Hello my name is Josh.

 

I have a 1971 Mach 1 project that I recently bought from a coworker and here is the history so far. I bought it for 6k and was told it had the original 302 that was rebuilt and a rebuilt C4. Also was told minimal bodywork had been done. I knew there was some rust in the driver quarter and wheel well.

 

I yanked the motor and found out its a 289 with 302 heads. The cylinders were shot so I picked up a Mcode 351 Cleveland to rebuild. I got some money back from my coworker too.

 

I also ended up finding a ton of rust in the driver quarter so I am replacing the skin and fender well in a week or two.

 

I plan on doing a complete restore and hopefully will have it Show ready by summer.so
