The original Ford Mustang Mach 1 (offered between 1969 and 1973) stands as an iconic representation of American automotive performance during a golden era. With a bold and aggressive design, the Mach 1 exuded power and speed. Its prominent front grille, distinctive side stripes, and a functional shaker hood scoop not only added to its visual appeal but also enhanced its aerodynamics and engine performance. These attributes, along with a range of potent V8 engines, made the 1970 Mustang Mach 1 a sought-after choice for car enthusiasts and a dominant force on both the street and the track. Over the years, its legacy has only grown, solidifying its place in the pantheon of classic American automobiles and as the perfect foundation for a resto-mod built around the ethos that, “There is no replacement for displacement.”

Ownership History

Produced at Ford’s Metuchen plant in Edison, New Jersey in October 1969, this Mach 1 was originally constructed with a 351 cu-in, 300 horsepower “M” code engine and a three-speed transmission. In 1994 it was acquired by Bill Mensinger of Derry, New Hampshire, and by the early 2000s it was restored by Mensinger as a resto-mod style build in Dandelion Yellow. Featured in period magazines, paperwork indicated that it traded hands within collector car circles before being acquired by the consignor in 2015 to become a valued part of their collection and an excellent example of classic American resto-mod performance.
