Ford Mustang Mach 1 429 Sportsroof
The year 1969 saw “Boss” Mustang models offered in 302- and 429-cubic inch configurations, as well as the new Mach 1 fastback coupe. Available only with the sportsroof, as the fastback style had been renamed, it could be had with V-8s from 351- to 428-cubic inches, and, after the Boss 429 was dropped for 1971, two 429s, the Cobra Jet and Super Cobra Jet. An early version appeared in the James Bond film Diamonds are Forever.
375 bhp, 429 cu. in. OHV V-8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and disc-front and drum-rear power hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 109 in.
