1975 Ford Mustang II Mach 1 - Mustangs At The Beech
#1
Quote:Editor's Choice
It was certainly nice to see a Mustang II at the Laurel Mountain Mustang Auto Show during the NMRA's World Finals in Kentucky. So nice, in fact, that photographer Paul Rosner selected Joe Davis' '75 Mach 1 for the Mustang Monthly "Editor's Choice" award.

A machinist from Crawfordsville, Indiana, Joe has made some improvements to his well-optioned Mustang II, but none that take away from the car's stock demeanor. As a nod to earlier Mach 1s, the vintage Shaker-style hoodscoop is attached to the hood instead of protruding through. Fifteen-inch Magnum 500 wheels add yet another touch of previous Mustang muscle. Less obvious updates include a 9-inch rearend with 3.50 gears, four-wheel disc brakes, and 2-inch dropped front spindles. Under the hood, Joe has replaced the 302's factory two-barrel setup with an Edelbrock Performer intake and Holley four-barrel carb.

While most Mustang enthusiasts associate the Mach 1 name with the more muscular models from '69-'73, the Mach 1 model continued right through the '74-'78 Mustang II era. In 1975, the package included dual door mirrors, Styled Steel wheels with Wide-Oval tires, black rocker panel body paint, and trunk lid striping. The base engine was the 2.8L V-6, but Joe's Mach 1 was originally optioned with the 302 V-8. Other factory options included power steering and brakes, air conditioning, rear window defroster, Luxury Interior Group, and spoke aluminum wheels.

Looks like Mach1Guy has the fever for a Mustang II Mach 1. If I came across one in good condition at the right price I would be tempted to get one too.

I love all Mustangs, but for some reason these years never did much for me. I suppose its because they had such a low horsepower rating. I had a chance when I was younger to get faded 77 Black and Gold Mach 1 or a shiny Blue 77 T-Bird. I took the T-bird. Didnt have alot of choices here, my Dad said choose one. I think the fact that I could get more friends in the t-bird helped my decision as well. :)

Welcome Carolina!

Help us out and post up your Mustang II's as well. You do have some don't you or are you dreaming of the day like me. I like the 77 Mach 1 best I believe of these forgotten years.

Glad to have you here with us.
