So i just got a hold of my new project. Its a 69 mach 1. im new to this form and new to mustangs. Im thinkin about just rebuilding the 351w thats currenty in it now. does anyone have any ideas??? below are also some pics. this was my dads car when he was a teenager and he was the second owner. When rebuilding the engine should i keep everything stock, or if i upgrade the cam ect, devalue the car? I was hoping for what do you guys think?

All originals are typically worth more than modded cars, especially to collectors. I would definitely keep the original motor and just build it out properly.
An exciting project to be sure, especially since it has been in the family for so long. Good luck and keep us in the loop on the progress.
1988 LX 5.0, 1st Mustang I had to have!
1992 LX 5.0, all silver beauty
1994 Cobra...man I miss that car, last of the 5.0's for many years
Current 2010 GT500, wow things have changed, and overall for the good!
I agree with everyone here. That is a unique color and since it is family influenced I would restore it to stock. My 69 was already a mutt so I'm redoing most of it anyways. Great looking project and please keep us updated with plenty of pictures. We like pictures on this website. 8)
WOW!! Would love to have one of those next to mine in the garage

So I got the Mach 1 running for the most part. I found out today that he radiator has a hole in it. So I brought a new one today. Also replaced the starter, alternator, battery, intake, carb, rewired the ingition switch and coil. Replaced the gas tank, had a couple holes in it. Now just a bunch of small things. I just want to get it to the point where I can drive it for a while and have fun with it. I noticed that my alt gauge is stuck in the middle and doesn't move. The fuel gauge isint reading eaither. But anyways here's a quick video of it running. The exhaust has a hole so it's a little smokey. Lol
