In search of...
#1
I am in search of my first mustang. And hopefully it is still around. Here is what I know. ...1973 mach 1 blue glow / argent. Standard blue interior with console no folding rear seat. H code FMX trans P/S P/B no A/C. It had damage to right rear quarter when the owner before me backed into a pole. It was pulled straight but evidence should still be visible.
I bought it in 83 and owned it until 85. Sold it to my friend, James Frahm who sold it to another school buddy. He painted the car a darker blue the last time I saw it in 86. It was in Ridgecrest CA 83-88?
Here are a few pics the day I brought it home.
Anyone know this car?
(Sheesh, not sure why the came out upside down, sorry about the headaches)

Good luck locating the car.. Not an easy task these days.. It appears to have had a hard hit in the rear, but would be an easy pull on a frame machine..

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

Wow - that looks a lot like the one Greg (Austin Vert) is selling (upside down and everything - he's in Australia... rofl ) Cool

Good luck finding it - hopefully, it's still around. Are you hoping to have it back for yourself, or just curious if it's still alive and well?

Thanks, hoping to locate it and maybe buy it back or trade for it. At least see if it is doing ok. The hit wasn't too bad we pulled most of it out, no frame damage. I know it's a long shot but if anybody knows where these are hiding is the people on hereWink

Do you happen to remember the VIN number or have it written down on anything? Googling the VIN may turn up something like a recent Ebay sale or Craigslist ad. I am also looking for my first Mustang (a 73 Mach 1, 3F05H253351) that I sold in Anaheim, CA in 1986. I hope it didn't go to the crusher Undecided

That the one thing I have no record on. Didn't think it was important to have back then. I am Going to try to check the plate and see if it shows anything from 33 years ago. Doubt it will come back with any info but I gotta try.

Steve, did your search find anything? Did you do a carfax report? Man, that would be cool if you found it again#
