“From its pinned hood to its tape-striped spoiler, the Mach I is the 1969 edition of what Ford Motor Company stylists think you want in a specialty car. It still looks like a Mustang but it's the toughest one yet.” –Car and Driver, November 1968
Offered here is the fabled '69 Mustang Mach 1 Fastback (Ford called it a SportRoof) in highly desirable collector condition. Owned by the same California family since new, this is a very well documented, excellent condition, survivor Mach 1. The car's accompanying Deluxe Marti report shows it was built in Ford's Dearborn, Michigan plant on December 20, 1968, and right before the Christmas holiday, was shipped to the San Jose, California District Sales Office for dealer assignment. Fifty-three years later, the car now displays the obvious pride of ownership and commitment to meticulous care of the family that owned it across those five decades. In all that time, only about 37,000 miles have been put on the car, a remarkably low 700 miles per year.
The original Wimbledon White (Ford code 1619-A) shows excellent gloss across the entire body. The flat-black hood and scoop retain their original look and finish. Both chrome hood pins remain attached to the car. Body-panel fit and alignment is factory-correct. There is no evidence whatsoever of damage, body repairs, or body rust. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. Body-side and rear Mach 1 tape stripes are perfectly aligned. Emblems—including the off-center Mustang logo in the grille, the “351” identification on the hood scoop, the circular chrome Mustang badges on the rear quarters, and the individual letters spelling out “Mustang” on the rear deck—are all in excellent condition and properly located. The bespoke styled steel wheels (mounted with BFGoodrich raised-white-letter T/A tires) show beautifully with trim rings free of curb rash. Chrome bumpers front and back are dent-free.
Inside, the white knit vinyl upholstery shows beautifully, especially so on the high-back front bucket seats. The color is almost ivory. Pedals include the metal-trimmed accelerator and power-disc-brake-identified brake pedal. A wood-rim, Mustang-branded steering wheel frames large, round, driver-focused instruments including speedometer and gauges for monitoring electrical charging, engine coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure. The black dash features tasteful, matching wood-grain trim (with “Mach 1” emblem) surrounding both the driver instruments and the analog clock facing the front passenger. The center stack includes the push-button AM-FM stereo radio, vents, and slide-lever controls for heat and air conditioning. A t-shifter for the Select Shift automatic transmission and an armrest/storage bin are located on the console. Door trim matches the upholstery color with wood-grain panels adorned with the Mustang logo. Original black carpeting covers the fold-down “SportDeck” rear seatbacks as well as the cabin floors (protected by Mustang-branded mats in front).
Beneath the hood, the matching-numbers 351 cubic-inch “Cleveland” V8 resides beneath its stock, Ford-blue air cleaner. The engine bay is well ordered and clean, but the owner has refrained from over-detailing it. Original vehicle-identification plates remain in place. Underneath the car, the chassis shows original condition with surface rust on some unprotected metal surfaces. The dual exhaust shows no damage from overly aggressive driving.
Original sales literature, documents, owners manual, build sheet, and Deluxe Marti Report accompany the car.
The well-preserved, highly original condition of this '69 Mustang Mach 1 fastback is faithfully presented from every angle (including from below) in the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available at the GarageKeptMotors site.

Mustang owners and collectors rightly value original-condition cars. After all, the Ford Mustang is a standout icon of American automobile history. In the long line of Mustangs over the years, the '69 Mach 1 holds a special place of honor. This Wimbledon White car is sure to delight its owner, as well as every Mustang aficionado who lays eyes on it.
