No stories, no excuses, no nonsense with this impressive 1969 Mustang Mach 1. The details: matching-numbers 428 Cobra Jet. Factory A/C. Acapulco Blue. 100% ready to rock. According to the Marti Report that accompanies this car, it has been restored to stock specs and that''s a good thing when you''re talking about Mach 1s. With prices spiking up each year, now is the time to grab one, and this is only the latest in a long line of quality Mach 1s we''ve seen come and go through our showroom. Code 65 Acapulco Blue was quite popular back in 1969 and remains a favorite Mach 1 color today. With the restoration on this one being a few years old, you won''t be afraid to drive your investment, but it''s still quite presentable enough to hit the local cruise night where you''ll be proud to show off the straight bodywork and shiny blue paint. Authentic Mach 1 details include the blacked-out hood with scoop, front and rear spoilers, and rear window slats, not to mention the yellow graphics along the sides and surrounding the taillights. The chrome, stainless, and Mach 1-specific badges are all in good shape, too, The interior is correctly restored, too, featuring black Comfort-Weave buckets with red stripes, just as when it was new. It shows a few signs of use, but overall it''s quite impressive with no rips or tears, correct red floor mats, and a center console. Ford''s mission for the Mach 1 was to be both luxurious and sporty, so options like factory A/C (now converted to R134a refrigerant) and lots of woodgrained appliques give it a more mature look and feel. The gauges are probably original, but they look great in the deeply-set round pods that house each one, including the clock and a rather rare factory tachometer. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit is perhaps the only major deviation from stock equipment, but even it looks suitably vintage as to not look out of place. Fold-down rear seats make the Mach 1 sportsroof surprisingly practical, and the trunk is nicely finished with a correct mat and spare tire cover. For your Mach 1, if you wanted the ultimate in performance, you checked the box marked ''428 Cobra Jet." This is the car''s original, numbers-matching engine, and it''s grossly under-rated at 335 horsepower. It''s also surprisingly smooth and torquey, again befitting the Mach 1''s split personality. The engine bay is tidy but clearly shows signs of use, which is exactly how you''d expect a car that runs this well to look. It''s quite stock, from the air cleaner showing original decals to stock exhaust manifolds feeding a rumbling dual exhaust system. A C6 3-speed automatic is heavy-duty enough to handle the horsepower and feeds a 9-inch rear full of 3.00 gears, so this is a relaxed cruiser on the highway but all that torque means acceleration is available at any speed. Power disc brakes and power steering are critical to a big block Mustang like this, and the undercarriage shows signs of detailing even though the restoration is older. Handsome styled steel wheels are a nice change of pace, and wear 215/70/14 white-letter radials. Buy this car now or regret it later. Big block Mach 1s are the closest thing to a sure bet in the old car world, and this one is just right for driving while it appreciates. Call today!
