1969 Mustang Mach 1

A true Barn Find here. Well the owner knew where it was in the town of Sneedville , TN. It had sat in Barn for many years waiting its turn and was the wife that put pressure on husband to do it or sell.

The 69 Mach 1 Fastback , once back at the shop, it has been disassembled. The 351 Cleveland was taken apart and sent to machine shop for a mild rebuild. The transmission was sent to Jim Paquet of Ford transmission fame to be rebuilt. After the shell was sandblasted, it was determined the best way to repair the body was new major body panels. Rood , trunk and Quarter panels along with new doors were purchased. Correct Mach 1 seat were located. The car was heavily modified with bondo and even a sunroof. Once the body came back from the sandblaster it was very evident that a new Mustang II front suspension and rack and pinion steering was needed.

Watch this car change back into a new one.
