What year is best (It has to be done)
#1
Okay, for a little fun. I know we all love these cars and there isn't THAT much difference between the years... but what's your favorite.. and why??
I picked '73. I like the front bumper and the grill lights. On a convertible I think they look the best.

I said 73 for obvious reasons. But the biggest reason is they seem to be less common and in my mind that is cool because I don't like to follow the masses on what I like. A slightly smaller reason is because it was the original Elanor.

71 because that's the year I was born. Also more engine choices.

Even though I've owned two '73 s I voted for the '71 as the best year because the horsepower of the engines was higher. You had the 429 SCJ and the Boss 351C.

71 hands down. (1) first year (2) 429-CJ-SCJ (3) Boss 351 (4) 351 4V with Ram Air, dropped for 72. That's why the 71 is the best year except for the 72 R code 351 HO. (5) Do you ever see 71-72s looking like 73 Mach 1s NO. But how many times do you see 73s looking like 71s.

The 73 has my vote, since I've owned mine since 1974 how could I vote otherwise!

'71 and not just because I own one. Bought the car for a set of wheels and then found what I had. Around May 1971 the EPA determined we were having too much fun and began to put the clamps on. Fortunately, my M-code was bucked in March.

71 here although mine is a 72. more power in the 71's and also the year I was bornTongue but then again they where probably building the 72's in 71 {I was born in november } One reason for me not picking the 73 was the bumpers. I liked the option of having the mach grill or standard grill. I like the standard grill because the pony is huge and more visible.
