The Ford Mustang proved to be the ultimate combination of affordability and performance, and American motorists could not get enough of it, but as the late 60s came along, Ford had added multiple specialty models to grow interest and sell more cars. With five performance models in showrooms for the 1969 model year, Ford decided to introduce a sixth version: the Mach 1. The Mach 1 Mustang first hit the dealerships in the fall of 1968 in an effort to attract younger auto enthusiasts and to make Ford cool again. The Mach 1 package stood for speed and performance, ranking among the top tier of the brand’s legendary performance offerings. Available only in the SportsRoof body style, the 1969 Mach 1 featured a host of cosmetic changes that separated the performance package from other fastback Mustangs.
This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback offered for sale on Mecum Auctions serves as one of the last of the first-generation Mustang before the Ford Mustang II was introduced in 1974. The car is equipped with a Q-Code 351 CI 4V Cobra Jet V-8 engine paired to a 4-speed manual transmission.
Finished in Medium Yellow Gold over a black interior, this 1973 Mach 1 is equipped with several desirable factory options that includes high-back bucket seats, a center console, Pioneer AM/FM/Cassette stereo, wood-grain interior appointments, gauge package, twin sport sideview mirrors, front and rear spoilers and blackout trim.
Presented in excellent condition all throughout and with the odometer showing 50,374 miles at the time of cataloguing, it should make for an eye-catching addition to any American classic collection and for wowing crowds during muscle car meets or events!
