thanks the funny thing is at the beginning of the summer my dad went by there to talk to the owner (he had died a few weeks before)no one was there as well as the car so my dad went across the street and that person said the owner died a few weeks ago and sold the car my dad was so mad and sad and a few weeks and or a month later my dad was talking to his friend that's up in Aiken, s.c. and his friend said he got a 71 mach 1 he sent my dad pictures and turns out my dads friend bought the car my dad then went and bought it from him i got my car a few weeks or months later.

That is great news on both counts: That your dad got his car and that the motor is original and complete!
