Bug 73 Mustang Noob
Posted by: da55 - 10-10-2019, 10:37 AM - Forum: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE ! - Replies (19)

Good Evening,

My name is David, 28 years old, as of 10/8/19 I became the owner of my dream car. I have been in LOVE with the Ford Mustang Mach 1 since i was 10 years old, specifically the 71-73 models. I picked it up here in Texas, paid a guy to cover my shift just so i could drive at 0600 to go and see it and buy it. 
It needs work, rusted in a good handful of places, but it runs great, interior is good too. I want to get it 110% mechanically and then worry about the cosmetics. Ive been doing some research on it, its a 1973 Mustang Mach 1, but the VIN says its a Mustang Fastback 1973 out of Dearborn, Michigan. Its a 351 V8 2 barrel.
I have several questions, but the biggest one is this:

Whats the difference between a Mustang Fastback and Mustang Mach 1 on the VIN? Ive tried searching for specifics but no luck. 

Did I buy a Mustang Fastback or Mustang Mach 1?

Thanks in advance, i iook forward to this community.

Hello!  I am Jon.  I am 20 years old from Canada.  
I am new to this group and I just bought my second mustang.  First was 2004, and now I bought a 1971 Mach 1.  It needs paint and nothing else.  
Underneath looks brand new, with not a single spot of rust!  I am going to paint it, and put new tires on her.  

I am picking it up tomorrow morning.  Wish me luck.

  Extra parts
Posted by: kiteboarder ken - 08-05-2019, 12:57 AM - Forum: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE ! - Replies (1)

Hello all!   Kiteboarder Ken here.   I have had my 69 Mach 1 S code since I was 15  years old (40 years ago!) My dad bought it for me for $800.  She has had a 428CJ in her with a shaker for about 35 years that I got out of another Mach that I bought for $250!!  The whole car, not just the engine.  Yes back in high school,  I purchased several Mustangs and never paid more than $250 for them.   Anyway,  I have a lot of extra small parts and some larger ones, that I will never use and would like to find a good home for them.   I live in Tampa and if anyone has been looking for anything, please let me know.  I don't mind mailing some some parts but I don't really have the time to deal with the larger ones.  Will trade parts for beer.   

Partial list:  seat belts, window parts, starter FE, flywheel for automatic, radio bezel, misc. interior parts,  the metal pieces that go on top of door panels for a convertible, various lights  etc.   I also have for some reason the metal part that goes on inside windshield for a convertible  but I think its is for a 67/68.    Most parts are original, some in very good condition, some not so great.
