Greetings from West TN
#1
I had discovered this forum from the Mach1.com forum and wanted to drop in and introduce myself and gain some new 71-73 Mach 1 contacts. I have had my 72 Mach 1 as my first car at age 15 and have completed a budget restoration in high school so I could drive it. I am now undergoing a complete nuts & bolts restoration. The car just recently underwent extensive frame a sheetmetal replacement to get rid of the ravages of midwest salt where I lived when I bought her in 1984. She has not seen salt since then, but the damage was already done and only progressed over the years while in storage. I will include a few photos to introduce myself. My car was originally sold in Ogden, UT in January 1972, build date of 12/23/71. It was ordered from a customer order and not to inventory. Here are stats on my girl:
3510-2v H-Code
Mach 1
Medium Lime Metallic - 4F
Black Deluxe Interior
Competition Suspension Pkg
AM 8 Track stereo
Front spoiler rear wing
FMX Automatic
9" 3:00 open diff.
Single exhaust
Sport Wheel Covers

I look forward to sharing and learning with the forum as I complete my concours driven restoration.
