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.....

I am using my fathers login to this site - he had many good things to say about the group and had made direct contact with several members. Thanks to all of you who made his participation fun and enjoyable.

My Father passed away a few weeks ago after a long fight with cancer. He was 97.

I've read through his post and they brought back many fond memories.

He sold off nearly all of his collection of engine parts last year but he left us a 1971 convertible as well as a 1973 convertible to build and play with. I am looking forward to finishing these with and for my 2 kids.

So if it is acceptable I will continue to post here from time to time and will certainly ask for help when needed.

Hi everyone. New here been a lurker for a bit. Heard about this page from browsing the super awesome 1971 Mustang Mach 1. Finally bought one a few months ago with an interesting history. I bought it from a man in Idaho, he explained that car has been in his family for 25 years. Raced it for a few years and retired it and it has been sitting ever since. Here is where it gets very interesting (at least for me). The car has had it's engine replaced with a Boss 351 engine. They even painted the car with the Boss 351 stripes (pictures to come). Not only that I wanted to get a Marti report on it but the replaced the dash and did not write down the VIN from it so they had a new one issued to the car. Huh Anyways this forum looks awesome. Cannot wait to see what is in store.
