Ford Mustang Mach 1 - 1st Gen. (1969-70)

After only a few years of development of the Mustang from 1964, 
Ford saw the need to create performance Mustangs to compete with 
GM and their release of the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. 

Not until 1968, when Ford introduced the 428 cu in (7.0 L) 
Cobra Jet FE V8 engine that the Mach 1 was born in 1969.
Standard equipment was a 351 cu in (5.8 L) Windsor (351W) 2V V8 motor, 
3 speed manual transmission, that produced 250 bhp.
The top engine was the 428 cu in (7.0 L) Ramair Cobra Jet & 
Super Cobra Jet V8 (1969–1970) 4-barrel R-Code. It produced 335 bhp. 
The Mach 1 was only available in the 'Sportsroof' body style. 
Came with matte black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop. 
A few designs features were different between the 1969 and 1970 models.
