1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428There is no car which is as emblematic of the styling, taste, and sensibility of the muscle car era as the Ford Mustang Mach 1 fastback. And among Mach 1 fastbacks, there is nothing quite so potent, well respected, and so collectible as the ferocious 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1.
This 1969 Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1 is stunningly finished in Black Jade Metallic with blackout shaker hood and White Clarion knit Corinthian Vinyl Hi-back bucket seats, and features: original and correct 8H9 code stock and professionally rebuilt 428 Cobra Jet V8, 8H9 code cylinder head, 8H15 code crank assembly, with approximate engine build and delivery date of August 21-31 1968 for R code installation, with actual build date of October 12, 1968, original stock, rebuilt close ratio four speed manual transmission, with original 9 inch rear end with fresh 3.91 ring and pinion, correct Shaker Ram air hood, with added Drag Pack center console gauges, original factory Hurst shifter and knob, factory front and rear spoilers, original wood steering wheel, fresh interior and door trim, original am/fm radio, Marti Report, and more.
This is a spectacular and highly correct Cobra Jet registered in the 428 Cobra Jet Registry, one of 1,080 factory R code 428 Ram air Cobra Jets produced in 1969, one of 621 manual transmissions produced, and without questions one of the very nicest and most collectible Mustangs one may acquire in the foreseeable future!
Short of Shelby documented cars, these Cobra Jets are one of the absolute pillars of the collectible Mustang market, cars which are continuing their steady appreciation, out performing most stocks, and cars which will still be growing in value long after the outrageous prices of 426 Mopars have gone the way of the dinosaur. If you could choose one investment level car to safely invest in for the next five to ten years—you are most certainly looking at it!
