This is probably one of the last of the 2022MY deliveries. I ordered the car back in March 2022, built in October and it was sitting for almost 3 months waiting to get shipped to the dealer.

Finally got the car yesterday and it has honestly exceeded all my expectations!
The paint, panel gaps and overall build quality seem to be very good. The only imperfections are to the plastic front lip and driver seat bottom when someone got in it i guess.

I have been a Mustang fan since I was a kid, the 69 Mach 1 was always a favorite design for me. I couldn’t get a GT when I was in college and then when i could buy one - the interior and overall quality was awful. The S550 gen that came out in 2015 was my favorite and I was close to buying a GT350 many times but never worked out.

This Mach 1 was ordered with almost every option I could check including car cover and red brakes lol

The Good:
- Styling is pretty much perfect in my eyes - its a cool Mustang with my dream color.
- The exhaust sound of the V8 is just AMAZING, better than I could imagine.
- The 6speed Tremec is a joy to shift.
- Recaro seats are very comfortable and supportive.
- Interior quality overall is good and the B&O stereo system i got is great.
- Brembo brakes are very responsive with immediate bite.
- Mag ride makes this car like a Cadillac, by far the most comfortable car I have. You hardly feel any bumps.

Not so good:
- Tramlining is very bad so you need to hold steering wheel at all times.
- Seating position is too high
- Definitely a big car, my kids fit well in the back at least
- Hood needs to be propped up
- Steering wheel is not a great design - way too many buttons and wish it was a bit thicker.

Overall this car presents incredible value for what you get. It’s definitely more of a GT car than a true sports car but its hard to beat the Mustang formula.

If you want a thicker steering wheel, then I can recommend Beith Performance wheels:

I'm a Dodge Challenger owner, and I've said this before but I'll say it one more time, the only car that could tempt me away is the Mach 1. And yours is an absolute beauty.

What's your N xxxx number? Looks great. Most the items you dislike can be fixed with aftermarket parts.

Joking aside, who doesn’t love the Challenger?

I certainly love my 2016 SRT no regrets whatsoever. But if I was to buy a mustang, it would be the Mach 1 with the 6-speed tremec transmission I drove several getrag transmissions and thought it was a poor quality unit.
