Meet Craig and his 1969 Mustang Mach 1. Joining our community back on August 26th, 2006 as our 1731st member, he is the latest in what hopes to be an ever growing list of featured rides – and he owns December. You can discuss this ride here.
Craig has always enjoyed Mustang’s while growing up, especially 1969 Fastbacks, he thinks it’s what a true Muscle car should look like. This happens to be his second ‘Stang, his first was a Wimbeldon White 69′ Fastback that was lost in a battle with a deer…
Now, down to business. This classic Mach 1 and it’s 351 Cleveland engine is mostly stock for now and is currrently undergoing a complete restoration. Craig hope’s to have the car re-finished soon for the nice summer cruise nights to come next year. Mostly stock though doesn’t mean completely stock, this is a Modded Mustang afterall.

- Weiand Stealth Intake Manifold
- MSD 6AL and Pro Billet Distributor

Alittle More About Craig
Craig was born, raised and still currently living Ada. Oklahoma. He works for Chickasaw Nation as a pilot, so most of his time he is flying to make a living to support his family and keep doing work to his pride and joy. When he is not wrenching away at his ’69 Mach he is spending it with his family. Craig is happily married and has a little girl to seal the deal. Craig enjoys the outdoors with his family and going to the track and a few car shows.
Craig hopes to hold onto this car for his little girl when it’s her time to tear up the roads and hopes that it’ll remain in the family forever. He would also like to thank his wife for letting him have his dream car… twice, and has put up with his automobile love and passion and the time and effort that has gone into it. Congrats Craig.
Craig’s advice for his fellow Mustang enthusiasts is, “If your gonna modify a classic, keep it tasteful and make it so it can be taken back to it’s orginal state.”
