New to Mach 1

Recommended Posts

Just found the site and joined up. My first post to read and it looks as though today is the day! Looks like a sizeable project all in all so I hope that Don65Stang is up to a project and not hopping for a quick driver car. A better deal can be had on another Mach 1 but it would take time and possibly being willing to travel to a non-rust state. Go in with a willingness to turn around but a hope to be the new owner of a Mach 1. All the best, post some pictures - $3,000.00 will make it yours.

Well, congratulations, Don! I think $3500 sounds fair. Now, to nail down the VIN. Then you'll know if there really was a "'Grabber Orange". :P

 

Roy (Tnfastbk), how is it that you win every fruitin' contest there is? ::goodjob::::goodjob::::goodjob:: Stop by the VIP lounge and I'll be happy to let you buy the first round. :D

 

Don - please post some pics of the driver's side dash (not the dash pad), passenger door frame, etc. so we can see what's up with the VIN.

 

Well done, in my opinion.

Now that I'm home I owe the wife dinner out for humoring me being gone since noon looking at & buying this car. It's sushi time. More when I get home...for now though it has pwr disc brakes, ps, no ac, a little floor pan rust not too bad tho, no wheel well rust, has pass side cowl rust, no trunk rust, bubble rust under the paint on both lower doors. Fmx trans. Factory tach.

 

I couldn't verify the vin except on the dash and title. No door data & no body tag. I did see some stamping on the radiator support but could not make out much of it.

 

All in all I think $3500 was a fair price.

The removal starting getting tough at this point so I stopped before I destroyed the data plate ant further.

 

Any ideas on how to uncover the rest of it? ::help::

But I want to uncover it...I'll get a Marti report but that'll take 6 weeks according to his site. I'd like to see the info now. :)

 

Will paint remover be to much & dissolve the data in addition to the paint?
