Greetings all. I'm not a Mach I owner but I have owned a '69 convertible for 41 years and am a big Mustang fan. I hope to learn more about the Mach I's and will contribute when I can.

Good day New

Stumbled on this site via the 69stang site - amazing how you can break down a single model of a car...

I live in the south of England within sight and sound of Gatwick Airport and acquired my second Mach 1 last year.

My first was a 73 Mach 1 which I got as a straight swap for a 1976 Chevy Caprice Wagon (the full size with clamshell tailgate) in 1980. I got it without knowing much about Mustangs, and despite it being in the UK for only a couple of years it was well and truly rusting away. Served me well for a year or so, till I swapped it for a Reliant Scimitar GTE (of which I had 3 models over the next 25 years or so).

According to the government agency website, it is no longer registered so I guess the rust did for it.

Roll forwards too many years and the lack of a fun car (I sold the last Scimitar in 2007 after 21 years) and a legacy from a late aunt started to have an effect. A years 'persuasion' and my wife gave in - just as I found a 69 S Code Mach 1 for sale at the other end of the country...

From what I know of the car it was built in San Jose on 13th February 1969, sold in Portland, Oregon in April (not sure if that was to the dealer or the customer) and at the moment there’s no history until February 2007 when it was sold from Trail in Oregon to Mesa Arizona as good base for a project. The Arizona owner then bought so much stuff for it that it filled the car and boot when the UK importer acquired it in 2012 – I have the invoices to hand for over $10,000… The Arizona owner never got the car finished so it was registered using the title supplied by the Oregon seller of 2007.

When acquired in the US it was in primer, and has now is Chrysler Intense Blue mica, with a gloss blackout on the hood. It’s not a concours job, but then I’d not want one for fear of damage at any point. I like clean cars, but concours isn’t something that I’m going to ever take part in. Originally it was Indian Fire red but I have no problem with its new colour.

I've now done around 1500 miles since acquiring it - and getting used to a left hooker in a right hand drive country once again. I've had a couple of niggles but nothing I couldn't sort myself - no tracking sensor issues buried deep in a packed engine bay - and as it lay unused for many years I'm not complaining about that!

I would have added some images, but it seems I need 2 posts so they will have to wait a while...

            Hello fellow Mach 1 Guru's,

I am from Chicago and have recently had the privilege of purchasing a 73 Mach that I have been looking for for a good 20 years. A little about the car that I am proud to call mine is it spent all it's life in SC exept for the last 2 years in Georgia. It has been restored to original condition appx 20 yrs ago.

Hi All
I live in outback Australia and recently picked up a incomplete 72 fastback in very poor condition. Its left hand drive and needs a lot of work but the original 351 Clevo and C4 seem ok!

Hi, I have been a Mustang fan since I can remember. I currently own a 68 GT/CS 390 car (since high school) and am coming up on owning a '72 Mach 1 project. In '78 my older brother had a Boss 351 so I'm knida partial to the body style. I'm sure I will find tons of help here.

I'm new to the club. Out searching for resources to restore my son's 1970 Mach 1. He will probably become a member later. I used to own two 1971 Mach 1 Mustangs back in the 80's but let them slip away along with a 1964 Falcon Sprint. We decided to locate a Mustang for my oldest son and my younger son will take over my first car which is a 1974 Gran Torino Sport. The 70 Mach 1 will be quite the project as it has rust in the floor pans, torque boxes, and frame rails. We will need lots of advice.
