Does anyone need a good laugh???
According to the seller, it used to be an 8 second car. I guess it got caught in some sort of time warp. rofl

Someone spent a crap pile of money with all those body mods. I am sure it was cool to someone at some point.

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.
8 seconds. Was that the 0-60 time? A bit wild for my taste.

Rusty, a 1973 Mach 1, needs a lot of work.
Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.
El Guapo, a 1986 F150, frame-off Resto-Mod.
Bubba, my 1994 F150, daily driver
Formerly, a 1973 Ford Mustang Coupe - a work in progress, then a car-b-qued banana.
I believe the 8 second car part. I could not look at it for longer than 8 seconds.

7.0 liter? Maybe a 427/428? Looks like a FE motor. Maybe eight seconds in the 1/8th mile.

Black 1985 GT
Yellow 1973 Mustang Mach 1
Black 2012 5.0 GT, 6-speed, Brembo brakes, 3.73's
Wimbledon White 1966 F-100 Shortbed Styleside, 390ci, Tremec 3550, FiTech EFI
It was a car - for a period of 8 seconds. Then someone saw this and thought they could get smart with a J.C. Whitney catalog:

It ought to be quite fun turning that car back to stock though - Step one: Peel the banana!

You want to know the unbelievable part of it all? The water outlet / thermostat housing is from a late-1970's 400/351M...

...but it's a wet intake manifold with the hallmarks of a 429/460. And it's got a short radiator shroud (though not original with those raised letters), but I'd highly doubt these turkeys would have been smart enough to realize that 429s use a different shroud if this car had an engine swap from one type to another.

Could it be that underneath all of that crap is a real C-code 429 Mach 1?

EDIT: Doubt it. Steering pump is not from a 429 car.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.
Shame the flux capacitor is missing. Would be a steal at that price.
