If he is selling for a friend who restored the car.

Why would he not know the color of the car, interior and BODY style.

Also notice the painted over fender bolts

That ruined it for me

They did not paint around the front side marker lights before applying the stipe and also the frame around the light should be flat black. I don't think the sprayed the black around the tail lights going to the honeycomb panel.

This would maybe be the first 73 Mach down the line never know.

If it runs good and there aren't any hidden rust or other issues (excessive bondo, etc.) the $22K buy now price isn't a bad asking price.

Are you saying that the light frame around the front marker light should have been black? If so that is not the case in all cars. Mine was not painted either, it is white in the attached pic. Could be differences irt where the car was produced. I debated this when I restored my car and kept it the same.

I would only ask are you the original owner since I ordered this car and have been the only owner. It has been sitting in the barn since. 1983 and is a 12,000 mile car. It was painted around the front marker lights before the stripe was applied and the frame around the light is also black. The car is 5H paint code. This Mach 1 for sale on ebay right now has 2,000 original miles and is the same also. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-Original-Unrestored-Survivor-Mach-1-w-only-2-000-miles-Yellow-Black-2-owner-/161621743145?forcerrptr=true&hash=item25a1681629&item=161621743145&pt=US_Cars_Trucks

They also painted the area between the honeycomb panel and the tail lights in the rear with flat black before assembly. I attached pics of my car and my tail light and the yellow car is on ebay now for $50,000 I think.

The paint is peeling on mine and bare in mind this car has not been washed in 32 years. If you wash a car I as sure it would have came off by now but the black should have been on the light frame.

David,

 

Here is another pic of original paint on a 73 Mach 1 showing after they have removed the honeycomb panel.

 

It shows the factory blackout under the honeycomb panel.

Well. I'm the second owner of this car

I know John is the original owner of his car

I have had 25 or more 73 mach 1's - never saw any blacked out

This side marker light black out debate has been going on for a long

time. I have no info on a date or change of the black out details.

I assume it was done both ways or changed at some point

As for the tail light panel that has been blacked out on all cars with the honey comb or the metal trim panel

I am sure there could have been a change but mine was made late in May of 73. There is no way I could have peeled the stripe off painted it and put the stripe back on. I can take pictures of the marker light in back to show it has never been off. The frame on the light was factory black also.

I have been at assembly plants and things get missed or left off but even if they did not paint under the stripe black the frame should have been. Maybe we should look at VIN#s and see if we can find a break point. The low mileage one on ebay was also black. Another mystery to study!

Went looking at 73 brochure and there are pictures of two with blacked out side lights. The small picture in the corner looks like color but cannot tell for sure. I am 100% sure that mine and other were black. My car was shown one time in an MCA national show in unrestored and they did not say anything about the lights being incorrect but said lots of fasteners were and the car had never been apart. That is the reason it go put in a barn in 1983 I do not do politics, lol.

Don't go by what you seen in the sales lit as 100% correct

I as thinking could it have been an assembly line thing? My car was made in Dearborn where was yours made? Could it have been color specific? When you google 1973 mustang mach 1 and look at the pictures some have it and some do not. I think I only saw one of the silver stripe ones that had silver light frame and painted under.

It will be another one of those things that will never find a reason unless someone has the work instructions from the assembly plants.

When the QS and ISO certifications started years ago most of that info got trashed to clean up the systems.

Be neat if we could locate one of those inspectors that put the yellow stamps all over the car maybe they could shed some light.

  • 5 months later...

I owned this car between 1990 and 2002. We bought it in Hermiston, OR from Rorhman Ford. A salesguy had it on the lot in some TV ads, which is how I saw it. Before that, it was an undercover drug car in Toppenish, WA used by the police in various stings.

 

I've been watching for it to resurface. The ad claiming 16,000 miles is WRONG. I drove this car across country twice. If I recall I turned the odometer at least 3 times. A low mileage car it is not. The engine was pretty much worn out when I sold it. It had classic rust issues in the wheel wells along with the trunk. I wrecked it in Spokane, WA in the summer of 1990. It required a new clip and extensive repair. That work was performed by Rutt Enterprises of Pasco, WA.

 

It's good to see it again. Disappointing to see it with louvers on the real window and the slotted mags. The car was NOT a slotted mag car. Instead, a 14X6 trim ring car. Of which I still have a show quality set I kept in storage from my days of owning the car.

 

One of my last pictures of the car when I had it:

5c076242-af49-4145-b31a-4098f73765cf.jpg

 

It is the earliest surviving 73 VIN mustang. It's sales date was in October at a Detroit area Ford dealer. I never quite knew why it sat for awhile. May have been a promo car? It's DSO is 84, home office reserve.

 

Anyhow, I spent my teens and 20s in that car. Drove the hell out of it. It's 2.75's and H code didn't give a lot of giddyup. But was a nice car to own. Moved on a M code 71 mach Grabber Green Metallic... then when the recession hit had to sell out completely.

