The Mach 1 was not built for racing but became an icon due to the racy styling features and the awesome name. As per the rumors, Ford would revive the Mach 1 name for its upcoming electric SUV, a vehicle about as far removed from a vintage Mustang as one could get.
Classic Recreations would build the Mach 1 and the Boss models using the original Mustang bodies, or entirely new bodies licensed officially by Ford. As the cars have the approval of Ford, Classic Recreations prefers to call them “continuation cars” rather than replicas.
The Boss 429 would receive a bespoke 429-cubic-inch engine with some modern upgrades such as the electronic fuel injection. The Boss 302 would be offered with the same “Coyote” V8 that is used in the current-generation Mustang GT or a 363-ci stroker V8 based on an original 302 block. The Mach 1 would be available with any engine in Classic Recreations’ catalog, including the turbocharged Ford EcoBoost engines.
The pricing has not yet been revealed but, given the fact that Classic Recreations’ “least-expensive Shelby Mustang” begins at 149,000 dollars, putting a new Mach 1 or Boss in one’s driveway would not probably come cheap. But Classic Recreations points out that the owners of the original cars often are afraid of driving them, for fear of ruining their investments. These new versions would have the similar look and feel as the originals but without the pricey pedigree. Classic Recreations would unveil the first finished Boss 429 at SEMA 2018 in Las Vegas, with the Mach 1 and Boss 302 arriving sometime after that.
