Though I have owned over the years many Mustangs, this new 2021 Mach 1 has to be the crown jewel.  I had opportunities to own a '69 or '70 back in the early '80s, but like many, young family and no money.  Then in 2004, as I was getting ready for my first deployment, a black with gold strips 2004 Mach 1 was sitting at my local dealers lot.  My intentions was to put money down on it and pay it off when I returned.  The sales associate that was working with me pointed me onto the next generation Mustang, the S197 2005 GT.  Since they didn't have any we went inside and went through a sales brochure.  I had read about, and seen artist rendition of the new model, but they just looked like a remodeled fox body to me.  He showed me a photo of the car in its new package and I fell in love with the old school styling, taking its ques from the 68 Shelby, well at least in my eye.  I agreed and we went through the process and ordered one.  I only had to put a $1000 bucks down to hold it.  I wasn't really sure when I was coming back but my wife would be my go between and would be able to pay for it when it arrived.  Longer story shorter, and after 5 more Mustangs, I had a '14 GT that I bought after my last deployment, but didn't think it through.  I have nerve damage from one of the 5 back surgeries I've had so pushing a clutch became painful and difficult.  So I went back to my dealer to see if we could get an automatic 2014 GT.  Lets see if you can see the circle completing itself.  Yep new model.  The S550.  Though I had thought it looked like a Toyota due to the restyling of the front it kind of grew on me so I bought a new 2015 automatic GT.  I had my eye on the GT350 and Bullitt but neither came with an automatic.  I sold the 2015 GT a few years back and bought an automatic 6 cylinder 2014 to beat around in till something caught my eye.  On June 16, 2020 the news broke about the new Mach 1 to fill the void for the now discontinued Bullitt and GT350, and to top it all off it would come in with a 10 speed automatic!!  The next day I went into my Ford dealer and spoke with my friend that worked there that I wanted to be put on any list they may have to order one.  He moved to another dealership not far away and called me soon after telling me I could order one from his new dealership.  I ordered the Velocity Blue 10 speed automatic.  It came with a full digital dash and cloth seats since there was only the 600A equipment group available when I ordered.  I had to choose between the RECARO seat and the cloth seats.  I plan on taking this on a long cross county trip and the RECARO seats would not be near as comfortable as the heated and cooled cloth seats would be for prolong driving.  I'm still on the fence about ordering aftermarket leather seats when aftermarket companies catch up with their items.  I took delivery March 2, 2021.  I finally did it and have my first Mach 1, and I'm beside myself.  The seats, as it turns out, are better than I thought.  The 10 speed automatic is going to get me into some trouble, I'm sure.   The white accent strip next to the black strip really makes it pop on the Velocity Blue paint.  I would have loved to have gotten the Fighter Jet Grey, but from what I was told then it would only come in the Track Pack, which has a manual transmission and, well you know where I'm going with that.  So I have installed a dash cam front and back, radar/laser detector and to fill the empty space on the doors handle, fitted holders which come in real handy holding my iPhone.  If you made it this far thanks.

My First car was a 1971 Mustang Mach1, purchased in 1984.  I worked hard for 2 years to save the money to buy that car and was extremely proud of it.  Drove that thing all through high school and took it to college.  After a career ending football injury and subsequent loss of scholarship, I did what any dumb poor athlete did back then...I dropped out of school and joined the military.  While in training, my Dad “sold” the car.  We didn’t speak for years after that.  Thankfully, we reconciled later in life, but I never forgot about that Mustang.  So...I am happy to say, a couple of weeks ago I took delivery of a 2021 Mach1 Mustang...life is good.

  bought a project 71 mach 1
Posted by: novice owner of a 71 mach1 - 03-25-2021, 11:36 AM - Forum: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE ! - Replies (6)

I don't know anything about classic cars but always had a dream to get a old mustang someday. I realized all I can get is 71-73 fastbacks as 65-70 fast backs are very expensive so I just bought a 1971 mustang mach1 H code car with no engine or transmission. The body is not too rusty, rear quarter panel bottom has some rust and passenger front floor pan has some rust, other than those places it's mostly surface rust I believe. Interior is all there but the rear quarter pieces (the pieces that goes beside the rear seat) are cracked and not salvageable. Shifter is missing. All chromes and glass is in decent shape. Roof liner/dash/gauges are not bad either. Seats has tears but still usable. It was painted at some point in the past with single stage paint, original paint code is yellow.

