Uptight is an understatement.  Most of the 'vintage' guys around these parts are pretty cool, but haven't exactly been embracing me and mine, despite the fact that one of them even has a '69 Shelby GT-500 (where do ya think the inspiration for some major styling cues came from, anyway?).  One guy with a '69 Sportsroof he's owned since new is my new best friend at the car shows, so it's all good.

Ain't nuthin' wrong with making an H-Code your own - it's not like they didn't make more of them than just about any other, after all.

Can't wait to see this unfold!

You really jumped into your project. Now some questions for you? In 1972 & 73 Ford dropped the optional color of Black from the list of colors, too much hand work. You could however order black by a Special Order. If your car was originally black and a Mach 1 then the chrome front bumper is correct. They did not have the correct paint for the rubber front bumper. I hope you looked for your build sheet when you took the interior out. The build sheet will list any special build items on the bottom half of the sheet. Your DSO code will also be 6 digits, first two numbers are the DSO and last four cover the Special Order. If you order a Marti he cannot tell you the color of your car he did not get the DSO Special Order Paint & Trim info. He can get you a copy of the window sticker and invoice that will list the Special Paint order which is usually around $85.00.
I am interested to know what you find. I have a Black 73 vert that was Special Order.

Hey Carolina!  This stang was not a special order.  It had white paint out of Dearborn, MI.  Nothing special on the Marti Report.  Kansas City DSO.  Sold to Southtown Motors in KC.  It came with a FMX transmission but now has a fresh rebuilt C6.  I opted not to get the dealer invoice as the costs were mounting for the parts yet to come.  the latest fiasco was the shot wiring.  Tried to start it after 8 months on jacks in my garage and smoke came billowing out from under the dash.  I'm currently getting it rewired.  I could do it myself since I am a licensed electrician but am fed up and the Speed Shop that i took it to will have it out in a few days.  Then test the brakes then front alignment then inspection then license renewal.  I might be able to enjoy it in two weeks!

Almost finished!  New wiring for the entire stang in progress.  Will be testing brakes and getting an alignment soon.  Will be on the road soon after that!

Not sure why you want the 4300D, they require a lot of care to keep them running. By converting an H code to a Q code you're obviously not worried about originality or concourse. You would have better spent your money on an aftermarket manifold and a good Quickfuel, Holley or Summit carburetor.

The rebuilt Autolite 4600Ds that have been rebuilt by Pony Carbs, now owned by Champion Carburetor, have been rebuilt with all its shortcomings engineered out. I want to keep the flavor of the 1970's intact.  The originality of this Mach 1 was already worked out by its previous owners.  The original 2V carb and intake were replaced by Edelbrock 4V carb and intake.  The color was originally white so very little was original.  The object is to make a damn good looking performer with the 70s tech.....albeit with a new Comp Cams roller cam, lifters and rockers......so on the outside, no one will know!

Lot more to a Q-code than just an intake and head swap.

No problem-ay.....the rebuilt 4300Ds from Pony Carb have all the inherent problems engineered out.  The rest will be accomplished with new Comp Cams kit with roller everything.....Will keep you posted.  The wiring is shot so currently getting that all replaced.
