Hi
#1
Just joined today. I inherited my Dad's '73 Q code Mach1. It's in good shape for a midwest car, but had a quick paint job with some bad body work done before my Dad bought it, so I will eventually be fixing that... It's a 20 footer for now.

Dad said that he remembered watching it compete in stock class drag racing when it was new. He bought it in 1992, and didn't do much but barely run a tank of gas through it a year. The mileage is accurate as far as we could tell.

The original motor was freshened up by the previous owner, as was the C6. It is said to have 3.89 gears. It needs suspension, exhaust, and ignition work. I'm planning on a mild resto-mod, and just enjoying it. Here's my starting point.

Welcome, as Mark said we're a diverse bunch here but all love the big bodied mustangs. By the way that is a cool mustang.

HI and welcome to the forum.
That Mustang looks like a solid basis to start from. A a mild resto-mod is always a good thing. There are a few of those here.
Have fun on the site.

Welcome to the site from Virginia! Nice looking Mach 1 and I like the color combo. I couldn't quite see the whole wheel, but are those the original optional Aluminum wheels? Definitely worth fixing up.

WELCOME aboard!

As a couple others have said, it appears that you have a GREAT starting point with your '73 mach 1.

I look forward to interacting with you on the different Forums and reading of your "journey."

Again, Welcome to the Site.
