Just took ownership of a Mach 1 mustang and looking to find out as much history and repair procedures as possible. She is in a bad way but I intend to strip her down and build her back up. I also look forward to getting to know you all and getting to know your cars. Thanks

I have started this for hdshadpar as he posted in the middle of another users thread.

Well I hope this is the correct procedure and forum but I have  been a new member for a bit just didn't have time to post, but things have settled down now and plan to enjoy this site so here goes!  Had a 69 428 Mach 1 back in 72, beautiful car!  Should have kept but when you were 19 back then things were different... Anyway, cruising the web one night I was attracted to this 1971 Dark Metallic Green Mach 1 for what ever reason, not even my favourite colour.  As the days pass, well actually a month I send him a message to see if he is interested in trades, he asked me what I have and I tell him a 57 TBird E clone.  Well, he comes back and asked me to send pics and I do, he then comes back few days later and indicates he is interested, so I ask for more pics of the Stang.   I get a pile of pics plus a Marti report.  So, after careful inspection of the pics I indicate that I'm interested in doing some kind of deal.  We set a date for him to look at the TBird.  So before he comes out I get up in the middle of the night and look at the Marti report.  Now this is one month after talking to him and not committed to any deal, at the bottom of the Marti report I notice the built date which states "Built one day ahead of schedule Oct. 30th, 1970, which was my past wife's birthday...  A true matching numbers car!  Could never figure out why I watched this car for so long and now I know why.  So comes and views the TBird and then I go with a auto body/mechanic specialist to check out the Stang.  It has just over 72,000 miles, no rust, original paint, 4 speed, AC, green woven interior, anyway it was a done deal!  And those that read this the whole story it even gets weirder...  but thats another story and true one for another time.  I now have a 1971 Mach 1 in my garage and love it!!  Plan to change/upgrade a few things after reading up on the Cleveland engine, new 7 quart oil pan because they love oil, new oil pump, change valve seals account sitting for 15 years, go to Pertronix ignition and what ever else that can be a good addition, but trying to leave it the way it was.   However lots of stuff that is confusing when you read all the forums i.e. about the different codes (M,H and Q) and when they actually started production of each, 2 bolt, 4 bolt, however will get into the threads to figure out.  I will now try to add a pic... well it won't take so I must read further unless it is there and I can't see.  Again love the forum and looking forward to many more years!!  If I have posted in the wrong area sorry, just went to New Member and seen a nice 69 Mustang and followed.

New member as of today.  Just acquired a ‘69 about 10 days ago and am beginning to sort through some electrical issues.  I will most likely have to lean on the expertise of other members as I dig deeper into the problems.  

Mostly though I plan to just enjoy the ride.  Weather In SGA is great,  so I hope to get out on the road soon!

Hi Y'all,

Just found this group...glad to be part of the Mach 1 family.  Just purchased a 1973 H-Code Mach 1 last week and have been doing some research on what's out there...

This is a locally owned car and I'm the 3rd owner...  It has 46,861 miles on it and looks to be in great shape.  Is been sitting in a garage until 2001 with the original owner.  His son then had it for a while and then the guy I got it from last week had it for about a year and is been sitting.  Engine sounds great.  Rear drive shaft cause it to shake a little, but otherwise, seems to be mechanically and cosmetically pretty good.

Even have the original title to the car (the 2nd owner kept the original title) and all the paperwork including the window sticker...wish Mustangs still cost this much today :-)

Spent a day cleaning the engine and interior...and will start to tackle it one thing at a time.

Did run into a problem...trying to figure out why the instrument panel/radio/headlight not working...check the fuse, seems to ok. not sure if the contact in the fusebox is dirty or what.  can't find anything online on what to look for in trying to trouble shoot that

Looking forward to bringing this baby back to is original beauty!

Hello all, I'm new to the forum,  but not to Mustang's. I just recently purchased a Mach 1, in fact it should be arriving tomorrow.  It is a true one owner, unrestored car, black on black, 351 4v, 4 speed, AC, tachometer, 126k miles. The owner saved almost all the original paperwork including purchase order, warranty card, temp plates, etc. Has anyone here installed the rear slats/louvers that only use the double sided tape? I would like to add them, but I don't want to drill into such an original car.

just picked a 1970 Mach 1. no motor or trans. was a 351 two barrel/ automatic car. was a parts car for a former drag car that had no interior. solid with all the Mach I trim intact on the body. send pictures soon. big project but I believe its worth saving.
