Oddly optioned 4-speed Mach 1 just purchased last night Good score for me.


Recommended Posts

This car to start explaining has a 94 D.S.O. (export) It is an M-code 4-speed Code 9 (3.25 open) rear. pewter w/stripes. No ram air (have build sheet) No A/C, No power brakes, does have power steering, power windows, console, tach and gauges, tilt wheel, rim blow, deluxe interior, convenience group, deluxe belts w/warning light, fold down, Am radio, and lastly factory Magnum 500's w/ one center cap still on it.

It has been sitting here in Ut. since 2000 but sat in Colo. for who knows how long before that. I have a Iowa title from 1989 then a Colo. registration from 1993.

I also have more original paperwork the owners maual,operating features,warranty facts booklet, and a paper from ford talking about the 90 day break in coverage with the data plate and dealer code (72H407) info on it and best of all the original purchasers name and date! 8/11/71 I will try to post some pics.

Looks like a very worthwhile car for a restoration. Is that a tilt steering wheel?

That will be one sweet machine when you get it done.

Nice catch! With all those options and no air conditioning, I would suspect it was destined for a cooler climate. Just a guess but another idea would be that many in those days did not want a high performance vehicle with A/C as it robbed the engine of too much power and added a lot of extra weight...

 

The Marti will be interesting on that one!

 

I hope you restore it back to its original glory.

Nice score.

My understanding is the biggest issue with AC and high revving engines is the compressor can't be spun that fast while operating.

Yes Mike 73 that is tilt you see. I hope to restore it in the next few years, I have missed my red 4-speed car since I sold it to Don65 I should have kept it! But life goes on. I have to finish my 70 Mach 1 before this one. But I couldn't pass it up for the price.

I found this in Clinton So.west of Ogden Mister 4X4 I did construction on that same street a few years ago and had no idea it was there, it was behind his house.

Will E you could get air with a 4-speed but they limited you to a 3.25 gear in hopes it wouldn't be spun to hard all the time.

 

The power windows all work if you can believe that! It has been wrecked the front clip has been replaced, needs all 4 aprons done, the tilt is stripped on the teeth, the floors and trunk appear to be solid from underneath but I cant open the trunk right now. No key for it fortunately it has the glove box lock so I can take that to a locksmith. The magnums I discovered this morning are mismatched 2 14 2 15 inch I didn't see that in the dark UGH, the original carb is missing at present, may be in the trunk he said there are parts in there. it still has the original distributor though for 4-speed. it also has correct shift knob with the H pattern on top. the underhood light is still there in good shape, overall very nice mostly survivor car.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys!

Wow,

 

That is an oddly optioned car! I might understand why someone might not check off the air conditioner option but I can't help but think their failure to check the box for power brakes might have been a mistake or an oversight of the dealer in not ordering the car with the power brakes.

 

Looks like another great car is going to live yet again! You guys deserve life saving awards for bringing these cars back from the dead.

 

Can't wait to see the Marti Report as well. Hope you will post it.

When they are found it is in the last place you look. Just some words of wisdom for you. Oh yeah, when you finally found what your looking for they seem to be all over the place when you already bought it!

all over the place? I hope this is a metaphor. they only made 1600. that is what 32 per STATE in 1971.

I was planning to put my power window setup in my Grabber Green Boss clone because I have wanted a loaded fastback forever, I have almost every option available for one of these. So this one will be completely loaadedd!! It will have PDB for sure my first 72 Mach 1 I bought in 1985 had drum brakes on it and I hated them. They are so touchy!

Thanks for the positive comments it is very exciting to find stuff like that! It is almost like a adrenaline high! I was out til 11:30 last night with the wife and kids all groaning they wanted to go home, but I couldn't get the owner to stop talking about the car. I was also having too much fun talking about these cars too!

 

I have to mention it hasn't run since 1999 because it wouldn't do anything when you turn the key so he never tried again, well I spent about 30 minutes checking it out and discovered the key switch is bad so I just used the old screw driver on the solenoid and some gas down the carb trick and it started. No smoke no anything I only ran it for the few seconds though so as to not hurt the engine to much before I can get it lubed inside with some oil in cylinders and change the oil.

so your using the power windows as donor? excuse me while I go throw up as I've searched high and low to keep my car "original". Not gonna happen and my car will have to be custom interior for it to "look" right with the after market switches. Maybe Mike429 is right...I'll find a nice set after I drop the coin for the custom work. At this point all I can do is laugh.

 

Good find and congrats, love the set up!

No RPM I have an extra set from a 73 fastback that I was going to put in my Grabber Green car. (by the way the Marti by the numbers says total 71 F/B power windows is 1812) produced. Not totally correct for a 71 but it was going to be a clone of a Boss 351 anyway. So I wasn't going to worry about correct switches. Sorry to get you all tore up for nothing LOL!!

 

The Mach 1 is staying complete but I will put all the extra options I have on it, That is what I was trying to say. I am a purist at heart but I don't mind adding more stuff that is factory options. I have a complete ram air system, A/C, PDB, delay wipers, rear defrost, spoilers, 71 correct 8-track and 71 only am/fm I will decide which when the day comes. I've got lots of trinkets for them!

 

RPM we talked a few years back about my PW setup and possible purchase.

were you the 3000.00 guy??? LOL! I had to laugh...

me: I'm willing to pay a reasonable amount and don't mind paying a nice profit but 3000 is out of question"

seller: "you have a 71 and you need them right?"

me: "yep"

Seller: "that's why they are 3000.00"
