Hemikiller's 71 Mach 1 upgrade thread


Recommended Posts

Nice looking car, well done. I like the color, my car originally came with the bright blue metallic, but the first owner decided it would be a better sleeper if it were white. At least he had it done right, everything in and out, very little of the original blue left. I would like it back to blue, just haven't convinced my self to do it, engine and interior are out, so now would be the time.

Thank you Hemikiller for that story behind... I ever wondered what's this Hemikiller about... :thumb: 

What are your plans for the 351C 4V - more original or souped up, already some details in mind? 

Did you have a non-NACA-hood originally on the car as you get it?

Nice history on your car. I think the transformation to the new engine will be cool to watch.

Great story, thanks for sharing. I too like the 70-71 Torinos, a beautiful car. My oldest son and I restored a 71 GT in 2005. It was too nice for him to drive it as a daily driver so it got sold to a collector. I wish we could have kept it. Chuck

Wow... Too bad! I always had a soft spot onto these too. But that's life - sometimes you had to make your decisions when life and cars don't fit together at that time... Don't ask how I know! 

Fortunately you kept the two cars in the back :thumb:

On the rear of the connectors that's kind of what I did but I didn't go around the spring eye. I just capped the end with some metal I had in the garage. I think you'll be very happy with those.
