I am a new member and very happy to find this group.  I purchased a 1973 Mach1 last month.  It is a Q code, 4 speed, with an open 3:25 differential.  It runs and drives very nice.  With the exception of the side pipes it is unmolested and complete.  I have always been a huge Mustang fan ever since I was a child.  I like all the early years and some later.  My first ride in a Mustang was in my oldest brothers 1971 coupe with a 351 Cleveland and it left a lasting impression.  He purchased a 1969 Fastback after the ‘71.  I bought the ‘69 from him in the summer of 1985 when I was 15 getting ready to turn 16 in the fall.  I still own the ‘69 after all these years but I have always wanted a 71-73.  My wife also really likes the 71-73( always helps to have her onboard).  I am excited to finally own one of these cars.  I have a lot of work ahead of me with this car and will need lots of help and information.     Thanks Chris

Looks like a great project car. Good luck with your restoration and post lots of pictures as you go. I had Thrush side pipes on my first 73 stang back in the 70s.
