Hi Jeff:

 

You have one of the rarest and in my opinion one of the most coveted of all Mustangs, the 1972 R Code Mach 1. Congrats. She looks gorgeous. I am sure you love the feel of it and the sound of the solid lifters!

Did you pick the car up from a guy in east FL, the Jupiter area? Just happened that I drove and inspected a red 72 R Code a few years ago in that area. I eventually found a grabber glue 72 R Code.

In any case, a warm welcome to another 72 R Code. This is a great place to share your story. From the Tampa Bay area of FL

 

Ponypastor, I know our car came from Florida but I do not know which part. The previous owners wife did not like the car so he traded it to a dealer in Michigan for a Porsche. I purchased the car in 2009 from that dealer. Our car is not totally original, it has functional ram air, air conditioning and updated radio with a cd player in the trunck and a 71 gas cap but we love it the way it is.

 

Nice car sir..Welcome from Wa state...I love them red heads...Do you got a marti report on it? It would tell ya what dealer it come from in Florida.

Hi Jeff (again): Thanks for the response to my original thoughts about your R Code and its relationship to FL.

 

2009 was the year I drove to the east coast of Florida (Jupiter area) to inspect a red 1972 R Code. I met the owner and his wife and drove the car. At the time, the car had a couple of mechanical issues that appeared while I was test driving the car--it always pays to test drive. So, I passed on the car. But the owner assured me later on via e-mail that the he had had the issues repaired professionally.

 

Very nice R Code. And, as you know already, the AC must have been a dealer (2009 dealer) add-on as R Codes did not come with AC from the factory.

Hope you and the wife enjoy the car very much! All the best from FL.
