Justin's 1973 Mach 1 "Q" Code
#1
Well I picked up my 13 year old son's first car this past weekend. Yes, he wanted a 1971-73 Mach 1 Mustang for his first vehicle. We had just about settled on a 1971 Mach 1 302/3 speed manual with a 1971 fastback as a parts car. When a buddy of mine sent me some pictures of a 1973 Mach 1 "Q" code 2 hours closer and the same money. I finally got in touch with the owner and he told me it was sold. I was somewhat distraught over the missed opportunity. One day later the owner calls me and said the buyer backed out. That was a great call in itself but then he lowered the price by $500 bucks. Well here is the project that my son and I will be undertaking. Oh! I bought the car for $3500.

I ordered the Deluxe Marti Report today. I think the Ivy Glow paint and Avocado interior might be somewhat unique but we will see. Ivy Glow/C4 paint was new for 1973. I guess we will wait and see.

Lately with both my 17 year old and 13 year old playing Jr. High and HS baseball time has been at a premium. We have managed to change out the battery cables and solenoid. Trying to get ready to drop a battery in it to check compression and possibly crank the beast.
