New from Colorado!!
#1
Hi All! I'm a new guy from Colorado, but certainly not new to the hobby. I've been very active with truck, suburban, blazer, and miscellaneous projects. And, while I do not presently own a Mustang, I am gathering some information on a 1972 Mach I I'm currently looking into.

So, I have a friend who wants me to buy, or help him sell, his '72 Mach I. If my understanding is correct, it's a "Q" car, 351, 4-speed, Tach, excellent tin, good interior, many new parts available, and virtually NO rust outside of some very minor surface oxidation. My friend is the second owner and knows the PO. This Mach I is a woman driven, never wrecked, and never damaged car. The original 351, top-loader 4-speed, and front end are all available and will be included in the sale.

What would someone expect to pay for a car this straight! Thanks in advance for any help!!

Normally a "Heartbeat" kind of guy...but, I have some Ford questions. And, as was pointed out to me...maybe there's a little "Blue Oval" lurking in there somewhere! Huh

Welcome from coastal Alabama!

Looks like a rust free, Q-code, 4-speed, tint, tilt, PS, PDB, standard interior, mini-console, sport rear seat, instrumentation group,AM radio, and 15" rims with dog dish and trim rings. Did I miss anything? Functional ram air hood maybe?

A car like that is worth a lot more than the average Mach 1.

I think you pretty well hit it! Here's the hood. And, I'm told the stripes on the magazine cover car are supposed to be on this Mach I. (I can't tell you why they aren't on the car now, because I've been told by a VERY reliable source the car has never been wrecked.) I've been researching the Mach I cars of this era to try and determine a realistic value. Ran across this very nice site and joined!

Non functional ram air hood. You car did not come from the factory with the hockey stripes. See the bright metal trim separating the gold glow color from the lower black? If it has that then it didn't come from the factory with hockey stripes.

Btw, the 15" trim rings are very HARD to find so be careful with them. Hopefully they are all there.

welcome From San Diego. Looks like a great car to restore. I don't think the wheels are 15s from the pics,but I could be wrong. I would say it's worth 5k no less than 3k maybe more need more details.
