For Sale: 73 Q Code Mach 1 in San Diego,CA
#1
OK, this is a mach 1 a classic car dealer client of mine just got in. And owning a 72 mach and being on a lot of boards as well as the local mustang club I promised him I would help get the word out about it
(plus I get a finders fee if I help sell it,lol)

So as said, it is 73 a Q code 351C (CJ I believe) w/ a C6 Auto, and 53,500 miles on it. (I believe from new but don't quote me)

It is in VERY nice condition. Paint, interior,engine bay are all practically mint! And everything on the car checks out w/ the VIN & Data tag...with the ONE EXCEPTION that the data tag lists the original color of the car as the 5M metallic copper. But as you can see it is painted grabber blue
(which I'm pretty sure they didn't have in 73).

But the paint is still REALLY nice.....to the point it would just about be a crime to think about respraying it or anything even if it is wrong. Plus I'm sure the grabber blue is more popular than copper. So I don't think it hurts the value of the car much, but its just worth noting.

The car runs and drives great. (went for a ride in it myself to take these pics).

And a little side note the car was featured in a mustang/pin-up calendar back in 1995 (which is that thing on the window in a few pics)

He's looking to get $23,950 or so out of it

I'm pretty sure it is,it was originally shipped to/sold in the LA/SoCal Sales region just like mine was (71 DSO)

see, here's the DT on mine. And we ran a marti report on mine and confirmed it to be a CA car, it was even first sold right here in San Diego. Though I'm not sure about where the 73 Q code was actually first sold. I've told him about getting a marti report but he's not really bothered about it.

Nice looking car...the DSO confirms it is a CA car. The air cleaner looks like a 71 at least the sticker on it. Whats the price?

Nice looking car. Matches a convertible I'm very fond of... Anyway, yes it is good to mention the colour change, I think it is actually a '73 colour though. Looks like it could be 1973 code 4N Medium Aqua. The Sherwin Williams Rep that talked to my paint guy said it was only available on Mustangs and Cougars and only in the Mainland U.S. market.
Could affect the value a bit I guess but as you mentioned: it is still a very nice looking car.

If it is a California car, where is the original license plate?

The plate on that car is 95 or so.
