Hi! from Dallas, Texas!!!
#1
Thanks for the add to the forum!!! I've been a fan of the 1971-73's for a couple of decades and have owned a handful of cars and purchased many parts cars when were they available. My current car is a Boss 351 clone. I inherited it from one of my best friends, who passed away from lung cancer several years ago. We found the car in the 90's and he bought it, put it in his garage and never really did anything with it. After he passed away his wife gave me the car and told me that Everett would have wanted me to have it and restore to the way I wanted. So that what I did. This is my "keeper" car, for the obvious reasons.

It started out as a standard Sportsroof with the following options:
351C 2-V
FMX Trans
Power Steering
A/C
Power Disc Brakes

Here's the kicker:
Ginger Mach I Sports Interior!

It basically had everything a Mach I should have, just not the "05" in the VIN.

It hadn't been driven since 1984 and had 62K on the odometer. I pulled the engine out and I have it on a stand in my garage. I added a fold down rear seat assembly to complete the interior to my liking. I changed it to black interior. When we found the car, it was from the original owner and it is an original Dallas car, sold at a dealership which is no longer around. It still had the original plug wires, battery cables and fan belts on the engine. And the original shocks as well. I took pics of all of this stuff before I started disassembly.
