Hi, longtime browser of this site; Thought I'd actually participate. I've been hard at work on my '72, still a work in process. I've had this car since '86, and must enjoy working on it more than I do driving it. Hopefully I get to a stopping point this summer so I can wash it and drive it. Just joined, so I have to figure out how to get pics on here. The car was born 6C yellow born 8/19/71, so it's an early build. It's a plain ol' fastback, now painted black Ditzler Deltron with a '73 style Mach stripe in gold, outlined by red-all painted on. Resisted the temptation to put a Mach hood on it, it looks pretty good flat. Kept the plain vinyl ginger interior, but added full console and tilt wheel. It currently wears 41/42 series 15"Cragar aluminum rims (think Weld Dragstars, with a more angular outer rim). The car was a Bondo-bucket, now it stands tall with the bodywork done about 8 years ago. Like I said work in process. The 408 dyno-ed at 575 hp last year and about the same torque, much to the surprise of the Chevy guy that ran the dyno. Converted to E-85 as well. Got a 4R70W stand-alone by Performance Automatics in there as well. Going to put my 69-70 rear axle housing into it so the rear wheels have a similar looking offset as the fronts. Still have a lot to do, but am getting closer.

Hello all,
 
Nice to join this great forum.
 
I just recently bought a 1972 Mach 1 and although I am not new to the American Muscle car scene, this is my very first Mustang.
Previously owned vehicles were mainly Pontiacs and now starting to learn Ford vehicles.
The 71 - 73 Mach 1 are one of my favorite looking muscle cars (I really love the factory available striping, black hood option & spoilers).
The 72 Mach 1, I bought as an H code vehicle and later to found out it has a 4V Cleveland with a C6.
It is in somewhat rough conditions, but very good drivable and will be fixed where needed.
(Currently the C6 is being repaired (morning sickness), new Torq Thrust wheels and get the 71/72 side striping.)



Anyway, I already learned a lot from this site and all the available info and pictures sure did help getting acquainted with the Mustang.
 
Thanks.

Hi All! I've been lurking and reading for a month or so, since I bought my 72 project. I'm planning a resto-mod driver, not into car shows or garage Queens. Body is pretty straight and solid. Cowl is currently being re-built by deleting the RH vent and re-surfacing with some salvage material. Plan on going with a classic air or similar anyway. Floor pans were shot and have finished installing new ones. 

I'm slowly sourcing missing parts and plan on bring the beast back to life.  I've tinkered with cars my whole life (53 yrs) so this is not my first rodeo but I still have a lot to learn.

PO had the car down to bare metal and sprayed primer on exterior. Original 351 was missing and PO sourced a 429 D0VE-c from a 70 LTD. Plan on a tear-down soon to see where I need to go with that.

Greetings!  I am excited to introduce myself to this community.  My 1971 Mach 1 is being delivered on Thursday and the restoration fun times will commence.  I plan plenty of pics to follow and relying on this community for information and support.

I am no stranger to cars, I had a '69 Mach 1 at one point but had to sell her to pay for the rest of my college education.  I also have a 1946 Ford Coupe with the original flathead V8 that I inherited from my father that is close to being able to be driven on a regular basis.  I just renovated my garage, and look forward to sharing this project with my 11 and 13 year old boys.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Hello everyone!  I have been searching the board for a while and I decided it was time to become a paying member so I figured I'd introduce myself.   A year and a half ago I wound up buying my friend from high school's 72 Q Code Mach 1 that he was fortunate enough to store since the early 90s.   It sat stored until he needed to pass it along and I was able to get it. 

What I always thought was unique about it is that the original owner before my friend, put Hurst Hatch T-Tops in it and gave it a Boss 351 paint job on the hood in black and silver from it's original Gold Glo.  He bought it as is and it has had the same paint job since the early 80s.

I am just trying to get it back running as I am amazed at what almost 30 years does to seals, etc.  I recently got it started and back on the road but I am just trying to make it safe before I really get on the roads!

Hello to all that I know and new friends.  I've been gone over a year and so has my 72 mach been parked.  My son is now a lead tech at a local ford dealer so they don't mind seeing a bit of muscle in the bays.  He just scares me sometimes taking it out for a spin joking," still pulls hard 80-115mph." Haha
Need to put new gears so comes off the line faster.  Stock rear 2.73 just keeps going.

Want to start posting again now that car is getting more street time.

Hi Everyone,

I have been a Mustang fan since 1971 when I got to "test" a Mach I at the dealer in Stockholm, Sweden!
The brochure is still in my possession, with prices added...

Hi Forum. 
Just bought my 72 mach 1 last weekend, but have owned about 18 mustangs of different years & levels of performance & coolness/crapiness.
I've always loved this body style. My first Mustang back in the early 90's was a 73 Coupe & I loved (wrecked) that car. So I was pretty excited about getting my first 71-73 since. 
Then I go out & promptly do this;

Any advice on Cleveland head upgrades while I'm in it?
