  1. Yeah it’s had a few things down to it. Definitely not exactly as optioned. the interior is upgraded to deluxe, the rim blow wheel, the front bumper, to give it a boss sort of look. But it works for me, and I have almost all of the original parts too
  2. https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1971-FORD-MUSTANG-MACH-1-COUPE-243218 I think I was about 35k usd. Really nice restoration. Numbers matching M code car but not colour matching and no ram air like it was optioned with. nice car, big money
  3. Ok, so coming in late... work... you know how it goes guys. well I was a little high, but it was about 3k to register it yes. Ontario taxes suck. its interesting how much this mustang was originally, I had 1of400 Canadian 1970 Cyclone GT’s and it was only 4100$ in 70 and was extensively optioned. I guess ford really too the “response to European cars” to heart I love this forum, I always learn so much. I understand the stock order now. That makes sense. did anyone see the yellow 71 m code sell on Barrett-Jackson last night? Cheers
  4. Yeah I 💯 agree, the reports can definitely make things seem more rare. I definitely Like the options on my car, performance, and plain.
  5. So the thing that I really find interesting about this car of mine is the fact that it was built for the showroom floor as it was optioned. ie... not custom ordered and the only one made with those options Not sure how many other people have run into this, ford building a car without a special order as a “1of1”. I mean you certainly wouldn’t see that today. I’m sure that if you break things down far enough eventually they are all “1of1” or close to it, but interesting that it was optioned the way it was by ford to simply sit on the showroom floor. The thing I don’t love... I
  6. Sorry to hear about your situation machattack. Thanks for sharing that video! Engine sounds smooths, takes me back to my first job putting engines on a dyno and setting them up for pulls. Stanglover, it’s so funny you mentioned it! I used the proper clamps, I sourced them at Napa just last week when I swapped out that fuel filter. Those little gear clamps, forgive the pun but I have to, GRIND MY GEARS! Lol So quick fuel sounds pretty universally loved around here
  7. Sorry for the late replies! The sending unit and tank are new and the lines are pretty fresh too.. might be a bit of the inside of the filter... maybe it was real old but I think I’ve got that portion of the issue sorted. I honestly wish I knew these tricks. Enough reading and maybe I’ll have some fundamentals down lol. I’m hearing good things about FST carbs. And I had ahold of the summit catalog the other day. What particular model of the summit would you suggest? There are ones I saw that look like Rochester style carbs and others that look like holleys
  8. Again thanks for all the advise. I’ve always run Holley carbs and quite frankly I’ve always had adjustment issues... but I guess I just keep going back to the same mistress again and again hoping for a different outcome! The quick fuel does sound interesting , as well as the summit carb, I’ll have to look into pricing. I never thought of the pump arm. I will give that a look and see what’s what there. I did change the fuel filter and found some bits of what I am pretty sure is the old float from a sending unit... I’m going to guess from 10+ years ago? I was thinking that could have
  9. Thanks guys, for the input. It’s definitely cool out today, 6degrees Celsius so it runs real nice once it warms up, I’m definitely thinking it’s starving for a bigger carb because when it was on chassis dyno, the race shop owner tuning it said the same and really “knows his stuff” . Probably should have just said order what you think works but we both thought we could get it close without opening the wallet to much more. That said no one knows better then the owners of these cars since you all have seen it and can probably completely understand this problem from the few words I write!
  10. This has probably been gone over before, but I figure heck, we all love to talk about our cars and since we can’t get out into the parking lots with the whole pandemic thing I’d like to open the floor up to opinions... that’s right fellas, not necessarily facts but opinions on what he best carb for the job would be? My car: 1972 351 CJ (4v) 4 speed Stock engine, except: Headman long tubes, edelbrock dual plane intake (I believe it’s square, but I guess if push comes to shove I’d need to confirm) MSD IGNITION drop in distributor, and a Holley 670 street avenger carb. The carb has
  11. Hemikiller, thanks for that info. And again thanks to everyone else ! You just said mopar... so the price went up lol
  12. Fox body pump? Interesting. I think I’m a little crazy, I’ve had it out about 200 miles since March 25th? So early with the mild winter and the now completely clean roads, so I drive it all the time. But that said you are right I am out a little early... later I. The year I’m hoping it will start and idle a little easier! Cheers!
  13. Hey guys thanks for all the replies! I honestly didn’t k ow so much about tires... being an 87 model myself these tires are typically long out of service by the year of my birth lol. I will definitely check out the Torino montego forums! I use to own a 70 cyclone GT but I had no idea what tires were on it? Any other cars you guys think they would be right for? Other brands? GM, dodge? As always, Cheers!!
  14. Thanks guys, first for holding out on Facebook! And second, big red mach you get it, these will definitely make or break a concourse car. Definitely will be up someone’s alley.
  15. That is spectacular stanglover! I feel Slightly vindicated that you don’t know what the green thing is called either and you probably built it lol! Thanks for the input! My manifolds were cracked so for economy reasons it was actually easier to make the switch to flowmaster long tubes. What do people think, does the hot air actually help the motor get warmed up sooner or is it sort of some 70s hocus pocus? I plan to go to efi in the not to distant future for drive ability ty
