Hi everyone,   
I'm new to this site.  I ordered a mach 1 on May 8, 2021 Velocity Blue in color with most options except navigation, Brembo covers and Recaros. Originally ford sent me an email
stating that the order was accepted, issued me an order # and a vin # of the Mach 1 to built the week of Sept. 27. Well since then the build date has been move later 6
Times. The last build date I received on October 21 stated the the week the car would be built is now December 6. I was wondering if anyone else is in this same situation as I am? I'm concerned that Ford will push me into a 2022 Model when I ordered a 2021 Also the Velocity Blue color is no longer available as an option for 2022. I
emailed a Ford representative to see if I can get some confirmation that this order will be fulfilled, but there has been no reply as of yet.

(Update: trying to post pics but it's not working out)

Hello everyone, first off I'm proud to say I purchased my dream car at the ripe old age of 25 and I hope the Mach 1 legend carries all the way through my life and inspires some new youngsters along the way.
I bought me a Rough and Rollin' Mach 1 for 2K. I think it was a good deal but only time will tell. No motor (had a 351c), stock auto trans, front end rusted out, no rear end (has a ranger axle to roll), virtually no interior except for drivers seat and some dash components. It's been painted several times and even the interior once. Factory was light pewter metallic ext, vermillion knitted vinyl int.

My intention for the stang was to restomod the s*** out of it. However when I bought it from the guy he told me a story, emphasis on "story", about the stang and I'm doubtful of it but it might make the car a rare jewel. To me it seamed like some bs to get me to buy the car faster, or maybe the story was told to him by whoever he bought it from and actually believed it, regardless I'm not sure how much you can trust a man who went through a whole 12 pack of busch lite in the 20 or so minutes I was there lol

He said the mustang was one of the first set of cars made in the new body style, the ones they used for display at various places around the country. That it was one of the first hundred or so of the 71 body made in 70. The vin and data plate tell me otherwise but I will say the date of production on the door jamb says 9/70. I'm not sure how early in 70 they started making them or how you can tell for sure if it's a "display". Obviously the vin says 71 which is why I had my doubts but I'd hate to resto mod the car should it be true.

So that's my main question.
Anyways if the car is a standard issue 71 Mach, then I'll go ahead with my restomod build and will have many more questions regarding it.

Thanks for reading and stay classy

  New Mach 1 owner
Posted by: n.yorke@ediinc.ca - 08-24-2021, 05:17 AM - Forum: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE ! - Replies (3)

Hello fellow Mach 1 owners. 

Just wanted to say hi and give you a brief intro. 

My name is Norm, I live in Ontario Canada, married with two mature kids.  I just purchased my first Mustang and with a lot of finagling I managed to snag a Mach 1 in Fighter Jet Grey with the Handling Package.  I absolutely love the car, the sound, the presence and the power, power is ok for now. Plus the few Mustang people I've talked to seem very nice and welcoming.  

How I got this thing.... 

Last may I ordered a loaded Mustang GT that was going to Roush to get their stage 3 done to it.  My dealer introduced me to the SC Mustang GT when I stopped in to pick up a new F150 for one of my managers.  Sales guy said let me take you for a ride in a 750hp Mustang, heck ya I'm into that.  This was just a GT that the dealer put a Roush SC and X pipe on, well holly man what a beast I'd never been in something so fast or fun to drive.  It was actually the sound that hooked me.  A week later I decided to order a Stage 3 Roush GT with an X pipe.  Last week I called in for an update and Ford hasn't even assigned a VIN or moved it from Order received status.  I was majorly bummed as I knew at this rate I wouldn't see the thing until December and by then I'll have 2' of snow to deal with which really meant I wouldn't get to drive it until some time in March 2022 after the snow melted.  

Two day's later I find out they have a "used" 2021 Mach 1 in Fighter Jet Grey with the Handling Package, which is exactly how I would have specked it, the grey, black, orange combo is freaking awesome.  I called my guy and asked what the deal was.  This car they sold back in May, it had the Recaro Seat option and apparently the first owner absolutely hatted them and traded the car back in with 591km (Canada).   Not sure about the US but this car is crazy rare in Canada only 10% of the top dealers in Canada were allotted 1 Mach 1 car with this speck and not all of those were in Fighter Jet Grey.   The dealer had this one listed for $16K over MSRP in it's USED state....holly man, I wasn't a fan of the Recaro but I fit and I could fight my way in and out of the car with some effort.  Well I was going to buy it today but I thought just before I do let me check Autotrader again, to my surprise a brand new Mach 1 just like the one I test drove on the weekend got posted at a large Toronto dealer but with the regular leather seats.  I called right away, apparently the dealership was getting lots of calls and they had a guy coming in to look at it.  I told them I'd take it and could put a deposit on it right away, nope, had to wait to see what the first guy was going to say, I respect that.  They asked me to wait 4 hr and they would call me back. Boy that sucked.... I get a call 2.5hr later from the dealer and they said I could have it if I wanted it.   So I snagged it with 33km on it with the seats I wanted and only $9K over MSRP.... I buy a lot of vehicles and I've never paid more then MSRP on any of them until now, it's a bizarre feeling.   I plan on keeping this a long time so I rationalized doing it due to how rare the car will be.  

Anyhow, that's my story, look forward to all the wisdom these forums have and the Whipple SC that I'll be adding over the winter...;)

    Just found this site.  I purchased a 1972 Mach 1 (nickname Flash) in March and have been enjoying it.   I had a 1969 Sportsroof a while ago, regret getting rid of it.

Glad to find this site and become a member.   I've been a Mustang fan owning several since 1966.  Started with a new 1966, 1972, 1982, 1984, 2003, 2004 and just recently my Daughter and Son In Law surprised me a 1973 Mustang convertable with a 351C to cruise around.  Nice ride for a 74 yr old. even though I like my F-150.    As I began tinkering with this car I'm sure I'll be referring to this site for expert advise and ideas.   Have a great day...

Some pictures of my new ride of 1 month now.
It finally stopped Wimbledon inspired raining to day - so a 2 hour clean ensued.

As you can see our family Cat is rather fond of it too.
I wish I could use the picture adding thing - but I cannot get it to work

  Ordered 2021 Mach 1
Posted by: JetGray_Mach1 - 06-28-2021, 01:31 PM - Forum: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE ! - Replies (2)

Hi guys,
I am excited I just put in my order through my dealer for a 2021 Mach 1 Premium, Fighter Jet Gray, 6 speed, Mach 1 Handling package and Elite Package.

[Image: 2021-ford-mustang-mach-1.webp]


I am really going to miss my 2014 its been an awesome car. With the high trade in values right now makes sense to trade it in or sell it private.

Anyways, I really want to supercharge the Mach1 waiting on Roush to come up with the kit for the Mach 1, I do want to keep my warranty. Any of you guys running the Roush supercharger kit on the gen 3 motors? How you like it?

Reasoning for this is
a) Dont want the MT82 or another GT (Especially if I want to boost)
b) GT350 is especial but this will be my daily driver don't want to daily drive a GT350
c) This has more comforts than the GT350 for a daily driver.
d) LOVE the way the Fighter Jet Gray looks and the Mach1 name.

Here is my current 2014 GT premium I will be replacing
