Help with Mach 1 purchase...
#1
Looking at a 2F05H that has had the 3512V replaced with a 460 built by Joe Mayabb out of Campton, Kentucky. It was imported into Australia about 4 years ago, never been registered or driven here and that's about all I know. A bit of rust in the trunk and some bog in the driver rear quarter, backyard traction bars and sub-frame connectors.

Here's a few pics:

Anyone familiar with this Mach 1? This is not the original colour, looks like it was originally Grabber Blue.

Cheers...

Thanks Bill, yes, any personal info please PM me.

I'm just after any info anyone might have about this Mach 1, if anyone is familiar with it. Was optimistically hoping someone would say "Hey Mickus, I owned that Mach 1 and it is a killer! We had to replace the rear quarter when I backed into a camel, couldn't see it through the rear window! The Joe Mayabb 460 made 625hp on the dyno but I only drove it to church on weekends, actually that's where I hit the camel. There were 3 of them being ridden by men with beards!" Big Grin

Cheers...

I did some research on Joe Mayabb and uncovered this:

Fastest Naturally Aspirated Stock Suspension Mustang in the Country

After watching this 4.98/146 1/8 run 20 times Big Grin  I found his email address and emailed him. Joe jnr answered my email about an hour later and told me that his dad, Joe snr, had installed the crate engine and shared some more info with me.

And, as it turns out, the 460 has been stroked to 514  thumb  

So, I headed out to take another look at this 72 Mach 1. This time with the tools to get her started. A new battery and a kick in the guts and she fired first time. What a beast, C4 with full manual shift kit and she smokes up in 3rd when you plant it doing 60! rofl

I now have a new addition to the stable Tongue

Well, it's yellow, so it's gotta be good. Smile
