1969 Ford Mustang Fastback
Fastback Car for sale by Classic Car Studio in Saint Louis, Missouri 63144
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
Built on November 4th, 1968, in Dearborn, Michigan, this 1969 Mustang Mach 1 R code was completed 25 days behind schedule due to a labor strike. The Mustang is finished in Candy Apple Red with the blacked-out hood, over a White Clarion Knit interior. Most Red cars were ordered with a black interior and only 7.1% of them had white interiors according to the Marti Report.
This Mach 1 is the recipient of a complete rotisserie restoration back to excellent condition. The car comes with a Marti Report documenting the options on the car, a binder full of receipts documenting the thousands of dollars in parts used during the restoration, and also documentation for the paint and bodywork and engine rebuilt, etc...
This car was ordered with the most powerful engine available in the 1969 Mach 1, the “R” code 428/4V with the Ram air option, and the C6 transmission. The same engine was available without the “shaker” option which is known as the Q code. Luckily for us, Ford made it easy by putting the engine designation in the VIN, so just by looking at the actual car, we know this to be a factory R code Mustang. This car has the original engine with the matching serial number, and the correct date code heads, and intake. The engine was completely rebuilt and received all new pistons, rings, bearings, cam, lifters, pushrods and springs. The castings on the engine parts are mid/late August of 1968 which are correct for a car with an October 10th build date. The transmission is a C6 Cruise-o-Matic, but not the original. It was rebuilt with the correct tail shaft which is only found on cars with 427/4v engines. The rear end is the correct factory 3.50 Traction-Lok axle. The engine compartment is highly detailed complete with the factory emissions equipment, correct lines, hoses, and clamps.
Optional axle ratio
F70x14 Traction tires
Power front disc brakes
Cosmetically the car is presented in excellent condition with show quality paint and excellent brightwork. The undercarriage of the car was fanatically refinished/detailed and has the correct red oxide finish complete with Candy Apple overspray. The interior looks as good as the exterior and features all-new soft components and restored original components such as the factory dash tach which is a rare sight in an automatic car.
