1973 Mach 1 fastback, 351C 4v with Holley Carb and unknown after market internals. deluxe trim package. owned 2 weeks, it's been off the road for 13 years and needs a full restoration.
Hi all, I'm Richard and live near Southampton in the UK, I have just become the owner of this '73 Mach1, it's been off the road for 13 years and badly neglected, this will be a Looooooong project and I'll be asking for lots of advice. look forward to reading all the build threads and making some new friends, I have no idea yet as to what condition the floors are in.

Welcome from Berkshire / Oxfordshire :). Yes, that's a serious project you've got there. But you've come to the right place. How did you come by the car?

Here's what it could look like.

welcome from latrobe PA USA. started my convertible in 03 and after I decided to tear it all down~found rat holes~body was in swiss cheese condition~bent frame rail too and that drum brakes had to go. It was a charity case for how I got it so I asked what I got. Everything was replaced on it.

Welcome from TriCities WA.
Thanks jbojo


Thanks Mustang dynasty, I'll probably be looking at 95% new sheet metal :s and I've got a lot to learn on this, learnt to weld last summer... do you have any pictures of your restoration?

[/font]


Hi Manu64, thanks. not a bond bug, the front half of a '63 Morris Traveller that I was going to turn into a pickup with tube chassis and 3.8 Buick V6 :) but it's going to have to go now, too many others :blush: a '72 F100, '72 F250 and now the Mach 1



Howdy from Phoenix!
Hi Will e, thanks.
