For Sale: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

The Ultimate 1969 Mach 1 ""R"" Code - Coyote Powered! This Beauty combines the classic design of the 60's era muscle with the performance, convenience, and reliability of a late model drivetrain. The project began with this nice 1969 Mach 1 ""R"" code, originally equipped with a 428cid engine and 4 speed manual transmission, that's right, a real deal ""R"" code Mach 1, complete with Marti Report. This one was destined to be different, to be driven, not to be stored away hidden from the world. Using this ultra clean Mach 1 as the canvas, countless hours were spent on the design and research to obtain the perfect mixture of performance, handling, and appearance in a 1969 Mach 1. Schwartz Performance was chosen for their new G Machine Tube Chassis because of the superb engineering they put into all of their chassis and components. This particular version was selected for the easy transplant of the Ford Performance Gen 3 Coyote crate engine. With the goal in mind to build the best handling Mach 1 possible, Ride Tech adjustable coil over shocks were used on all 4 corners along with fully adjustable tubular control arms front and rear. The G- Machine chassis incorporates heavy duty, fully adjustable, front and rear sway bars as well. This feature allows simple changes to the overall handling of the car by adjusting ""link"" settings on the bars to keep it mild for the street and stiff when the time comes for track duty! Wheels are custom 3-piece 18x10 in the rear and 18x8 up front - the wheel centers are custom painted to match the body color. COR Racing Wheels ""Cipher"" was the style selected for their strength, style, and light weight. Michelin pilot sport tires provide the ultimate grip in the corners as well as any other aggressive driving! The rear tires are a 275/40/18, with a 245/40/18 up front! Wilwood brakes handle the stopping power with 6 piston calipers up front and 4 piston calipers in the rear - all using drilled and slotted rotors.
As a part of the initial build design, a Coyote crate engine was always planned to be put between the frame rails. It was ordered and installed complete with a new wiring harness and preprogrammed ECU. Rated at 435 fuel injected horsepower, the fun factor is unmatched. Staying with the Mach 1 theme, a custom built, functional Shaker style hood scoop was installed to continue the factory look, as if the 428 big block was still under the hood.
The Coyote engine is equipped with necessary upgrades including: Vintage Air front accessory drive system and AC for those hot and humid days, an oil filter relocation system using black stainless braided hose with matching black aluminum AN fittings, an aluminum radiator with electric fans to keep it cool on the hottest of days. Exhaust is sent through factory style tubular headers connected to a custom fabricated 304 stainless steel exhaust system exiting out the rear.
The Coyote power is sent to the rear through a 6-speed Tremec T-56 Magnum transmission using modern style hydraulics for easy shifts with a light pedal. The 6 speed is mated to a steel SFI approved bellhousing for protection in case of clutch failure. Connecting the transmission to the rear is a custom built aluminum driveshaft with 1350 u-joints for added strength. Bringing up the rear is the very strong and efficient Ford 9"" style rear end from Moser Engineering. The center section is a modular case spinning 3.70 gears with 31 spline axles with a Detroit Locker Tru-Trac differential. Code ""C5"" was the color of choice when it was time to make this Mach 1 shine. Bodywork required was minimal, then came the rigorous blocking and sanding to make the panels flat so the body and paint is smooth. Bumpers, bright work, and trim, are all in great condition in all installed like factory original for the period correct accent to the perfect factory color - Black Jade.
