Yellow Mach 1
Check out this 1972 Mustang ad featuring a yellow 1972 Mach 1 Mustang fastback. It is titled, "Control and balance make a beautiful experience." It shows the Mach-1 in front of a sail boat and a sunset (or sunrise). It goes on to say, "You don't sail a boat just to get across the water. The fun is in the doing. The pleasure of motion under control. Mustang drivers understand that. If all they wanted was to get from here to there, they'd be driving something else. Not a Ford Mustang."