 

I have a few pieces still. A set of standard 15X7 1970/1971 BOSS steel wheels with a set of driver quality and NOS trim rings. The show set of 14x6 rings I had for 003. I still have the front "73 Mach" plate from the car too. I only shipped it off with the rear plate. ;)

 

Anyhow, glad to stroll down memory lane. Sad to to the see car "optioned" unnecessarily, but it appears well.

 

Cheers,

Stephanie Sandlin

 

Edit: A quick poke through my files yielded these. The front 73 mach plate is in hiding, I did find the temp tag though... I also decided to watermark these images. I don't want a seller swiping them and then giving the story themselves passing these images off as their originals. Seen it done before. Too much hook and crook goes on in selling cars. :/ The seller is welcome to contact me to discuss. That I'm happy to do. I'm not just going to post these for the world to swipe though.

It is neat that you had the information on the car. A car is only original once and after that you don't know what you have. There is a local man here that purchased a 65 mustang new and has put over 1,000,000 mile on it yes one million. Several engines and lots of work. He had it totally restored and you would think it was hardly driven looks brand new. I agree that there are more people trying to make something out a pieced together mustang and say it is totally original.

Great info.

Hi David,

 

That's what got me to sign up and post - that the car was being reported to have 16,000 miles. Kind of irked me. The guy I sold the car knew it was a heavily used driver and had the wheels driven nearly off it. I saw later when he refurbished it, he was peddling a story of how a retired Ford worker remembered this exact car coming down the line at Dearborn.

 

When we bought it, as you see it had wrong 71-72 stripes on it. Clunky ugly mag wheels. The Hermiston, OR Ford salesguy had done a quickie repaint and such. Although, curiously he masked off the rear trunk lid around the mach 1 stripe and preserved the original stripe, lol. I know because there was pewter overspray on one spot on the trunk stripe.

 

The car in the 1980s at one point was owned by people involved in drugs and the car was confiscated. That's how the Toppenish police department ended up with it. Due to it's being well known in drug circles and could slip into drug activity and not raise alarm bells. I made overtures to the Toppenish Police about it, they would only confirm that yes, they did own it and use it.

 

The work by Rutt Enterprises was generally solid. They blacked out the bottom sides of the car for a 71-72 stripe kit but also put on the 73 correct stripe. Looked kinda goofy. I was 17 at the time and didn't know better. They also released the car back to me with wood screws holding the front plate directly into the front bumper! The car went back and we made them redo it with a correct front license plate bracket and repair the woodscrew holes.

 

If anyone in the community purchases the car, I'm happy to chat about my time with it. I tried to get some info out of Michigan on it. No dice. It seems all I could do is get back to say, 1985 with it. I always wanted to know how did it get from MI to WA in those missing years.

 

Cheers,

Stephanie

When the QS and ISO certifications started years ago most of that info got trashed to clean up the systems.

Be neat if we could locate one of those inspectors that put the yellow stamps all over the car maybe they could shed some light.

David, your remark about the assy plant reminded me of something I had wished before.

Wouldn't it be great to get someone on this forum either as a new member or a "Guest" that had actually worked at one of the Mustang plants. I'm sure we could think of a "Few" questions!

I know there have been a lot of questions/issues about the marker lamp paint/no paint with the 73 Mach 1 stripe.

There also seemed to be no rhyme or reason to the issue of two different shifter handles used on the A/T cars. Some stripped down 6cy cars had all chrome, some had the black camera case finish. Same with the well equipped Mach 1's. Some chrome, some with the black handle. Both of my Mach 1's are middle of the road option wise and have black camera case handles. My cousins 73 XR7 Cougar was "Loaded to the Gills" and had a chrome handle. A friend of his had a similarly equipped 73 XR7 and it had the black handle.

I know some of these things are trivial, others are the sort of things that make a lot of us think, "WTH" was going on at that plant!? :)

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Thanks for the kind words Jeff.

 

I did find a few more pieces of the car from when I had it. The steering wheel below was on the car when I had the accident in 1990. Notice the nice oval shape to it. The shoulder belts had been removed before I got it, so it just had the lap belts. Thus, being hit at 45mph, my face hit the steering wheel hard resulting in a nice little scar under the right side of my mouth. This is probably the factory original steering wheel for 3F05H100003.

Also dug out the D2ZA 71 mach Motocraft replacement gas cap. I had it on 03 for about 10 years because I was sick and tired of the correct running horse twist off cap being stolen (happened 3x). Before the car left my possession I took the D2ZA cap off and put on a cracked twist off correct cap. The 71 cap stayed with me, lol.

I have more pictures, but I'll reserve that and detailed history on the car for someone who buys it and wants to know.

 

Cheers,

Stephanie
