(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST Check out this special order purple 1969 Mach 1 ordered by Russ Davis Ford of Covina, California. Yes, this is a match to the original color! which is currently undergoing restoration and is our Attitude Of The Week starting July 27th 2022. Russ Davis Ford was known for its involvement in racing, including having several drivers as salesman like Gas Ronda. So it is not surprising that they ordered many bright specially painted Mach 1 Mustangs in 1969. Most of them were ordered in May and June of 1969 but this one was earlier with a build date of October 1968. We think Russ Davis wanted one of the first 1969 Mach 1 Mustangs in its showroom so they ordered this special one late in 1968. Thomas and his wife have owned this car for 8 years and it was many different colors. During its last restoration, Revolution Speed Shop of Auburn Washington found its original color on a piece of the front fascia. Only a few special order purple colors were available in 1968/69 from Ford and this is one of them. Peter of thecoralsnake.com helped verify this color was indeed available in 1968. Stay tuned for additional photos as the car becomes completed.
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST Russ Davis special ordered several 1969 Mach 1 Mustangs in bright colors probably to promote the race cars and drivers like Gas Ronda who also worked as a salesman. We have several of these special 1969 Russ Davis performance special Mach 1 Mustangs on our site. This one has a door data tag DSO and special order number of 71 1323, where the others are 71 3200 and 71 3313 which are later.
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST The door data tag reads: 63C blank 5 3W 07K 711323 A 6. These codes mean: 63C fastback/sportsroof body style, blank paint code indicating a special order paint, 5 in the paint code section for the blacked out hood, 3W trim code for the white Clarion knit vinyl Mach 1 hi-back bucket seats, 07K scheduled build date of October 7th, 1969, 71 1323 ordered in the Los Angeles area with special order number 1323, A 3.5:1 rear axle, and 6 4-speed close ratio manual transmission.
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST A peek inside of the R-code, 428ci, Cobra Jet, Ram Air, 335hp, V8. Very cool!
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST This will not be a restoration to original factory specs/options, but changes are reversible. Check out the 428 Cobra Jet hood scoop peeking out at the top.
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST Cool side closeup showing off that amazing special order purple color. Check out our purple Mustang page to see all the purple shades available.

(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST Nice close-up of the rear decklid showing off that amazing special order purple again.
(from page 25 of the 1969 Collection) NEW POST This is one trim part which shows the original Ford WT9106 special order purple paint under the Calypso Coral aftermarket paint. Thanks to the Revolution Speed Shop in Auburn Washington for find this out and for Thomas and his wife for bringing it back.

Has viewer comments (from page 31 of the 1970 Collection) Did Ford really make a Purple 1970 Mustang Twister Special Mach 1 Mustang? Well, at least a 1/18th scale, die cast model was made of one. We are looking into the references (Mustang 1964 1/2-1968 by Tom Corcoran, page 96) of a 1967 Twister Special Mustang offered in the Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana area. If you have more information on this toy or a purple Twister Special, let us know.
