  1. Not sure I can agree with you....

    LOL, most do not realize the Mach 1 option was appearance not performance. A 302 2-V does not do much. 

    Base Mach 1 engine in 1971 was the 351 "H code" 240HP

    Base Mach 1 engine in 1972 and 1972 was the 302 "F code" 140HP

    Base Mustang engine for all 3 years is the 250 "L code" straight 6 with a whopping 99HP, so technically it was a modest performance option, you cold not get the Mach 1 package with the six.

  2. With 44279 fastbacks built in 72 that would make 5.8% (the color was only offered in 72).  I have been scanning the market for years and have only found maybe 20 cars in 4F that incudes all body styles.  There is a junk yard by me that has the remnants of a 4F fastback but I have been unable to get him to sell it to me.  I need to get over my originality issues and just paint one.

    Wonder what happened to the model?  If she is 20 in the picture she would be 68 now.... 

  3. I wanted my 1972 Mach CJ back, I had in high school, could not get it.... wanted a Boss 351 looked for a while... found this for sale locally...

    1972 Fastback 302, cam , intake, carb, glass packs out in front of the rear wheels.  Original Ford 15" magnum 500 wheels, 1965 dual piston Shelby disk brake kit (about 4 hours), put in a 4 speed, car was originally a 3 speed (took about an hour).  I drive the wheels off it, don't stop at a gas stations if you are in a hurry.  Never lock the doors or even roll up the windows full Mach One interior with fold down rear seat.  I have a 1971 M 351 to put in, but the 302 sounds and runs awesome.  My biggest problem is getting my 20 year old out of it.

  4. They just told me the car is completely original....Pretty sure ram air was not an option for Q code car, and it is not on the invoice. The magnums and also not on the invoice. They say same owner for 30 years. I think the reserve is 35k, nice car but that sounds pretty high.

  5. Watch Craigslist always a few 1-2-3 part cars for sale in the Midwest.  Any 1-2-3 will work you could come down cut the front end off and bring it back as parts, much easier at the border.

     

     

    Might want to try to save the VIN numbers on the shock tower.  We have a tendency to forget... about 4 screws will remove the dash pad and the VIN plate from any 1-2-3.  You could easily make any fast back a boss.  Was not a big deal in the past because they were not bringing big money, but now $ will bring in more scams.
