New, from MN
Just found this site. Read for about 2hrs today. Lots of good info. I just bought a 1973 mach one. It is a H code car with the 351c 2bbl. It needs a lot of work and has not run in 8 yrs. It is an incredibly solid car for northern MN. It is my dream car and second attempt at a project. The first project was another solid mach one. It was a M code 71 with extensive body damage from theft. I underestimated the cost of body work and had to sell. This one better suites my mechanical skill set. Decent body in need of mostly mechanical fixing. I paid $1800 for the car. I almost lost it due to a sight unseen offer after I had money down on it. I feel pretty lucky to have still gotten it. I will be reading a lot on this site. I will post some pictures as well. I have no money to start anything heavy and don't expect it to be finished anytime in the next 5 yrs. I should be able to get it on the road by next summer though. Pending what happens when I get the engine running. They said it ran when they parked it. With 98,000mi my hope is high. I will be using the hood I saved off of the 71 I had, it has the twist locks. I look forward to driving this someday.

Welcome to the site from Virginia! Looks like a great buy for $1800. I'm sure you will find plenty of inspiration and tips from the site.
Welcome from Oklahoma.

The car looks like it will clean up very nice. Other than the rear window louvers - the car looks very original (a plus to me).

Good luck as you progress on your journey with this car.

I am not a fan of the louvers. They will for sure not be on there for long!
Welcome from central Wa. Great find for a really good price. Let me know if you like to get rid of the louvers.
