Acapulco Blue w/White interior, 390/320hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
1969 was the milestone year for Ford Mustang in its proliferation of performance names and engines. No fewer than six factory performance Mustang models were available. They included the GT, Boss 302, Boss 429, Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500 and the Mach 1. Additionally, seven variations of V-8s were available in the ’69–’73 models; most of these also available in the new Mach 1.
Due to the Mach 1’s success, the GT model was discontinued after 1969 following poor sales of 5,396 units versus the 72,458 sales for the Mach 1. The Mustang would not wear the “GT” badge again until 1982.
The Mach 1 package was only available in the ‘SportsRoof’ body style (previously known as the ‘Fastback‘); never on the hardtop or convertible. Many resto-mod visual conversions have since been performed by owners and enthusiasts, but are not Mach 1’s by VIN code.
The Mach 1 started with a V8-powered ‘Sportsroof’ body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing items such as matte black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires, chrome exhaust tips (except 351W 2V), deluxe interior, livery and dealer optional chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, and rear window louvers (SportSlats).
This awesome Mach 1 was built at the San Jose, CA. plant and sold new at Rebsamen Motor Company in Little Rock, AR. It’s been beautifully restored and features:
Factory air conditioning, Traction-Lock Posi rear end, Power brakes with front discs, Power steering, Rear window louvers, Front and rear spoilers, Rim-Blow horn, AM/FM radio and chrome Magnum 500 wheels. Documented with the Marti Report.
