1972 Mach 1 Time Capsule
Of all the 1971-1972 Mach 1's I have restored and wish I had not sold and remains my favorite--hands down--is this original 1972 Mach 1 in Gold Glow, Q Code, 351-4v, 4 speed Hurst, black Mach 1 interior, A/C, with only 37,000 original miles. This Mach 1 was purchased as a HS graduation gift for a young lady in eastern Ohio. Shortly after (1973) she was given the car as a gift, the father returned it to the Ford dealership (some family issue). The car sat under cover in the body shop for 15 years (1973-1988). Two owners later, I found it and brought it back to its showroom look. Interior was perfect. I refreshed the engine bay, trunk, undercarriage. From the picture, can you spot something on the vehicle that makes it absolutely unique? Never seen this option since.

I've seen the vinyl roof before, so not quite sure what it is. Your right, should have held onto that one!

Great observer. You hit it right. This Mach 1 had the super rare 1/4 black vinyl top (different from the 73 models which ran back further to the rear of the roof). The vinyl started at the windshield; included the A Pillar posts, and ran just back of the driver and passenger window. Vinyl was in perfect condition. Shazaam.

Beat me to it. That vinyl top popped out immediately BECAUSE it's so distinctive! That is sweet.

Tim,

Another very nice car. Of course I love the color. The answer has already been given and my shot at it would have been the top although I would have never guessed it was that rare of an option. Great find and restore.

Much obliged for all the nice comments on this time-capsule pony. You all can grieve with me over having to move it on to a high roller in Dallas.

One of the pix of the car (which you can see) was taken at a Mustang Round-up/Pony Trail at NPD in Ocala, Florida. Jeff Ford, former editor of Mustang Monthly, was there with his totally restored yellow 1972 Mach 1 Q Code with ginger interior. The restoration project--tracked in photos in Mustang Monthly--was titled, "The Lazarus Project."(nice, huh)
His personalized Florida license plate (see photo) read: "Come 4th". Thought that was pretty cool. Regards, Tim
