Car Description

1973 Ford Mustang 2-dr Mach 1 Fastback powered by a 7.0L 472cui-4V Stroker V8 Ford ‘Cobra Jet’ big block engine and driven by a C6 3-spd console-shift automatic transmission.

               ’70 472-4V Stroker Cobra Jet V8 
               10.5:1 Compression
               Power Assist Front Disc Brakes
               Power Steering

               Mild 2200 Stall Converter

The Ford Mustang Mach 1 was first introduced in the 1969 model range as a replacement for the label ‘GT’, as it no longer was a name that would initiate images of street screeching performance for the younger drivers that Ford was trying to attract to their muscle cars. Due to the Mach 1’s success, the ‘GT’ badge was discontinued after 1969 due to poor sales and would not be reintroduced until 1982. The Mach 1 package was only available in the “SportsRoof” fastback body style.

1971 to 1973 was the 2nd generation of Mustang and the most recognizable features of these Mustangs was the optional (standard on Boss 351) NACA (NASA) hood design with dual scoops.

This car was manufactured in January 1973 and was originally equipped with a 5.8L 351-2V V8 Ram Air engine and presented in Medium Blue Metallic paint. This configuration has gone and been replaced with a ’70 429-4V Cobra Jet engine which has been bored 60”thou over and fitted with a 460 crank to now push this beast to be a 472cui Stroker. Coupled with Probe performance forged  pistons and 10.5:1 compression the engine is producing 496hp and 561 ft lbs torque at 3450 rpm.

Apart from the mechanical work detailed above, the car has been nicely restored including a very good repaint in the ’69 Mach 1 colour of Gulfstream Aqua and has had rust repairs completed, including new rear quarters, trunk drop-offs, trunk floor, driver side F & R floor pans and passenger side rear floor pan. The car is also fitted with some factory options including tilt-column adjustable steering, tachometer & gauges pack and AM/FM radio.

This is a very good driver quality car that shows in excellent condition. It is an awesome car to drive, and is geared for either street or strip performance.

This is definately one for the Big Block enthusiasts!!
