I guess most of you guys have rust logic. You love rust and changing panels.

So it will go as a parts car I believe. I will never see your logic of buying a cheap rusty hulk spend thousands on parts that do not fit. Then spend all that time in the shop hammering and welding and you end up with a pieced together non original car.

So depending on outcome of the next Dr. visit it might go to crusher I might not be able to unbolt the parts. 

In this area there are no fans of the 71 - 73 I have only had I think three people come to buy parts in several years, PS, PDB, headlight buckets and some sheet metal. One guy had paid $12,000 for a rusty convertible out of NY and was spending a fortune on it. The other had a Mach 1 I think. 

Now I know why Scotty Strickland, owns Mustang junk yard, will not sell complete cars. He can make more from the parts than he can from the cars.

David you lied in the ad

The thinning heard line is a total LIE

You fail to mention the transmission is bad

Don I did not lie. The owner told me that when he bought the car it was running driving. The input shaft is so rusty and with the miles on the car sure it needs a rebuilt. I never sell anything without those words that stand up in court, "Sold As Is Where Is". 

If you want to bring up lies I can. Do you remember a customer of yours in Murfreesboro Tenn? Sold him a 351 C, good engine. I went and looked at his Q code vert he had for sale. He told me lots of info that I will not repeat. Things like that should come from the source. I had dolly with me but left the car there. 

Anyway guy is driving 4 hours to view both the Grande and the 73 Mach 1 he might leave with both. He saw the Mach 1 in the MOM. He had sold the 71 429 car that was also there to a friend and look for more projects. If he doesn't they will just sit there. Don't need the money don't need the cars just playing with my toys. 

You guys must never look for cars except where you live. I posted link to a 71 M code Mach 1 couple years back that was one of the vinyl roof cars 4 speed for like $1,500 and nobody was interested. It was in NC. I think most on here are just talkers an do not get involved with doing too much. 

I do not have a wife that stops me from doing anything I want. I buy and sell what I want. Every used car in the world is a flipped car, lol. That is the name of business buy cheap and sell for a profit. 

Everyone does not want a Mach 1. Guy in our club is so excited he just got the Mustang II of his dreams and could not be happier. There is a car for everyone and not everyone wants the same one, don't want same color, engine, or options. 

My son has absolutely no interest in an old car. The new generation only wants new, faster, better and throw away. 

In this area you would be hard pressed to find anyone interested in a 71 - 73 mustang of any type. Just not the car people are looking for. 

On a different subject it has been in the high 60's last couple days everyone will be sick with all of the Christmas get together s and New Year. I need to go get a flue shot.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

No trades considered, sell only, I need to move cars out not get more. At 71 time to thin out the herd for sure.

 

So The blue 429 at the MOM was sold ?

The guy that had the car before this owner sold it to current guy that put in museum. He changed the color of the hood and stripes from argent to shiny black I was told.

The previous owner is coming to look at my cars from Raleigh.DSC-0958.jpg

That car belongs to Jim, a friend of mine who lives in TX

He had the car restored in 2008 or 2009

It has been in a couple of calender's, magazines and was in a movie.

I don't ever remember it having silver stripes - it is one of 18 429's in this color combo

You guys crack me up you must be an attorney to have to break everything and put words in peoples mouths. Might even be a congress person. Most of this discussion sounds like Democrats trying to impeach a president I heard about once. 

If the Mach 1 is so popular why did the one sit in my back yard with just over 30,000 miles on it and rust away? A verified, with Marti, 1972 Mach 1 T-5 Q code, 4 speed. In fact it is the only one that is in the T-5 registry. It has sat there since in the 70's because of the lack of people that want them. I have had one offer recently from a person on another Mustang forum I will probably let him have it. Again it was worth more as parts than to sell as a car. That is why I buy them they are the rock bottom cheapest years of the Mustang there is. 

Just like the Democrats. I never said anywhere that I was superior to anyone here, was words added to what I stated. I am probably the sorriest on here at solving electrical issues in one of these cars. I know nothing about automatic transmissions but if one ever breaks I will go learn about it. I for sure with the new paints could not paint one as good as most but I will paint if I need to. 

