72 Q code
#1
runninpony 
I found a Q code mach 1 on craigslist today. It is badly badly burned, but the front clip is still completely intact. I think the guy will sell it to me $1500. I can get disk brakes, nasa hood mach 1 grill and the 351c out of it for my 72 fastback, or i can try to go the other way with it but that way involves pretty much cutting the back off and welding mine on. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Put the mach 1 parts on your car.

I'd definitely try to negotiate a better price but yeah...sounds like a great deal to at least score some parts!

I might try to talk him lower but it on one of those almost a car dealership lots so he is going to be stubborn. Factoring in all the parts and what they would cost individually though it is a good deal the brakes plus the grill is more than that for me out here. I forgot to mention its a four speed trans as well which is something i was looking for. But we'll see if i can swing my budget that way or not.

A good tranny is around 800 around here with no bell housing or anything else. Just take cash and flash $100 bills people seem to deal better that way, when they no you are serious and have the cash.

Yes, I believe that is a good price (based on your description) and I would jump ALL over it. It appears you may have some VERY desirable parts.

Don't forget about the rear end. With that 4 speed, it probably has a "posi" in it too. Even if the rear is not usable, it is still a good deal in my estimation.

Do the RIGHT thing.

If the cars is a western car with no rust the front clip has value to some guys here on this site. cowl fender ext frame rails. Does the car have rubber front bumper that worth some bucks. The 4V motor alone you could make money back or just make your car really cool. Mike.

Hard to beat that price IF the fire fighting chemicals did not invade and ruin the engine or transmission.
