Hi everyone,
Have been lurking for a while but have taken the plunge. See a few other Aussies on here! Have a 71 Coupe (built 10/70). Have developed a soft spot for its shape pretty quickly. Did have a couple of local Ford XA XB hardtops back in the day but saw this coupe for sale and couldn't resist. 351, disc rear end and RHD a/c p/s but pretty standard. Drives great, needs a few small things but is in great shape otherwise.
Look forward sitting down and reading through the posts.

The 1st car I had when I turned 16 was a 71 Sport Roof with a 302 3spd..........I was BAD! I'm 40+ years older now and I'm in the market to find a 71-73 Mach 1 with a standard trans. I found this group during a search and I was very happy to see the following and the great amount of knowledge here. I'm in central PA and would be willing to travel a little bit to get the right car. If you know of on for sale, give me a shout!  Thanks, Brian..........AKA SLO-RIDE

[attachment=4422Hello all, I just picked up a Wimbledon white 73 vert.  78k now 79k documented miles.  302, c4, 3.00 gears.
ps, pb with front discs.  power windows, non working ac.  needs new or repaired door panels and repaired or replaced seat upholstery.  Any direction on  those items would be great.  I did have an issue with the carb today, the linkage was locked up, I freed it up by opening the choke butterfly and jiggling things around,  the problem seems to be internal. I was thinking of ditching the carb and adding an edelbrock 500 and one of their intakes. again any input would be appreciated. 
I owned a 71 Mach 1 from 1977 till about 1983.  had a 302 with manual steering and power nothing. regarding the new car from what I had expected to what I found was that the car rides better and is more solid and planted feeling than I expected, it accelerates effortlessly.  It has a nicely done dual exhaust system with some sort of stainless bullet mufflers that have a pleasing sound.  something I didn't think about before hand was the amount of attention the car gets. After I thought about it, its only the second 73-73 vert that Ive ever seen.  The owner threw in a ram air hood already painted the correct color if I decide to go that way. Oh yea I didn't remember how low you sit and how huge the hood looks from the drivers seat, but that's all part of the fun

Howdy folks,

New to the forum.  I've got a 1972 Mach 1 that I've had since high school.  Currently, it's in storage in Montana but I'll have it with me when my shop is finished.  In any event, I'm looking forward to checking out some other folk's rides!

Hi all, I'm a Kiwi living in Australia and tend to spend my days off working on old cars. Since I've moved here I've managed to collect a couple of Mustangs. The '71 Fastback is a 10 footer with a good rust free body. I'm actually in the middle of stripping it down for a repaint (colour change to Bright Red)

I also own this '69 Mach 1.

Hello from New Jersey,
I have owned two Mustangs, both were 1972 Mach 1's. Both were 351's but my favorite was the H.O. I had. I do not currently own a Mustang but I am on the lookout to purchase another 1972 H.O. Mach 1. Looking forward to visiting here often.

Hey everybody, new to the forum. I own a 72 coupe. Nothing special, just a 302 with a C4. Currently in the process of getting her back on the road. I used to drive it in high school but after I went to college she sat for ten years. After starting some body work, I noticed the right quarter panel was rotted through. I'm a diy guy. If I can do it myself I'm gonna try. So after consulting with some guys and watching countless youtube videos I went for it. Pretty happy with the results. I've also changed the suspension, fuel tank, and I have the radiator ready to go as soon as the electric fans get here. The 302 sounds healthy so no major mods to that as long as it's reliable. The C4 is gonna get replaced with a T5. My best friend has a 69 Mach 1 and he just did the swap. The first tranny he got was bad so he gave it to me so I can rebuild it and use it for my swap. Anyways I'm looking forward to learning from you guys and hope I have a few things to contribute as well.
