    Hello all,

    Background on 72Machi.. In 1978 I puchased my 1st car, a 1966 Mustang fastback 2+2 289 4 speed, $450! My dream car for 2 years until I saw a 72 metalic blue Mach1 351C 2bbl, love at 1st sight! Out with the 66 in with the 72... Fastforward; 72 Mach goes to college, odo hits 242,000 in 1990,then goes to the garage for a few sputting attempts at bringing her back to her glory days. Present time... Machi has 85% of the paint stipped off, the old T/A's 50 and 60 series on a set of Cragars s/s sometimes hold air. My car has manual drums (yuk) and dealer add on a/c, and standard dark blue interior. I have always yearned for power disc brakes, so I recently bought a very nice (no rust)72 Grandé, with minor collision damage to the left front, it has POWER DISC BRAKES (yeh), Factory a/c, cruise control and deluxe interior, 351C w/4bbl (but is a H code?) most likely just a 4bbl intake on the original 2bbl head, FMX trans.. All I need now is an unlimited amount of time and funds to swap the parts and send her to the paint shop.... will put pics on if anyone wants to see paintless time machine... stay tuned

          WELCOME aboard, Machi!!

          I must warn you about that Grandé "parts car" as I did essentially the same thing with a 1973 302 three-speed Grandé. I saw it as a "parts car" for my '73 Mach I.

          After a couple of months, the Grandé "changed the dynamics" as it now has a 472 (460-based {.060 overbore}), C6, 3:50 traction loc rear and has "beat" the Mach I to the painter.

          So, be careful as these '73s are addictive and can change your "intents" once they "wiggle" into your garage, driveway or homeSmile!

          Again, Welcome and I look forward to interacting with you on the forums.

                Welcome to the spot. I agree there have been times when I had the money but no time and now I have the time but no money. One of these days, I'm going to have both...
