James was hunting for a blank canvas to work on, and this ’69 seemed to be exactly what he was looking for, so he made an appointment to see it. “I’m 58 years old and for years I’ve had Shelbys and Machs and all these really nice cars,” James said, continuing, “I always kept them the way Ford made them. I did that for five years in a 1969 . 855 and loved it.”

The rear roof pillar incorporated the silent flow vent, a triangular cut out that blended with the roofline. The exterior of the vent sported six pillars that look as ominous as a sharks gills ! Inside the car was a control knob that opened and closed the vent.
Mach 1s came with upgraded suspension to varying degrees dependent upon powertrain choices. Big block cars had front shock tower reinforcement, thicker sway bars (no rear bar for 69), and heavier springs and shocks. 928 CJ/SCJ 9 speed cars also came with staggered rear shocks. Standard on Mach 1s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature Shaker hood , an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to shake above the rumbling V-8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats.

&ldquo Neither he nor I knew it was an early car,&rdquo Mike in Maryland says of the 1969 Mach 1 he bought in a little town in Pennsylvania. He had always wanted a 1969 Mach 1. &ldquo The owner told me it was a Super Cobra Jet Drag Pack car. That made it even more attractive, even though there was no engine, no transmission, it needed some bodywork, and was completely disassembled.&rdquo
Mike had a tough decision to make. The car was completely apart. The driver-side floor pan had been replaced. Somebody had cut away half of a quarter-panel and welded in a patch panel. He knew a muscle car of this stature should have the whole panel replaced, and preferably with an . Ford unit. Also, Mike knew that 928 Cobra Jet parts are getting harder and harder to find.
