  1. I have a 1972 "Q" Code Mach 1. Were the "Q" codes equipped with the 3 gauges in the center below the vent? Or was that an option or just on "R" codes? Thanks
  2. Very nice cars. Really liked the backgrounds you chose.
  3. Nice Boots! The car ain't bad either. Pretty incredible where you started from.
  4. I've been doing some research on my Mach1. When I checked out the Door Plate which in '72 was is a Sticker. The lettering is not aligned. Was this normal or am I looking at a duplicate or fake? The sticker looks a bit too new given the age of the car.
  5. Greetings, About nine years ago I found this 1972 Mach 1 Mustang in Stowe, Oh. The VIN# says it’s a “Q” code car. The car is equipped with some aftermarket goodies including Performer Intake, 750 Holley, Headers, aftermarket mufflers, a Mallory Uni-Lite Distributor, and plug wires. The engine in it is not original as it has 2V cylinder heads. Internally it has a Sig Erson hydraulic cam with stud mounted Crane aluminum rockers. Someone installed a Hurst V-Matic Shifter for the C-6 and had a boot made to resemble a 4- speed set up with a “T’ handle. Since I race my 1988 Hatchback Mustang in NHRA Stock Eliminator I haven’t done a whole lot with the car. I cleaned up the under-hood wiring, replaced the Edelbrock Carb with the Holley, and worked to get the paint (more on that in another post) shined up and sealed. Now that I am retired, I have been paying a bit more attention to it. Lots of little issues to address. Have had it out to a couple outdoor car shows including the October 2019 “Pumpkin Run” in Owensville, OH. Overall, the car presents a nice appearance when driven which garners some ego satisfying thumbs-up from other motorists. Hope to glean some knowledge from fellow members and check out their machines. Attached are some pics of my Mach 1 and the ’88 Stocker that inhibits me working on it more. LOL
