it just came out of the showroom.
In 1972 saw deletion of the pop-open gas cap, which was replaced with the standard twist-on cap found on the other Mustang models that year. Our Mustang has an immaculate repaint in correct Bright Red paint with new correct Black Mach 1 decals, new chrome and stainless, correct factory Rear Deck Spoiler, Tinted Glass, and a detailed engine & trunk compartment.
This 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 we have here at Skyway Classics is an attention getting, top of the line example of a Mustang as you can get. Red on red with a 351 and the Ram Air Hood and stripes is about as mean a look in a muscle car as you can get. Come get it today.
