Hey Gary, Very nice Mach1, very good condition. Like Mustang Mike said, it's nice to have one that doesn't need everything! I always wanted a 429 in mine. But I built a 500hp 351 Cleveland instead. It was a handful and a blast to drive. Just wish I'd of kept it. Good Luck with the paint Job. Hope it comes out great. Keep us posted.

Otherwise, you got a nice MACH 1.
Will do a bit more prep in spring then to paint shop for final prep and paiont  will think about shackles  Its a fun car to drive   I have a real nice 1978 vette with cam but will sell it   This one is more fun. gary

Hey  have to tell you the story to pass along  I had a F350 with 6.0 diesel trying to get rid of it  Guy called to trade for the moch1  met him  car ran terrible  said no deal  A week later he called again and had a video or it running  Did a tune up so wee made the deal  I had $ 4700 in the truck  Good Deal eh. gary

I would say that was a real good deal. Sounds like the guy needed a truck pretty badly!

Evidently both parties are happy.  Great deal.
