Orig­i­nally in­tro­duced by Ford in ’68 as a pack­age for the ’69 model year, the Mach 1 ti­tle adorned per­for­mance-ori­ented Mus­tang of­fer­ings un­til the orig­i­nal re­tire­ment of the moniker in 1978. The MPC ’73 Mus­tang Cus­tomiz­ing Kit lets you build your own as a stock Mach 1, into a street ma­chine of the era, or even as a Grand-am racer. Choose from two tyre op­tions, three in­take sys­tems, and a full roll cage, all ready to whack in along­side the op­tional win­dow lou­vres and hood scoop. But, most im­por­tant, you’re able to se­lect be­tween two com­plete en­gines — a stock 5.7-litre 351 Cleve­land and the cov­eted 429ci (7.0-litre). This model has been given the full retro deluxe treat­ment too, with the vintage pack­ag­ing, ex­panded de­cal graph­ics, and a bonus mini box. You don’t need to be a whizz to as­sem­ble it, although it pays to have a steady hand, as paint­ing and ce­ment­ing are re­quired.
