Hello from Tucson
#1
Hi y'all,

Just moved down to Tucson from Boston with a 1973 Mach 1 that I am rebuilding. The guy i bought it from tried to turn it into a drag racer and failed.

It is not in horrible shape, but needs work.

351C 2v (fresh rebuild)
Edlebrock Performer intake and 1406 4 barrel carb
Long pip exhaust manifold/headers
FMX transmission (minus the neutral safety)

I have rewired... correction... attempted to rewire the car, but I am chalking it up to a learning moment. It runs and works, but I will definitely go through and rewire again (with a new kit) once I get down to the frame and blast everything.

If anyone knows a media blaster in the Tucson area and a body shop (welding/patch work) or can help me do it myself, that would be much appreciated.
