With prices of documented collector cars locked in a seemingly endless climb, many enthusiasts are beginning to rethink the old purists adage of ‘original is always better’. And smart hobbyists who like actually driving their vintage hardware are beginning to buy slick, fully-sorted weekend cruisers like this 1969 Mustang Mach 1. After all, these classics were built to be seen and enjoyed on the open road, not garaged and dusted with an air compressor. And with a fire-breathing stoker motor that’s centered in a fully restored body and a virtual foundation of modern technology, this pro-touring pony will have you smiling and waving all day long! Looking for an awesome road warrior that’s as livable as it is lust worthy? With this awesome Mach 1, you won’t even give the word “original” a second thought!


Steal one glance at this Mach 1’s super slick fuselage and you’ll see what top notch craftsmanship truly looks like! A product of a high quality restoration, and a complete pro-touring build that was performed by a dedicated group of Mustang enthusiasts, its solid body was stripped to bare metal, thoroughly reworked and transformed from a tired old mare into a thoroughbred cruiser. Once that intense labor and tedious detailing resulted in good panel alignment, custom red base was accented with glossy war paint, sealed in a durable clear and buffed to a fantastic shine. The result is one mean looking pony car that looks good, runs great and has the macho bark to match its razor-sharp bite!

Ford designers made sure every year of the first generation Mustang had plenty of visual appeal. But, in our opinion, it doesn’t get much better than 1969’s masterful combination of aggressive accents and well-placed trim. At the front of this red hot coupe, a stainless trimmed grille hangs a prominent galloping horse emblem between traditional headlights, a thin bumper and a fierce chin spoiler. Behind that grille a stainless-pinned hood, which is complete with a functional Boss 429 scoop, visually balances glossy rear window louvers while well-maintained trim combines with bright chrome drip rails, familiar stainless wipers and body-matched racing mirrors to frame like-new glass. Below that hood, correct chrome door handles combine with fresh marker lamps, traditional stainless rocker spears and deep-set quarter scoops to add detail to the car’s sinister mug shot. And behind those handles, classy B-pillar emblems lead the eye to a concave valence that hangs a custom billet fuel filler and LED taillights between a glossy spoiler, a blocky “MUSTANG” script, a second chrome bumper and huge stainless exhaust tips.


After equipping the car with a killer body and big aspirations, this Mustang’s builders turned their attention to finding a suitable powerplant. And, since a reliable Ford Windsor V8 was completely rebuilt and thoroughly augmented, their philosophy must’ve been ‘why fix what ain’t broke’. Pull the pins on the “383 STROKER” branded hood and you’ll find a punched-out powerhouse that was massaged to roughly 475 horsepower and 441 lb./ft. of torque by none other than Mr. Dan Hackenberg. At the top of the big engine, a K&N X-Stream air cleaner feeds a 670 CFM Holley Street Avenger, which is married to aftermarket fuel lines, an underhood pressure gauge and a bright mechanical pump. At the base of that carb, a coated Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake rides between ported Dart Pro heads, a Competition camshaft and custom, powder-coated valve covers. At the base of those heads, tuned long-tube headers send spent gases spiraling in to a great sounding true dual exhaust system. In front of those headers, a Proform billet distributor sends fire from a Proform ignition system to loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. In front of that distributor, a polished March serpentine system spins a fresh alternator and fresh power steering pump beside a Classic Auto AC compressor. And in front of that drive, a polished Ron Davis radiator rides between a heavy duty power steering cooler and two giant electric puller fans. Aesthetically, the car’s clean powerplant sits in a completely sorted engine bay that’s been sprayed with traditional black paint and finished with stainless hose sleeves. And nice pieces like Painless wiring, a CSR catch can and a chrome Monte Carlo bar ensure fun-filled road trips and crowd-gathering show days.


What would a good restoration be without a great foundation? Take a look under this curve-carving Mach 1 and you’ll find rock-solid floors above a straight chassis that’s ready for years of carefree cruising. Behind the menacing 383, a heavy-duty C6 automatic turns a tried and true Ford posi-traction rear end that’s equipped with a stalwart Detroit Locker differential. At the ends of the car, a completely rebuilt suspension, equipped with modern power steering, maximizes both launch and handling characteristics. At the corners of the car, Baer stainless brakes make excellent use of bright red calipers, braided fluid lines, and drilled and slotted rotors. Step on the throttle and a fresh stainless fuel tank supplies gas to fresh stainless fuel lines while the aforementioned headers hurl exhaust in to custom, 3-inch pipes that breathe through a fat crossover, resonators and aggressive 30 Series Flowmasters. Power meets the pavement through an autographed set of Foose Nitrous Thrust wheels, which spin 255/40ZR18 Nitto Invos in front of 275/40ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s. And everything under this Ford, from its Powermaster starter and thick subframe connectors to its polished transmission pan and Caltracs-style traction bars, is fully-sorted and ready to hit the road!


Open the door to this awesome Mustang and you’ll find a fully restored cockpit which mixes the best elements of Ford’s Black vinyl interior with bright, body-matched accents. At the center of the car, custom-fit TMI sport buckets and a factory fold down bench prop pleated covers between 2-piece lap belts and bright chrome hardware. In front of those seats, a dual-cowl dash hangs bright wood applique around a full assortment of rebuilt gauges, chrome knobs for the car’s climate system and an MP3-compatible, Sirius satellite radio-equipped Sony Xplod CD player. Below that dash, a stylish console abchors a traditional chrome T-handle in front of more wood applique and a factory armrest. Below that console, fade-free carpet anchors bright red accents beneath “mach 1” stitched floor mats. At the sides of that carpet, stylish door panels front power windows and power door locks. In front of the driver, an impressive Jet steering wheel spins an authentic wood rim around a polished, tilting column. Behind the passengers, the car’s “mach 1” branded decklid lifts to reveal a custom trunk that’s complete with a JL Audio HD 600/4 amp. And everything in this Ford is secured by a key fob controlled Viper security system that includes Remote Keyless Entry and remote engine start.

There’s simply nothing like keying up a legendary muscle car. The sound, the feeling of the idle, and the relentless surge of torque as you power through the gears. It’s very rare to find a well-executed restoration which carries an asking price of roughly half its original build cost, but this Mustang is exactly that. And if you’re looking for a highly desirable classic that will provide years of weekend fun, and rack up more than its fair share of fans in the process, this is your kind of car!
