Hi All
I live in outback Australia and recently picked up a incomplete 72 fastback in very poor condition. Its left hand drive and needs a lot of work but the original 351 Clevo and C4 seem ok!

Welcome Pete I wonder how you found a left hand drive over there? Well It might take some getting used to. Mustang Mike I can see the wheels are turning, all Mustang's are left hand drive, where we come from! It's ok we all slip from time to time. 578254 Welcome Pete and jump in anytime lots of info and good people. Are you going to restore it, or make her your own? JTS 71 Mach1

What was I thinking 578254 As soon as I heard, left hand drive, I assumed it was on the opposite side. Now I question myself as to whether my car is put together correctly...left right, right left!

Okay...let me correct myself. I have seen plenty of left hand drive Mach 1's in poor condition but never seen a right hand drive!

I'm afraid my car makes that one look good Blush
Anyway Hi Guys and Thanks for the great welcome.
I live in Yarraman Queensland and will probably post the odd pic as I go about building her.
I have already made a bit of a blue and bought what turns out to be a 73 mach 1 front bumper not a 72 and will not fit my grill Cry
that little error is what brought me to you guys New

Hey M1FF he is closer to me than he is to you Icon_tongue

Pete I am down in the Lockyer Valley if you are ever down this way. At least I know where I can find a front bumper if I ever need one.
