1969 Ford Mustang Sportsroof/ Fastback Q code 428 Mach 1. This beautiful car originally came
with a 428/ C6 automatic trans, AC, Power Steering, and Power Disc Brakes. This car had sat for 15 years in a
garage in pieces before I bought it. I spent many, many hours bringing this car back to life! The original 428 was
just rebuilt, and the C6 was just rebuilt too. I have the receipts for the work done also! The engine was rebuilt
to factory specs, except that I added a mild Comp cam to it. The car runs like a beast! The motor has about 50
miles on it since the car has been finished. The car has a fresh multi stage paint job, and the color is Acapulco
Blue, and the hood black out treatment was painted on, it's not vinyl. Most of the exterior chrome was replaced,
with a few original pieces being polished up. The interior was redone, pretty much top to bottom. The car came from
AZ, so there is NO RUST on the car. The floors look great, torque boxes, inner fenders, and trunk all look great!
The car still has the original sheet metal, with no signs of ever being in an accident! The car has been garage
kept, and taken to a few events. It's not perfect but, its a beautiful car that was loved!
MARTI REPORT: The report indicates that this car is 1 of only 1280 with the 428/ C6 combination. It was a 428 CJ
car with non Ram Air
Engine/ Trans: The original 428 was rebuilt by a shop here in Las Vegas that has been around for 40 years, and has
a warranty. The trans was rebuilt a few months ago also. The engine was bored .030 over, heads were redone, new
comp cam, all new bearings, lifters, and runs great. The crank was a 1U, Heads were C8OE-N heads, the block has the
C on the back, reinforced mains, and I have pictures of these as the engine was assembled. Under the hood are many
new parts like, new water pump, alternator, fuel pump, starter, Edelbrock Carb, radiator, Optima Battery, brake
master cylinder, and tune up stuff. The original Exhaust Manifolds are on the car also, C8OE Factory Headers, those
cost me a pretty penny and they are in great shape with no defects. The car still has the AC heater box, an
compressor but, the other AC items are not on the car, and were removed before I bought the car. The C6 received a
shift kit, and is sealed up nicely. The trans is not original to the car.
Interior/ Exterior: The interior has new carpet, new sound deadener, new seat upholstery, new door panels, new
dash, new headliner, and looks great! The gauges all work on the car, blinkers work, heater/ AC blower motor works.
New weather stripping on the doors, and roof rail too. New end caps for the doors and quarter panels. The windows
roll up and down correctly, doors shut nicely.
The exterior was just repainted to Acapulco Blue, and looks amazing. It was multiple coats of paint and clear coat
with a wet sand and buff to finish the car off. The wheels and tires are brand new, Torque Thrust 2 wheels with BFG
tires. New bumpers, new windshield, new moldings, new antenna, and a few other small new items. Under the car looks
great with new Flowmaster 40 series exhaust, and the car has the correct rear end housing but, the Nodular 3rd
member was not with the car when I bought it. It has 3:23 gears in the rear, and the pinon seal was replaced after
I had the unit inspected.

You know who you are. There's probably a few of you reading; the ones that say, "Why would I spend $27,000 on a new Mazda MX-5 when I could get a used Chevrolet Corvette with more power." Yes, we're talking to you, used car proponents. While it is a fair argument, it's not like used cars don't come with drawbacks of their own, though.
In an attempt to put this new-versus-used argument to bed once and for all, Matt Farah of the The Smoking Tire has picked up a pair of $25,000 cars - a used, but lightly modified, 2003 BMW M3 and a 2013 Ford Fiesta ST. Naturally, there's a comparison.
Farah, as he's wont to do, does get into the nitty gritty of what each car is like to drive, and discusses the merits of used and new-car shopping. But as he rightly points out while testing the M3, "So, it is a good car. But like any used car, it really does depend on the individual car."
For the first time since 1976, Ford of Australia is bringing the assembly of its stonking Ford Performance Vehicle line back in-house to the company's Broadmeadows and Geelong facilities. That's a point of pride for FPV, which builds high-performance versions of the Australian Falcon model like the F6, GS and the heroic GT seen here.
In the video below, we hear FPV employees talking in hushed tones about the important legacy that cars like the GT have for Australian gearheads of all stripes, and how proud they are to say that hand-built machines like this GT R-Spec with its Boss 355 engine are now rolling out of their home base. For our part, we're just dying to drive this version of the Coyote V8; the engine is rocking a "Miami" supercharger from Harrop and makes some 450 horsepower.
Continue on below for the video, or you can check out some images of the new FPV at the facility, as well as a gallery of the GT R-Spec car.
If there's one thing you can count on, it's that the renewed rivalry between the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro will never, ever cease. For every version of Ford's pony car, there's an equally potent Chevrolet. And so with the debut of the Camaro Z/28 earlier this year, Ford has responded with a track-focused 'Stang of its own, resurrecting the Shelby GT350 name.
It looks to be a fine piece of work, this Mustang, with power coming from a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V8 that will produce "more than 500 horsepower" and "above 400" pound-feet of torque. That grunt runs to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, and a Torsen limited-slip differential keeps everything in line.
But that's hardly the most impressive piece of the GT350 puzzle. Ford has increased the Mustang GT's chassis stiffness for duty here in the Shelby, and the coupe employs MagneRide damping which automatically adjusts based on road conditions and driver inputs. It's a first both for the Blue Oval and for the segment. And speaking of firsts, the GT350 uses a flat-plane crankshaft - something Ford has never included in a production V8 before.
