It's only been sitting since 1980. .
Many believe the Ford Mustang Mach 1 to be the definitive Mustang. More specifically, that would be the 1969 model year, the Holy Grail of Mustangs for countless fans. Finding an all-original or fully restored one isn’t extremely hard to do, but you’ll need to have some deep pockets first. In typical Roadkill fashion, it wouldn’t be any fun to simply to have something drivable. A state of near rot is more like it, and fortunately in this latest episode the guys stumbled upon an original Mach 1 in a Colorado junk yard.
Really, it was just parked right there for the taking. Being on Freiburger’s bucket list of cars to own, it was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up (it was also in his budget). And so the goal began to get this old and abused Mach 1 roadworthy again.
As Finnegan rightly said, Colorado has never been good to Roadkill. Something has always gone wrong there, and they always previously left the state car-less. But this time is different. It’s a Mustang Mach 1. It can’t just be left in its current situation consisting of no hope and all the time in the world to just rot away (it's been sitting there since 1980). This episode lasts a full 37 minutes but you ought to stick around. We think you’ll dig it.
