The Ford Mustang was successfully introduced in April 1964 as a sporty pony car to attract younger buyers into Ford products. After a few years of development, Ford saw the need to create performance Mustangs to compete with GM and their release of the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird.
As the performance war continued, the Mustang's platform and engine bay were progressively redesigned to accommodate larger engine blocks. Late in the 1968 model year, Ford introduced the 428 cu in (7.0 L) Cobra Jet FE engine in a small group of Mustang GTs and into the 1968 Shelby GT500KR. This was a strong performer and indicated the direction of the 1969 Mustang. However, "GT" wasn't a name that would initiate images of street screeching performance; hence the introduction of the Mach 1 title.
Standard equipment was a 351 cu in (5.8 L) Windsor (351W) 2V motor with a 3 speed manual transmission, and a 9-inch (23 cm) 28 spline open rear axle. A 351W 4V was optional as was a 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE, and the huge 428 cu in (7.0 L) Cobra Jet 4V with or without Ram Air, and even the introduction of the "drag pack" option with the modified 428 cu in (7.0 L) Super Cobra Jet engine. A 4-speed manual or 3-speed FMX (small block)/C6 (big block) automatic transmission was optional.
Our example is a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1, with the rare 428 Super Cobra Jet engine. This engine option required a wider rear axle and an external oil cooler.

Our car was imported to Sweden as early as 1973 and has since then been cared for tenderly.
This example is equipped with a Automatic gearbox and the coveted "Drag-Pack".
The car is painted in the color "Silver Jade" and has never undergone any major repainting or rust repair. The same applies to the car's "stripes", chrome details and interior. The car is verified via the included "Marti Report". Contact us for more information.
This Mach 1 was manufactured 1969-03-06.
