72 HO Mach1 on Ebay
#1
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LOST-BOSS...500wt_1182

I guess the questionable engine is keeping bidders away.

Says he has the original engine in storage and it goes with the car.

I would be very leery about this one though.

The previous owner--from somewhere in east Michigan--perhaps Macomb?) of this 72 HO had it up for sale on the www.carsonline.com website about 3-4 years ago. I spoke to the owner. Nothing was said or written at the time about the original 351-HO motor being pulled and hot-tanked..Something must have happened to the motor for this kind of action to be taken.

Yet, having said that, if an interested buyer was close enough to the car today and could verify the matching numbers motor and the rebuild, then this Mustang is worth a $20K price tag. Bright Blue Metallic is a desirable color; solid lifters with a 4 speed and 4.11 rear make this pony very quick; only 366 HO made in 72 make it rare. I restored a 72 HO in Grabber Blue. It was faster than the 1971 429CJ in the 1/4..

Could be a great investment and a lot of fun for someone.

I thought they only mad the 351 Boss in 1971, and they were only 1806 made?
this is just a 351 HO engine not a Boss.
Please Correct me if I'm wrong Huh

I hate to say this but its R Coded Mustang end of story. Bottom line its not a Boss 351 or a lost Boss(IE 40 year stored barn find). Not really impressed by what a magazine says because its all hearsay and some dude talking about things 40 years ago. We all know how fuzzy memory gets after 40 years.


Rare yes, 1 of 366 yes. Looks like a real nice car and to me without out personally seeing the car I probably would question spending 20k without some serious inspection. I have seen to many of these cars chopped up over the years to know how much hides underneath. Tared floor boards and such


But advertising it as a Lost Boss 351 is serious false advertising. I hope some poor schmo doesn't get screwed and understands exactly what they are buying.

I would want to see the VIN on the fender apron to be absolutely sure but I agree if the numbers check out 20 grand is actually a good deal if you can get it for that.

It is just the way the ad is written that screams "proceed with caution" at me.

My concerns would be the hood pins and no photos of the underside. Buyer beware and see the car in person.

Not 100 percent sure but
I thought in 72 the R code was a drive train only option
So the car being a Mach 1 should have urathane front bumper, dual exh rear valance and that is not the right air cleaner

Agree with BK those hood pins ruined that hood

+1.

72 R codes could be orderd in any body style. So no Boss 351. Very close but not same.
