All the right Mustang muscle-car buzzwords can be used to describe this 1969 model: Mach 1, R-code, Super Cobra Jet, Shaker and Drag Pack. Rare to begin with as one of very few Mach 1s built with the ram-air 428 Super Cobra Jet, close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 4.30 Traction-Lok rear axle, the SportsRoof is made even rarer by its Candy Apple Red paint and Dark Red interior-in fact, only 33 were produced with these engine and trim options. According to the Marti Report, only five other 1969 Mach 1s were equipped the same. Deservedly, the red-on-red Mach 1 has completed an exceptional, concours-level restoration by Marque specialists using mostly original equipment and components, right down to the markings beneath the hood and factory styled wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires. With the R-code 428 Cobra Jet, the Mach 1 came from the factory with the functional Shaker hood scoop that crammed cooler outside air into the 335 HP engine under full throttle. When ordered with the optional 4.30 rear gears, the 428 was upgraded to a Super Cobra Jet at the factory by adding an oil cooler, heavy-duty connection rods and special balancing. The SportsRoof-only body style added plenty of supercar image with the blackout hood, cable-attached click-pins, gold reflective strips, dual racing mirrors, quad exhaust tips and a unique interior with Clarion-knit high-black bucket seats, molded door panels, console, wood-grain trim and passenger-side clock. Sold new at Marshall Motor Company in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, the Super Cobra Jet Mach 1 retains its original engine and transmission and is documented by a Deluxe Marti Report, four build sheets and a quality checklist. Additional factory options include power front disc brakes and an AM Radio. The popular front spoiler, rear wing and rear window slats have also been added.
