4 Speed Manual
White, Mach 1 Knitted Vinyl
The options and specs listed above are for when new in June 1969. This car was a monster 390 4 speed positraction shaker scoop Mach 1. It was made and delivered in Metuchen New Jersey and somehow made out to Arizona. Somewhere along the line it was wrecked and blew the rear end, motor and transmission, and lost its beautiful shaker hood. On E-bay it was black and jacked up with foot wide rear tires and 302 automatic and had a welded panel where the rear bumper should be. I had to replace sheet metal all around including he doors and rad support and tail panel. While I was starting with such a mess it seemed OK to go for total restomod and make it look like a boss 429 with some minor stylistic changes. I chose the grabber blue 1970 color, shaved the horse roundels on the sill panels, 1970 twist hood locks, blacked out tail panel, and black scoop. I cut out the shock towers to fit in the 1999 cobra engine with 4R70W 4 speed auto. The computer hides in the trunk with the battery. Those big DOHC heads look like Boss 9 heads and the car is lowered so low it scrapes headers when the road dips. We had to offset the engine to fit in a power brake booster. The suspension is Rod & Custom Mustang II tubular A-arm coilover with power rack and pinion dropped spindle and mid eye rear leaf with a drop block for good measure. I have 2004 Mach i leather seats with the fold down back covered in the same material. All interior is now black with no console except for a removable one for convenience. The instruments are Dakota Digital digital even the clock with a blue glow. The radio is blue tooth with push butttons for channels and knobs looking pretty stock. The computer from an 04 Mach 1 is programmed to not need cats or passkey system. It starts from a ford key in the dash as Henry intended. 1970 was the first year for column ignition. I wanted more safety than the factory provided so there os a race fuel cell in the trunk holding the 1970 22 gallons.
