Isn't F code a 260 ci motor? Even weirder. Dave R.

I find conflicting info on what exactly is a F code but the base engine in '69 Mach 1 was the 2bbl. 351. Right? There was nothing smaller available in a Mach 1. Unless some production line foul-up happened?

Hi Dave, thanks for your response, im pretty certain an F code on a 69 Mustang is a 302 but obviously not available in a Mach 1 as you said 351 2bbl was the smallest.
I didnt want to say anything to the person at the time of reading it because it just seemed so odd to me on a 63c car (according to the door tag) and i also didnt want to make him feel that his car may actually not be a Mach 1 but a standard sportsroof with a deluxe interior, does anyone know if 63c actually means Mach 1 or can it mean deluxe interior also.

I think that you are correct on the F being a 302. One chart that I looked at said 260 but 302 seems to be the correct F code. The 63c on the data plate designates a Mach 1 and only a Mach 1. Of course the Mach 1 came only in the sportsroof and with a deluxe interior. Dave R.

It all sounds amusing. But in the end I think this poor guy was taken advantage of by the seller. Or, he knows what he has but wants it to be something else.

Should always do some research before shopping so you are familiar and know what to look for. The seller shouldn't be a crook as well.

My car didn't have a door tag when my older brother purchased it. But it had all the features of a Mach 1 and an "M" engine vin code. Later on, both a Marti Report and a letter from Ford Motor Company prove it to be a Mach 1 optioned as my brother purchased it.

My 69, which I bought in 1978, is a 63C Mach 1 with an “M” code. It has its original gas cap that has a “GT” on it. Nothing else says GT anywhere. I still have the original engine for it. Haven’t noticed anything else different with he car.

Maybe they ran out of Mach 1 gas caps!!!  You have added another interesting tidbit to the story. Now if you had a Marti Report on yours, that could answer alot of questions.
