71 Mach 1 named Sue
#1
So I'm relatively new to the forums, and to my mustang. I picked up a 71 mach 1 a few months back. I've asked a few questions here, but I'm finally getting underway with the work. In the middle of rear body work, it will be a long journey. I'm learning a lot and having fun. I had a 67 a few years back, but it's amazing how many differences a few years make. Anyway, I'll be logging the work here:

I would love any advice on the 71's to look out for. Like I said, more familiar with the 67's. First things first....what color will it be???

Welcome! This is a great site with lots of helpful info! Color = whatever you like. What was the original color / interior combo? A marti report will tell you how your car came from the factory.

The cowl area under the dash is usually the worst spot on 71-73's. No replacement parts are out there. Oh sorry welcome

Welcome to the club, James! Glad you found us.

I'm fond of the Blue Blow Metallic for some reason Tongue, but that's just me. The build sheet might be in good enough shape to tell you the original color. Looks like a great project - keep us posted.
