BF Auction: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 SCJ

Bid to: $67,000View Result

If you are a fan of a Mustang fan, this find should get your blood pumping! This 1969 Mustang Mach 1 is a genuine 428 Super Cobra Jet equipped car. It was restored in 2005, but all the parts were either rebuilt or replaced with genuine new old stock items to ensure the car retained what makes it so special. The seller is just its second owner, and while they have enjoyed it, they’ve decided it’s time to thin out their collection, so they have listed it here as a Barn Finds Auction. If you’d love to be the next owner of this rare Mustang, be sure to cast your high bid.

The 1969 Mach 1 was offered with several engines, but the 428 was the largest and most powerful option. It was offered in two performance levels: the Cobra Jet and the Super Cobra Jet. When optioning your Mach 1 with the 428, you needed to check the Drag Pack option to get the Super Cobra Jet engine. The option included the 4.30 Traction-Lok axle, an oil cooler, heavy-duty crankshaft and connecting rods, and improved engine balancing. If you planned on going to the track regularly, this was the option to get! The seller has provided photos of the original build sheet and the Marti Report to verify that this is a real-deal Super Cobra Jet.

All the changes made to the 428 to build the SCJ did little to increase performance. Instead, the changes were intended to improve longevity. With 335 horsepower and 440 ft-lbs of torque, this engine is no slouch in standard form, so adding heavy-duty components just ensured you could go drag racing at the track and then drive the car home at the end of the day. The engine oil cooler, which is mounted right in front of the radiator, is the easiest to spot external change. Its position required relocating one of the horns and made A/C a no go. Given the Drag Pack components’ importance, the seller took lots of photos of the engine and underside, so be sure to study them closely.

The white interior is striking when paired with the Candy Apple Red paint. The White Clarion knit seat upholstery shows some minor discoloration, but there aren’t any signs of damage or wear. The carpets could use some cleaning, and there are some minor flaws on the dash, but overall, it looks great. Clearly, this was a high-quality restoration!

If you want a beautiful turn-key classic with some serious power, this Mach 1 might fit the bill! It sounds great in the seller’s videos, which you can view below. Whether it’s sitting in your garage or you’re behind the wheel, this one will surely get your blood pumping. If you have any questions for the seller, please leave them in the comments section.

      CraigR, that’s my line. Lol. I wish my daddy had been a rich man… so I could bat my eyes and say Please Daddy can I have that car?
      I only say that cuz I could never afford that beautiful car. I’d look really good in it. I’d have to drive it to Libby, Montara in August for the car show and let my daughter (who is a kicking butt girl) take it on the cruise. Lol Yes, I’m a dreamer.
      It is a beauty. Good luck to all that bid.

        I should have never watched the video, now I want it, bad. Who knows bidding is only at $2600, maybe it can be had at a price mere mortals can afford? Nah, I don’t think so.

    With the imperfections mentioned, it looks like this beauty was actually enjoyed. Given how it’s equipped and the supporting documentation, the reserve must be $100K. Out of my reach but outside of a Shelby or Boss, this is the Mustang to get.

    I just got back from buying lottery tickets.
    Wish I hadn’t sold my 351W Mach 1 in 1973 to buy a 340 Cuda.
    Wish I hadn’t that too.
    Beautiful Mach 1!

    Is the difference between a CJ & SCJ the same as a 429 meaning a solid-lifter cam in the latter???

      Hi flow heads, with 4 bolt holes around each exhaust port. 1.73 adjustable rockers. Cap screw lemans rods. Full float pistons. This is all to the best of my recollection.

      As I remember when I researched mine the crank is a high nodular iron but not forged the rods were 427 lemans with external counter weight also external oil cooler. There was a whole article in Mustang monthly back in the 90’s that told you all the differences.

    This is a stunning SCJ that survived !
    Beautiful. Stunning example.

    Drag Pack option (1969: $155.45) offered 2 rear gear choices, either 3.91:1, or 4.30:1.
    Heavy Duty upgrades in the SCJ were the engine oil cooler, 427 capscrew rods (special “hatchet” counterweight to balance the heavier rods), HD wrist Pins and different flexplate/flywheel.
    Same hydraulic cam and heads because they were very good to begin with. Rockers (non adj), intake, carb, windage tray – and horsepower ratings -between the CJ and SCJ are identical.

    Improvements were made to the automatic trans, the C6, with HD cast iron tailshaft and special R servo.

    I have the 3.91 gearset and have to stay off the highway but the auto tranny gives nothing up to the 4 speed.

    Well written article!

    Oh Man!!! Thats far better than a pace maker for us with low heart rates. Although my 70 AMX works as well for that. I would definitely make room in the garage next to the AMX for it. But that would create one hell of a problem. Which one do I drive tonight? But I think I could live with that problem.
