As requested I'm placing this post as a new member.
In late 1971 I got out of service and bought a Mach !. Drove the wheels off of it until the early 80's. (242,000 miles) When the plastic wore off the timing gear and the engine quit I felt she was telling me time for a new engine. Mid 80's that finally happened along with a fresh tranny. After that took it out occasionally but it spent most of the time in garage.
Fast forward 2014...retired 2015....sold the house and moved out of Bay Area......2016.....pulled engine only this time we did some upgrades....roller cam and valve train....got rid of that 4300 carb and replaced it with EFI.....WERE BACK...Yeah....I'm a little older and a little slower but were back on the road again.
Kool April Nights just around the corner.

Hope I'm doing this right, I just purchased a 1972 Mach I. It is a Q code 4 speed with all numbers matching and original paint. It got smacked in the front and sat in a shop since 1982. I am disassembling it now for restoration and may need some advise in the future as to what goes where.

Well, sort of a new member. I've been lurking since September, getting to know my way around the boards. Purchased a '71 Mach 1 in early November, black with argent hockey stripes, and it's taken about a month to wind its way from Detroit to southern Ontario, Canada where I reside. I'll upload a few pics of it in a future post.
The Beast belonged to a rich guy with a collection who had to sell a few dust-gatherers post-divorce. He provided me with little to no info on the car, but my basic Marti tells me it's a very early production (August 14, 1970) 351C M-code. VIN 1F05M101779. I've pulled the motor since it appears the Beast was a garage queen; I'm going to have it rebuilt and update the factory air at the same time.
I'm impressed with the friendilness and depth of knowledge everyone displays on this site. Kudos to you all. I'm sure I'll need lots of advice as I update the Beast for active duty, and 7173stangs is the best website I've come across for that. I'd like to transform her into a warm-weather driver with lots of trips to shows and meet-ups and burgers and beers. Hope to meet as many of you as I can in the future!

Hello fellow mustang fans. My name is Steven and I have a 1972 ford mustang. It started its life as a light blue coupe. By the time I got her she was beat up she had a cheap vinyl top and a flat black rattle can paint job hiding pounds of Bondo that was covering bad body work. Her 289 and c4 trans were beyond tired and it had some of the worst repairs I’ve ever seen (one example is a rag joint bugger welded together).

She now has a 5.0 from a 95 cobra, her c4 Trans has a Trans-go stage 2 shift kit long tuber headers and an Edelbrock intake. She went from daily driver, to drag racing, to wasteland weekend desert survivor.

runninpony 1971 Mustang Convertible

Hi everyone!
I'm fairly new to this fantastic site. I own a 1971 Mustang Convertible that I picked up in 1987 in Germany. No, it is not a T 5. After so many years there were many parts missing that I never heard of. I am looking for the steel plate that bolts to the bottom of the car that attaches to the seat reinforcements and only Convertibles have that. I also need the 6 bolts that hold it in place. If someone has an extra plate please let me know. Thanks so much! "OLD MUSTANGS NEVER DIE, THEY JUST GO FASTER" !!!

  Brand new!!!

Hi all, I'm brand new here. Looks like this site will come in handy.

I started acquiring parts to build a 521 BBF. Got just about everything and assembly will start soon. Decided on putting it in a 73 Mach 1 that I got the right deal on. The plan is to put a TKO 600 in it, and FITech MeanStreet 800 fuel injection on it. My timing is to have it on the road by May 1st. I'm sure along the way I'll have a lot of questions. Might have some parts for sale that come out of the car too. Like a rebuilt 351 Cobra Jet putting out over 300hp. And possibly the toploader that's in it. It isn't the original trans so I have to get the info off it to figure out what it is.

Let the journey begin.....
