Hey guys! This has been my project car since I was 16... almost 10 years now... It's been a long road, and I don't feel like I'm seeing the light yet Undecided I did just get her all running and timed/tuned yesterday though.

351 Cleveland 2v
Holley Street avenger 670 CFM
Edelbrock Performer intake
MSD pro billet dizzy
Hooker LT Headers
Flowmaster 40's dumped

I just recently tore the whole interior out, and installed some new floor pans. Waiting for the driver's side seat riser panel. Then on to the carpet/etc.

  Any 72 sprint convertibles out there?

I maintain the registry for these rare Mustangs. Ford only made fifty 1972 Olympic sprint Mustangs. They were used in the DC Cherry Blossom festival parade and sold only at DC area Ford dealers. We have located most of them but about 13 are missing. See http://www.1972mustangsprint.com for the entire history of these special Mustangs.

Hello all. My name is Mitch and I work at a restoration shop near Houston. I saw Rocketfoot's signature for this site on another forum and joined up. We are currently working on a 71 Mach1 for a customer. I am going to have parts left over and will probably need to find some as well. While I work more with 65-70 Stangs, the 71-73 has always been a favorite due to the rareness at car shows ( I love Torinos, Marauders and Cougars as well). Looking forward to speaking with all of you.

Hello everyone glad to find other people still working driving and enjoying this great car. I currently own a 1973 Mach 1 for approximate 19 years is a project car but its been in the back burner due to obligations. But began this year and going with a restomod or a protouring style. I will post my progress and I welcome any feedback.

  '71 Mach 1 in West Texas
Posted by: Mister 4x4 - 08-11-2010, 11:40 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (8)

Hey - I'm Eric from San Angelo, Texas, and I just picked up a '71 Mach 1 (matching numbers) from a local Craigslist ad. Still has the original 351C 2V, C-6, and 9-inch under there, with some long-tube headers (not sure of the brand) and traction bars.

Since I was 14 (almost 30 years ago), I've always wanted a '71 Mach 1, and now I've finally made it happen. She's a little rough, the engine's seized, front suspension shot, body cancer in the normal places, trunk floor pretty much gone, and interior's trashed... but the Ram Air flappers still work, the glass is good, power front discs are all there, seat frames are solid, gauges are clear (not cloudy), and I actually fit comfortably in there (I'm 6'5") - so it's all good.

And now she's mine and will be restored over time to become my new daily driver (I believe in enjoying a car, rather than just parking it). I'm planning on warming up the engine a little with some Edelbrock Performance goodies (cam, intake, heads, and MPI), turning the C-6 into an AO6 w/a B&M Mega-shifter, Flowmaster dual-exhaust, 3.90s in the rear end, 15" American Racing Torque-Thrusts with some fat 50-series BFG T/As, Wilwood or SSBC discs all around, VintageAir A/C (a must in West Texas), a new interior, and a complete coat of proper metallic silver paint with the black Mach 1 trim package.

Here's a couple of pics of my new 'Rustang.'

[Image: 39320_148084911869102_100000027814872_44...6701_n.jpg]

I've got my work cut out for me (and a lot of it as well), but I'm stoked and hopeful to have her back in shape by this time next year. I'm also patient and willing to spend what it takes to do it right. I'll be happy to take any advice offered as well.

Wish me luck and stay tuned.

Hey Guys!

Glad to have found you. Nice to see some others who value the big bodies as much as I do. As you can see from my avatar, I have been a big body guy since the 80's (purchased in 1980 and sold in 83) and now recently (6 weeks ago) I was able to complete my search for another '72 Fastback. This one has Mach badging so I am converting it to a full Mach. It has a 351C 2Vwith long tube headers, and decent exhaust. The big selling point for me was body was nearly rust free, normally hard to find here in Missouri. Since I knew this would be a "project", I also have a 2006 GT Coupe in Screaming Yellow with blackout hood, deluxe Interior, classic rear spoiler, and DD chrome bullits. This has been my "car show car" for the last 4 years and I am past VP of our local Mustang club, currently webmaster.

As one gentleman stated, I also am afflicted with CMD and have YMF (Yellow Mustang Fever) as well. I am posting some pics of both my babies for your viewing.


The '72 is going to be a long process as it was originally a brown fastback with brown interior. When it was painted yellow/black, they dyed the interior to Ginger. I have chosen to convert it to black and am in process of strip down and do a quick dye job, and will change out with true black interior as I go along (and funds become available). Here is a shot of the lady at our Club annual car show last month. I consider this a "as found" picture:


Here are some pics of both "ladies". Hope you all like, and pardon for posting a "new" pony on the site.
