1973 Mach 1
According to the paperwork, the engine and transmission were overhauled in 1998 ( about 26,000 miles ago). At this point, I don't know exactly what cams or gears are in it. It currently has an Edelbrock Performer intake & 600 cfm carb #1406, Petronix Ignitor II and Hedman LT headers with Flowmaster 40's. Had the ram air box installed using a 1/2 spacer and changed the wheels to 15" magnum 500's (7" front 8" rear).

All of the restoration work was done by "The Auto Hut" in Annville, Pa. because I don't have the "know how" or the skill to do it myself.

That looks like a real nice project Bill.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Very nice car but your rear spoiler is mounted backwards. It's an airfoil and the thick side goes to the front and the thin side goes to the rear.

Excellent car ! Do you like the Edelbrock Air Gap intake with the 600 CFM carb ? I plan to get the same combo for my 72.
Thanks.

Yeah, that's a sweet looking ride. When I had my Mach 1 my plan was to repaint it that color combo. (It got wrecked before I got the chance). I like it!
