Hey guys.
Looking for lots of help on my full restoration, have verified through my Marti report that the car is an authentic T-5. According to record this car has not been on the road for 30 years. Already have the car completely striped down to the frame and completely gutted. Am in the process of repairing and replacing all the front end frame rails , motor cross member support brackets and fender inner cowls.
Looking forward to feed back and suggestions.

Thanks. It's my first full restoration and have been thoroughly enjoying it to date. I am single handedly doing all the work myself and have been using your site which I just joined for a lot of insight into what I am doing and were I should go with this rebuild. Am definitely leaning to restomod as I have the car completely striped down.

What is your end goal with the restoration? Resto-mod, daily driver, concours, something in between?

1971 Mach 1, Grabber Blue w/Argent stripes. Original 2V 351C Auto, Tilt, rear defog, Black Comfortweave Interior. Under restoration. Original colors, 4V 351C, 4-Speed, Spoilers, Magnums, Ram Air. All Ford parts.
Don’t throw anything away! Some of the little brackets under the hood, under the floors, and under the back seat are hard to find when you accidentally throw them out with the old sheet metal.

Welcome from a T5-owner over the pond, Germany!

If you need specific advice, you're welcome. I've gone through all of it...

Hey there, yes it's challenging finding parts for the T5. Have been searching for two years for the T5 fender emblem. Missing one.

Yeah, they are not seen very often... But here and there some look up. I will keep my eyes open for you. I have mine right on the fender. 71/72 are known to have black ones, 73 grey ones...
