For Sale: 1969 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Some folks might look at this spectacular 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Restomod and think it was nothing but a trailer queen to be gawked as it travels in between car shows. But checking the specs, you'll realize that not only is it beautiful, it's been built for combat thanks to a thundering 408 Stroker V8 under the hood, a Tremec 5-speed managing the gears, and a performance suspension with adjustable coilovers and power 4-wheel disc brakes that will easily humiliate almost everyone out on the street. Recently restored to an exceptionally high-level, this Screaming Yellow Mach 1 is an absolute STUNNER.

With Shelbys, Boss 302s, Boss 429s, and every other specialty Mustang rapidly climbing deep into six-figure territory, it's natural for hobbyists to gravitate towards the next best thing: the Mustang Mach 1. Better still, it's been given a full restomod treatment to prepare it for the rigors of everyday driving, which means it will always be more popular with the masses than the stuffy-shirt, pedigreed survivors that can barely be driven. This stunning Sportsroof is finished in miles deep, eye-scorching Screaming Yellow paint, making it the kind of car that you almost can't resist touching. This slick shade comes from the 2006 Mustang color chart, with layers of basecoat/clearcoat finish covering the laser-straight body, which was then color-sanded into a glossy presentation that makes it stand out in a crowd like gold among chicken feed. Finish work was done to show standards and you'd be forgiven for thinking this was nothing short of a trailer queen, because other than two microscopic chips on a bumper corner, we haven't found many flaws. Gaps are excellent, detailing is exceptional, and that paint, well, the photos just don't do it justice. For the proper look, there's a functional Boss 429 Shaker hood up front, side scoops at the flanks, and a set of rear window louvers in the back, and a Mach 1 decal set was expertly laid down on top of the finish and adds great contrast. 1969 is arguably the best year for Mustangs, with beautiful lines and a slick, sexy profile that could make Marilyn Monroe jealous, and with a chin spoiler up front and decklid spoiler in the rear, all that gorgeous style has neat bookends. There's just enough chrome and brightwork to add some sparkle, starting with the one-piece bumpers fore and aft, and the bright trim around all the tinted glass looks great too.

The impressive work continues inside, where a brand-new TMI interior features Mach 1 high-back buckets wrapped in elegant white vinyl hides, a restored center console, and all-new Mach 1-spec door panels at the flanks. Before the new guts went in, Dynamat Premium sound-deadening insulation was laid down atop all the metal, and with thick black carpets, a new dash, and taut headliner, everything fits together extremely well and seals the cabin up from the outside world. An aluminum Lecarra steering wheel with a sporty woodgrain rim was mounted atop a tilt column to anchor the cockpit, and it's the perfect dance partner to the 8-ball topped Hurst shifter jutting out from the console - practically taunting the driver to go out and rip up the streets. The simulated wood appliques on the dash, door panels, and middle console add a touch sophistication to the largely unblemished cabin, and for safety Juliano's custom 3-point seatbelts were added to the front buckets, and rarely seen shoulder-belts were custom installed in the rear. The original gauges were swapped in favor of bright, white-faced AutoMeter units that more accurately monitor the upgraded engine, and a Kenwood head unit pumps tunes through upgraded speakers stashed throughout the cabin. Options include power windows, cruise control, and cold air via a Classic Air Perfect Fit A/C system cleverly installed to resemble a factory unit. All the soft parts have been barely broken in and look incredibly fresh, and even the trunk is lined with insulation and black carpet that look like they just came out of the wrapper.

Originally powered by a 351-4V, there's now a race-built 408 Stroker V8 under the hood, professional engineered by Geddes Automotive Machine. What reportedly started as the original '69 351 block was bored, stroked, balanced and blueprinted into the powerful 10.5:1 compression beast it is today, and augmented with high-end performance parts including RHS aluminum heads, an Eagle rotating assembly with Keith Black pistons, a Comp roller cam, EPW roller rocker arms, and a Cloyes double-roller timing set just to name a select few (call us, there's so much more to cover). The engine bay is show car sanitary with Ford Racing valve covers, a March serpentine system, and plenty of billet pieces that pop out from the yellow engine bay. A gorgeous set of long-tube headers feeds into a custom stainless steel exhaust system, a giant aluminum radiator keeps temperatures in check, while the built a Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual with a McLeod 3-piece clutch spins a 9-inch Trac-Lok rear end with 31 spline axles and 3.89 gears that can both jump off the line and handle highway cruising with ease. The chassis is insanely detailed in satin black, and the performance suspension includes a Rod & Custom tubular Mustang II set-up in the front, a Heidts 4-link in the rear, subframe connectors, adjustable coilovers fore and aft, and SSBC power 4-wheel discs with slotted rotors all around. Like the rest of the car, everything is new, including bushings, shocks, lines, hoses, and fasteners, and even the 17-inch American Racing wheels are fresh, wearing staggered 225/55/17 front and 235/55/17 rear performance rubber.

This is one of those muscle cars with a lengthy list of equipment, so give us a call and we'll tell you all about it. With only 1416 miles since the build and looks that kill, this is an extremely impressive Mach 1 that won't last long. Call today!
