Scott Long wanted a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with a Shaker, Cobra Jet engine and manual transmission since he was in high school. Today he is a proud owner of a beautifully restored former drag car known as the “Side Winder” back in the day. It is also 1 of 10 Mustangs built in 1969 according to the Marti Report.
But this is not just a R-code 1969 Mustang Mach 1, this is a 428 Super Cobra Jet as it is paired with a close ratio 4-speed and 4.30 geared rear end (W-code). When the engine was rebuilt a little over 10 years ago, it was stroked out to 462 cubes and is estimated at 500 horsepower and pretty much the same amount of torque.
Make sure you watch the video until the end as Scott steps on that Mustang real hard.
