    Parts for 1971-1972 Mach 1/Fastback

    Though it came late in my restoration, I bought a 71 Mach 1 parts car (minus motor/tranny) and have many extra parts--especially interior stuff--I don't need and don't wish to store. Let me know if you need anything; otherwise it's all going on e-bay to move it out of my storage. Tim; tcole1@tampabay.rr.com

        Might be able to post some pix this weekend (if sunny) of the load of parts available. None are cleaned up, just taken straight out of the Mach before crushing.

              RE: Parts for 1971-1972 Mach 1/Fastback

              Sometimes a car is just to far gone to salvage. The best thing to do is salvage what you can and move on. I completely understand. There is an snippet in the new Mustang Monthly about a 66 Vert that was at auction for $300. It was so bad that it didn't even get one bid! There does come a time to put an old car to rest.

                  I understand exactly what you're sayin' Barry. As well as Tim's (ponypastor's) predicament. Yet, if you need to replace just the front end clip for your ride, it'll be hard to find a reproduction or another substitute for something that's been sent to crusher.

                  Just lamenting old age, and being sent to the glue factory, I guess..... Sad

                    I have a discussion/debate like this with friends all the time. Many of them look at my 72 project and see it only as it is. I look at it and see it only as it will be.

                    That's not to say I don't often feel the weight of the work ahead, but for me it's the focus that makes the difference. I think that's what makes this group stand out. We don't tend to look at these cars and see rust, metal work, welding, dirt and such. We look at these cars and see shiny paint and gleaming chrome, and hear that throaty growl. I think you've gotta have a bit of a savior complex to want to do this.

                    That said, I did send our 73 donor to the parts bin in the sky last year, but only after stripping nearly everything that could be of use (and even a few things that couldn't). I actually felt guilty as I watched the crane arm pierce her rotted roof and flip her onto the pile. I thanked her for her contribution, paused for my moment of silence, and pulled away. Always sad to see them go.

                      With all the parts available today almost anything is salavgeable. May take several years, but we cakeep our breed alive and running.
