If I ever meet Emily, I will agree with her and add that she is one of the sharpest minds as well out in the honest “real news” sphere..

I have a 71 Mach 1 grabber blue and white, a 73 Mach 1 Copper and White with power sunroof and a 73 Convertible all loaded
The best 72 Mach I should be the most loaded R code in any restorable condition. Is it out there? I haven't seen a 73 Mach 1 I like better than mine and don't think I ever will, but I'm sure others will think elsewise. I did see a 72 Mach H code with period Hurst T tops Black on Black originally gold for sale a while back that was interesting.

Im in agreement with it being nice but its a Mach 1 only in superficial appearance. I wouldn't give it much notice in a car show. Much like Chip Foose Frankenstein-ing a 71 Mach 1 on a modern Mustang. Why bother if you're going to destroy the history and character of a fine steed.

Why is the arm of the brake pedal and the e-brake rusty??

Attention to detail? Not in my opinion.

Nice build, but not my preference.

I think the builder saw a cash opportunity and convinced her to dump a pile into it..

Whoever made the video is amateur and the company owner constantly repeats himself and kept saying how much the Recaro seats cost.
It's was all about the Benjamins!

Arizona car, 1973 Mach-1, Still has its original 351 Cleveland engine and its original C-6 trans, All original body panels, most of original paint. Interior is restored.
If there are all new parts such as the engine, body parts and interior, IS it still a '72 Mach-1? Not in my opinion. It seems its more of a copy of a '72 Mach-1, using a few original parts. I suppose if she's happy, that's what matters.
