Unleashing Long-Hidden Potential – The Legacy of the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Cobra Jet Muscle Car

This 1969 Ford Mustang represents a Mach 1 Sportsroof model, equipped with a 428 Cobra Jet V8 engine. It was originally sold through Ken Moore Ford of Richardson, Texas, and later came into the possession of the current owner in 1989. Subsequently, a restoration project took place from 2007 to 2010. This undertaking reportedly encompassed a thorough engine overhaul, body stripping, replacement of the trunk floor, and application of a yellow exterior paint.
