71 Mach 1
Currently in restoration/modification. Have rust issues in the passenger cowl vent, and the right pillar and around the windshield. Also need to replace the lower quarters and tail light panel.

I bought a junk body a couple years ago and cut it up to eventually piece into mine, once I learn to weld decently. Right now, I'm in the learning phase, and setting up shop to hopefully make progress soon.

            RE: 71 Mach 1

            Thanks Uv and BT! Have to admit that I haven't actively worked the car since we pulled the engine and transmission last spring. The body rust problems had me scared until I started seeing the work done on this site by Qcode and Mike and others. I'll take some pictures of my bad areas and post them up here for advice when I get the chance.

            In the meantime, I bought a 79 Ford pickup to practice body, mechanical, and paint work on, and to use for trips to Lowe's etc. Also, my wife surprised me with an 86 Chevy Blazer that needs interior sheet metal done. So, I have plenty of opportunity to practice welding and sheet metal work!

            As for the Mach, I've done the suspension work for the most part, and am dreaming BIG with a stroked 460 (540 or so) and Jon Kaase semi-hemi heads for 700+ horsepower. Probably going to back it with an AOD. Thanks for the encouragement!

                I started like you in 2004 with my first mustang.. a 1970 coupe that have had a roll (i dont know if roll is the correct term)... well.. the car was awful and i spent almost 4 years in it but that was my school...

                Everything i do know right, i made it wrong before, 90% of the times on that poor coupe!!!

                It´s nice to have the will of learning... believe me, you´re gonna enjoy the process amazingly!...

                BTW.. i love something about your car even it is dissambled... i think it´s the combination of the body colour with the black wheels and the trim rings... loos old school agresive! Wink

                Well, keep us posted, your car is gonna end up BEAUTIFUL!!

                  The wheels are 14" steelies, and came with the dog dish Ford centers that I hate, so I took them off. I left the beauty rings just so the wheels wouldn't look so bad! Eventually it'll get aftermarket wheels, but for now the tires hold air!

                    Been there done that. It's a long journey but rewarding when it's done. It'll be a good looker too being a Mach 1.

                        I like the way the wheels look now.


                        18 inch flat black steelies with brushed aluminum rings sounds like it would look awesome...


                        I gotta look into that....

                              Unfortunately, no update or progress, my poor Mach is still waiting patiently for life to allow some good work...

                              I can see some original green in different areas, covered by black, and then some aftermarket green... On the plus side, I did remove most of the pieces from a mostly intact car, so I should be able to put it back together somedayRolleyes
