RealRides of WNY - 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I

Yes, this 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I (or, is it Mach 1? Ford uses both — the Roman numeral in its brochures, but the Arabic 1 on the front fender decal) is wearing a set of whitewalls. Today’s purists might recoil in horror, but it really wasn’t all that unusual back in the day — looking at the brochure, they were actually standard equipment on Mach I’s equipped with a 351 V-8 like this one. That engine means that the shaker hood scoop may or may not be functional — the working scoop was standard with the 428 V-8, and optional with the other engine choices. Not sure about that hood-mounted tachometer; it’s possibly an aftermarket item. Saw this car last week in Niagara Falls, Ontario at the weekly Cruising On the Q car show.
