Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

I think its kinda cool, but then I really love flames and Gene Winfield style fade away paint jobs.

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

Reminds me of one from my neighborhood when growing up. Known as the "Sundowner" Mach 1 to everyone it was painted a purple/maroon color with a paisley stripe down the side that crossed over the roof. The decklid had a sunset painted on it with the "Sundowner" name and the hood had a tapestry of a sunset on a lake.

One of my classmates had the car given to him for his 16th birthday. When his parents took it to a speed shop to have the engine overhauled before giving it to him, they discovered it was a Boss 351. I went to look at it after the rebuild. Yep, and original R code with yellow paint and stripe terminations in the door jambs. Perfect Mach 1 carpet under the purple shag carpet, and the 4-speed had been replaced by an automatic. Apparently a previous owner had "fixed it up" for his daughter in the 70's , removing the manual setup and painting it in a scheme his daughter would appreciate.

I tried to work a deal for the car with my friend. He said "no thanks" he wanted to keep it. 6 Months later he traded it to a budget car lot for a chevy 4x4 truck. I never did see the car again.

Unfortunate. These airbrush jobs are a bit of history in their own right, and though you can homage them, you can't replicate them.

Repainting it is something akin to restoring a wrecked movie car. All of a sudden, it's no longer identifiable as being the unique thing it is/was.

I meant that someone probably stripped that paint off and painted it red or something

I think the paint is cool! That paint job is 42 years old and is a work of art! I dont know about the cars exist these days, but if I had the chance to buy it I would have keeped it in that color! There are not many left out there who can do a airbrush job like that Smile
