WTB- Fully restored 71-73
#1
Thought I'd come to you guys with this...

A friend of mine, from high school is/has been on the hunt for a Fully Restored 71-73. He is a retired police officer and a true motorhead. His first car was a 73 Mach that he purchased back in the early 80's. 

If you have ever been thinking about selling your car, he is looking for something special. He does not want a project car.(been there done that) He wants one he can enjoy and go to cruises/shows with. He does not buy/sell cars, just wants one to enjoy now that he is retired. $40-60k. Resto mods are not ruled out, if it's done tastefully.

So show me what you've got. I just got off of Facebook with him minutes ago and he was looking at one in Ohio that he may offer 60k for.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb

Boss 351 in CT - might be worth a look. Not 100% correct, but it's a Boss...

As a Boss 351 owner - I too look at that car linked above as a good starting point. Looks like he is a car guy, probably BUILT to perform (read KNOWS to torque nuts and bolts) AND though missing some items could be enjoyed while procuring IF you wanted too!

While most know the wrong distributor and oil dipstick - you can drive with those! Same goes for the truck water pump and Holley carb.

P.S. Having said that ..... I would simply look at the car, confirm it is real SEE that I can live with the drilled firewall (for once installed AC/in the wrong area too) and go from there.

Wow a $60,000 73, lol. I was never offered more than $25,000 for my 73 Mach 1 with 12,200 miles and 32 factory options. What is it I would like to see pictures? I must be nut and bolt perfect for that money.

That CT Boss looks solid but that left fender extension looks bent inward.
