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.

Wow absolutely beautiful, That's almost unbelievable condition for an original everything, 71 Mach1. Welcome to the Club. Please share "The Rest of the Story" as Paul Harvey would say. I'm also curious about the  Tbird Clone???  Was the E an Engine code or something? Welcome and congratulations on scoring such a Gorgeous 71 Mach1.
