72 Q Mach one mild resto starting

Hi there, just got my baby last month, very rough, blown piston, blown head, big crash on driver's side quarter panel, not salvageable, so far I rebuilt the engine, cut the quarter panel an installed rear metal parts, I got a salvaged quarter panel for it, working on cutting it right, I am mediocre at this but I have made them street worthy for my friends before, my turn now.

Looks like a nice project. Would like to see more pictures. I see Grabber Blue under the black, is that the original color? I'm currently working on a 72 Grabber Blue Mach also. Ryan

Look's like a great project. Keep up the good work. Build on this post with some more pictures.thumbgoodpost

Thanks, is great to know that some other people love this generation of ponies, it is originally grabber blue but the previous owner decided to fully back it out, I love to keep them original but I dream of a white Mach 1 so i'll commit that sin, more pics coming on my days off, mon tues.
Keep up the good work. I say paint it the color that makes you happy. If it's a keeper. If you plan to sell I would go with the original color for max value.

This one i'm not letting go, it will stay with me forever, I dream with this cars, forgot to mention that interior is complete, in very good shape, it had brand new transmission with Hurst shifter and rear end reconstructed modded too, just body work/paint and ready for Las Vegas roads.
This is a video from two weeks ago when i put the engine in,
Now i butched the quarter panel
