Some folks might look at this spectacular 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Restomod and think it's nothing but a trailer queen, destined to be gawked at and drooled over as it travels to car shows around the country. They wouldn't be crazy to think so, just take a look at that vivid Red Metallic finish, the upgraded sporty interior, and that killer fastback profile. But when checking the specs, anyone will soon realize that it's not just a drop-dead gorgeous piece of Americana, it's got some serious .....
hardware to back-up those killer good looks: a thundering, Supercharged 383 Stroker V8, a modern Ford AOD transmission, and a restomod-spec performance suspension that keeps this beauty planted to the road. Real-deal Mach 1s are rare enough as it is, but finding one with this kind of impressive build is practically unheard of...

With Shelbys, Boss 302s, Boss 429s, and every other specialty Mustangs rapidly climbing deep into six-figure territory, it's natural for hobbyists to gravitate towards the next best thing: the Mach 1. Better yet, a Mach 1 Restomod like this 1969 model is even more sought-after in today's market. This slick Sportsroof was recently finished in miles deep Mopar Red Metallic paint (a modern take on the original color, Candy Apple Red), making it the kind of car that you almost can't resist touching. And yes, the finish work was completed to a high standard, to the point that you'd be forgiven for never wanting to take it out in the rain. With that being said, it was built to be driven, and despite being fresh, uniform, and incredibly slick, it's more of a top-end driver than a bonafide show-stopper, although a professional cut-and-buff that erases the minor scratches and swirls (acquired from car washes) just might propel it into that rarified air. Gaps are great, detailing is exceptional, and that paint, well, the photos almost don't do it justice. Adding to the aggressive look, there's a chin spoiler up front, billet grille with incorporated fog lights, a Shaker hood, sculpted side-scoops, black louvers over the rear window, and two honkin' exhaust pipes poking out from the rear bumper. 1969 is arguably the best year for attractive Mustangs, with beautiful lines and a slick, sexy profile that could make Marilyn Monroe blush, and with those crisp upper-body creases culminating into a sculpted rear end that doubles as a spoiler, this fastback looks as sharp as a shark-skin suit. There's just enough chrome and brightwork to add some sparkle to the dark palette, starting with that billet grille, the one-piece bumpers fore and aft, and the bright trim around all the glass.

The impressive work continues in the cabin, which sheds its original equipment in favor of ergonomic modern buckets and a matching rear bench. Custom door panels include red accents that pop, and a paint-matched roll bar/half-cage behind the front seats gives the interior a pro-touring vibe, with RaceQuip harnesses attached to it that strap you in place in anticipation of the revving monster under the hood. A factory center console is a must-have for any top-end car, and it houses a tall, chrome shifter topped with an 8-ball knob that looks like a manual, but actually manages the AOD transmission below. The wood-rimmed billet steering wheel works well with the simulated wood appliques on the dash and middle console " adding a touch sophistication to the cabin " and a full array of AutoMeter gauges ahead of the driver keep a close eye on the upgraded drivetrain. The only parts of the interior that weren't updated are the radio (which is missing) and HVAC bezel, along with the panel around the factory clock that shows some patina, but everything else, including the plush black carpets, dynamatted cabin, taut headliner, and the aftermarket speakers in the kick panels have all been attended to and are ready to rock. A quick peek in the trunk reveals Dynamat material that insulates the interior, and even with a relocated battery and those welded roll cage points there's still decent storage space.

Originally powered by an M-Code 351/300HP V8, this Mach 1 was never a stranger to going fast. But that factory power simply wasn't enough for the builders of this Mach 1, so they proceeded to take a 351 V8 small block, bore and stroke it to 383 cubes, add aluminum heads with hydraulic roller rockers and ARP head studs, and then strap on a thundering ProCharger, a giant CSU 4-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, a full MSD ignition, and a polished Extreme Velocity Air Intake System on top. The engine bay is neatly presented with aluminum valve covers, steel-braided hoses, Ford racing plug wires, and a Champion aluminum radiator that keeps the temperatures at bay. The supporting cast is pretty impressive, too, featuring a gorgeous set of long-tube headers that feed into an X-pipe dual exhaust system with throaty Spintech mufflers, a Ford AOD 4-speed transmission, custom aluminum driveshaft, and a Currie 9-inch stuffed with 3.55 posi-traction gears that can easily handle highway cruising. The chassis is well-detailed with red oxide pans and fresh suspension parts throughout, including a Total control front end with tubular A-arms, coilovers, and a big swaybar, along with Heidts rear set-up with coilovers and traction bars. There's also a Wilwood power 4-wheel disc brake at each corner with drilled and slotted rotors, and with rack-and-pinion steering handling is downright impressive. 17-inch chrome wheels provide the perfect flashy finish, wearing staggered 235/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance rubber.

Packed with loads of top-end performance goodies (and we have a binder full of records to prove it), this Mach 1 Restomod is a red-hot example of the Mustang at its best. Call today!
