Description The Mustang Mach 1 - The Mustang was successfully introduced in April 1964 as a sporty 'pony car' to attract younger buyers into Ford products. After a few years of development, Ford saw the need to create performance Mustangs to compete with GM and their release of the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird.Ford introduced the 428 cu in Cobra Jet FE engine in a small group of Mustang GTs and into the 1968 Shelby GT500KR. This was a strong performer and indicated the direction of the 1969 Mustang. However, 'GT' wasn't a name that would initiate images of street screeching performance; hence the introduction of the Mach 1 title.
