1972 Mach 1
My dad and I bought this 72' Mach 1 about two years ago and we are just now getting around to really digging into working on it here recently.

The owner before us passed away mid restoration, had sandblasted and repainted the exterior and was turning two possibly three cars into one on this Mach 1. The interior is estimated 80% completely missing so its like putting together a jig saw puzzle where you don't know what the picture should be. 

The further we get into it the more we are discovering what is missing. I will most likely be asking tons of questions about other's interiors and scouring the classifieds during my stay. Anyway hope this is a satisfactory introduction.

Well you came to the right place for help and answering questions. Aftermarket support for our years is lacking compared to the first and second generation but there is a good bit of interior parts available. We will help you out! It sure looks like a fun build. I am looking forward to watching he progress.

Thank you all very much! This was the first night we brought it home I wish we had done a better job of recording our progress thus far but since we have both decided to buckle down on this I will try to be much better about that.

Mustang Mach 1 (1973)-351Ci-4V
:welcome2:  from Belgium.

Yep, this is the right place to ask help for advice and parts.

I bought a Mach 1 about 5 years ago in boxes and had that problem also " a lot of missing parts "... It's since 2016 back on the road with help from people on this forum.
