This 1969 Mach 1 is a complete ground up restoration that took over 6 years from start to finish (2003 to 2009). It is outfitted with a combination of NOS pieces, after-market high end modification parts and a modern drivetrain from front to back. The 33,371 miles shown on the odometer are all since the restoration and the bulk of the mileage is from trips to cars shows and events throughout the western US and western Canada. The car has always been driven, never trailered since 2009. The bodywork and paint were all done by a professional body shop and the modifications were completed in a professional auto shop by the shop owner (a former NASCAR crew chief) and the car’s owner (that would be me). The paint is a custom blend with a Rose Pearl Metallic base and Sunset Kandy topcoat and is as smooth, glossy and reflective today as it was when finished. The cars one of a kind color draws people in from across the show field. The Mach 1 call outs and striping are all hand painted and buried in the clearcoat. There are a few rock chips visible and some have been corrected or covered with bugs or artwork by the same artist that did the detail work. The hood scoop has "Real Fire" flames on it, again by the same artist and it is one of the things most commented on at shows. There are a couple of indentations on the lower section of the passenger door from when the installers of the door glass clamped too hard with their knees. Most people will never see them if not pointed out.
Some of the mechanical modifications include the 450HP/420 FP Roush crate motor with the full polished package and Billet Specialties Tru-Track Serpentine system. It has a custom-made aluminum driveline, a ReenMachines re-engineered IRS out of a 2004 Cobra Mustang with added 3.90 gears, Koni shocks, springs and Kenny Brown IRS bushings. The Lentec "Street Terminator" AOD transmission has been modified and beefed up with billet input and output shafts, added Kevlar clutch plates, electric overdrive switch, a 9-inch 3200 stall speed torque convertor and more. It is manual shift capable. Up front it has a Revelation Racing Systems (RRS) Phase III IFS with 13-inch rotors, Total Control suspension components, a RRS power steering rack, a stainless steel Flaming River tilt steering column with a limited edition Grant wood steering wheel. There are disc brakes on all 4 corners with Wilwood 6 piston Dynapro calipers up front and Wilwood Mustang calipers in the rear. A custom dual exhaust system features Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers, JBA silver ceramic coated mid-length headers, a stainless-steel X-pipe and polished Borla tips. The TSW "Jarma" wheels are 18X8 inch in the front and 18X9.5 in the rear and have BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2 tires (235/40 ZR18 front and 255/45 ZR18 in the rear). The front seats are out of a 2003 Mach 1 and along with the rear seats are covered in a high-grade vinyl to simulate the "Comfort-Weave" Mustang seats from 1969. The driver’s seat is 8-way power controlled. The front seats are lowered and set back for more head and leg room. It has retractable 3-point seat belts. It has a Classic Auto-Air AC system that is out of sight behind the dash and blows cold air all day long. The electric windows were just outfitted with “Nu-Relic” regulators and motors. It has power door locks and a Viper security system. A Detroit Speed 7 position intermittent wiper system with a modern motor was just installed as well. The car has a powerful Kenwood sound system with a 900 watt 5 channel amplifier and a JBL 1000 watt subwoofer in the trunk. It features Bluetooth, a remote, hands free phone use, HD radio and is iPod ready. The speaker system is all by MB Quart. The trunk is finished with custom carpeted panels and the Optima yellow top spiral cell gel battery is mounted in the trunk as well, in a custom battery holder with a Flaming River battery shut off switch. A list of over 75 modifications is available to interested buyers. A recent market appraisal puts the cars value at $104,500.00
The car has won over 95 awards, including 16 Best In Show, 24 first place or Best In Class and many for Best Paint, Best Motor, Best Modified and it won a Good Guys award both times it was in a Good Guys show. The car has been featured on dash plaques, t-shirts and trophies. Most of the trophies can go with the car. This is a show car that was built to drive and it has never been beat on. I've never even taken it down the strip. This is a car you can jump in and take off on a 2-week trip without worry. It will get you there and back and you will be grinning ear to ear the whole time. At every gas stop people ask if they can take a picture of it. Speaking of gas, when you travel in overdrive, at 65-70 mph, you will get 17-18 mpg consistently, with a best of 19 mpg. Around town you will see 14 to 15 mpg if you keep your foot out of it.
