With a fourth film in the works and a potential series on the way, there’s no denying the success of the John Wick movies. Known both for their impeccable styling and high-octane action, the series began with a story surrounding a retired hitman, the killing of his dog, and his especially spectacular car. That car was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 — and now it’s getting a production run courtesy of Classic Recreations.
For the first time ever, Ford has officially-licensed the 1969/70 model years of this particularly potent pony car to Classic Restorations. And in spectacular fashion, they’re creating a series of turnkey continuation examples of this car — using genuine original bodies or recreations, depending on the customer’s request — but with some noteworthy upgrades. Fittingly dubbed the ‘Hitman,’ this revival is available with up to 1,000 horsepower, courtesy of a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 32 valve crate engine with a BOSS 302 intake, and includes modern chassis and drivetrain tech, cutting-edge EFI and engine management systems, and a slew of custom options — making each one unique. But this exceptional pony car revival comes at the high starting price of $169,000.
