A Dream Come True: Owning a 428 SCJ Mustang Mach 1

The 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback is a true American muscle car classic, renowned for its sleek, sporty design. But when outfitted with the performance oriented Mach 1 package and powered by the bold 428 Super Cobra Jet engine paired with a heavy-duty 4-speed, it becomes the ultimate dream machine for many Mustang enthusiasts.

Brent Casiglio’s R-code 1969 Ford Mustang

A former U.S. Marine and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black belt holder, Brent Casiglio is also into classic muscle cars. At the young age of 15, he laid eyes on a 1969 Mustang Fastback for the first time, and it was a moment of love at first sight. From that day on, the Ford Mustang became his dream car. A goal he relentlessly pursued for 35 long years.
