1973 Mach1 Fastback Project
#1
Hey Gang,
My parts are in and inventory taken. Two truck loads of parts from 5 vendors and only 1 outer tie rod missing, simply amazing! Notified vendor and part sent with no questions asked. I gotta say thanks to CJ Pony, Scotty Strickland (Amazing Ford Enthusiast with over 100 Parts cars) Jegs, Summit Racing and A/C Solutions. The 1973 Project will be in full swing soon thanks to these guys! Majority of the 2 truck loads came from CJ Pony and I'm just lost for words with this company. Hooked me up in ways that I honestly don't think any other company could have or would have, so big MAHALO for that!

Looks like you've got your work cut out for you. I had a lot of luck with CJ's too over the years. They messed up a couple of times, but went out of their way to make it right. Ohio Mustang has helped out a few times too.

That's what its all about eh OLE PONY? Great customer service! My 1971 project (first ever in this scale) didn't go so well. Decided that instead of going with several vendors, I'd go with just one and took a chance with Steve / CJ's and I'm glad I did. After doing the 1971, I think the 1973 will be a blast to do and having the right tools makes it sooo much easier. Already got the tools from the 1971 project so looking forward to an enjoyable rebuild. Wink

Is that the Scotty Strickland in Oxford, North Carolina? Looks like we're going to be seeing a lot on what I did to my car today.

Sure is and even prettier when unboxed and 99% accounted for and none damamged. I've got my full face helmet and bullet proof vest ready for the front coil springs Big Grin Hopefully this rebuild will be as fun as the 71.

Thanks Don! For this build, I'm focusing on interior and engine bay. Exterior will be a daily drive, don't care if the inconsiderate person parked next to me dings the door.

Sure did and Scotty Strickland made sure it Wink Funny guy used christmas wrapping paper to stuff the box.

Yes it is! I needed interior rear quarter panels, A pillers, and lots of other interior parts and engine parts. He sent me a picture of the interior quarter panels and I was immediately sold. Amazing condition for being originals.
I'll more than likely drop in on "what I did to my car today" but may do this build on FordMuscle again. That's where I did my first build and I feel like they've helped me out a lot that it would only be right to do it there again.

ha ha you haven't met the other members then or seen project Pegasus. Mine is chump change compared to what some spend on their engines or professional restoration shops to do the work for them. This is called "Passion and Addiction" Stick around long enough and you'll get what I'm talking about. Just ask Don65stang Wink Seen my toy collection page? This body style has been a passion of mine since the day I could recognize shapes and colors Big Grin I'm now messed up when it comes to watching movies LOL!
