By the way, what kind of carb is on that?

 

Was it tagged?

 

If you are going to get rid of it, I would be interested in TESTING it on my new motor.

 

Let me know.

 

Great meeting you....

Awesome score!

Shame, it was a good runner, judging my the color of the valves and lack of lifter valley funk.

Hey James the carb was a Edelbrock AFB and it was junk. Do you still need a stock piston? I have a stock 72 351c 2v that I can brake open. I have 4 351s in my inventory.

I am looking for a standard 4V, condition unimportant. Strictly museum piece. I am so irritated at my builder for throwing all my stuff away...

too bad about the rust, but still should be salvageable. Great find!

I think it's time to get my build thread in order. Starting when first discovered this site back in 2010. I was starting the tear down of my 71 Mach 1 when I came across a new site called 7173 mustangs.com. At the time there was just over 300 members. Little did I know how addicting this place would be.:cool: The first Pic is when I got the Mach back in 1995. The 2nd pic is it last drive before tear down. Next set of pics where taken Thanksgiving weekend when I pretty much disassembled the hole car. Then I pressure washed the rolling shell. Hopefully I will have this post caught up with more currant progress.

Nice, but I want to see the 351-4V. Did you get it finished yet? It was a long time ago from the original post. Looks like a nice car. Is this just the first of many posts to get us up to date?

I'd also like to see more pics on the progress. I always enjoy seeing what everyone is doing to their cars. Always gives me ideas of what I can do to make my build better. I have changed a lot of things after reading other members posts. Keep up the good work.

Yes these are the beginning pics of my project. I will be posting all my progress pics till I get up to current. As for my 351-4V I did pick up a bolt main standered bore block. I don't plan on doing the engine till the paint and body are done.

After the body was all cleaned up it was time to figure out where to start. No better place than the cowl and engine bay. I cut a cowl baffle out of a 72 Grande (parts car #2) which had a little rust but was something to work with. But after removing the windshield I found more rust in the cowl. This spot had to meany curves and bend to replicate so I had to find a parts car. So my wife found a rust free 73 Coupe (parts car #4) out of Riverside CA. This car had a perfect cowl. I ended up using the baffle and patch panel out of this car. After sanding prepping the cowl and engine bay it was time install the patch panels for the battery and under the windsheild. As for the cowl baffle my brother the body guy told not to over think this cowl repair. "Just clean and sandblast out the cowl then glue the baffle in":cool: What!!:huh: So he sent me the body shop supply to get SEM panel adhesive. So I glued the baffle in from the bottom. Too freakin' easy.:D From there I primed up the cowl,engine bay and the passenger compartment floor pans.


More pics.


And some more pics.

Nice progress Mike. Thanks for posting the update pics.

 

I really like the clean, original look of your car. More like the cars looked that I saw back when they were new.

Mike,

Looks like you got a little behind on the updates.

Guilty!:s


Mike,

 

Looking real nice. Glad to see the car back in the garage and getting the attention it needs. What type of time table do you have for getting her back on the road?

I want to say 2 years Jeff. rofl

Here some pics of the parts cars that are being used. Parts car #1 72 sprint sports roof. Sorry no pics. #2 72 Grande. this car had no rust,kinda feel bad for throwing it away.:s #3 72 Mach 1, parts car now may become project later. #4 73 Coupe, This car was sold to member MBeauchamp for his Coupe to convertible project.The 2nd pic is when it was being shipped to Canada. #5 72 pink Coupe,a car I picked up from member GibsonJunk. This car helped a few members with there projects.


After the rust in the cowl and engine bay was done. Time for the rear quarters. Starting with the right side.


I thought the rust spot between the right rear tire and door was going to be the hardest spot to repair. Nope it went real easy.

Just as I'm getting started on the left side I was thinking how am I going to clean up the underside. So I started looking to rent a rotisserie. No one rents them and I was not going to spend 1.700 on something that I would use for a month or 2. Well about the time I was looking around for a rotisserie there was a post here about building one. One of our members posted that he made one out of 8 sheets of plywood. At first I shook my head nope but the more I thought about it the more I thought why not!
