1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1


“”It still looks like a Mustang but it’s the toughest one yet.”” – Car and Driver, November 1968

The Car and Driver writers continued with their first reactions to the then-new Mustang offering: “”Outwardly the Mach I is a blend of dragster and Trans-Am sedan. In a year when every manufacturer offers hood scoops, Ford outdoes them all with an AA/Fuel dragster-style bug-catcher sticking right out through a hole in the hood. Even more than that, it’s only partially ersatz. The scoop is authentically shaped right down to the ribs that adorn its exterior, and since it really fastens to the top of the air cleaner, instead of the hood, it spends all of its waking hours vibrating hack and forth with engine motion just like the real thing. That’s just a start. The hood-which is almost entirely flat black-is held down in front by locking pins in the true NASCAR/road-racer tradition and so the retainer pins don’t disappear into the hands of the first sticky-fingered collector to come along, they’ve been secured to the car with plastic-covered steel cables.””


Offered here is a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach1 in original Acapulco Blue over black. The car has been beautifully maintained and its legendary, Boss 302 V8 has been professionally balanced and blueprinted. Manufactured on November 21, 1968 and originally delivered to Hull-Dobbs Ford in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the Mach 1’s odometer reads 78,132 miles, or roughly just 1,300 miles pe-year on average since new. This long-term Tennessee-owned car remains in great condition. The Mach 1’s Deluxe Marti Report is included in the sale.

The factory Acapulco Blue exterior paint retains excellent gloss and consistency. It was an excellent choice for this legendary blue-oval model. The metallic finish perfectly highlights the flowing, new-for-1969 body style, in particular its roofline, rear-fender air intakes, and forward-sloping front end. The matte-black finish is similarly consistent on the lower-front spoiler, eggcrate-design front grille, hood (and hood scoop) with a single surrounding pinstripe, rear-window louvers, and rear-deck spoiler.

There is no damage, not even dings, on any body panel. Chrome trim is likewise excellent across front and rear bumpers, hood pins, grille trim, lower bodyside trim, window trim, and door handles. Factory badging-including driver’s-side-offset grille emblem, running-horse circular badge on the sail panels, M-u-s-t-a-n-g lettering on the rear deck, and fuel-filler cap with Mustang logo-is all properly in place.

Mach1-identifying, black-and-gold, graphic side stripes, and black rear stripe, are crisp with no deterioration, fading, or chips. All lighting lenses, including on the four headlights (a design-first on Mustangs in 1969) and the six taillights, are clear and uncracked. Cabin glass is free of flaws. The 5-spoke, 14-inch chrome-trimmed, styled steel wheels are mounted with BFGoodrich® Radial T/A, raised-white-letter tires.

The Mach 1’s interior is every bit as well-kept. Woodgrain trim with Mustang emblems highlights black molded door panels with roll-up window cranks and stereo speakers. Chrome door-sill trim (with blue-oval Ford logo) is in excellent condition, evidence of meticulous owner care. Original seat upholstery is black vinyl with horizontally pleated, woven-vinyl center inserts; high-back front bucket seatbacks feature a single red vinyl stripe. (A small worn area of the welting on the driver’s seat bolster is a minor flaw.) A replacement brass-riveted, wood-rim steering wheel with brushed-metal spokes and a Mustang logo center frames four circular instrument openings set in woodgrain. (The factory-original steering wheel is included in the sale.) A SunPro® tachometer is mounted on the left-hand side of the steering column.

The padded black dash is free of damage. The center stack includes a replacement, woodgrain-trimmed, Ford-branded AM-FM stereoradio (showing patina from use), and heat and ventilation slide-level controls below. Facing the front passenger is an analog clock set in more matching woodgrain, and a Mach 1 emblem. (All the teak-toned, Mach 1-specific woodgrain trim in the car matches.) A black center console with cupholders and a combination armrest-storage box, also hosts the Hurst® t-bar shifter for the professionally rebuilt 3-speed manual transmission. Black cabin carpeting is protected with rubber mats in front. The car’s trunk floor wears its original gray speckled paint with matching vinyl cover for the spare.

Opening the hood reveals the balanced and blueprinted Boss 302 V8 (wearing its original, Ford-blue block paint) in a clean, tidy engine bay, thankfully not treated with shine-enhancing sprays. The cast, finned valve covers bear the “”Boss 302″” identification, and the air cleaner is the proper open-top design for incoming air via the hood scoop. All components are properly installed, and all hoses and wiring are correctly routed. Viewed from below, the chassis is clean, complete and undamaged. The full-length, properly routed performance exhaust system with crossover pipe is a focal point.

The car’s original build, identification, and informational tags all remain as mounted at the factory.

While the more than 150 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available here showcase this ’69 Mach 1 in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections.

    The reserve is now OFF – this mustang will be SOLD today!

  • Tommyboy says:

    Is this a Mach 1 with a boss 302 engine, and I can’t remember Ford offering a 3 speed transmission with the Mach 1, I only remember 4 speed.

  • Jeremy B. says:

    The motor was professionally built with dyno sheet at 450hp and 450

  • sharphome3939 says:

    Nice looking car. It would have been interesting if Ford had produced Mach 1’s with a 302, interesting transplant. Anyway, could you post the correct motor info….All the motor information currently in the description is for a 440 Chrysler product, not a Ford…maybe proofread these before posting.

    • ACC Auctions says:

      we take responsibility for not catching that when listing the vehicle. good catch and thank you for pointing out the error.
