Does a VIN # indicate a Mach 1?

We received a viewer email and thought it would make for a great blog post.

Question:  I’m kinda new to the world of mustang ownership. I have always loved the 69 Mach 1.  Here is my question:  is there any way to tell a Mach from a regular Fastback by the vin#?

Answer:  Yes, there is a way to tell a 1969 Mach 1 from the VIN#.   The VIN would begin with “905”.  A regular Fastback VIN would begin with a “902”.  “05” is Mach 1 and “02” is Fastback.

Mustang cheers to you!
