There is a reason no one buys Mach1s after '70. They look awful.
Model it after 69 and then you'll have yourself a 350 situation.

I thought i'd share this rendering i did of a 19MY Mach 1
Not bad but where it says Mustang down by the rocker panel that is where the MACH 1 should be and if it looks good up where you have the Mach 1 emblem you can have the MUSTANG script where the 70 and 73 had it. I always preferred the 73 Mach 1 side stripe over the 69-70 lower grille.

The Shaker doesn't actually work on the Coyote engine so can you try another image without the Shaker and instead use the 71-73 Ram-Air hood?

In case you missed it, the OP has created 3 versions.......version 2 (below) matches closer to what you want :)

Well, first off, this is nothing like the early 70's models. I liked those with the twin NACA ducts on the hood. But Ford needs to step it up on weight loss instead of gain, make advertised power on 91 octane like the rest of the world, and brighten the lifeless, dull LED tru-bar DRL's... Carbon Fibre has been around a long time and darn cheap these days, considering it has been used on a handful of cars in the last 15 years, including the 2006 C6 Z06.... Smaller, lighter 18" wheels improve mpg's due to less length per revolution, shorter stopping distances and quicker acceleration... Non-run flats are better for all of the previous mentioned things and handling, weigh 3-6 lbs less per tire too.

There's a reason the performance pack GT's need 3.73 gears to keep even with a base GT: It's to make up for the added weight and height of 20" wheels/tires vs 18's, and the bigger, heavy, brakes.

This would be a good one to replicate the 70's Machs that I loved. Except the ricer rear wing on this would have to go. The naca ducts are great and are seems on the mustang in the last Transformers movie, with a S550 police car that will, as I've been told, be the basis of the next Mach1... in the newer 2018 body. The transformer police mustang S550 was an exact 1701-1973 MACH 1 for the future. That's the car I want. But with a 755 hp GT500 coming, and at 3700 lbs, totally street-loaded, it'll destroy the semi 1/4 mi track only, Dodge Demon. Dodge screwed that up, because it's not on a new Dart.

I guess I'm just tired of driving a Lincoln LS sized 4 door mustang... One that's 1100 lbs more than my old trusty 89' LX 5.0 sedan and nearly twice the length.

Oh, and my relative at FMC says the Trinity 5.8 from the 13-14' GT500 is still laying around the shops and in Inventory, a lot of them, he said to me with a wink, over the holidays. Hmmmm :)...

We need a nice "Plumb Crazy" kind of purple and a true Highland Green for a Bullitt.

PP has 19' wheels, and the 3.73s are for road tracks.

Instead of the '71/'73 NACA twin scooped hood, how about a variation based on the '69/'70 Shelby hood instead. As much as I'd like a shaker, I just don't think it works in the S550. You would need the 5 NACA scoops, but it would be nice. Three forward facing scoops could work just fine. As far as stripes, I'm leaning towards the '73 Mach style stripe.

Gotta have replacements for the <'15 gt500s.

If they went with 5.8, it won't be the same block.
