4.8 of 5 mustang attitude4.8 of 5 mustang attitude4.8 of 5 mustang attitude4.8 of 5 mustang attitude4.8 of 5 mustang attitude Has viewer comments (from page 2 of the 1969 Collection) Peter Manson's restored Poppy Green, 1969, Rainbow of Colors, Super Cobra Jet, Mach 1 fastback was our Attitude of the Week for March 8th, 2008. This amazing Mach 1 was one of 10 ordered by Russ Davis Ford of Covina California to promote his dealership and most likely his racing cars. We actually have its sister on our site. Peter has done extensive research as well as restoration on his car. The Rainbow of Colors was a west coast 1968-69 sales promotion which offered new Mustang owners many sporty upgrades as well as one of 13 special order bright colors. Many of these cars were base models, but a few; like Peter's; were higher end models. New information on Russ Davis shows that this special order may have also been for a Gas Ronda racing promotion since the famous Cobra Jet racer was promoted by Russ Davis.
(from page 2 of the 1969 Collection) Here is a close-up of the correct wheels for this car. This view also shows off the functional Cobra Jet shaker style hood scoop, hood pins, and grille mounted fog lamps. Peter is probably the second owner of this car, since he found it only a few miles away from the original dealer in California. Peter has also done extensive research on his Poppy Green color WT7034 and the other colors offered in the Rainbow of Colors west coast promotion.

(from page 2 of the 1969 Collection) Close-up of the R-code, Super Cobra Jet, 428 cubic inch, 4 barrel, V8 engine originally rated at 335hp (at 5200rpm). This is no ordinary Mustang!
(from page 3 of the 1969 Collection) Here is an earlier look at Peter's Poppy Green 1969 Rainbow of Colors Mach 1 fastback. The door data tag for this car reads: 63C fastback sportsroof body style with deluxe interior, blank followed by 5 special paint with blacked out hood, 3AA black clarion knit and vinyl Mach 1 hi-back bucket seats, 10F assembled on the 19th of June, 1969, 71 ordered in the Los Angeles area, 3313 under special order (this number specifically to Russ Davis consisting of 10 Mustangs), S 3.50:1 rear axle ratio, and U automatic transmission. All Rainbow of Colors promotional Mustangs were built in the San Jose plant (R in the VIN), and all as special orders.
(from page 3 of the 1969 Collection) Here is a look during some if the car's initial breakdown. Just a little paint and its done... NOT! Peter has been doing it the right way.

4.7 of 5 mustang attitude4.7 of 5 mustang attitude4.7 of 5 mustang attitude4.7 of 5 mustang attitude4.7 of 5 mustang attitude Has viewer comments (from page 16 of the 1969 Collection) Special Order Yellow 1969 Mustang Mach 1 fastback with a 360hp (at 5400rpm), 428 cubic inch, 4 barrel, Super Cobra Jet, V8 engine. This restored car is one of the 10 special paint cars ordered by Russ Davis Ford, Covina California for a special promotion. We are hunting through the newspapers of the time to determine what the promotion was. It could have been a 1969 carry-over of the "Rainbow of Colors" West Coast Promotion, or a "Gas Ronda" special promotion. The Rainbow of Colors promotion offered new Mustang owners one of up to 13 special "Rainbow of Colors." This car has been repainted Ford Special Paint WT6135, which a a little more orange than what we believe is the original Yellow in this group of 13 colors. But WT6135 is a period Ford special order paint! This combined with some newspaper articles of the time says that funny car racer Gas Ronda was heavily sponsored by Russ Davis in 1969 and Gas Ronda drove a modified bright "orangey reddish" Mustang Mach 1. It is possible that the 10 special colored 1969 Mach 1 Mustangs ordered by Russ Davis was for a Gas Ronda promotion. In this case a brighter yellow car may have been necessary, making the current color possibly very close to the original. What did the other 9 Mach 1 Mustangs ordered by Russ Davis look like? well here is one.
