72 R CODE


BURR

Recommended Posts

HELLO YES I'M NEW HERE!    I'm cleaning out a couple garages for a friend. Each one has a 72 mustang in it thats been their since the 90's, I don't know a lot about them yet because I haven't yanked them out from all the trash yet. One shows up as an R code MACH 1. Theirs no engine in it, although their may be one in the garage somewhere, it has some rust but doesn't appear to bad and I have not been able to see underneath yet. Looks like they only made 19 hardtop R codes. The seats are their but not much else of the interior is. The other one appears to be a 72 MACH 1 fastback, it does have a V8 in it but not much interior other than seats. I will post some pics when we pull them out and find a little more about the shape their in. I was looking for someone that can ball park their value after I get some pics and find out more about them.

I think we would all be willing to chip in an opinion on value, once we see the condition and extent of the rust. FYI, the R code Mach 1 wouldn't be a hardtop. It's a fastback.

Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

As rvtrash mentioned the Mach 1 is a fastback.  But it has its own unique body type as per the Vehicle Information Number (VIN).

 

That 1972 Mach 1 should have a VIN that looks like 2F05Rxxxxxx.  "05" = Mach 1.  The x's indicate the consecutive unit number of the car.

 

Ford built 336 R code Mach 1's.  BTW all R codes were 4 speeds.

 

Hardtops - sometimes called coupes have a "01" body type number.  For 1972 R code production 14 were hardtops "01" body type and 5 were Grandes "04" body type.

So that’s an R code Mach 1, built 57 units before my Mach 1 Q code # 17100. Very cool!

 

 

You remember they rarely build them strictly by VIN number.  

 

:D
