Description

This lot is no longer available

The original Mach 1 was introduced in 1968 as a concept car with a hatched fastback, aggressive hood and side scoops and a unique paint scheme. In 1969, the Mach 1 was one of three new Mustang models that made it into production.

It featured the familiar fastback body with simulated side scoops high on the quarter panel, an aggressively raked air dam on the front and a spoiler on the rear and the now famous, 'shaker' air scoop mounted directly onto the carburetor and fitting through an opening in the bonnet. The Mach I continued in production with a number of minor changes to available power train components and styling until 1974, when the much smaller Mustang II model was introduced by Ford as a knee-jerk response to the nation's 'energy crisis'.

Thus the 1973 models, with their revised colour schemes, subtle styling changes and optional 351 Cleveland-built V8 engines were the last real muscle models of the original Mach I era.
