I acquired the 69 Coupe as an almost bare shell in 2001. Due to life, 4 moves, & a business venture all getting in the way it was not until 2011 when I started working on the Coupe steadily. I have since replaced all the sheet metal that needed replacing, re-wired the car, having the rear re-built, replacing the rear leaf springs, re-built the complete f/e, replacing the steering box, adding a hydraulic clutch system, adding power disc brakes, rebuilding the rear drum brakes, adding a metal trunk divider, & added Fat Mat sound deadener to the inside floor, quarter panels, inside the doors, & firewall, added a center mount parking brake from a 1987 Mustang, & added intermittent wipers.
This is my Mach 1 , bought this car in 2001 . It was Meadow Lark Yellow , I didn't care for it . Named it Molly and changed the color to Jade green. Since 2001, I have rebuilt engine 30 over , new cam , intake and carb.
New carpet , dash bezels, reworked clock , restored steel,wheel , rebuilt FMX tranny with shift kit , new wheel and tires.
Gave it to my wife as a wedding gift but I don't let her drive it (:>}
Took it on a 2000 mile road rally last year and will be doing again this yr 2018!in PA .
These cars have 4 wheels and an engine , they are meant to drive .
