Candy Apple Red 1969 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Frank Hoover from Levittown, Pennsylvania. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 23, 2011. It's an original R-code 428ci Cobra Jet car. Frank tells us more, "I bought this car in 2001. Originally I wanted a red 1968 428 fastback (which are hard to find). I was ready to buy one in Ohio from a dealer but by the time I got there the car was already sold. Two weeks later I found out about this Mach 1. I knew when I saw it on the showroom floor I wanted it. It was delivered two weeks later and I have been enjoying it ever since. This is an R-code 1969 Candy Apple Red 428CJ 4-speed shaker car. It has manual steering but it has power brakes which is needed - it is easy to spin this car sideways with the power it has. I have driven to car shows and even attended the Mustang Club of America shows and took Silver in the Concourse Class as well as Best Of Show in many local shows." |

1969 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Richard Kiggins from Pocatello, Idaho. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 20, 2011. Richard tells us more, "I am the third (told by seller) owner of this original 390, 4 speed car. It was repainted in 1993 in Rio Red - the color was picked by the last owner. The seller I purchased this car from never titled the car - it sat in a garage or barn for several years. Originally it was Candy Apple Red with a red interior, and had the black out hood paint. It was ordered with a tach dash and the console, but not the fold down back seat."

Red 1969 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Mark Houseman from Hahira, Georgia. Mark adds, "I just purchased this 1969 Mustang 'R' code 428 Cobra Jet Ram Air 4-speed. It has 41071 original miles. The previous owners had it since it was less than a year old, almost a 'one owner' car. It is bone stock but had a paint/color change when it was a year old. Some where along the line the interior was changed from white to black (I don't
understand why anyone would do that.)"

Candy Apple Red 1970 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Paul Stein from Fergus Falls, Minnesota. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 19, 2010. "This is the car I drove by on my way to work. I could not help loving it. She was owned at the time by an Auto Detailer in Bloomington, Minnesota. As luck would have it, one fall November day in 1982 as I was pulling into my previous employer Freeway Fords lot, there she sat in the used car row. Further investigation led me to find out that she was there for sale on consignment. Well as soon as I could, I went to visit its owner and inquired about the Stang. We came to an agreement that if it did not sell at Freeway, I could buy her for $2800. Well being the time of the year it was, she did not sell for Freeways asking price and the deal was made between its owner and I. It was not easy to put together the $2800 then but with help from Family, I was able to seal the deal after Thanksgiving 1982. I know little of its owner who originally put the car into the state it is in today. As you see it now is the way it looked when I purchased it. I do know it was painted its Candy Apple Red color while he was going to Auto Body class at Dunwoody in Mpls sometime in the late 70s. As you can see, the paint is holding up pretty well."

Bright Lime 1971 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Dewey Castelein from Battle Creek, Michigan. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 2, 2014. Dewey shares, "I'm the second owner of this car. I bought it back in 1979 in California. It has tilt steering, Rim Blow, fold down rear seat, front and rear spoiler, louvers, Mach 1 stripes, the Boss 351 Ram Air (functional) hood and tail light panel, and LED sequential tail lights. I got the last OEM Ram Air through Ford dealer. I ordered it in 1981 and the Parts Department checked the microfiche and saw that there were only five left in Ford's inventory. When the parts guy started calling for the system, three were already sold. I ordered one and my buddy ordered the other one. One week later, mine showed up but my buddy's never did."

My late father was co-owner of the Ford Dealership in which the vehicle was originally sold. He would have ordered the car for stock inventory. I have also met the original owner of the car. He approached me at a car show and stated he had been looking for the car. He brought his wife back to see it as he had proposed to her in that car. The car has a 4-speed in it now but I have a T-5 ready to go in."

Paul had this story to share, "I had just moved to Michigan from Texas. My Father (Doug) had been into car shows and got me interested. LOL when he said, 'I found you a Mustang, lets go look at it.' When we drove up he said, 'There it is.' I said, 'Where?' He said, 'There.' I saw the car and I said, 'No, that is not a Mustang. That is a POS! Where is the pony?' He said, 'On the front
and the back.' I looked and said, 'Oh, Mustang II.' It is all original."

Cream 1977 Mach 1 Mustang II hatchback owned by Dale Jefferson. This Mustang II has a 302ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. It's our featured Attitude Of The Week starting the week of January 4, 2015. Dale shares this story, "My uncle bought this Mach I new in 1977. I bought it from him in 1985-86. I was T-boned in the drivers door in 1989 and it spent the next 25 years in my Father's barn. Apparently, my Father has been working on the restoration for a while now and surprised me with these photos for Christmas 2014. It is all factory original colors, etc. The only modification was the addition of a tape deck back in the 80s. The only thing I am going to do to it is add some white letter tires. I hope to get home to drive it soon."

Zinc Yellow 2003 Mach 1 Mustang coupe owned by Robert VanAckooy from Hyde Park, New York. Robert tells us more, "I had someone do a search in May of 2009, and they found this Mach 1 in New Jersey with just over 8,000 miles. This was done through a service station/used car dealer where I have serviced my cars over the past two years. They went down to inspect the Mach 1 and brought it back for me. The car is mint. Like new inside and out. It was like getting a brand new Mach 1, but at a considerable savings. I put over 2,500 miles on the car from June to December. Now, it spends most of the winter in a garage - only coming out on days when the roads are clear of snow and salt. This is my second Mach 1. I had a 1973 Mach 1 when I was young."
