Magnum Hello from Germany - 1972 Mach 1
Posted by: Whitesnake - 09-05-2017, 04:25 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (24)


just bought a 1972 Mach 1 H-Code. Normally I drive a 2007 Shelby GT500
and my wife a 2005 Mustang Convertible

When we saw this black beauty by chance, we fell in love and we got to have it. :-)

Still a lot to do, but I learn every day. Hope to find some help here.

One thing is the history of the car. Don't know nothing. The car was
sold by Dan Stanley Motors in Joplin / Missouri and then disappears
(for me) until 2015 when a guy from Germany bought it from a
shop in the Netherlands (Elmo John). Elmo John bought it from
an other guy from the Netherlands and that's all I know.
Don't know when it comes the netherlands or to whom it belongs

Even don't know when somone did change the color of the car.
Initially it was "Light pewter Metallic", but now it's black.

Serial Numer is 2F05H175900. If anybody knows something about
this car - I will be very happy to hear it.....

this is my march 71 `vert which I purchased 1 year ago totally disassembled (preowner stopped project 15 years ago...)- so now I am organizing all parts which are missing

when car will be 50 years old project should be finished

pre owner mixed up transmissions  Huh  - so now I only have C4 from a 66 fastback with 289 bellhouse but I think I will have to mount in a >=71 C4 or new C4 ...

I am looking forward to learn much from this forum and to change knowledge

Hopefully I am beginning to see the end of my restoration for my 73 Mach 1......may be more of a pipe dream as I am sure it will continue to be a cash  cow as long as I own it.  I have been holding off building a fire in the rebuilt 351C until the exhaust system was installed.  Since it will be coming home soon, I still have one issue I would like to fix before I fire it off.  Hindsight being 20/20....I realize I should have taken more pictures BEFORE I broke it down.....but.....  My question has to do with one or two of the small line vacuum connections.  Schematics I have found lead me to believe I have the FMX transmission dual vacuum connected properly.  What escapes me is the two line connection located on the heater source hose (no A/C), how it connects into the scheme of things.  The other bothersome connection is the solenoid controlled small air line.  All diagrams I have seen show 2 of these solenoid valves, but I only can find 1 in the engine compartment.  It would probably work just wonderful without all those connections, but want to at least try to do it right.  It is my understanding the water temp air control valve in the water pump connects to the transmission and allows better transmission shifting while everything warms up.  Any past experiences.....suggestions...recommendations would be deeply appreciated.

Hello all,

Since I have just joined, I would like to say Thank you to everyone for the information that I have already been able to read already. I was lucky enough to grow up around a Ford Dealer in North Central PA. As soon as I was able to touch the peddles and shift gears I was hooked. Until recently, with military service, family, and financial obligations being a priority, I wasn't able to enjoy many of the things I enjoyed as a teenager...until last week when an early birthday present arrived in the form of a 1973 Gold Glow Convertible. Now I'm hooked again, and loving it.

I appreciate any information anyone has or suggestions when it comes to turning back the clock to 1973.

One happy Mustang owner!!

Hi yall, name's Alex, new to the Mustang crew, been a Corvette guy most of my automotive live.

Got myself a 73 vert with a 351 recently, older restoration but still in pretty good shape.

Car's got a couple of bugs, though, and I hope to get the help I need to sort these out.

Thx, Alex

Hello, I acquired my 1971 Mustang convertible some months ago. It was partially restored. I had to get some electrical, brakes, and tires fixed. Even had to replace the master cylinder and the Goodyear tires were dry rotted. It had about 48k miles, but the province only started in 1986. I'm driving now anyway. The moderator said y'all like pictures so I'm posting some. I really like the early 70s look! I still have a number of cosmetics to work on, but after the major stuff I'm tapped out for a while! ?

  Starting work again
Posted by: ygolohcysp - 08-08-2017, 10:57 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (10)

Hello.  I joined a while ago, and have been trying to find the time and motivation to once again start work on a 73 Mach 1 I've had for a while.  It seems every time I would get started, I'd immediately have to start travelling again for my last job.  Well, I've finally switched careers to a job where I don't travel anymore.  In the mean time, I've managed to pack more stuff in and around my Mustang in it's garage, but a lot of the items may prove useful in doing the restoration anyway, considering I'm not keeping it stock.  Some of the additions to my garage are a Bridgeport mill and a metal lathe.  I've already enjoyed making some parts for the motorcycles I ride.

Anyway, I've finally gotten an air line ran to that garage, so I can finally start work on the Mustang again without having to move the air compressor around, and without the extra noise of it being in the garage I'll be working in, which is nice.  My schedule is working out nicely so I can spend my off weekdays working out there.  I look forward to reading lots of posts here for more updated information about what's available than I'm remembering from 15 years ago, and looking at pictures to help build and keep my motivation.
