1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1
This is my first crack at restoring a 1971-1973 Mach 1. Originally was an H-Code, 351-2v, medium green metallic. I put a 429-4v from a 1969 Thunderbird into it for additional power. Added AC, Grabber Green paint job, black Mach 1 interior, stripes and decals, spoilers, honeycomb grille, pop-off gas cap, Flowmasters and dual exhausts. I drove it for an episode of the Great American Muscle Car in 2002. Even though it had the monster 429 motor, it was not as fast as the 71 M Code, 351-4v or the 72 R Code, 351 HO. I've seen it on e-bay a few times since then. Learned a lot about these vehicles on this my first try.

Looks good, are you tempted to buy it back yet?

Per your question, no I'm not tempted to buy it back. The paint job on this car was 10+. But I was not impressed with the 429 motor. It is "the wedge" version of Ford's 429, the type put in 60's Thunderbirds and Lincolns. Nothing close to the 71 429 CJ/SCJ. And, what is more, it was a one-wheeled wonder.

But it was fun creating the car, nonetheless.
