  1. Great looking car. Is the drivetrain original, numbers matching?
  2. This is why I am happy I live in the south! I had my convertible out the last two afternoons. Hang in there guys, it will be worth it!
  3. Will be interesting to see if/what it sells for. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-429-SCJ-MACH-1-/181698827071?forcerrptr=true&hash=item2a4e18133f&item=181698827071
  4. It is a re-list. The bidding got to $59,499 and the reserve was not met. Will be interesting to see if it finally sells and if so, how much it brings.
  5. Ended at 25k with reserve not met. I think 25k is a good price. What do you guys think?
  6. My Mach 1 is at the paint shop and will look exactly like yours with the color matched bumper but minus the louvers and vinyl roof. It was originally a non-striped car with the lower chrome trim pieces. I am having them removed, the holes welded up and adding the hockey stripes. It already has the two tone hood. To me this is what I have always pictured the perfect Mach 1 in my mind. I can't wait to get her back. You have a gorgeous car!
  7. Great story. Some days I still have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming and I really do own a J code Mach 1 myself!!! Just realized this car is owned by a member here, 71JCode!
  8. Congrats Jeremy on the award! Wish I could have been there but life has a way of intervening from time to time. Let's pick another one soon and I'll be sure to make it! Joel
  9. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-mach-1-1972-mustang-mach-1-r-code-351-h-o-4-speed-3-91-boss-/111615366334?forcerrptr=true&hash=item19fccb54be&item=111615366334&pt=US_Cars_Trucks Sure would look good parked next to my 71 429! Wonder what it will go for? What do you guys make of the "factory mistake" in the VIN?
  10. The first day I owned my convertible I drove her to dinner. As I was getting out of the car a man leaned out his window and said "She sure is a beauty!" and that became her name, Beauty. My Mach 1's name goes along wither her color, Emerald. She is awfully beastly to be a "she" but my cars have always been "female" and my trucks have been "male". My 13 F150 Raptor's name is Brutus.
  11. I just booked a hotel room for the 6th. Ill be there.
  12. I'm going to try to make it. Weather will dictate if I bring the convertible or the Mach.
  13. Tomorrow it is going back in the shop for a complete suspension refresh. I will get some videos when it gets back and we have a pretty day.
  14. Sold for 14.1k. Hopefully, painting error aside, it will be as nice as it looks and everything is on the up and up. If so, not a bad price I don't think.
  15. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-1972-ford-mustang-mach-1-documented-survivor-california-car-at-no-reserve-/181652683114?forcerrptr=true&hash=item2a4b57f96a&item=181652683114&pt=US_Cars_Trucks Someone might get a nice deal on this one. Will be interesting to watch. 3 days, no reserve.
  16. Good looking car http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-Awesome-1972-Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-Nicely-Restored-Low-Mileage-A-C-Show-and-Go-/371244248650?forcerrptr=true&hash=item566fe1ae4a&item=371244248650&pt=US_Cars_Trucks
  17. I'm loving my TKO in my 71 429. Mine was already a 4 speed car though so that made it easier. Of course all I did was write the check for the transmission and install but the guys who did it said it went in without a hitch.
  18. So was mine. It had the 170 inline 6 and a 3 speed. It was my sister's first car before it became mine in early 1986. Drove it 14 months and upgraded to an 82 F150.
  19. I believe that car belongs to Amer who is a member here.
  20. All that waiting in line has been my biggest worry. If you guys do the Joplin to Chicago run and are open to adding a few cars let me know!
  21. Any one here ever do the Hot Rod Power Tour? I started this new year by moving into semi-retirement and don't plan on working for awhile so this year might be the perfect year for me to do this. I would most likely drive my 71 convertible. I'm just wondering what it is like.
  22. This is local to me so if anyone would like it checked out I'd be glad to help.
