2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Back for One Final Year

Because of a strong enthusiast response to the introduction of the 2003 Mustang Mach 1, Ford committed to another sales year of Mach 1 production to slot between the Mustang GT and the SVT Mustang Cobra.

Since the Mach 1 was a performance model above the GT, it’s 4.6-liter V8 engine featured some enhancements, including high-flow cylinder heads, special cams and a sporty exhaust. These changes enable the mill to produce 305 hp and 320 lb/ft of torque. It was available as either and automatic or manual transmission.

The 2004 Mach 1 included 17-inch, 5-spoke Heritage (Magnum 500-style) wheels with the galloping pony logo inspired by the 1969-1973 Mustangs Mach 1 wheel design and 1960s-style “comfort weave” trimmed black leather seats.

The Mach-1 could be ordered in Azure Blue, a Mach-1 only paint color; or Competition Orange, Oxford White, Screaming Yellow, Dark Shadow Gray, Black, and Torch Red.

Ford produced 7,137 Mach 1’s in 2004, slightly less than the 2003s. For a full split and details of the 2004 Mach 1 production numbers check out our in-depth post.
