Oddly optioned 4-speed Mach 1 just purchased last night Good score for me.
This car to start explaining has a 94 D.S.O. (export) It is an M-code 4-speed Code 9 (3.25 open) rear. pewter w/stripes. No ram air (have build sheet) No A/C, No power brakes, does have power steering, power windows, console, tach and gauges, tilt wheel, rim blow, deluxe interior, convenience group, deluxe belts w/warning light, fold down, Am radio, and lastly factory Magnum 500's w/ one center cap still on it.
It has been sitting here in Ut. since 2000 but sat in Colo. for who knows how long before that. I have a Iowa title from 1989 then a Colo. registration from 1993.
I also have more original paperwork the owners maual,operating features,warranty facts booklet, and a paper from ford talking about the 90 day break in coverage with the data plate and dealer code (72H407) info on it and best of all the original purchasers name and date! 8/11/71 I will try to post some pics.

Looks like a very worthwhile car for a restoration. Is that a tilt steering wheel?
That will be one sweet machine when you get it done.

Nice catch! With all those options and no air conditioning, I would suspect it was destined for a cooler climate. Just a guess but another idea would be that many in those days did not want a high performance vehicle with A/C as it robbed the engine of too much power and added a lot of extra weight...

The Marti will be interesting on that one!

I hope you restore it back to its original glory.

So I'm a proud owner of one Mach 1 73! Regards Lars DK73whistling
Nice score.
My understanding is the biggest issue with AC and high revving engines is the compressor can't be spun that fast while operating.

Yes Mike 73 that is tilt you see. I hope to restore it in the next few years, I have missed my red 4-speed car since I sold it to Don65 I should have kept it! But life goes on. I have to finish my 70 Mach 1 before this one. But I couldn't pass it up for the price.
I found this in Clinton So.west of Ogden Mister 4X4 I did construction on that same street a few years ago and had no idea it was there, it was behind his house.
Will E you could get air with a 4-speed but they limited you to a 3.25 gear in hopes it wouldn't be spun to hard all the time.

The power windows all work if you can believe that! It has been wrecked the front clip has been replaced, needs all 4 aprons done, the tilt is stripped on the teeth, the floors and trunk appear to be solid from underneath but I cant open the trunk right now. No key for it fortunately it has the glove box lock so I can take that to a locksmith. The magnums I discovered this morning are mismatched 2 14 2 15 inch I didn't see that in the dark UGH, the original carb is missing at present, may be in the trunk he said there are parts in there. it still has the original distributor though for 4-speed. it also has correct shift knob with the H pattern on top. the underhood light is still there in good shape, overall very nice mostly survivor car.
Thanks for all the positive comments guys!
