MAKE MINE A MACH 1
Jerry Dittmann of Howard, PA wanted a new Shelby GT350. He had been looking for one ever since Ford reintroduced that trim level on a Mustang. But, as fate would have it, his next door neighbor bought the exact car he had been pining for. Jerry faced a decision, keep up with the Joneses or dare to be different.
With his Shelby dreams dashed he learned that Ford was bringing back the Mach 1 for 2021. He said, “I’m in!” He ordered a 2021 Mach 1 in Velocity Blue from Confer Ford in Bellefonte, PA and took delivery in March.
For those that don’t know, the Mach 1 package was introduced by Ford for the 1969 model year and began to overtake the Shelby GT 500 as the top dog in the Mustang line. It was issued up until 1978 with brief returns in 2003-04. For 2021 the Mustang Mach 1 features a 5.0 Liter V8, 6-speed manual transmission, limited slip rear differential, optional cloth Recaro Seats and a whole host of track-oriented performance goodies.
Jerry says he’s very pleased with the way things turned out Thank so for sharing your ride’s story!
