Wishing you all good luck with this investment Manu.
I hope it turns out to be what you want.
A good upgrade would be to replace the passenger seat with one
from a old station wagon. They reclined all the way to make
a better one person bed for your new home. ;-)

Manu Mach1;265682 Wrote:HEHE some good news, the vendor and me could find a price. For sure this mexican car is not made for north of Europe, either north of America, no heater.
Tim, I see on the pics that a few things look different as non mexican ones, like the air cover, the water box (to clean the windshield), those 2 details are really from mexican models. But if you see something else, let me know. From the vendor, he said, no rust, engine runs good, interior is new...

For sure I need someone who could check the car, I know you are around 700 miles from there, but if you have a friend who could...

This car can't be delivered from there to my place, too too far, the cost is too much, so I plan to drive with my brother and rent a trailer to pick it up. We are very close to make the deal.
After this trip, I will probably find my stuff in the garden when I'll be back, my wife is not happy about that, but this Mach 1 is white, and a Toploader, my dream!!!
My new house will be my next car?

We'll see...

Next episode very soon.

Thanks for your enthousiasm Smile

Phone call with the seller done for you and also two phone calls with you... thumb

It was a pleasure to hear you in person and talk to each other despite the bad phone connection... Wink

If you need more support give a call - I am at free disposal Wink

For the others here:

It seems to be an original mexican car (got the VIN) with some specific mexican parts missing but enough hints left to prove it in overall quite good condition for the money.

If everything goes well I will meet Manu soon on his road trip and make the visit together to assure he will get a good car.

+1 for Timachone who helped me a lot in this smexican story when he called the seller and asked him about the car.
We know now this car comes from Mexico and was there for years before been exported to Europe, and will be in France soon.

Thank you Tim Wink

(Don't worry my wife will never know it was your fault)

Wonder why the seller just inserted the car at mobile.de for 24.900 EUR ?

RE: '73 Mach1 made in Mexico

Manu Mach1, with timachone's help I sure hope this deal goes through.
The steering wheel is a Ford corporate wheel that was used starting in the late 70's through the 80's. That wheel appears to be the one that was used in the truck line.
Since that car appears to have the tachometer, then the only way for it to have a clock would to have been ordered with the optional long console.
I'm sure Tim will help you pick up your things out of the garden. If you do end up sleeping in your "New" car, let me know. I have some reclining bucket seats out of a Fox Mustang GT that are comfortable and will be fine until your are allowed back in the house! Cool

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
