    1971 Q code

    1971 Q code

    Hello all its been a wile since I have posted here. I got my elite Marti report on my car and it states out of the 29 4speed 1971 Q codes. Mine was the only green one made. Ed
  3. Thanks Mike I will try a set of those.
  4. No problem with the tail pipes and the crackle I was referring to was not loose metal in the mufflers.
  5. Hello all soI bought my 71 mach 1 with a 351 4v in it. It has hooker headers and dynamax super turbo but they were rusted and had holes. I don't want to sound like an idiot but in all honesty it sounded good and when you got into it it sounded great. The car came with a new set of dynamax super turbos so I installed them today. The car really sounds like a dog and doesn't seem to run as well and has lost all of the crackling it had when you let off the gas quick? Any thoughts?
  6. Thanks for the informative post 72hcode!
  7. This is a roller motor would that change the type of oil I run in it? Sorry for the novice questions.
  8. hello all what is the best oil to use in these old motors. a buddy of mine told me to use royal purple. thanks Ed

    1971 Q code

    Yes Adrian thank you for the information and time on the new car as I would like to know as much as I can about it. Is it true that the 71 Q coded cobra jet engine came with functional ram air as well? Ed

    1971 Q code

    I will check to see if the engine tag is still present. The pics he sent me of the care are really bad. It will be here Thursday morning so I can take some good ones. Dave I wonder what was on the air cleaner from the factory and has anyone seen an original to say for sure. It was a cobra jet engine with ram air. Ed

    1971 Q code

    Here is the Marti report on the car. I called them and asked why the functional ram air was not listed and they said that the 1971 Q code cobra jet engine came with functional ram air and the Q signifies that. Also thought it was odd that it has the tapped holes for a rev limiter? Did all the engine bays have that? Thanks again for everyone imput. Ed

    1971 Q code

    1971 Q code

    Okay so I got my pdf elite marti report on the car tonight. You guys were right that it was ordered with an A code 3.50 conventional axle. But you were wrong that they were not ordered together because it clearly shows they were. It is 1 of 29 cars with this engine and transmission code. Ed

    1971 Q code

    Im waiting on the elite marti report. That is what I thought as well. I do have the original build sheet and the ac is factory. The door sticker has A listed for the axle.

    1971 Q code

    Yes it really is a 71 Q code and not only that but its a 4 speed ram air car with 3.50 traction lock and ac. Im buying it for 26k. Im probably paying a little to much but I think its a really rare find. Its all original with one repaint. Ed

    1971 Q code

    Hello to all new member here so I will give a little info about my quest that led me to this car. I set out to replace a 1970 yellow 4 speed m code gt torino like I had in high school. I went through the wanting a 429 cobra and all that instead of just looking for an m code. Prices are through the roof and looked at a few of them. But I have always had a thing for the mach one's. So to not make long story longer. I happened across this mach one and road out last weekend and im buying it.

    Hello to all.

    CZ-75 I have one on transfer right now along with a semi MP5SD. I sold my Fleming sear to get my first 42 but kept my 3 host guns(HK94,89 and a special 53). Hi Jeff, it's a 1971 Q code ram air Mach one. Im very excited to get it and have been trying to do some research on it. I just made payment for the elite marti on it.
