This Mach 1 is packing the 351ci Cleveland V8 engine with a 4bbl carb - bolted up to it is an FMX automatic transmission, so you get flawless gear changes each time. A competition suspension from the factory includes heavy-duty springs for the front and rear, plus revalved shock absorbers. Power brakes and power steering make the car tame enough to handle on the street, yet it packs enough performance for track days. On top of that, the engine compartment is wonderfully clean, which is always a good sign and makes you more willing to pop the hood at shows.

Exterior presentation for this Ford Mustang Mach 1 is strong. The Grabber Green paint job is correct, as is the factory-optional two-tone Grabber Green and black hood. The hood pins are chromed and in presentable condition. All the OE graphics and badges are undamaged. The rear spoiler and rear window louvers are in good repair, with a nice unblemished finish on them. Even the chin spoiler up front isn’t damaged, something which all too often is ripped off or chewed up on these cars.

On the inside is a back knitted vinyl upholstery, which is very unassuming yet comfortable. Factory-original gauges, controls, shifter, and steering wheel. The carpeting and headliner are in good condition, and belts for all 4 seats are included. Fake wood veneers for the door panels and dash show minor blemishes at the edges.

Ford made the first generation of the Mustang Mach 1 from 1969 to 1973. Available only with a V8 engine and as a fastback, called the SportsRoof, it was distinct versus the rest of the Mustang lineup. The performance-oriented configuration of the car made it a legend among enthusiasts, which in turn has boosted the collectability. For the 1971 model year, the car’s dimensions grew, providing more interior space, following complaints the backseat area was too cramped. You can get this Ford Mustang Mach 1 through Ideal Classic Cars LLC.
