Howdy,

 

I thought I edit this thread cause I have better knowledge of this car history after reading all papers.

 

Model: 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 351 2v. 3 speed manual, manual steering, no air condition.

 

Car was bought by Hull-Dobbs Co (131 Miller St Winston Salem). It shipped from Dearborn factory to Ed Flandro Ins Pocatello (don't know real owner) 1970/9/23.

Görän Z bought car from USA and it was imported to Sweden 1971/9/23. Görän managed to make registering inspection at 1974/02/25. Görän owned car about 18 years.

Tommy H bought car 1989/05/26 from Görän. Tommy owned car about 3 years.

Gert K bought car 1992/12/5 from Tommy. Gert painted hood and win some cups with from car shows (see picture of his sales ad from 1996). As you can from that salea ad car is "matching" numbers but cause it's not rare Mustang it means nothing. Gert owned car about 4 years.

Sivert R bought car 1996/11/12 from Gert. What I know he didn't do anything for the car..only necessary services and driving. Sivert owned car 23 years.

I bought car 2019/5/30 from Sivert and imported it to Finland. I manage to register car for Finland 3.6.2019 and get final license plate after I payed taxes at 2019/8/12.

Car has been driven at Sweden and Finland about 140000km (about 87000 miles). I don't know how many miles it has been driven at USA in that 1 year.

Hi Iku64,

 

nice Mustang you got there, have you joined the FMOC Finland? There's a some information about these cars but not as much as here. I don't follow FMOC forum much, I did followed it for long time though. This is a great forum to ask specific '71-'73 questions.

 

Greetings from South-West Finland

Hello from Mississippi.

That  Mach 1 looks like it has been sealed in a time capsule. Assuming the underhood inspection stickers, paint marks and items like the hose clamps are indeed original, that car almost needs to be in a museum. I see very little that would keep it from having that just built look.  There are many knowledgeable members here who will definitely help you with any questions you may have.

Welcome to your new Mustang home!

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

Welcome from sweden, like your car !

 

Thx Nilsson,

 

I bought this car from Sweden last summmer (2019) from old chap Sivert Rask who is owner of Raask Motor AB at Nissafors. Good chap and still at 71 year age he was making business and planing new exhausts for some Harley model..:). We were spending night at Gislaved in little hotel where F1 drivers were sleeped during 70's races..:).

 

This car was bought 09/71 by Swedesh chap ..he owned it about 20 years..then some dealer (who spoiled painting by trying to polish it with machine) and then this Sivert  bought it at 90's.

Thx secluff,

 

What I know this car is almost it's original condition...engine hood has been painted and last owner has been added that mid consol, switched the original clock to rpm gauge and if I remember right at 90's air cleaner and valve covers have changed by dealer. And with help of this forum I now know that this car have Protection Package which was not factory option for Mach 1 but first owner must have wanted. That package makes unique look for this Mach 1..:).

 

We have wondered what are those big number sticks at firewall..?
