You got that right, same here.  lol  It would have had aluminum slots and N50's on the back though.  In the before picture we see the Mustang script on the front fender, and it is of course personal preference to run with the Mach 1 decal in the recent pic.  I do believe though that the Mach 1 with the base 302 would not have had the competition suspension with the staggered shocks.  I'm at the point where I don't get overly critical with the choices on certain cars, because in many cases people bought them that way and perhaps haven't had time or money to remove non-stock features.  Or they like them that way, it's all good as long as someone isn't trying to pass off a tribute type of car for big bucks.  It's more important now to just keep these cars on the road rather than rusting in a junkyard. thumb

 I totally agree with your comments and not my intention to be too critical. My car is far from the way it came out of Ford, but it is presented as perhaps what Mach 1's SHOULD have been from the factory. Besides most of the upgrades I did are for handling and safety, the rest is just "dress-up". As for base Mach's with the 302, I can't comment on that other than I thought  all Mach 1's had comp suspension, but would be interesting to know. I merely mentioned what I noticed in our friends pic to ask the question "did he know it was not likely a Mach 1 as represented"? "What's the VIN??"
Here is a pic of my 72. When I got it in 1980, it was jacked up to the hilt (until I lowered it) on the shackles and it does have aluminum slot wheels.

That pic is awesome- I love seeing these types of cars with the "day 2" mods that we all had back in the day.  In addition to slotted mags with wide tires in the rear and air shocks as well, my GTO back then even had the famous dual side exhaust pipes with Thrush mufflers when I bought it!  I guess that pic was taken in Ontario, and it looks just like the row of homes built around 1960 where my parents still live to this day in Pennsylvania.  Yes I believe someone else posted that the F (302-2V) and H (351-2V) code engine cars did not have the competition suspension, makes sense.  You know it still makes me cringe just a little when I see Mach 1 decals on a convertible, but I'm getting over it.  lol  Again, people might have bought the car that way, there could be clear coat over the decals, or they just didn't get around to sorting those things out yet.  Back in that era (late 70's/early 80's) I certainly would not have known there were no Mach 1 convertibles.  All of my friends also suffered from a general lack of car knowledge, but it made for interesting bench racing discussions.  All we had to go on back then were the car mags of the day, car repair manuals, and word of mouth.

Jean-Pierre that car looks to be in really nice clean shape. You must really get noticed over there, because there can't be too many '71 to '73 Mustangs stalking the streets of France. Wink I am always amazed that there is such an interest in Europe and elsewhere for these old US musclecars. I even saw a '71 Mach 1 one time on a tv show which was filmed in Tehran, Iran! It was Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown Iran which was shown on the CNN network here in the states.

That's right. The majority of French people know the classical Mustang 64-70 but when I go out mine, many of them are very admiring. And not to mention those never seen a 73 of their life... Jawdrop
