Years ago my dad sold his 65 fastback to my cousin. My cousin then sold the car to someone else and I lost track of the car. For years I looked for the car and last weekend I found and went to look at it. I could not believe I was looking at it and touching it. I made an offer and he accepted my offer! I can't believe I found and bought this car!

That's great years ago I tried to track down my Dads 67 convertible but came up short. I'm still looking. Is this car look the way your Dad had it when he sold it to your cousin?

Thats awesome! Its a really sweet looking car. Fastbacks are hard to come by and not cheap. I'm sure you're keep it in the family now. Good luck.

I'm not letting it go! I hope to have it striped this coming winter and repainted. The guy who bought from my cousin had it repainted a different red and let the interior go. So I'll have to do the interior over too. For now. I'll drive it and use it till fall.


Pick is me and my brother next to the car and my father with it below.

Excellent! My son would like to find my old Mach 1, heck, I'd like to find it. I'm glad it all worked out.

Awesome story!!

BTW if any of you bought your 73 Mach 1 around 1981-1982 from the Galveston area and at the time it was blue with red and orange retro flames on the front, PM me ;););)

It's my brothers' dads and it started the current Mustang insanity in my head. I can't afford it right now, but I'd love to check up on it.

Multiple Mustangs!
Great that you found it and you will pass on more memories.

I can remember my dad telling me about the cars he had and let go. One was a 35 Ford roadster, V-8 with the Columbia 2 speed rear. He would race anyone but you had to put up some cash, lol. As family came along it went away and a Hupmobile took it's place and then back to Fords.

I guess that is why I never sold a car just put them in the barn. That is except the GM cars that I gave a try and found out they were not for me. 1974 Nova SS and 1978 Oldsmobile sold them and glad I did.

That's great you were able to buy it back. Now check under the seats and look for any old memorabilia!
