    My car is a 1973 Mustang Mach 1 which I have owned since 2003. Since I bought the car I have put on the front end of a 1971 Mustang. I have also used the 1971 rear bumper brackets to bring the rear bumper closer to the body. I bought the car off of the original owner in 2003 and he had already done a lot of modifications to it such as replacing the 1973 engine with a 1970 351C 4V and swapping in a fold down rear seat. Since I bought the car I’ve concentrated on making the car a reliable, good-looking driver and it was just painted in May. The Mustang originally came with an FMX but I first put in a toploader and then a TKO 600. The list of work and modifications that I and professional shops have done is extensive and I concentrated on doing the big things first. All I think the car needs are a few minor trim items. The engine runs 180 degrees no matter what the weather except when the a/c is on and then it runs at 190 degrees. I have built this car to be a reliable (daily driver if you wish) car that starts up and settles into idle in less than a minute no matter the outside temp; powerful yet not a pain to drive; well handling, comfortable car.


    I also have a Marti Report, the original dealer invoice, and the build sheet.

    The previous owner got into an accident in the car over 20 years ago and had the passenger rear ¼ panel repaired. When it was done a small gap was left below the door line. Thinking I was going to keep the car until I died I left it as a reminder of the previous owner- he died of brain cancer-an homage as sorts. The guy doing the paint and body told me it was an easy fix with a little body filler but I opted to leave it. And since the car is driven there are a couple of small chips in the paint.

    I am asking $21,000 for the car. PM with any questions. Thanks.



    I have done and have had done so much work to this car over the last 5 years that I am sure I am forgetting some minor details. As I said earlier I have modified this car to be a reliable, fun driver.

    Damn fine car. I know you carefully selected the parts for that car, somebody will get a well sorted out Mustang. Good luck! What's in your future when it sells?

    Thanks, I'm sorry to let it go but circumstances say otherwise. I'm not sure what I'll do next, or even when, at this point.
