1971 Mach 1 M Code Grabber Lime
This 1971 Mach 1 in Grabber Lime was from the beginning a Florida car. Birthed in Metuchen, NJ (1T05M...) rather than Dearborn, MI (1F05M...). Every nut and bolt from bumper to bumper was removed and refinished. Motor and tranny overhauled from top to bottom. It had a black Mach 1 interior with 3-spoke rim blow steering wheel, C-6 tranny, A/C, Ram-Air (I installed a manual switch--with Mach 1 knobs--under the dash to activate the system. This way I could activate the Ram Air anytime without jumping on the gas pedal). I drove this Mach 1 as a daily driver for an entire year here in Florida. But the constant rain and almost daily violent thunderstorms in summertime here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida drove me absolutely crazy. So, I let the Mach 1 go to a building contractor in Richmond, VA. I was happy when he told me the car was much nicer than I had described it.

Great looking Mach! Richmond is only about an hour from me so if I ever see it driving around I'll know where it came from. It will definitely will be noticeable.

That is a nice car Tim. I do like your current car better though, The blue and argent is a great color combination and the quality of your work is REAL nice.

Hey Guys:

I do appreciate all your comments on this Grabber Green Mach 1. Thank you so much. Wish i could see this vehicle again, but Richmond is a bit far. I do have a son in law school at Univ. Of Virginia in Charlottesville, but that too is a bit distant. Regards, Tim
