Ford Mustang Mach 1
A “steed for every need” philosophy yielded 11 different powertrain combinations in 1969. New models added to the lineup included hot rods like the 290 horsepower Boss 302, the 375 horsepower Boss 429 and the Mach 1, giving the Mustang its muscle car heritage. The Grande luxury model also was introduced.
In 1970, a ram air “Shaker” hood scoop could be ordered on any Mustang equipped with a 351-cid or larger V-8.
This car was auctioned off by Mecum Auctions on May 19, 2012 at Dana Mecum's 25th Original Spring Classic Auction, Indianapolis and was part of the RM Auctions event for Charlie Thomas in October, 2012.
