1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 – fantastic blend of the original 1969 look with significant upgrades. The car underwent a complete rotisserie restoration in 2005-2007 with every bolt and part replaced/upgraded. There have also been other upgrades over the last few years. The body is nearly flawless, and there is not a wave in the deep rich black paint/body panels - all the window glass was replaced during the restoration. Traction is provided by Shelby style wheels matched with new Continental Extreme Contact tires (245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear). The black tint, aluminum front grill, and front spoiler provide a very aggressive finish to the overall style/look.
The car has the original shaker hood, and a Ford factory rebuilt 351 Windsor with 9.8:1 compression, cast crank, forged rods and pistons, and a flat tappet Comp Cam with roller rockers. The motor has aluminum Edelbrock RPM heads that have been ported and polished to match the Edelbrock RPM intake. Spark is provided by a MSD ignition and Billet Distributor, with a Holley 670 DP Street Avenger Carb feeding it fuel. New Elite Heavy-Duty Thermal Coated headers, Magna-Flow exhaust, new gas tank and new aluminum radiator bring everything together.
The drive train has been upgraded to include a Tremec TKX 5-speed transmission with a 11” clutch and aluminum bell housing, combined with a Ford 9” rear end that houses the 28 Spline Traction Lock Posi with 3.70:1 gear (new TKX 5-speed, clutch, pressure plate, and rear-end gears & bearings in 2019). The car was also upgraded with four-wheel disc brakes, including a Willwood system in the front. New leaf springs, coil springs, shock absorbers and all new bushings in the suspension. Steering is provided by a power rack and pinion system from Randalls Rack.
The interior has new carpet, headliner, door panels, dash pad and has undergone recent sound proofing/deadening with Dynamat installed inside the doors, floors, and trunk (added in 2019). The stereo system is a Kenwood deck and 100w amp with six speakers (doors, rear side panel and rear deck). The front and rear seats have new upholstery, and the dash was fitted with a new Sport Comp gauge cluster from JME - matched with a Flaming River Tilt Steering Column and 3-spoke Sebring Style wood steering wheel.
The car was in a museum collection prior to my purchasing ~3years ago, and currently shows 3,400 miles on the odometer (replaced as mentioned above during the restoration). It could easily be put back in a museum, personal collection or enjoyed as an incredible driver that attracts attention at every stop-light!
