My 73 Mach1
#1
Hi here a couple of pictures of my Mach 1. I bought the car from my uncle 9 years ago. He caught the car off of eBay. The car has a 302 automatic trans, Air, and a fold down rear seat. Right now it has just the standard hood. I added the front and rear spoilers when i first fixed it up. Today I started cleaning up under the hood. I'm taking off the chrome valve covers and open element filter and putting the stock ones back on. Also I'm removing the air conditioning. It doesn't work. The car came with a folder that had alot of maintenance records of work done to it. I found out that the Air had been fixed 2 or 3 times. So it doesn't look like it ever really work.

c4 trans? keep searching along this and you'll quickly find out you can swap in a t5 transmission.

get all the applicable stuff from www.moderndriveline.com and then get the hydralic clutch system from www.americanpowertrain.com. (t5 set up in our cars can be fairly inexpensive)

welcome to the site! can anybody tell i'm excited to hear from one of our members after the visit of greg for the hydraulic system?

I really like the dog dish and beauty rings. I was thinking about changing them but I'm liking the look right now.