A car is just bolts and nuts and pieces of metal and anyone on the face of the earth could bolt one together if the desire to. Lego sets are more difficult, lol.

I just play with cars not a mechanic not a dealer just get bored doing the same thing so I change it up all the time. 

My issue is I wore out my body before I wore out my desire to work on them. So most of my time is spent trying to recover from doing a few things. 

On the blue Mach 1 in the MOM I went back to his PM he sent me and this is copied and pasted from his message to me. "Did you by chance see a 71 grabber blue Mach-1 in the museum? It was a 429 SCJ 4 speed car. That’s my old car. I sold it to a Buddy that had it on display at the museum." I commented that yes I did see it in the back corner and he replied. "Yes, California car, matching number and all original. My Buddy bought it and did a full resto on it. It is supposed to be grabber blue/ argent but he changes the trim color to black". I have no idea if he is telling the truth just someone on the net answering an ad I posted. 

I will not post his name but his initials are R.H. never met him know nothing about him he contacted me about coming to look at the cars. 

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Well, at least now you know you won't have to go all the way to Michigan to get it.  Probably be able to talk him down a bit, as well.  :whistling:

You guys do not know how to take a joke. You did not even see Or Best Offer, lol. Have couple guys interested so I pulled the ads. It will go to a new home and I will make a profit and one new owner will be very happy because he or she has a car that he has to replace zero panels on and can do in very quick time with no help from a shop if he or she wants. Both were looking for Grande that nobody wants, lol. 

They sold them to original owners for a reason they wanted them. Not everyone wants a fastback. I like convertibles way more than my Mach 1. 

So you guys go buy the rusted out hulks and spend way to much to restore and it be like some call a Frankenstein monster which they are. Not collectible just a great driver. Each to their own I will never buy rust only good solid metal Coupe, convertible or fastback. Waste of money to do otherwise.

Oh BTW what you pay for a car has nothing to do with the selling price. The last two I have sold went for 5 times my purchase price. Buyers were extremely happy with their purchase. Every used car sold is a flip you buy for as cheap as you can and hopefully sell for a profit. Nobody buying and selling cars wants to loose. You do not force anyone to buy they pay what they want to. Saying flipping is bad does not make any sense. How many companies or businesses do you know that buy and mark down and sell? Supply and demand and finding the right buyer are the keys. Most get in too much of a rush and do not wait for the customer to find them. Might take years but there is always someone looking for just what you have. Maybe not a six cylinder, lol. I know people that have put $85,000 into a six cylinder that is now worth maybe $12,000 but that was their baby. 

When I talked to an investment counselor his advice was for me to buy and sell cars since I knew them. Stocks or something similar would have been a waste of my efforts. He said go with what you know. 

It works so I keep doing it. 

So glad you guys got some laughs and some good ribbing in I am tough I was a tool & die maker you just do not know what we went through.

Now I have to sell the 65 coupe I bought.

Haha. Who can't take a joke  :chin: But, I agree regarding the rust issue. I live in in the Rust belt and always buy car's from Cali, AZ, or even British Columbia here North of the Border for the past 25 year's or so... 

 

I recently bought a Coupe after being away from them since 1980... Can't wait to drive it this summer. I like them all. I've had fastback's for the longest time, but switched to vert's starting in 2015 when I bought ny J Code to restore. Added a nice H Code 45 K mi Canadian (British Columbia) '73 vert in 2017 and bought my '73 Coupe in the Fall of 2019. It's not the body style generally, that I look for; its the driveline that catch's my interest first. However, any significant rust is a no go for me today. I've been down that road for the first 20 year's in the hobby and i can now look to spend a little more on a car that is rust free. Money well spent in my book's, but I have a lot of respect for those who fix up a rusty car. True hobbyist's...

"Yes dear", has kept me in the hobby a long time...

Now I have to ask because you post everything so why have you never posted about the two cars you sold ???

 

So what do tool and die makers go through ?
