  "new" Mach 1 project, East Tennessee
Posted by: Wilco549 - 06-14-2017, 03:29 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (20)

Hi All! I've been lurking and reading for a month or so, since I bought my 72 project. I'm planning a resto-mod driver, not into car shows or garage Queens. Body is pretty straight and solid. Cowl is currently being re-built by deleting the RH vent and re-surfacing with some salvage material. Plan on going with a classic air or similar anyway. Floor pans were shot and have finished installing new ones. 

I'm slowly sourcing missing parts and plan on bring the beast back to life.  I've tinkered with cars my whole life (53 yrs) so this is not my first rodeo but I still have a lot to learn.

PO had the car down to bare metal and sprayed primer on exterior. Original 351 was missing and PO sourced a 429 D0VE-c from a 70 LTD. Plan on a tear-down soon to see where I need to go with that.

Greetings!  I am excited to introduce myself to this community.  My 1971 Mach 1 is being delivered on Thursday and the restoration fun times will commence.  I plan plenty of pics to follow and relying on this community for information and support.

I am no stranger to cars, I had a '69 Mach 1 at one point but had to sell her to pay for the rest of my college education.  I also have a 1946 Ford Coupe with the original flathead V8 that I inherited from my father that is close to being able to be driven on a regular basis.  I just renovated my garage, and look forward to sharing this project with my 11 and 13 year old boys.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Hello everyone!  I have been searching the board for a while and I decided it was time to become a paying member so I figured I'd introduce myself.   A year and a half ago I wound up buying my friend from high school's 72 Q Code Mach 1 that he was fortunate enough to store since the early 90s.   It sat stored until he needed to pass it along and I was able to get it. 

What I always thought was unique about it is that the original owner before my friend, put Hurst Hatch T-Tops in it and gave it a Boss 351 paint job on the hood in black and silver from it's original Gold Glo.  He bought it as is and it has had the same paint job since the early 80s.

I am just trying to get it back running as I am amazed at what almost 30 years does to seals, etc.  I recently got it started and back on the road but I am just trying to make it safe before I really get on the roads!

Hello to all that I know and new friends.  I've been gone over a year and so has my 72 mach been parked.  My son is now a lead tech at a local ford dealer so they don't mind seeing a bit of muscle in the bays.  He just scares me sometimes taking it out for a spin joking," still pulls hard 80-115mph." Haha
Need to put new gears so comes off the line faster.  Stock rear 2.73 just keeps going.

Want to start posting again now that car is getting more street time.

Hi Everyone,

I have been a Mustang fan since 1971 when I got to "test" a Mach I at the dealer in Stockholm, Sweden!
The brochure is still in my possession, with prices added...

Hi Forum. 
Just bought my 72 mach 1 last weekend, but have owned about 18 mustangs of different years & levels of performance & coolness/crapiness.
I've always loved this body style. My first Mustang back in the early 90's was a 73 Coupe & I loved (wrecked) that car. So I was pretty excited about getting my first 71-73 since. 
Then I go out & promptly do this;

Any advice on Cleveland head upgrades while I'm in it?

I have a 71 Mach1 with factory front disc and rear drum brakes. I am changing the rear drum to disc. Do I need to get a different booster, master cylinder and poportioning valve or can I use the one I have?

Hi!..I became a member of this forum a few months ago but didn’t have the time to write my introduction. I am from Guatemala and I have been a mustang enthusiast all my life! I have a 1971 mach 1 H Code. I enjoy working on the car as much as I enjoy driving it, I am a DIY guy.

I took the time to look around the forum and it is amazing how much info you have! Happy to be part of it.
