1973 Mach 1 Ford Marketing Car


Recommended Posts

Just got home last week and have begun restoration. Plan to put all back to original along with black vinyl top. Will keep everyone updated as to progress. What a great site this is!

The twin to your car was for sale in VA Beach, 84,000 miles and all original. Saw a kid driving it to work at Target guess he bought it.

::welcome:: G'Day and welcome aboard,

My thats a long list of options, you should get a Elite marti report with the full break down, With that many options you would go close, If not end up with a 1 of 1 car.

Anything is possible, It just takes time and MONEY....

Very nicely equipped 73! Really happy to see your desire to restore back to original.

Hi guys,

 

As many of you know I recently picked up a new 73 Mach. I have always thought it would be nice to have the original invoice from Ford and mine was available.

 

I have never seen one of these before so looking for anything that stands out or is unique. Appreciate any insight.

 

Says car was sold to Ford Marketing Corporation...is this who all cars were sold to?? Anything else stand out to you guys who have seen other ones?

 

Thanks for all the input!

I got mine a couple of months ago. You have a well optioned Mustang. Did you also get the individual statistics? It looks like you could have a fairly uncommon set of options. Mine was sold to a local dealer, not Ford Marketing Corporation. It was interesting to find out that the dealer was within about 50 miles of me. Apparently, my car is local.

jb73...thanks for the input. I did not get the individual statistics. I would love to see a copy of yours just to see what looks different.

Very interesting. Is there any option for 73 your car doesn't have??? WOW.

 

71BossPrototype is a member on this site and is very knowledgeable about Ford promotional Mustangs. Might be worth a visit concerning your car.

 

It would be interesting to see how many Ford Marketing cars we on here...

Thanks Ray for the info...I sent him a PM to see what insight he can share. On another note, I found this Ford Marketing photo from 73 and the Mach in the middle looks exactly how mine is optioned from what I can see...the black vinyl roof can't be too common.

By the way, this is the most optioned car I have ever seen and it was near the very end of production for the 73s. Well done finding & buying this car!

 

The only odd thing that I notice is that I wonder why the marketing group would order a maxed out car at the end of production. That is odd. There were several maxed out 71s in Aug, Sept and Oct of 1970 but June of 73. Very unusual unless it was for one of the executives in the department who didn't care for the Mustang IIs. That's my best guess.

That is called the Eminger invoice.

Yours has the original punch holes

for the IBM line printers used back then.

Notice the letters are not quite aligned

properly. That is a one of a kind document

for your car. Notice the line at the bottom

that reads "10gal gas $4". Mine reads 12gal

for $4. The price is already going up!

I checked mine from April 71; 12 gals for $4.00. 42 years later 1 gal for $4. :dodgy:

From just quick look it doesn't have 8-track, 4-speed trans, trac-loc rear or fuzzy dice.

Ya..Very true...But what is odd...Mine 2 is ordered in June with almost the same list of options.....Same red with white interior...Mine got a white top instead of a black...lol.....His has a few more...His built on june 12th...Mine on June 4th...8 days within eachother...and flat out his is the only 73 mustang i ever seen with more options than mine....I have have read alot of marti reports.

Yeah, I remember talking about your well optioned car and the mystery code. Yours was tops until Jeff found this one. Both are cool and interesting. :cool:

maybe to use up all of the remaining parts, before the Mustang II's came out, not much of the 73' parts could be used on the 74's? just a thought.

I thought that too..But i have read many mustangs marti reports built later than our stangs with much less options...lol..Maybe they offered a deal to dealers and retail people when it was getting late...Cause most optioned out cars i seen are retail or special ordered...I have yet too see a stock order that high..." Yet "that is..lol
