Number 31 Of 52 1969 AMX Super Stock race cars



Quote:
It’s name originated from the code name given to the car when it was in it’s experimental stages, “American Motors eXperimental”, in 1969 the Super Stock was introduced to the public. This car was not street legal, and it’s sole intention was to hit the quarter mile. There were 52 of them built, this one that is listed on eBay is #31 of the 52, and is well documented.

The car was built to perform, with a 390 ci engine sporting an Edelbrock STR-11 cross ram intake with a pair of Holley carbs, the 12.3:1 compression was enough to give the engine about 420 hp, as rated by the NHRA, despite the puny 340 hp that American Motors gave it. They were known to fudge a little on numbers back then. The heads on this car are modified by Crane, and a set of Doug Thorley headers with 1-7/8″ primaries are bolted up, simply known as Doug’s Headers back in the day.

The Hurst shifter with heavy duty shifter rods was moved up and back towards the driver, for those high 10-second runs, reaching about 128 mph in the process . The rear wheel wells were opened up on these cars to accommodate the 10″ drag slicks that they ran on these cars.

The Devil is in the details . . .

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 390-4V, 4-Speed



DESCRIPTION

- Frame-off restoration
- Matching numbers
- Power steering and brakes
- 4-speed transmission

http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_de...=DA0912-135573

This is a rare car. Approx. 3800 1969 Mach 1s (total production = 71,000+) had the 390 S code engine in them with a wide ratio 4 speed (approx 800 had the close ratio 4 speed). It is the rarest of the '69 Mach 1s (engine wise) and the last year for the 390-4V.

Plus it has the optional Shaker Hood, a rare option on 351 and 390 Mach 1s. It is interesting to note that the difference between the 390 S code ($99.74) and the 428 Q code ($224.12) for the '69 Mach 1 was $124.38. The cost of the Shaker Hood for the 390 was $133.00. That's why a Shaker Hood is rare on a 390 Mach 1.

Unfortunatley it also has front and rear spoilers and Magnum 500 wheels, all not available as factory options on the 1969 Mach 1. This owner should have used the correct Mach 1 Chrome Styled Steel Wheels and no spoilers - the car would be more correct and more valuable.

The idea is to pose a question and see the responses. Once the question has been correctly answered, time for a another question.

So here is the first question:

What muscle car(s), when delivered to the dealer, came with factory installed tubular headers?
I'm guessing quite a few!! I personally love the 1969 Z-28's. My car in the garage, has long tube, cast iron headers. Are You guessing what it is? Hello to the community. I just found this website. Thanks Mike.

Only one car came from the factory with tubular headers; 1965 Shelby GT350 Mustang. They were an option on the 1967 and 1968 Z/28 Camaro, but they were packed in the trunk - not actually installed by the factory. The dealership installed them.

Cast iron or cast aluminum headers aren't tubular headers which are made out of steel:
