Hello, I'm new to this site. Although I've loved Mustangs all my life, I still don't know many details about them. Can anyone explain to me the differences between a normal Mustang and a Mach 1? Why do some 69 - 70 cars have dual front lights while others have an air intake that looks like branches?

Easiest quick glance is the '69 has 4 headlights, '70 has two. '69 has vents on the upper rear fender just past the door. Mach 1's had appearance options - rocker panels with Mach1, some had shaker hood scoops, dash was woodgrain applique, more I can't remember.

69 was also the last year for the ignition in the dash, in 70 it was on the steering column.

In 69 the base motor in a Mach 1 was the H code 2 barrel 351 windsor. It was also the only Mach to have single exhaust standard, dual was optional.


In 1970 windsor and cleveland motors were intermixed in the 351 cars, H and M codes. This was done as the windsors were being phased out. and depended on supply for that day.

1. the headlight buckets/grill
2. taillights/taillight panel
3. 69' had no marker lights
4. 69' had quarter panel scoops
