I reviewed a dream car of mine! ('69 Mach 1)

The best looking mustang in my mind has always been the 1969 Sportsroof (I still prefer the Fastback name). When I reviewed the Foxbody the owner of said Foxbody said there was a 1969 Mach 1 in their club, and he asked me if I would be interested in reviewing that. I said yes, but in the back of my mind I doubted I was going to be given the opportunity. A 50 year old icon, my FAVORITE body style and as I later discovered, a 363 stroker with a 5 speed manual transmission. It was a dream in more than one way.

As the video (and the title) give away it happened, I drove it. I could get on it. The car even had AC which was needed at the time we reviewed the car. It also held all the condensation inside, which promptly leaked out when the car was stationary. I still dislike condensation drips from any other car including my own. I always check for that signature coolant smell, but sigh in relief when it’s just water.

The story behind the car is one that spans 3 generations, and that is amazing. Not unlike the 1965 fastback I reviewed a few years back. Old cars just have soul. Something a newer car will never have off the showroom floor. They still need to write their own story.

What is your opinion about The 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1?
