20k: Long Slumber: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 “Barn” Find

Spend any time in any 69 Fastback Mustang and people will routinely ask you if it is a Mach 1.  There is something about the Mach 1 name that stirs the imagination, even if it was simply a cosmetic option (although it did require a minimum of 351W V8, but you could get that in the regular SportsRoof version).  It wasn’t like the option package was rare (75k in ’69) but sellers today ask a premium for anything with the Mach 1 logo on it and finding a sub $20k example is unusual.  Find this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 “Barn” find currently bidding for $17,700 reserve-not-met with less than an hour to go.

Checking the Mach 1 option on the ’69 Mustang order sheet meant you got the following as a minimum; fastback style, 351W, 3spd manual, 9inch 21-spline rear end,  matte black hood with racing style pins, hood scoop, pop-up gas cap and sport suspension.

This “budget” M-code Wimbledon white  example looks great for a car that hasn’t run since 1993 and is claimed to be in great condition aside from an overheating issue and a few small rust spots behind each wheel.  This is the car that you fix the cooling issue (probably head gaskets) and drive as a survivor.
