Hello,  I've utilized the site for quite a while and I'm finally a registered user. My Mustang, a 1973 Mach 1 I've owned for 44 years was completed last fall.  Thanks to many I gathered much useful information from during the process.  The restoration was done professionally; with the exception of the engine which I rebuilt, and spanned 11 years using two restoration shops. One a not so good experience and the second great.

The car is a 351 Q-code with a four speed both original, with a rear axle fro a 70 Boss 302 with 3.91 gears.  It has a coil over front suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes from Wilwood. The interior is stock with newly reupholstered front seats with the original materials thanks to a great lead from this website helping me track down the only supplier. I'll attach a couple of pictures.  Hope you like it.

Welcome to the site. I've owned my 73 convertible for 44 years also! Is black the original color?

The car was originally yellow with the mach 1 stripes and black hood with original slotted wheels. I decided black was my color and when it was painted black back around 1976 I thought it really set off the body lines and didn't want to put any stripes back on. We added the chrome wheel arch trim to break it up a bit just before I got it back this fall.

Mustangsally,

 

Glad you decided to "officially" join us!

 

I think I have the original "twin" to your car, except my yellow/black '73 Q-Code came with a C6.  Right now, it is undergoing a transplant to a 545 (but that is another story that is chronicled elsewhere here on the Site).

 

Seeing your car has given me an idea, specifically that I think I am going to go "BLACK" for my paint; that is a GORGEOUS paint job you have on your car...THANKS for sharing and WELCOME!
