Hello, I'm Chris and I own a '73 Mach 1.  I attached a picture of the car.

I originally bought the Mach about 16 years ago.  It still has the numbers matching Q code 351CJ, C6 automatic and 3.25 Traction Lok 9 inch rear.  The build date was 12-13-72.  It is a original 5A Light Pewter Metallic/black deluxe interior car but needs to be repainted.  It has some nice options like power steering/brakes, A/C, convenience group, console, full gauges with tachometer, fold down rear seat, leather wrapped 2 spoke wheel, forged aluminum rims, rear defroster, and tu tone hood with hood locks.  

Thank you for letting me join.  Chris.

I want to see some more pics of the hood. I am very interested in the paint I am wanting to do the exact same thing when I repaint mine later this year.

Looks like a good solid project car.  Do you know if the dents father up were caused from him when he backed into whatever or are the from something else.   I'm not a body man but I would definitely have it checked out to make sure it didn't  do any other unseen damage.

I asked him about all of them.  He said the dents on the sail panel and rear quarter were from something falling on the car when it sat in their shop and he said his kid backed it into a pole.  So I had it checked out real well.  Didn't find any other damage.  Car drives and handles fine.

I don't buy his story, no falling object would do this kind of damage and the way the 3 visible creases are connected is the result of one and only rear kiss, and surely a wet one! You're in may be just for a quarter panel if you are lucky, how does the trunk floor looks like there?
At least it's not been repaired with a big hammer and kilos of Bondo, as @kilgon suggests, let a pro take a look at it, so you know what you're looking at...

We've all found out hidden pearls ( still do), it's part of the hobby I guess ;)
