Mach, Yeah! 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Being Auctioned This Weekend

Introduced in 1968 it was the 1969 model year, like this one here, which would be the first to hit the streets and setoff the Mustang Mach 1 craze of the next decade.

Like my favorite chicken, this ’69 was once on the rotisserie having undergone a full restoration. However, while having a rebuilt engine it is not the original ’69 one, but rather a 1994 Ford Lightning 351 CI engine. Though a ’94, the engine is of the same 3.5-liter V8 Windsor family as the car’s original engine according to the door sticker.

Cosmetically the car remains in the factory Acapulco Blue with the factory white clarion-knit high back bucket seats interior. Additionally, it features the original radio converted to AM/FM stereo which seems an odd upgrade to make if done anytime in the last two decades or so versus leaving it stock. The car has also undergone an upgrade when it comes to the wheels now riding on 15-inch American Racing Wheels and features a blackout hood an drear spoiler.

Delivered to Lubbock, TX back in ’69 this ‘Stang has since made its way from the plains of Texas to the prairies of Kansas where it will be auctioned off this weekend at Mecum Kansas City.
