Trying to take inventory and have SOME of the parts laid out on pallets. New door panels, new upholstery with new seat cushions, a couple of stripe kits, numerous bolt kits, new exhaust tips, new door catches, new trim pieces. The van is about half empty now. I have all the seats, new Mustang emblems for the sail panels. I'll post the rest later. Long day at work and just about to leave the office...

I wanted to get the car on the lift but just not enough time...

Well, the F150 is a 4x4 but you can never have too many...:grin2::pirate::yoho:

Why stop there? While you're converting it to a 4x4 you could cut off that goofy looking sloped roof, open up the trunk area and install a truck bed.

Get rid of the F150. This would serve all your car/truck needs.


That's a great looking car. Should be a fun project.

Okay, I'll show some bad now. The engine is date code 0J3 (heads are 0J17 and 0J19), the rear end is 0DE (3.00 where it should be 3.25) and the transmission is a FMX transmission (aluminum tail shaft, iron body, aluminum bell) but I can't find a tag on it. Appears to be a 70's drivetrain.

The other picture is of the floor pans. Not to my liking even though the picture makes them look ok.

The paint is about a 15 footer although it was repainted then stored (just too many flaws).

I did not get the shaker in the deal (she told me today when I inquired about buying it separate that she paid 2k for it in '02). I also didn't get a hood tach (although she had it as well).

Outside of that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?

None of the above are deal breakers but also not the deal of the century. A good deal, in my opinion, still yes, but I think the OEM (new looking ) shaker would have made it much better...

A few more pictures...

The new hood pins, refurbed the pop open cap and new door handles. All the new parts came with the car. I also installed new hood trim.

Another bad, I decided to drain the oil as I still can't get the engine to turn. the first half gallon was water...NOT good.

A 3.0 open diff was standard for a Mach 1. Also, I think an FMX was the typical automatic for a Mach 1. Not a great trans. Good reason for a TKO-600 swap. :smile2:

Not great news, but I would expect any project car to require a complete engine rebuild.

So sorry to hear about the water in the engine oil. Some floor rust would be expected, but water in the oil, sad. Hopefully the engine can be rebuilt. Kind of makes you want to stop looking at the condition of the car for fear of what you will find. I have to ask, have you performed the water test on the cowl? That is where the rust was hidden on my 70 Mach 1.

I think it's safe to say that P7 is what has this engine seized up...

Is the factory color lime gold?? If so I’m even more envious. At one time I didn’t like the color but now it’s one of my favorites.

I’m trying to look on my phone at pic 7 and can’t make what it is. Looks like a blob of $πιτ
