  Hello from WV
Posted by: Mjordan - 11-19-2017, 03:19 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (11)

hello, been around here for awhile, finally have something to post. 

My dad bought this 73 sports roof while vacationing in Florida in the mid 80's. We drove it back to WV stopping at every gas station to check fuel and add oil. Made for a long ride to say the least with the 351c 2v and fmx. From there he replaced all the sheet metal except the doors and roof straight from ford and painted back the blue glow. The 2v was pulled and replaced with a 72 351cj and c6. Rear is a 9" from a 58 ford (narrower than stock). 
Fresh from being painted, an 80? year old man pulled out in a dodge Omni, he locked the brakes and slid into him, damaging the Mach hood and fender. Insurance claimed both were at fault. 
Fast forward a few years, it went through a few years at the drag strip and then was sold to a good friend to fund our tube chassis 83gt. Fall of 2015 (18 years later) the guy that bought the 73 called offering it back because of divorce. It found its way back home with a whole new game plan...lol

I used to be a Chevy Chevelle guy, but when I saw this new 71 vert, I couldn't help myself. I guess it's an investment in my future mid-life crisis. My wife is already calling it the "other woman."

She's a pretty big project and there's going to be a learning curve. I haven't done much in the way of body work. After looking at some of the other project threads, many have started off worse than mine. So, I'll just take small bites.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of the projects progress! [Image: ee1376bed72bbc0ac3f5866b55c76a76.jpg]

Bought as a repo in 1973, 72 Mach. 
After a hard life I retired her in 1994 to the back of the shop. Earlier this year I brought her out of retirement. New gas tank, fuel pump, trans overhaul and tires she's back on the road!
Thanks for letting me join.

Hello everyone, I first saw my dream car when I was 19. (23 now)
It was a 1972 mustang grade in grabber blue with a white hardtop, 302 engine.
Now I finally own that car, bought it earlier this year.

Also while I'm at it, I've been replacing the radiator support and was wanting to know if anyone has or knows where I can buy the bumper reinforcement? Part number D1ZZ-17A792

Thank you for any help, glad to be a part of the club!

  Hello everyone

Hi, I'm handling the restoration of my grandmothers mach 1. She originally bought the car in 1972 as her very first new car with what I've found to be a very odd combination of options and perhaps factory persuasion. I'm still waiting on the marti reports but some things are just odd. She babied the car until she loaned it to her brother and for insurance signed it over to him. It took almost 20 years to get it back but she did and it had become a 3x wrecked mess left to sit in the yard. As she nears her 70's her husband has decided to restore it for her and I'm the one to guide it along. I've been working with this vehicle for the last ten years now, as when it was reacquired almost nothing was available but NOS parts but finally its nearly done with new parts available every day. I'll be posting a few questions I'm sure but I've been through a lot of sources and if I can help anyone find anything I'd be happy to help.

Hi folks, 
 My name is Scott.. I am 58 and getting closer to retirement... The kids are grown and gone.. so it's just me and my sweetheart of 38 years now..
For many years have been a avid involved motorcycle road and dirt racing guy. Raced and built lots of bikes.. really enjoy wrenching..
I have owned a number of trucks and cars.. always found a way to modify or make them my own thing..my first car was a '66 Chevy impala SS... (man I miss that car!)
 But I have owned a couple Mustangs.. but they were not really great.. a Mustang II.. a plain jane  coupe. I did kinda have a '68 302 coupe when i was a teenager...well really it was my sisters but I would steal it when she was off at college or gone for a weekend.. sadly she got t-boned in it and though she came out of it ok.. the car was toast..
When I was a kid I really hankered for a 71 model.. I love the 71-73 style.. 
Right now I do not have a Mustang to show off or talk about.. but I have a suspect in my sights and hope to be pulling the trigger soon.
 i joined because I love to learn and see great cars and builds.. I hope as I get further along in my quest that this site and others like it can make me much more knowledgeable and understanding of these cars and what  is correct..and what is not so much..
Thanks for letting me join and lurk about.
Scott


  Hello from a long time lurker...and finally an owner
Posted by: JoeAngersIII - 10-26-2017, 08:57 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (20)

Hey folks,

My name's Joe and I live in Massachusetts.

I grew up in a car family, expecially a Ford family (you can say we bleed Ford Blue). My dad's a street rodder, but I've been a Mustang freak ever since my aunt (at the time, my Uncle's girlfriend) pulled up to my grandparent's house in a black 1969 Mach 1. I was ten at the time, and I had never seen, or heard, anything like it. And I've been in love with the Mustang ever since.

I've owned various ponies throughout the years, with my first official car being a 1966 Mustang Fastback that I received as a high school graduation present. It was restoration project that I never got to enjoy becuase circumstances demanded I sell it. Being an 80's kid, I also had my share of Fox bodies, and my last pony was a 2000 GT. I love Mustangs of all stripes, but I've always had a soft spot for the 71-73. It goes back to when I was a senior in HS, and my uncle took me "shopping". He showed me a Grabber Blue '73 Mach 1. It needed some TLC, but I could see underneath that it was something special. I loved the low sleek lines. The near flat back blending ever so sublty into the kamback style rear end, with the slightest hint of a ducktail. My family couldn't get me to shut up about the car. Well, it turns out, that was the car I was supposed to get for my graduation, not the 66. And if not for the owner's obstinance, I would have had my dream car.

Now, fast forward nearly 30 years. A little older, maybe not so wise.

Like the title says, I'm a long time lurker, and as of today, agreed to buy and put a down payment on a 1972 Q-Code Mach 1. I may have the find of the year, and I have not been able to get the grin of my face ever since I shook hands with the owner.

About 90% of the restoration work has been completed, and when I say this car is solid, it is solid. I crawled underneath the car with a flash light and I've never seen cleaner floors on a New England car. I should take delivery sometime in the next week when I can arrange for a flat bed. Everything I need to put the car on the street is included, even a brand new set of 15x7/15x8 Magnum 500's.

And the pictures do not so justice to just how beautiful the paint is. It looks factory/showroom new. Not super show quality mind you. It's not like it was wet sanded and polished. But it probably looks better than when it came out of the factory.

I can wait to put a little elbow grease on her and get her ready for the spring. She's not a perfect show car, but she's going to be a beautiful summer daily driver.

Anyways, I look forward to being a part of the community. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as I button her up and put the finishing touches on her. But it's never the big stuff that gets you, it's always those small niggling problems that cause the biggest headaches.

Joe
