Welcome.

You'll need a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or at least the first 5 digits of same.
Should be something like 1F05C of 1F05J. Check dash, door and title.
If not - it isn't a real big block car.

Couldn't see pics but might be my 'net security settings.

Make certain the VIN matches on the Windshield plate to the door sticker to the title. For extra security the VIN is also stamped on the driver side fender support under the fender on top. Have to pull the fender to see though. Looks like a decent car if it is a true big block.

The VIN should be on both Left and Right inner fenders. Like stated hidden under the fender. When DOT does inspection here they make us take the fender off if there is any questions.
The carpet in the car is not Mach 1 original style but could have been changed.
Now make us all jealous and tell us what the deal is. If real and needing complete restore in the low 20's or low teens. Rust makes it go down from there.

welcome  from Luxembourg, Europe.
Yes, we'd need the VIN to know if it is original or not. Still if it has a 429 and a 4 speed it is pretty cool, no matter what, only a little less valuable.


RE: Need help Identifying 71 Mach1 - midlife - 07-19-2017

If a true 429, I can imagine a good reason for needing new rear rubber (tires)...


RE: Need help Identifying 71 Mach1 - codyjones2 - 07-19-2017

The guy wants to sell it for $6500. Numbers matching, all original. Clean title, still waiting on the VIN

If you don't want it I will buy it.

If he doesn't buy it I will.


RE: Need help Identifying 71 Mach1 - jowens1126 - 07-19-2017

The 5th character in the vin should be C or J if it's a real 429 car. Just remember it's only going to get 5 to 10 mpg.
