Not a Mach but has all the functional goodies; M-code, handling suspension, 14x7 Magnum 500s, 'SportDeck', PS/PDB & more. That's original paint & interior folks! 44 this July; definitely a survivor.

Wow I just had a flash back! The front tires are Kelly Springfield Super Chargers I bought a set of those back in 1973 They were the first tires I ever bought. I had them on my 1965 Mustang hardtop. Bias Ply as I recall. I love your car and the wedding pics are cool.

Thank you! When I bought it still had the F70-14 WideOval original rubber. Current spare is one of those. Within 2 yrs it had radials but handling suffered. When the radials needed replacement went back to bias. Wedding pics are my middle daughter. GOOD photographer made everything look it's best; even so, car is a head turner. Now 106K miles.

It's an M code car, so that's got to be a 351 emblem on the lower fender.

I'll pass that along to the photographer (not me). Medallion reads "351" as gxr02190 stated. Both MachI & Sportsroof shared same (63) body; letter code following 63 differentiated 'tween base (A), deluxe (B - Ford 'Flair') or MachI ©. Lowest production (by far) was the 63B. Mine is one of those. My Marti report revealed a few pleasant surprises. Thanks for the comments!

PS: Pic is within month of purchase in 1974.

Around here they were known as ground-grips & swapped twice yearly. Also want to correct the Mach I trim code to "C"; as I can't edit original post.
