Welcome and nice color and drive train combo

 

You mention the badly repaired core support.

From the sig pic it also looks like it has a 73 fender.

Years ago when these were hit, it was pretty common to pick up parts at the local bone yard. I've seen quite a few with mis-matched fenders.

I've even see body shops mix them.

The 71-2 urathane bumper won't fit up tight to a 73 fender.

Hello,

Thanks for comment about fender. Guy we bought from takes blame/credit for mustang script below Mach1 on fender. He says he added. Are there other reasons you say 73 fender and how can I tell? We plan to do significant work on this car and if we have a wrong fender good to find out. We will replace rad shell and inner fender quarter which is beat, but if fender needs to go should do that also. I will look more closely critically at fender.

Thanks,

Jenny

Nice car! I do like the color combination! My boy and I are just finishing up our 72 mach 1 project. We didn't bring it back to original but did a complete tear down and rebuild. I was hoping to come in around 25K when done but came in closer to 35K due to a complete engine, transmission and rear end redo. Two years of work and wouldn't trade the experience for nothing. My two younger boys now want to do one! I have a bunch of pictures of my project on the new members thread.

Hi Jenny, the emblem was the first clue.

The fender extension goes down to marker light height

The lip inside of the bumper cut out is the main give-away.

 

Go look at Barry's [ rocketfoot ] Mach 1's garage pics

There is a good shot of the 71 - 2 fender / bumper cut out.

It's the left side but look at the cut out, there is no lip section.

Hope this helps figure it out, if not let me know and I'll get you some pics

Don

Interesting, I just found out that I have a 73 front end on my 72. Thanks for the info Don. Will a 72 grill fit into a 73?

 

Yes, might take some tweaking though

 

You have a 73 bumper ?

Well car is getting ready togo to body. Have 71 dynacorn fenders and extensions. After stripping out interior have poor pass rear floor pan and rusted but still solid front pass floor pan. Heater bypassed and obviously leaked awhile. small amt of surface rust on trunk pan but not heavy at all. We have body just about stripper out but plan to do paint removal with aircraft stripper and sanding as needed.

Thanks for your tip the fenders were 73.
