The Ford Mustang 351 Mach 1 was a true American legend. From it's inception in 1964 the Mustang took took the automotive world by storm. In the first year of production Ford sold more than 600,000 Mustangs. As customers wanted to personalize their Mustang, derivatives were rapidly introduced. There were numerous body styles, from coupe, fastback and convertible, together with a host of power-train and styling packages.
The original Mach 1 was introduced in 1968 as a concept car with a hatched fastback, aggressive bonnet, side scoops and a unique paint scheme. In 1969, the Mach 1 was one of three new Mustang models that made it into production. It featured the familiar fastback body with simulated side scoops high on the rear wing, an aggressively raked air dam on the front and a spoiler on the rear, “comfort-weave” leather seats and the now famous, “shaker hood scoop” mounted directly onto the carburetor and fitting through an opening in the bonnet. The version above was powered by a 250-horsepower 351 "Windsor" V-8 engine.
