Really Big Blocks: ’70 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Q-Code
Ford unveiled three new Mustang models in 1969: the Mach 1, Boss 302 and Boss 429. Various competition-style appearance items and the GT-handling suspension were standard for the Mach 1, with engine options including the 351-cid small-block, 390 big-block or 428 Cobra Jet. We were watching Mecum Auctions in Dallas and couldn’t believe the numbers Boss Mustangs and Mach 1 Mustangs command. Don’t take that wrong, we love these Mustangs but perhaps not as much as the ’65 Fastback. After seeing a Grabber Blue Boss 428 get hammered at $180,000 we went and searched for a more reasonable alternative. We found what looks to be a really nice Yellow Factory 428 Q-Code Cobrajet Mach 1 with a whole bunch of neat accessories supported by a Marti Report (thanks Kevin). It has a 4-speed close ratio transmission, power steering and brakes, tilt wheel, sports slats, rear deck spolier and hood stripes. Of the entire build of Q-Codes which numbers 755, this one is one of one with this color and equipment. We think this is priced fairly at $56,750 based on The Hagerty Price Guide which has #3 cars at $41,000 and #1 at almost $80,000. Click here to contact the seller.
