71 Mach 1 from Texas
#1
Hey guys, glad to see a site dedicated to 71-73 mustangs!

I purchased a 71 Mach 1 last October to restore with my dad.
Here's how it looked then.

Just had it painted last month.
Here's how it turned out.

I have to say, driving it for the first time after it was painted was one of the best times of my life so far.
The interior is still in need of restoration.
