What Is the Shadow Mustang?

The Mach 1, which was introduced as a performance-oriented option package for the Ford Mustang in 1969, was available through the 1978 model year and returned in 2003 and 2004. In 1976, Ford released a special-edition Mustang II Mach 1 known as “The Shadow” for its black exterior paint and black grille. Buyers also had the choice of a black or bright red interior.

The Shadow was equipped with a 2.8L V-6 engine. Other standard features included a brushed aluminum instrument panel applique, black window molding and windshield wiper arms, and a competition suspension. Other standard features that were included with all Mustang II models from that year were low-back bucket seats with all-vinyl trim, cut-pile carpeting, front disc brakes, and rack and pinion steering. The Shadow was a “one and done” Mustang that was not offered prior to or after 1976.
