If spy photos and rumor sites are correct, a new Mach 1 will be joining the Mustang line for 2021, replacing the Bullitt and slotted below the Shelbys. The Mustang line hasn’t had that many hotrods since 1969, the year the Mach 1 was introduced.
I paid a little over $ 30,000 CAN for my 04 Mach 1 with 1700kms on it, I just recently checked the sticker price on a 2020 Bullitt, $58,000 CAN base price.
Seems Ford wants the same profit margin on the Mustang as they get on the Pickups. I can not see myself paying more than double for a 2021 Mach 1, besides my summer only 04 has less than 90K on it, is still quiet, tight and stock and is still a joy to shift through the gears.
First gen Mach 1's could be any Mustang colour. Later gens they sometimes added a special colour into the mix (I think there is an "Azure Mist" at one point that is Mach 1 only).
Boss Mustangs originally only came in 4 colours in 69 (expanded greatly in 70) which can cause confusion --I had to double-check it was the Boss with the limited palette since I don't own either version.
I hope the new one has a limited, and unique set of colours for the Mach 1 option.
What's with the outside mirrors so high for? I find that even todays mirrors are a bit high and obstruct the view on both sides. The auto pictured seems to have an enormously long hood, is it hiding something or is it for effect. Some of its styling is rather nice. I can dig it....
I love the idea and memories of our culture and love to muscle car! I would love to change the head lamps of the new model! What about keeping the round head lamps and the fog lamps on the grille and maybe short the nose a little. I can't see the interior but I hope they keep it traditional! Cheers and stay at home!
Obviously the father / son owners of the copper Mach 1 are proud of their car. Good for them. But how about a pic or two of a '69 with a shaker hood scoop, a flat black hood (it was flat black back then, not satin), Magnum 500 wheels and white letter tires? That would represent 'the look' of that era.
