Hi.

Hi.

Had a 72 mach1 in high school. Rusty pile, ruined every inch of it, fixed it (poorly) each time after ruining it, loved it to pieces.

Sold it to 'grow up.' Never did. Regretted it for over 30 years.

Bought a 71. Things have changed, lots of catching up to do. The plethora of parts available now boggles the mind.

Happy to have found this forum. I hope to find some answers, and offer a few when I can.

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. 
Lots of parts but most do not fit, lol. Never toss anything you take off until you have new in hand.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Hi All,

I've been having hell trying to find a rag joint for my 72 Mach 1.  The steering column was a cobbled up Franken-column that barely turned this lovely Mach 1 while on the road much less static.  Anyway, after replacing the power steering gearbox, the pitman arm and all the tie rods minus the center link still came to the realization that it was the Franken-coupling that was to blame.  I've search high and low for a replacement but need help!  Can anyone point me to who might have one?  Its a tilt column and according to West Coast Cougars, its a half round with a center set screw.  Any ideas??  She's currently in a speed shop getting rewired.....separate ordeal![Image: IMG-1324.jpg]

1972 Mach 1 351 Cleveland Ram Air, C6, 9 inch with 3.25 Posi.

Hello from Mississippi.  Glad you found us and decided to stay. Lots of knowledgeable and experienced  members here so never hesitate to ask any  questions, no matter how  foolish they may seem to you.
There are many of us here  who probably wished  they had  a few of the cars they trashed and beat to death back in "Those" days!     Big Grin

Welcome to your new Mustang home.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
