Mexican 73 Mustang Mach 1
#1
Could someone help me in this, I am looking at 73 Mustang Mach 1 in California area and seller sent me the attached door tag which he states its Mexican Tag. He painted it fresh with original paint scheme. its 4 speed factory. According to him its 1 of 7 fastback mach 1's built in Mexico and 3 are known to have made it to the US. Could someone decode the data code. How rare are they?

You should be able to search the Forum and find some pretty good info on them. I didn't think they were that rare? There were several color combinations also. Seems like green, blue, tan and red I guess. I think they were all 4 speed cars and had 351 windsor engines in them. Ray I believe put a link to a web site with info on them here also. They would be rare in the U.S. and probably not many sold in Mexico either. It was like the Sprint package for Mexico. I have always like the two tone paint jobs they used.
Do a search lots of info will come up I posted some pictures I found of them in the past also.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Well, it certainly looks like a nice car.  That paint job looks a little "embellished" to be a factory paint job.  The black-out on the hood isn't even close to the factory black-out, and even on the other models, the lower two-tone color never transitioned to the front bumper (they were always main-body colored).

There are also some non-original things in the other pictures (non-factory air cleaner, valve covers, etc.,) which says, "Rare, but not '$50K-valuable rare'," to me.

I'd still love to have a set of those monster Mach 1 decals, though.  Not for my car - just to have 'em. Wink
