Hello everyone
#1
Hi, I'm handling the restoration of my grandmothers mach 1. She originally bought the car in 1972 as her very first new car with what I've found to be a very odd combination of options and perhaps factory persuasion. I'm still waiting on the marti reports but some things are just odd. She babied the car until she loaned it to her brother and for insurance signed it over to him. It took almost 20 years to get it back but she did and it had become a 3x wrecked mess left to sit in the yard. As she nears her 70's her husband has decided to restore it for her and I'm the one to guide it along. I've been working with this vehicle for the last ten years now, as when it was reacquired almost nothing was available but NOS parts but finally its nearly done with new parts available every day. I'll be posting a few questions I'm sure but I've been through a lot of sources and if I can help anyone find anything I'd be happy to help.
