Mexican made mustang 1972 Mach 1
#1
Hello,

I have a 1972 ford mustang mach 1 that was made in Mexico.  351 windsor, 4 speed hurst stick shift.  The Car is in great shape.  Runs and drives excellent.  Walnut steering wheel, arm rests, center console etc...  Can someone shed some light on these mexican made mustangs?  Does anyone know how to read this door code?  Car didn't come with a title but am getting one soon.

Thanks

Welcome to the Club.  Cool Lots of good people, and lots of info. 

    I guess I didn't know they made Mustangs in Mexico way back then? Obviously according to the door tag, they did. One thing peculiar to me is the door tag is an embossed plate glued to the door. It doesn't look like an Official Ford Style body tag. In America they were all a smooth decal type sticker, on the back of the door, in the drivers door jamb. But this was Mexico in the early 70's. and I never saw one to compare it with so who knows? One of our members here lives in Mexico, Maybe he can shed some light on the issue.  Is there a ID tag under the hood? Or on the radiator support?

(09-12-2021, 09:54 AM)Mexistang  I\m pretty sure its authentic.  The speedometer is in kilometers instead of mph and I replaced the shocks and they were had spanish writing all over them.  There is no VIN.  A guy one hour from me who restores old mustangs said he had a mexican one once and he said that was how his door tag was to.  He said there was only 600 of mach 1's that came out of mexico.  Mine doesn't have seat belts and no smog or pollution crap on the motor which i think the u.s. ones did in 72.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/10632426@N05/13193773264 Wrote:

Huh that's interesting. And yes the 72's had emission equipment, which hit the trash can almost instantly. LOL

I've reached out to Steven by Email, as it was January 2020, the last time he had been on the site. And with everything that has gone on over the last year or so. I'm Praying that he and his family are ok. But I'm pretty worried, as Steven is a great person, and friend, and it would break my heart if something has happened to him. So if you have a Prayer in your heart please say one for Steven. Hopefully he chimes in and all is well. Lord God Please let Steven be OK. Amen.

Time flies hey. I spoke to Steven on the 5th of March this year. He was doing ok but he was recovering from the effects of covid so he wasn't 100%. I've been thinking I should call him again so I will try tomorrow if I get a chance.

I have just spoken to Steven and he is doing well. He wishes everyone good wishes. He has lots of issues where he is that he is dealing with on a daily basis so he doesn't have the time to get on the forum.  He lives in a very different world to the rest of us,  but on a positive note he has just been able to purchase a 68 coupe that needs very little to get on the road.
