Matvex's 72 Mach 1
Hi all, Thought id start a blog on my car. probably a little while away before I will make a start on it. I've never attempted a restoration on a car in the poor condition as my car is but always wanted to learn how to do the more difficult tasks in car restoration eg welding, bodywork etc. Here's a pic of the car and purchase receipt.

Nicely optioned car. Good luck on the restoration and I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your progress. Don't hesitate asking questions. lots of help is available here.

351C 4V cc heads, 10.5 : 1 CR, 290 Herbert cam, Flat top forged pistons, forged connecting rods, Atomic efi,
C6 with Gear Vendor overdrive, 3.89 Tru Trac, Hooker Super Comp with 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust.        

Some Mod pictures can be seen at:

Ok check this invoice for my convertible. Pay close attention to DATE INVOICE PREPARED and SHIP THROUGH data fields. Compare with yours!

What is the body side tape stripe option relative to a Mach 1? Didn't the Machs already come with a side stripe?

1972 Q Code Convertible
Nope. You could order a Mach1 without stripes. In that case they had a chrome molding above the rocker panel blackout.

Yeah there was a few goodies inside the car. I think the ram air set up is a reproduction though but better then nothing. This car is third in line for a restoration so it'll be a while before i get to it.

Question to the forum..

How clued up are the non Australian members on our Australian Muscle Cars?
