Notice the addition of the rear louvers? Wanna take a guess what else I have added?
If you said "SHAKER" you are right.
She does have the bad habits of drinking and smoking. That is she likes to drink gas and smoke the tires.
OK its not a shaker damn my luck. Its a warmed over 351 Windsor with a Edelbrock high rise and a Edelbrock 1405 carburetor with a
K&N air filter. Of course there is Cobra valve covers.
The transmission is a FMX which is rebuilt and a shift kit installed.
This is my 1969 Mustang Mach1 which I took ownership of on October 13th of 2001. The hunt was as thrilling as any car chase that I have seen. It was a lot of searching then getting close but to lose out in the final hours. When I bought the car it already had been restored minus a few things which I will gladly have fun fixing myself. I have to thank a good friend of mine Tom who just happened to live in Lexington Kentucky were the car was located. After talking to the seller I called Tom and said go have a look and see if I need to do anymore talking or keep looking. Well Tom called back and says "If I had the money you are looking at spending it would be sitting in my driveway" when I asked what he meant he said the same thing. So I asked are you telling me I better keep talking to the guy? He said "hell no you better just buy the darn thing". Well the next Saturday morning I was in Lexington at Toms who took me to the seller and we finalized the deal. Talk about a wild ride home. It's a little over 4 hours back home and it was worth every mile.
This is what it looked like the day it was bought home.
