    1972 Mach 1 from North Carolina

    Hi,
    My name is Andy and I have had my Mach 1 for 22 years. The car is red with black strips, front and rear spoilers, and rear window slats. It is not restored. When I got it there were a mere 39,000 miles on it. I have done a lot of work on it over the years. It's current motor is a warmed over 478 CID big block. It's a pump gas motor with ported heads, mild hydrualic cam, Edelbrock intake and 750 carb. I put a little 125 HP shot of Nitrous on it. The rest of the running gear uses a C-6 with a 2200 rpm stall and a 9 inch and a Trac-lok and 3.50 gears. The car has standard red interior and Magnum 500's, 15x7 up front with 235-60's and 15x8 with 255-60's out back. I have alot of fun with it and drive it as much as I can. I saw a post on another forum about this site and joined up. It's great to see a forum just for the big mustangs!
    Andy

      Welcome aboard, Andy! Nice car you've got there. More pics are always appreciated, especially of that 478 beast. I'd love to see under the hood. Smile

          More BIG Block Power - Welcome aboard, Andy!!

          It is GREAT to have so many members who have used the Ford 429/460 based motors in the 71 - 73 mustangs. This allegedly was Ford's original intent. You are in very good company here and I think you will enjoy the site.

          Again, Welcome!

                Thanks for the pics, Andy. That is one sharp looking Mach 1. Any thoughts of doing anything more to it, now that the engine is a screamer?
