Invoice for my 73 Mach 1
#1
When I bought my 73 from it's previous owner, he included the original invoice he tracked down. It's no Marti, but it's pretty interesting.

The car now is red, not pewter, and is now a 4v not a 2v when the guy redid everything in 1993-4.

He did a lot of work to this car and I am not a person who could do any of this myself, so I was interested in getting a car that was already redone. I plan to do little things, and I give you guys who are doing your restorations yourself a ton of credit.

Oddly, the 3/4 vinyl top is what I love about it. I had never seen one before in my area and it stuck out from the 10 or so I looked at before deciding. I am 2 days older than the car. ha ha

Anything to you all that stick out as unusual?

That is the Eminger invoice, very rare.
It is real ink, mine has actual pencil marks
where items were checked off.
If you can get one for your car I think it is the
best document you can own.
Mine says 12gals for $4, but that was 1971.

That's a cool document to have for the car

Another cool document would be the original IBM punch cards
used to produce the build sheet. The numbers at the top of a
Marti report correspond to the punch cards. Marti said they had
an original card machine that needed repair work which is hard to
find and expensive. Marti said if there was an interest in punch
cards they would consider getting the machine fixed.

Both gas and new cars have gone up faster than the CPI inflation index.
The equivelent in 2012 dollars:
gas = $2.07/gal
Mach 1 = $21K

1971 Mach1
351C-4v
C6 is history-->>now TKO-500
