The one that got away? Quite possibly. This 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1, which sold for $39,000 in January of 2018, was delivered new in October 1969 to Crater Lake Motors of Medford, Oregon. The selling dealer acquired the car and reported that the original owner ordered it with a 351ci V8, 4-speed manual transmission, Traction-Lok differential, shaker hood scoop, power front disc brakes, AM radio, power steering, and a tachometer.

The second owner commissioned an engine rebuild that included an overbore, new pistons, low-lift cam, reground crank, new valves and valve springs, new timing chain, and more as detailed below. Updates to the brakes and suspension were also added at this time along with a new clutch. This Mach 1 was offered with its original window sticker and dealer invoice, a Marti report, and a clean California title.  Read more.
