1971 Mach I
1971 Mach I, 351-2V Cleveland with FMX automatic transmission. Bought my Mach as a demo with 5,000 miles on it for $2,995 as a GI coming home. The car has never been in winter. It has been repainted one time as "rubbin/waxing" it all this time finally broke through to the primer. Had a good bodyman friend keep it one winter to take apart an repaint apart, then reassemble. The motor, transmission, rear end have never been out of the car. The interior is original with one small hole in the driver's seat back. Have all supporting paper work, including two recall notices; one for o-ring in shoulder harness and the second for transmission could slip out of gear. No fix, just some really ugly stickers to put on the dash. Never did, transmission is fine.

Thank you. I'm glad that I am able to share my toys with others in my hobby. Yes, I'm still a judge. Recently I've judged the 71-73 class in Orlando / Disney.

Great, looking forward to your input on members' questions about originality.

I'd be glad to help where I can. If you are a member of the MCA (Mustang Club of America) you can go on line at mustang.org and access the latest judging rules for any model / year. Also you can look up the gold card judges / head judges phone numbers for the different years as well. Even if you are not an MCA member, you can access judging criteria from 2013 by going into google an typing in MCA Judges Rules 2013. For 1971-73 there is 11 pages to look at.

Thank you, although my wife is not a car person and just considers it a dust collector that is taking up her garage space.

Thank you for your kind words. My Mach is not perfect, but having owned her since new, she's a keeper.

Recently we've moved and now have a 4 car garage with a furnace and a 220 line. Still need to finish insulating the garage and install interior panels/ceiling. Once finished, my plans are to detail the undercarriage of my Mach - then finish my '66 convertible.

Just wanted to add, the pictures of your car's engine bay and interior are very nice.....any pictures of the exterior?

Great looking car! I love that it's exactly the way it drove off the lot. If mine had been a little closer I would have gone that route. It's a great accomplishment to not have something happen to it in 40+ years.

Cheers,

John
