New to the group

Recommended Posts

A simple hello to the group. I just picked up a 72 Fastback Mach 1, 351C, 2V, Automatic. Drove 700 miles in one day round trip to pick it up. I have been looking for an older Mustang to restore with my 15 year old son. I have had a lot of Mustangs growing up because my family owned a Ford Dealership for 80 years in a small town. It came to me and I told my father to sell it. I went to college to be an engineer instead. So glad I did because it was too small of a dealership to survive in this day and age. So I had a 66 Mustang coupe V6 in High school, a 83 Mustang GLX Conv, V6 in college, a 88 GT Conv just before we sold the dealership and for the past 4 years an 06 Mustang V6 as my "winter" car. Bought it cheap and it came with snow tires.

Hello from Mississippi. Bet you have some interesting Dealership stories! I spent a lot of years at one. That is a great looking Mach1 and should make for fun project car.

Hello from Illinois. Another Illinois forum members was selling a white on white Mach that was in nice shape and nicely optioned. If this is that car, you've got a great start.

I really love the Black and White color scheme. That is a sharp car. All of your child's classmates will be completely blown away by that car. I got my son a 71 mach for his senior year and he had lots of fun with it. Good luck!
