It’s back! 71 Mach 1
#1
The gentlemen I painted the mustang for last winter has brought it back for a little more work. Nothing too crazy. I will have to repair 2 dents in the hood and a scratch. Also wants me to install a petronix kit in his original dizzy. Check front turn signals. Get horn working properly. And fix a squeaky belt.  Overall the car looks great!

 Mine too, a 1 of 6 in Light Pewter. No ps, pb, drums on all 4 corners, am radio, basic 1A interior and nothing else either........... BUT a PO added the black-out and side stripes as well as Magnum 500 wheels. I retained all of that when it was repainted as that is what a Mach 1 should  have looked like from the factory in my humble opinion.

 On the Pertronix ignition kit, my strong suggestion would be to use the Pertronix Ignitor II and the matching Flamethrower coil. You probably have read past post from me on this and the issues I had with the Ignitor III. Pertronix took back the Ignitor III and replaced it with the above. This of course is unless they have recently redesigned the stupid plastic "bearing" they had between the two plates. If that is the case, then the Ignitor III has excellent electronics. It was just a shame that this bearing thing on the Ford application was so badly constructed.
Just from my experience and my 2 cents worth
The car looks great though and just like mine was from the factory.

Thanks Geoff!
I installed the pertonix kit last night. Took all about 10 minutes. Its the original Petronix 1.  Very simple and easy to install.  Hooked the 2 wires up to the coil, hit the key and she purred like a kitten.

 That's great news. The P 1 is the simplest as it can run on resisted voltage or so they tell me. Why anyone wants to keep points is beyond me unless it's a concours trailer queen and needed for judging.

Yeah Roy, this one was pretty solid to start with but did have a lot of unseen rust. Heres a link to the build from last year if you missed it!
