Hey there everyone, my name is Mike and I live in Michigan. I own a 1969 Mach 1 sport roof with a 428 cj under the hood. I try to do a little to it every year, I hate to just through alot of cash at it at once. I only have left to do on it is replace the rear end to a possi and I am finally done with it. I am just not a fan of the one wheel peel! I am 38 so I never drove a car like that before and don't really like the rear end thats in it. I am just having a hard time deciding on the right gear for it, I don't drive highway with it so I am not to worried about that. Always open for suggestions and good conversation topics. I will post some pics when the weather breaks and I can get my girl out of the garage! Have a great day all!!!!

Welcome, A 3.50 posi should give pretty good launch with a 428 and still be pretty livable day to day, just a thought. JTS 71 Mach1

Welcome Mike,

We look forward to seeing the 69 when you can safely pull it from the garage.

I agree with JTS71 on the choice of a 3:50 for an generally enjoyable ratio. If you want a little more snap go a bit numerically higher or it you want a little more highway drive-ability go just a tad numerically lower.

Anyway - enjoy the site. Glad to have you with us.

Hello, my name is Patrick and I am from Northern Virginia and I own a 69 Mach 1. I have owned this car since I was 17 and now I am turning 44 and in the process of putting it back together after way too many years of it being at a body shop and nothing happening to it. This will be the second time putting the car back together, first time was when I bought it from the owner of the body shop that had it.

I am shooting to get this car back on the road by the summer time, wish me luck. I will be checking this forum site out a lot for advise and where to fid some parts and techniques to finish me renovation.

Thanks,
390mach1

Hey Mike welcome to the site. It sounds pretty unanimous that 3.50 gears are a favorite here and I agree too. I just installed 3.89's in my car but have not yet driven it so I am unable to opine on whether I like them or not. However, I have do have a set of 3.50's to fall back on if I need to make a change.

I look forward to seeing some pictures when you get your car as I am also a big fan of the 69 Mach especially the 428's!

Welcome Martin.

Glad to have you here.

Feel free to start your own thread and introduce both yourself and your Mach 1 to us personally.

How long have you had your Mach 1? How did you come about wanting a U.S. car and finding one to purchase?

Jump on in and enjoy the site.
