Hi retired old Army guy here kinda looking for 71-73 fastback. Used too have a real 70 calypso coral (orange) G code. I was forced too sell back in 81 when my first wife was having my first child. Had a 66 K code 2+2 that I sold in 75 for 850$. The ones I really miss though are not Mustangs but Cyclones. A 1970 completion orange (same color as calypso coral but Mercury had a different name) J code 4 speed and a 68 with the red & white Woods brothers paint scheme 406 tri-power 4 speed (not original). Also had a 72 Q-code torino back in the day. Never had a 71-73 Stang but always wanted one. I'm 6'5" so they fit me better than other Mustangs. I'm currently interested in a car for sale about an hour away. It looks very nice in the pics the seller sent me. He's calling it a 73 Mach 1 clone but I'm not sure about that. The VIN is for a 73 02 sportsroof with 302 . I suspect though that's it's really a 72 that got a 73 VIN plate & title grafted on it. It definitely has a 72 front end & stripes (which I prefer). I know I can pull the fender back & tell for sure, but this dealer isn't going to allow that before I buy it. Pretty sure it's not a 71 because it has the fasten seat belt light on the dash. Currently a 351 C with a aftermarket intake & carb (no idea what factory heads are on it?) Toploader & 9" rearend. The only errors I have spotted other than The VIN & title are it looks too have a new repro chrome bumper & non-staggered shocks ( It'd be a wheel hop queen) . Other than that it appears to be a very nice restored 72 Mach 1. Kinda pricey. Any advice appreciated.
