  1. I really expected this to be a cut and dry thing.  I had no idea there would be so much debate.  It has been very interesting.  It’s funny I feel like I should apologize or something.  I hope there is a buck tag code that can be identified.  Here is a pic of my tag of course it only mentions dual exhaust.  Without going off on a buck tag decoding debate.  Is there a quick non-debatable easy answer to the “black” code on my tag, what is it referring to?  Thanks and sorry

  2. Interesting and confusing.  For 73 part of diagram and info chart the February 13 date is significant.  What did it change to after that date?  Also the body type, axle ratio and 4 speed changed what you got.  Mine is a Mach 1, Q code, 4 speed with a 3.25 axle and was built sometime in February.  Would the 3.25 and 4 speed have changed what valance?  Very confusing.  The car has never been repainted and patina on the non-cutout valance seems to match the rest of the car.  I’m waiting on the Marti to arrive any day.  That should tell the day the car was built.  But even with that info it will still be confusing.

  3. I’m interested in:

    Hood latch support bracket that goes from top of core support down to the valance

    Fender and hood extensions

    Passenger side sport mirror

    Center horn part of steering wheel

    Turn signal switch and wiring

    Cernter gauge cluster ( oil,alt,temp)

    Door and trunk lock cylinders

    62521 zip

  4. Do you still have the hood latch support bracket. Goes from top of core support down to front valance? Also drivers side headlight bezel, fender and hood extensions, passenger side sport mirror? The center gauges, did they sell ? Turn signal switch, Eight track radio? Passengers side dash seat belt light? Rear marker lights? Door and trunk lock cylinders?

  5. Wow, thanks everyone

    for the warm welcome!  Hello from central Illinois.  I’ll try and go through your questions and then post some pictures.  As far the patina it spent it spent its entire life in sunny Arizona and must not have been garaged much or at all.  Before this year the last time it was registered was 1978.  The guy I bought it from is a police officer in Winslow and he found the car on the nearby Navajo reservation.  I’m not sure long term but right now I want to address a few mechanical issues.  One being a severely dented oil pan(which is what led me to this forum).  Lose the 70’s sidepipes for a new exhaust.  Then a complete interior.  Then I plan to drive it just as it looks for awhile before I think about bodywork and painting.  As several of you have it is good see it with all its flaws with nothing hiding.  Thanks again!  Now some more pictures

  7. I am a new member and very happy to find this group.  I purchased a 1973 Mach1 last month.  It is a Q code, 4 speed, with an open 3:25 differential.  It runs and drives very nice.  With the exception of the side pipes it is unmolested and complete.  I have always been a huge Mustang fan ever since I was a child.  I like all the early years and some later.  My first ride in a Mustang was in my oldest brothers 1971 coupe with a 351 Cleveland and it left a lasting impression.  He purchased a 1969 Fastback after the ‘71.  I bought the ‘69 from him in the summer of 1985 when I was 15 getting ready to turn 16 in the fall.  I still own the ‘69 after all these years but I have always wanted a 71-73.  My wife also really likes the 71-73( always helps to have her onboard).  I am excited to finally own one of these cars.  I have a lot of work ahead of me with this car and will need lots of help and information.     Thanks Chris