The seller did throw in an engine which he said is a 351 Cleveland 4V. Problem is it's missing pretty much everything else that goes under the hood.. Starter, compressor, distributor, oil pan, wiring harness/fuse box, transmission, ignition system and other electrical stuff.

My goal is to get it road worthy as soon as possible within a small budget. I don't really want/afford something with lots of hp or showcar, just a weekend driver. I do not know if that goal is achievable or not but at least want to give it a try.

I am also a bit concerned if I have paid to much for the car specially considering that some people really don't like that body style. I paid little over 6000 for the car. I am located near south east MI.

Hi all, my first post so I might as well make it about looking for a nice car.  My name is Andy and I live in Wilmington North Carolina.  I would love to find a 1969 Mach 1 428 SCJ R code car in Wimbledon White for sale.  I've never owned a muscle car before so why not go big!   Cool

Hello everyone from sunny Florida!  Proud owner of a2004 mach1. Currently trying to remove the valve covers to replace gasket and plug seals.  Wow!  Thought the passenger side would be easy! Can’t get the cover out. Anyone have a tips or tricks to remove without removing the air conditioning lines?  Seriously stuck. Thanks!!

Hello everyone. Yep I'm new here. I am just completing purchase of a 72 Mach 1, and at 63 feel like 16 all over again. Unfortunately for me, the car is 1500 miles away, so I'm a week from seeing it. Yeah, call me crazy, bought sight unseen, except for pictures and video. I know it needs a front bumper, along with some miscellaneous items. Looks like the bumper will be difficult to find. Chrome ones are everywhere, but a Mach painted one, not so much. I will await arrival to unveil the picture, but looking forward to sharing. I should add my first car was a 71 coupe, which Unfortunately is gone. But, funny story, as a high school senior in 76, I test drove a Mach before my coupe, but couldn't afford tge extra $1000. Guess the Mach 1 was meant to be, just not then.

Hello everyone, 

I'm new to the forum, but not to mach 1's. I had a 71 4 speed car in highschool in the late 80's. I sold it in 94 to buy my first house. In 2004 I bought a brand new azure blue mach 1 while in the army and living in Germany Drink_to_that . That was fun to drive around in Germany (Switzerland, Italy, and Austria too) and see the heads turn. I still have that car, but it wasn't/isn't the same as my old highschool 'sweetheart', so in 2008 I bought a 73 mach 1 project car, but never really had time to work on it until now. That is what brings me to your website. I have been working on it for a couple of months now and I have been reading as a guest for a while and decided to join up. To be honest, I am not a big forum poster and usually go to them for information and tech stuff when I need it. I'm going to need alot of little detail info because this car has apparently been several other people's project car and never finished. So, now there are lots of little "why is that like that" or my favorite "why don't the second set of motor mounts fit".  

I hope that I can contribute useful information to someone here too. The info below is not to brag, but more to state I understand most highly detailed information and prefer it that way. I have been turning wrenches for 35+ years.
Short story about me: 
Professional mechanic 1989-1997 specialized in transmission rebuilding/overhaul. ASE Master Tech 2006-2011. 
Army 1997-2006, six years as a UH-60 blackhawk crewcheif/repairer. 
2007 AAS in Automotive Technology from Central Texas College
2012 BS in Mechnical Engineering Kansas State University
2013-2020 Project/Repair Technology Engineer at G.E. Transportation specializing in engines
