  Hello from Orange County, CA
Posted by: ocsurfer411 - 10-18-2017, 03:20 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (20)

Hey, I'm Jason.

Just acquired a 1973 Mustang Convertible in June of 2017 that's been graphic'd up to look like a Mach 1. She looks pretty and has a new 351C, but still needs some additional work to be "perfect" in my eyes. I don't mean show perfect, I don't ever need her to be a show car...just a little more work to make her something I don't feel I need to do "that next thing" to (if that state of mind even can ever be achieved).

I joined the OC Mustang Club, but haven't yet attended an event (but I shall).

Shout out to me if you're close by and want to have a look sometime (and show me your Mustang).

Hey guys,

I've owned this beauty for about a month now.  '72 Convertible with the 351-4V Cobra Jet.  Sounds cliche, but this car was housed inside for 18 years and brought out to be restored where the owner promptly passed away just after he began the process.  Still has a 1996 registration sticker on the windshield, the last time it was on the road.  Long story short, I got my hands on it and had it reassembled.  It runs and is in great shape, currently having the Carb rebuilt and a new gas tank installed.  

Motor and exterior are quite nice but she's missing some interior components, so I'm wondering if y'all couldn't help me with some parts websites?  I got a Marti report to see what it was equipped with when it came off the factory floor and she's missing the AM/8 Track Stereo, the Console, some misc screws, knobs etc.   Also, the convertible top only goes halfway and it needs a new piston.....  

Also, what do you think of the wheels and top?  Any chance they're original?  Was told the top was but who knows.....any advice and comments would be appreciated.

Thanks so much, I've loved looking at everyone else's pictures.....

     First off this is my first post to this forum, My car is a 1971 Mach 1 with a 351 Cleveland 2v and a fmx transmission. I bought this car in 2012 when i was 12 for $2300 (with the help of my dad) when we got it, it was a all numbers matching car. My dad and i rebuilt the motor and bought a rebuilt AOD transmission we put the motor in the car and got it ready to start. We tried starting it but it just clicked so we checked the battery ground but still nothing. so at this point we thought it was a bad starter so we bought a brand new summit high torque starter, with this new starter the motor turned over but very slowly. We were stumped so we checked the compression and sure enough 0 compression across all 8 cylinders, fed up with the motor we racked it and we bought another 351 cleveland 2v that was rebuilt for $1000. Thinking that this was the solution to our problem we attached the transmission and dropped it into the car. We cranked it over and it fired right up but then came the problem of it not idling, the only thing we did to the motor since we bought it was put the intake on which we thought was the problem. So we pulled it off and made sure it sealed right which we did successfully(not easy) and tried to fire it up again. It still would not idle and we knew it wasnt the carb because it was a brand new summit carb but to make sure we put on a holly that we knew worked and still nothing. That leads to the problem we currently still have is it not idling. We have tried about everything electricaly so i dont think it is that. The thing that confuses us is that the timing is set at 40 degrees advanced for it to actually run until around 2000 rpms where it will die, if we try to retard it to around 15 it will not start. So we are currently stumped if anyone knows what the problem could be I would appreciate it alot to hopefully get it back out on the road. 
      To the rest of the car it was origianly silver (it will be repainted eventually the same color) with standard black interior. It came with a tach and dash pack.

Give me some feedback or advice on loving an old 72 Mustang!

  Hoping to Reenter World of Mustang Ownership after 30 Years
Posted by: West Valley Mustang - 10-04-2017, 12:36 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (25)

Greetings.  After owning a 1969 Mustang Grandé early in life and restoring my family's 1966 Mustang Coupe, I have been away from Mustang ownership for about 30 years.  I am hoping to work out the purchase of a 1972 survivor convertible in the coming weeks.  If all goes well, I will be spending some time here trying to learn some tips on how to spruce up this car.  No major restoration is planned.  I am hoping for a relatively low maintenance cruiser to enjoy in the Phoenix sun.

  27 Years Later- I am back in a Mach 1...
Posted by: Teach - 09-20-2017, 08:05 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (14)

My name is Rob and I like cars. Alright, I like anything mechanical, but cars can be beautiful and go fast. I had my first Mach 1 when I was in high school. The body never made it beyond primer but it was fun and fast. I traded it in toward something that got better gas mileage but have never stopped appreciating them. I have had one car project or another since then but they have been mostly German cars.

Three months ago I got a lead on a '73 Mach I. That same day I negotiated to trade two of my German cars and some cash and it was a done deal...sort of. My wife did not approve. The two I was trading in had been with me 20 years. We went on our first date in one, drove to and from our wedding in the other...she was not happy. I laid down the law and within an hour she was a believer. She got her sobbing under control enough to say "I know it will be OK. We'll make NEW memories". Since then she has admitted to really liking it. She is the best!

This new Mach I is a keeper! I bought it from a dealer but was able to talk to the previous owner. It had been restored 15 years ago and has had minimal use since. A (previous) previous owner put a performance cam in it (sounds great with the large exhaust) but "wanted to keep it looking stock", so it still has the two barrel setup. I may go to a four barrel eventually. For now I am just driving and enjoying it. I have gone over the car pretty thoroughly and it appears to have been a very good restoration on a car that was solid to begin with. Most of the interior is original and everything else (brakes, exhaust, suspension, etc.) is new. It drives much, much better than the jalopy I had in high school.

I have already used the forum for information and look forward to being around in the future.   I will attach a picture of the car.

Stang My '73 Mach 1 and I say Hi
Posted by: GeoBW - 09-16-2017, 04:39 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (25)

Hi All, Greetings from Oz. 

A few months into a full resto, having just finished an MGB for my kids to drive when they come home - yes blatant bribery. Never having had a Mustang before I will have lots of questions - just warning! I will try and search existing threads first though. Keen to talk to anyone who has done a resto on a 73 - though i realise they are all very similar.

Thanks in advance.

(Here's the car I just finished)

Magnum Hello from Germany - 1972 Mach 1
Posted by: Whitesnake - 09-05-2017, 04:25 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (24)


just bought a 1972 Mach 1 H-Code. Normally I drive a 2007 Shelby GT500
and my wife a 2005 Mustang Convertible

When we saw this black beauty by chance, we fell in love and we got to have it. :-)

Still a lot to do, but I learn every day. Hope to find some help here.

One thing is the history of the car. Don't know nothing. The car was
sold by Dan Stanley Motors in Joplin / Missouri and then disappears
(for me) until 2015 when a guy from Germany bought it from a
shop in the Netherlands (Elmo John). Elmo John bought it from
an other guy from the Netherlands and that's all I know.
Don't know when it comes the netherlands or to whom it belongs

Even don't know when somone did change the color of the car.
Initially it was "Light pewter Metallic", but now it's black.

Serial Numer is 2F05H175900. If anybody knows something about
this car - I will be very happy to hear it.....
