Classic Car Spotlight – The 1969 Ford Mach 1
The 1969 Ford Mach 1 is a glorious example of what a muscle car should be. ‘Fast’, ‘streamlined’ and powerful’, are all words used to describe this special car. The Mach 1 comes of age in the late ’60s when Americans, tired of the ornate and cumbersome cars of the 50’s want something new. Consequently, to accommodate these changing tastes, automakers begin to manufacture faster cars with increasinlgy powerful engines. This period in classic car history, known as the muscle car era produces some of the most iconic cars. The 1969 Mach 1, the ultimate street racer is one such iconic and desirable car.
