About 1969 Mustang Mach 1
Supersonic jets move at Mach 1 speed, and although the 1969 Mustang Mach 1 does not quite go that fast, Ford certainly cannot be blamed for the optimistic moniker. Mach 1 Mustangs debuted in 1969 with a high-performance package boosting their power. When it comes to 1969 models, buyers get to choose between the traditional Windsor V8 engine at 351 cu. in., or the enormous 428 cu. in. Cobra Jet engine. The stock suspension and transmission also receive upgrades to handle the extra engine power. The 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 also sports the iconic fastback body style, a two-door coupe with a long, sloping rear window that almost looks like a hatchback. In fact, many 1969 Mustang Mach 1 listings on eBay use the fastback style, a look that is synonymous with other muscle cars of the 1960s, and it gives the Mach 1 its edgy appearance. With a classic name for a legendary car, Mach 1 Mustangs remain highly popular and collectible.
