1971 Mach1 (M)

Great pics of a great car. Most people think bright sun but early morning, late afternoon or overcast shows the subject so much better.
Now a factoid about black on our cars. Ford had to put so much hand work in a black car they dropped the color from the option list for 1972 and 1973. Lots of members are aware of this but some are not. Marti's book Mustang by the Numbers show hundreds of non factory colors starting the first year. 
For 1972 if you ordered a Mach 1 with black you got a chrome bumper since they did not have the elastomer paint for black. 

For 1973 since there were no chrome bumpers they painted the rubber bumper Argent on no stock colors. I have a black 73 vert and it states on the build sheet to add Argent front bumper. 

So if you look at a door sticker and it has a six digit DSO code and no paint code that is a Special Order non factory color so check closer.

Bad Ass, Wow car looks awesome with the Desert backdrop 

I was not so keen on the first picture because it showed the road in the background on the RHS, but the other pics are Awesome :thumb::cool:
