    This 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet is probably one of the best-looking Mustangs ever!

    They really got the styling spot on with the 69 Mach1, and this colour scheme just pops, showing the lines of the car perfectly.

    This particular car has the highly desirable monstrous 428ci (7.0 liter) V8, with manual 4-speed close ratio gearbox, "Traction-Lok" differential, and power front disc brakes.

    The 428 (typical of American engines of the day) didn't make huge horsepower, only 335bhp (250kW), but the 440 lb-ft of torque compensated pretty well for that.

    The Mach 1 performance package in this generation of Mustang (the first) ran only two years - 1969-1970. 72,458 were built.
