According to the vin you posted in the other thread it's a sportsroof. The "02" after the "f" indicates that. The "M" indicates a high compression 4v 351C, it's also a ram air model, which surprisingly wasn't ordered as a mach1. Pretty sweet ride and if you do get a marti I bet it would be interesting to see!

I broke down and ordered the report.

With an M code ram-air car I would keep her original!

thanks for the imput! I am waiting on my full marti report to get all the ins and outs of this car but if her value is better at factory spect that's what i'll do.

For 1971 and 1972 the only way to get the hood pins I believe was for it to have functional ram air. So if those hood pins are original that's what it means!

Very nice car, I love them in that color

Glad you sprang for the Marti report. A M code sportsroof (02) would have been a really neat 'sleeper' back in the day. Sorta plain jane but with some power under the hood. It would have also helped the owner to avoid the terribly high insurance rates that ins co's were forcing on the muscle cars back in that era. For these reasons alone it is a neat car and I would suggest keeping it as original as possible. You won't see many like it - especially kept close to stock as possible. But I am more of a purist and really appreciate the work and research it takes to put one back/restore in that way.

Nice car. I agree with Ray and suggest you keep it stock. An 02 coded fastback with an M code engine is indeed a real sleeper.

thanks for all the input the only things I was considering were changing the dummy lights to a factory tach or a good reproduction and switching the center console to the one with factory gauge pods. and keeping the 351 but building it into a 500 hp motor if possible wile keeping it look factory under the hood and going to a deeper gear with posi trac it pulls like crazy from 30 to 100 but it's a dog off the line falls on its face I like the factory look but if I can keep it and get better performance id like that and im selling the outlaw two wheels and putting magnum 500's on it with the 3 spoked spinner centers.
