I just bought my second mustang GT last friday ( my brother crashed my 2000 new edge GT :( at least i can say at 15 i have purchased 2 mustangs already :D). I was looking at mach 1s alot ever since the accident however they are either a really good price but need work, or they are super expensive and practically brand new. I eventually settled on a 2006 Mustang GT with 108k miles. The car is very nice and has long tubes, offroad x pipe, and a pypes cat back as well as a jlt CAI and a hurst short throw. Im still very into the mach 1 and i am thinking about turning this 06 GT into a mach 1 tribute car. However i would base it off the 1969 mach 1 with the non shaker scoop because im not about to pay 800 dollars for a shaker scoop. I was wondering what yall would think of this idea, obv the purist out there are going to be salty as always but i would not consider it a clone or stolen valor because they never made them for the s197 generation. let me know what yall think and if you guys have any ideas! My crashed newedge and s197 down below

Cervinnis sells everything you need to convert it to a Mach 1. Not my car btw, but pictures that were on another thread. I've purchased numerous parts from them, they all fit with no extra work required.


The rear spoiler on that vehicle is a reproduction of the 69/70 part.

Another alternative is the Boss 429 look. Here's a kit with all the pieces to get that look. Love the giant hood scoop.

Interesting, I will look into it, however I am kinda balling on a budget so I don't know if I have the money to get a hood painted

I trying to come to a decision hoodwise on mine as well. Mine is nice, but it has some hail dents that need some PDR to work out. I've found a Cervinni's hood I like, already painted. Trouble is the wrong color. So which is more expensive, PDR or getting that hood painted to match? Hmmmmmm.....


The front spoiler, and the scoops on the back all are Cervinnis and fit great. Also the color match is perfect. Last pic is what it looked like when I bought it.

I put all new lightning on it this past weekend. Chrome with smoke lenses, sequential LED tail lights, LED third brake light, smoked corners. Took soome pictures, but they didn't turn out to my liking. Have to try again this weekend.

I was thinking of maybe purchasing a black hood scoop and doing the mach 1 vinyl from https://rockymountaingraphics.com/product/05-09-mustang-mach-1-style-hood-blackout/

Well, I found just the hood scoop by itself, also from Cervinnis. I'm thinking if I keep my current hood and get the dents PDRed, I may replace the current hood scoop with one of these. Very large aggressive scoop. The one on my car now is a Roush part. It's nice, but I like the one I linked below better.

It comes with a template for fitting it to the hood and drilling the required six holes.

What's a newedge? Don't see any pics you posted except two Mustangs.

Never mind, reread your post. That 2000 is a Newedge. Never heard of them.

There is also this hood available. All it needs is a paint job to get color matched. Looks like it's the last of it's kind. I was thinking on it, but just can't seem to pull the plug. Looks too much like a Dodge Charger hood set up, with the exception of the two side vents, which are 2013/14 Mustang parts. I'm still thinking about it though. Need to talk with the body shop half a mile from me, see which they would rather do, PDR my existing hood or paint this and install it for me.
