2003 Mach 1 Mustang

The new 2003 Mach 1 Mustang was born out of the passion of Mustang enthusiasts across America.

The most visually arresting design cue on the 2003 Mach 1 is the “shaker” scoop. The ram air scoop channels fresh air to the intake, increasing the breathing for improved power and torque. The scoop and the center powerdome hood are finished in low-gloss black.

The C-pillars feature a unique trim appliqué that gives the roofline a subtle throwback appearance. To enhance the low-to-the-ground appearance, the car features another classic Mach 1 trait, an air dam extension, painted low-gloss black. A low-gloss black stripe runs the length of the side just above the rocker moldings.

Sitting inside a Mach 1 is a blast from the past. The seats have increased lateral support and are trimmed in one-of-a-kind “comfort weave” black leather that is reminiscent to the material that was unique to the original Mach 1.

The center stack and shifter bezel are painted in a gray accent finish and highlighted by an aluminum shift boot ring and aluminum shifter ball. The accelerator, brake, clutch and dead pedals are polished aluminum. The gray-backed instrument cluster features unique retro-look dials. Mach 1 comes standard with the Mach 460 six-disc in-dash CD changer audio system.

Mach 1 is powered by a 4.6-liter, 32-valve, dual-overhead-cam V-8. The engine makes use of specially calibrated cams, a modified upper intake to accommodate the ram-air system, a forged crank (cast crank in automatic transmission application) and performance exhaust manifolds to produce more than 300 horsepower.

The vehicle is lowered one-half of an inch and is equipped with a firmer suspension for improved handling. The handling package includes new front and rear coil springs with adapted load and rate, Tokico struts and shocks, unique stabilizer bars front and rear and added frame rail connectors to stiffen the body.

Thirteen-inch front rotors and performance calipers provide excellent stopping capability. The calipers have a black-anodized finish and are visible through 17-inch Magnum 500 wheel spokes. Mach 1 comes standard with anti-lock brakes and traction control.

In 1969, the Mach 1 was one of three new Mustang models. It featured fastback body, an aggressively raked air dam, rear spoiler, “comfort-weave” leather-trimmed seats and the now-famous “shaker hood scoop” mounted directly onto the carburetor and fitted through an opening in the hood.
