The 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is arguably the best year for the first-generation coupes. So it\'s awesome to see one of these sleek machines restored with upgrades like some cool Boss 302 style and a five-speed... all while keeping the right history with the great documentation and the original 351 V8. So as you look at the total package, you soon realize you\'re looking at one of those rare turn-key classics that has style AND substance.
Calypso Coral is arguably one of the best colors you could get on a Mustang in 1969. It\'s bright, vibrant, and distinct...and that\'s especially true with the shine you get from this one. The car was given a full restoration in 2011, and it has been with the same owner the whole time since then. It has an enduring quality seen in the good-looking panels, well-done gaps, and mirror-like bumpers that keep the fundamentals looking attractive. But the detail people will really be looking at is the upgraded aggression all dressed in black. This one goes for the meaner end of the pony car crowd as the Boss-inspired C-channel side stripes, blacked-out hood, deep chin spoiler, window slats, and full-width spoiler. Plus, the hood pins, hood scoop, and Mag 500 wheels are all there to give this added intimidation and style.
The forceful attitude continues with an all-black interior and aggressive red accents on the seat and floor mats. The seats look terrific, the dash pad is smooth, the trim is complete, and the headliner is excellent. It all makes for a very inviting atmosphere where you can really tell they paid attention during the restoration. There are even nice vintage details, like the working dome light and stock AM/FM radio. It\'s a great classic driver\'s setup with the rim blow steering wheel, round gauge package, and Hurst shifter (although you may want to take note of the shift pattern.)
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 351 cubic-inch V8. And you\'ll really love showing it off because they took extra time to make sure it looks stock. That means the bold Ford blue on the block, valve covers, and big air grabber. All the details are great with plenty of Autolite components (including a classic battery topper) and all the decals looking bright and correct. But this one also wants to make sure you love driving it. That\'s why it has been properly maintained, and there\'s even an upgraded Holley four-barrel carburetor for better all-around power. The motor fires up eagerly and runs smoothly. Plus, the upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission gives you better ratios to fully harness this V8 power. Add in the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide Cooper Cobra tires, and this makes for an all-around great classic driver.
The sale comes complete with desirable paperwork, like the factory buildsheet, owner\'s manual, and original warranty card. The stock wheels, FMX transmission, Autolite 4300 carb, and Mach 1 rocker moldings are also available in case you want to return the full Mach 1 treatment. This is a restored coupe with the right upgrades in attitude and driving fun, but it never loses the elements that make a classic Mustang so desirable. So don\'t miss this unique classic. Call now!
