1969 FORD MUSTANG MACH 1 This is the first year the Mach 1 was available and is the most sought-after model year. It has the sexy lines of the older classic mustangs but the aggressive muscle car features. This car is a blast to drive and it draws a lot of attention. I have kept it in a heated garage covered and it only gets driven a few times a year to local car shows. This Mach 1 has the 351 Windsor motor with a 4 barrel carburetor and a 4 speed manual transmission. It would be rated between fair and good on Hagerty, closer to the good side.
