73 Mach1 My first car.
#1
I have a 1973 mach1. Bought it in 1988 at a local lemon lot. I love this car because of the sharp body lines, Stong sounding engine and the hood scoops.
I've been working on it ever since, in fact, the heater core started leaking the night i brought it home.
Two engines and a tranny later It became a reliable daily driver. but I wound up working a hour commute away and even at 1995 gas prices I couldnt afford to drive it 120 miles everyday. So it sat. I would drive it occasionally.
I got some offers from people but I had too much money tied into it to let it go for cheap. And it really wasnt costing me anything, so I decided to keep it, knowing if I sold it I would deeply regret it.
About 3years ago i decided to restore my car, not show quality, but nice enough to take out. I'm taking my time with it. And I enjoy playing around in the garage.
Hopefully If anything pops up that the ford or chiltons manual dont cover (which actually seems to be a lot) i can reach out here for some good advice.
