    Hello from Oklahoma

    Hello,
    Greetings from Oklahoma. My wife has a 71 Mach I that she drove to high school and has owned since 74. It is a rather unusual car. It was first titled to Ford Marketing Corporation in Dearborn. It was kept in Dearborn until mid 72. It has a Detroit(33) DSO. We hold a "B" title to it, as only Ford and my wife have been registered owners. It has a one off stripe on the side installed by Ford, that we have been unable to acquire any info on. We have seen pics of a few others with this stripe, but so far, no solid info. It is also fully loaded with power windows, tilt wheel, intermittent wipers, rear defrost, etc. According to our research so far, it has all options except automatic seat back releases. I would like to post a pic to see how many might have seen or have info on a stripe like this. Thanks for allowing me to participate on this forum.
    Regards,
    DWhitaker

      Welcome to the forums! Glad to have you aboard!

      That certainly is a nice Mach1! I don't know much about the history of that stripe but someone else here may. We'd love to see some more photos!

            Cool looking car. That looks like a "vintage" photo. If so do you have anything more recent?

              Sorry, I don't have many more recent pics of it. This car has not been on the road since 84. Just sitting in the garage covered up.

                  Saw this car on ebay and I thought it was yours. This one has the mach 1 stripe as well, though. Too many conflicting stripes. Yours is just right.

                    RE: Hello from Oklahoma

                    Wow, another one that is Light Pewter like my wife's car. Is this car currently on Ebay? There was a red one on Ebay a couple of years ago and it had both stripes and just looked way too busy on the side with both on it. We saw one here in OKC that was brown with white stripes and it was not very attractive. We later found out it was totalled. This picture you have posted has got me wondering exactly how many of these Ford did this way? And what they called that particular stripe. Hmmm. The search continues. My wife's car does not like too much being finished, I just always shove it to the back burner to work on someone else's Mustang and she is getting tired of that. 71Mach351, thanks for posting that pic. I love that Grabber Green.
