1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Classics  /   /  By Chad Tyson

When it comes to 1969 Mustangs, there’s a little secret the Boss 429 owners don’t want you to know: The Q-code 428 CJ — in stock form — was faster in the quarter mile. They can have their rarity and six-figure entrance fee. I’ll take the quicker E.T.

This Candy Apple Red Mach 1 428 CJ underwent a nut and bolt rotisserie restoration less than 1,000 miles ago, according to the seller. A few concessions were made from the stock layout, with factory a/c added, modern electronic ignition and an interior color change from black to the current pearl white. Inside, outside and underneath are remarkably clean, as expected from a recent restoration.

“We are researching the engine block number for confirmation if the car is matching numbers or not. Engine was just rebuilt to factory specs.” If numbers matching is a make-or-break proposition for you, make sure this gets sorted before placing your bid.

In the last year, 28 1969 Mach 1 428 Cobra Jets sold on eBay Motors. Good to excellent examples averaged from $45k to nearly $72k.

    My first ordered new car was a red 1969 428 Super Cobra Jet Mach 1 with a Drag Pack. I was 24 years old and working for Boeings in Seattle, WA. I also bought a new 2004 Mach 1 just to have the first and last one made.

        Would your son consider selling the CJ428 engine?

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some p.c. to drive the message house a
    bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.

      Great to hear, what does your Ford Mustang look like?

      • buddy east September 28, 2012 at 6:17 pm Reply

        its like a maroon color, with the gold decals up the side, with a charcoal grey hood, louvers on the back glass, 4 speed on the floor 428 cobra jet motor, and the interior is custom made. We rebuilt it from the ground up.

    The BOSS 429 was a real de-tuned NASCAR engine not meant for street dragging. The real collectable is the 427 2×4 sideoiler engine in the 67′.
