Volume No. 9 of CarTech’s In Detail series covers the 1969 Mustang Mach I. This model was Ford’s attempt to create a package and a style to match the performance of its recently released and very potent 428-ci Cobra Jet engine package. Displacing the still available but more conservative GT trim, the Mach I included unique and innovative graphics as well as mechanical innovations including shaker hood scoops, dual racing mirrors, deluxe interiors, competition suspension, dual chrome exhaust tips, and blacked-out hoods.
