Mt Everest is disguise. This “R” Code (Shaker Hood Scoop) Mach 1,with its 4 speed manual transmission, and 3.50 axle ratio, plus its 4 bbl 428 big block engine is the Mt Everest of muscle cars. It just needs to rediscovered, which in this case will take some serious hard work. When properly restored, the achievement will be worth the effort. Easily worth $37,000 to $43,000 when restored. Painted back to its original Acapulco Blue paint with Blackout Hood treatment, it will as magnificent as Everest is tall. Talk about fun to drive. The close ration 4 speed top loader transmission plus competition suspension will handle the extra horses that the 428 Cobra Jet engine delivers. White Clarion Knit/Vinyl High Back Bucket Seats, Sport Deck Rear Seat, Power Front Disk Brakes, Interior Décor Group, and AM/FM Radio make this Mach 1 as beautiful inside as it will be on the outside. You might want to add disk brakes all around instead of just in the front, if you are going to race the car.
The original 428 engine and 4 speed toploader transmission are missing but we have both available on request. There is rust work needed around the rear quarters and floor pans to make this car a show stopper, but the hood and front fenders look good, as does the deck lid Plan on the normal interior redo, engine and transmission rebuild, etc.. The car has the original quarter panels. Doors and fenders also look original.
Original seats come with the car but will need recovering. Has the Rim Blow steering wheel [good for a core]. Trimmed out and restored, this Acapulco Blue Mach 1 would be Mt Everest for everyone to envy.
