1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra-Jet
I just love it when I find a vehicle that has ALL of the features that you look for when you are searching for an investment grade classic car. Such was the case when I acquired this absolutely gorgeous, all numbers matching, and rotisserie restored 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra-Jet Drag Pack 4-Speed car!
Featured in arguably the most beautiful color combination of (Code F5) Gulfstream Aqua wrapped around a beautiful (Code 3WA) White Clarion Knit Vinyl interior, this ’69 Mach 1 428 SCJ car is an absolute show stopper! Powered by its original numbers matching 429ci Super Cobra-Jet motor & original numbers matching 4-Speed Close Ratio Transmission, and rotisserie restored to MCA Gold quality standards, this Mach 1 SCJ simply has it all folks! According to the Deluxe Marti Report, this rare Q-Code Mach 1 is one of (2) identical twins that were shipped to Castner Ford Sales Inc. in Wahiawa Hawaii, and it is also one of the very rare ‘Heater Delete’ cars. Factory options include: 428 SCJ Q-Code motor, 3.91 Traction-Lok Axle (Drag Pack), Power Front Disc Brakes, Sport Deck Rear Seat, Heater & Defroster Delete, Tinted Glass-Complete, F70-14 Wide Oval Tires, Deluxe Belts & Warning Light. This car has full ownership history and even retains the original Hawaii license plates. The gorgeous color combination creates the perfect tropical look, which makes it very easy to imagine this car parked on a beautiful beach in Hawaii.
A complete nut & bolt rotisserie restoration was performed a few years back and the final results are simply outstanding! All of the original rust-free sheet metal (including floors & torque boxes) is laser straight all of the way around the car, and the factory correct Gulfstream Aqua paint is absolutely gorgeous, w/ a deep lustrous shine. This color has to be seen in person to truly appreciate how beautiful it is. In contrast w/ the White bucket-seat interior, matte black sport hood, and gold stripes, it is one of the finest looking color combinations that I have ever seen on a classic Mustang. All chrome & stainless trim is in show quality condition throughout. Sitting on the original Chrome Styled Steel Wheels wrapped w/ Goodyear Polyglas F70-14 tires, this gorgeous Mach 1 looks like it just rolled off of the assembly line.
When you open up the driver’s door and slide into the beautiful White Clarion knit Vinyl Hi Back Bucket Seat interior, you can’t help but feel like it’s 1969 all over again! All interior features are factory correct w/ concours touches throughout. All original gauges, lights, blinkers, radio, etc., are in perfect working order. Please look closely at the photos to see what a beautiful job was done during the extensive restoration process.
When you pop open the hood, the first thing you will notice is how beautifully detailed the engine bay is w/ all correct NOS hoses, clamps, battery, etc. Nestled inside the engine bay you will find the original numbers matching 428ci Q-Code motor w/ all correct numbers matching components throughout, including: the 428 block, crank, CJ heads, CJ exhaust manifolds, carburetor, oil cooler snorkel, tube & heat shield. Even the vacuum switch is date code correct! The original numbers matching 428 SCJ motor is linked the original numbers matching close-ratio 4-Speed manual transmission, which feeds power to the original 3.91 Traction-Lok rear axle (Drag Pack). She fires up w/ the flick of the wrist and settles into a nice smooth idle, and when it’s time to get out on the street, you will see why these cars were so popular w/ street racers back in the day! This 428 SCJ Mach 1 runs & drives beautifully in every way and has loads of power & torque! The close-ratio 4-Speed transmission shifts nice & smooth, pulling hard through all four gears, and the factory Power Front Disc Brakes help bring you to a smooth stop after you get going. There is no way getting around the fact that this is a stunningly beautiful classic muscle car that creates a crowd everywhere it goes. If you don’t like attention this is not the car for you! This beautiful 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra-Jet car is fully documented w/ the Deluxe Marti Report, stacks of receipts & photos from the nut & bolt rotisserie restoration, complete ownership history, title & registration history, and even the original Hawaii license plates.
An investment grade classic muscle car if there ever was one, this ’69 Mustang Mach 1 SCJ car will only appreciate in value in the coming years, that’s a fact. Whether you are looking for an investment for the future, or simply want a perfect classic car that will win First Place trophies at any national car event that you decide to enter, this is your car!
