Photos: Meet The Insane ’69 Mach Forty Mustang
This spectacular car is like none you’ve ever seen. That’s why you gotta love the SEMA show, just when you thought you’ve seen at all, somebody else is topping that.
Meet the Mach Forty. This car wants to resemble a ’69 Mach 1 Mustang while rocking a GT40 power train. What you see here is a build that took three years to complete. With the look of a classic Mach 1 he wanted something others didn’t have. Luckily the drive train for the GT40 was made for the ’05-06 Ford GT.
This Mach Forty was designed to be low with a GT40-like stance, wheel wells reminiscent of a modern ‘Stang. It was widened a whole four inches total. The ’69 Mustang Mach 1 used for this donated the roof, door frames, and doors and installed back onto the complete project. All brand new parts custom made and formed by hand are the tail section, quarter panels, front fender, hood, floor structures, and full peripheral frame. Looking at the roof line, you’ll notice that it’s a bit shorter than a normal ‘Stang. The roof sits two inches lower giving the windshield wipers a hiding place under the line of the hood. While both the windshield and back glass are factory, the louver side windows were custom made.
Now getting to the heart of things. What powers this ’69 comes from a 2006 Ford GT 5.4-liter engine in the rear of course. If that isn’t enough power, connected to that iss a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger. It runs on Flex fuel thanks to a Mo Tec engine control unit. More features include traction control, custom billet fuel rails, and two Lambo throttle bodies for launch control.
How about adjusting your horsepower at the flywheel? With the Adjustable Horse power dial you can adjust your hp 600 – 850 hp. The front and rear suspension are from a C6 Corvette with custom billet control arms (rear) and coil over shocks (front and rear).
What do you think of this one of a kind Mach Forty?
