Picked this up this week.......

Post  David Cole on May 28th 2017, 10:24 pm

My new toy.  69 MACH 1 IN Silver Jade.  Pretty good shape. It was originally a 351W 2V, but now has a 70 351C with 4V heads, 650 Vac sec carb, headers, small rumpy idle cam, electronic ignition.   Has the original FMX trans with a street rod type converter, 9" with 3.25 Lock Rite diff.  Drives very well and temp stays in the 170-180° range.  I already have a set of 17" aluminum Magnum 500's to put on, but will keep these as well.  Swap 'em back and forth depending on mood.











My first 351C, much to learn.

I'm in envy of you - that car looks like it's virtually brand new! The 69 Mach I is one of my favorite Stangs, the other being the 66 fastback. I lost out on buying a black on black 69 428 CJ Mach I back in 72 because I wouldn't give him the $500.00 more that he wanted - I will regret that til the day I die.

My favorite body style of all time. Use to have one but had to sell in my younger days just to survive. Would love to have another one

Probably for the best. If my pit crew saw it, they would want one Razz
