1972 mach1 30 year affair
#1
I've owned this beauty since 1984 but I've known the car since it was first delivered to the local Ford dealership in July of 1972. It's a Q code 351 backed by a top loader 4 speed. The interior is a deluxe sports interior with silver accents and a full length console. Magnum 500 wheels on the corners. I've added a few options over the years like the 1971 flip down gas cap. I've kept it this long and have no plans of ever parting with it until they bury me. I hope to live a long time.

Nice looking car, don't blame you for not wanting to part with it. I have the same feelings about mine.

Such a great story and very nice looking ride.

It's a shame that you can't take it out today.

Maybe you need to move west or south to be able to enjoy it year round.

Very nice car.

Another original owner! Great resource to help us understand how the cars were delivered when new.

Where are you headed in N.C.? I live in the western part in Hendersonville. I have 8 Mustangs and will be glad to see more coming.
Beautiful I don't know why I didn't order green.
