Hello from Colorado Springs-1972 Mach 1


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum.  My first Mustang was a red Grande (77-82), love the color.   Yours looks great!

I'm also recently joined the forum.  There's a mountain of good info here, and every one is always willing to help out with good advice. 

Congrats

Wow!  She is a Beaute!  Hello and welcome from League City TX!   I placed my MDS ignition box on the passenger side mounted on frame where the radiator and condenser is mounted where there is plenty of room.  I also installed the repro plenum on the hood.  A word of caution though.  There is a height restriction associated with it.  The intake manifold has to be short similar to the factory intake.  Also, aftermarket distributors have giraffe necks and will clash with the Ram Air air cleaner assembly.  The only way I got it work was to stay with the factory distributor.  Its definitely a trial and error effort!  Good luck!!

Welcome from Ohio and thanks for the pictures.  The car looks great and from the pics appears to be in great shape.  Keep us posted on your work and when you get a chance post a few more pics of under the hood.

Thanks for the responses! Bobby, the Edelbrock Performer manifold is pretty low profile, so I hope it would work with the ram air setup, but I will definitely measure and do my homework. Thanks so much for the tips!

Welcome from North Idaho!  Those are some great glamor photos you took, quite stunning.

Just a suggestion as you make a list of things you are looking to address; I think your rear wing is on backwards.

Chris, I have been looking at profile shots of the Mach 1 wing on other cars and I am having trouble determining for sure if it's backwards. Here are some more shots of mine. When I look at other pictures it seems right to me, but then sometimes I see a photo from another angle and I question myself. 🤔

My bad; I was mistaken.  Your wing is perfect!  Sorry about that.
