All Mach 1s made were fastbacks. However, in the spring of 1971 Ford put a Mach 1 grill, urethane bumper, NASA scoop hood, and Boss 351 "hockey" stripes on some hardtop cars and called it the Sport Coupe to boost sales. Your car might be one of these special editions. Either that or someone fixed the car to look sportier.

Take the vin number and door tag and decode it.
Yep. The Mach VIN is 1F05H or something similar as long as the 05 is there. But if it's a coupe it aint a mach one, plain and simple. You could get the stripes and bumpers and everything else, so it was possible to order a coupe that had everything but the Mach1 lettering.

5.0 is right as long as the 05 is there, you have a mach 1, check the vin #. dashboard and engine compartment. the vin# should be there

Ford never made a fastback after 1968, in 1969 on they were all sports roofs...:gringreen

my Vin is 1F02H177
and my car says Mach 1 you cna look at my profile to see a picture of it!
Nice lookin' Sportsroof you got there babakkanoosh. It's like 5.0 in a 66 said, if your cars 3rd and 4th digits in the VIN are not 05, then your car is a Sportsroof that has Mach 1 decals on it. You can install all the Mach 1 upgrades and have the next best thing!

Take a look at the grills in the photo I've attached and you'll see the difference.

Heres a coupe with the mach1 stripes 1973, FORD, MUSTANG

So are you telling me a fastback is a (coup,hardtop,Grand'e)?I know a SportsRoof and Mach1 has the same body style with the bigger rear window like mine(it's a Mach1)I have always called mine a Fastback.Maby 1964-1968 and 1971-1973 are named differently.The big rear window and the little rear window cars.
