The Ford Mustang was successfully introduced in April 1964 as the 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 some of their more sporty rivals.
Introduced in August 1968 as a package for the 1969 model year, the Ford Mustang Mach 1 was the performance-oriented option package designed to do just that, and it did so brilliantly. The Mach 1 title adorned performance-oriented Mustang offerings until the original retirement of the moniker in 1978. However, due to its widespread success Ford re-introduced the Mach program in 2003 as a high performance version of the SN95 platform and due to the fantastic design characteristics of the 69’ model, many of its traits were carried over and integrated into the new design.
Fitted with a rare assortment of extras, this 1969 example of the highly sought after 428 Super Cobra Jet, is one of only 5 built and is provided with the Drag Pak 3.91 Traction-Lock rear end option. The 428 Super Cobra Jet and the Boss 429 or 302 are the rarest of the early Mustangs. This example has been dual-stage resprayed to a very high standard and is finished in the factory Black Jade Metallic, the finish is superb.
