I have a 71 convertible that is in great shape and I love the car, but one thing is missing, its not original. The identification plate or sticker is missing, and i really don't know much about the car except that it used to be green, now its white with a blue interior. I found a 73 Mach 1 with no motor or transmission, and was thinking of converting my 71 into a Mach 1, the Mach 1 is in decent shape and now that I own it, its hard to tear out the dash and such just to stick it in my 71. Is the Mach 1 worth restoring without a motor and transmission? Or since both cars are incomplete anyway, should I just combine them?

If you love your 71 Convertible, don't worry about it being "original". Keep it for a daily driver, then work on restoring the 73.
But's that's how I ended up with my "collection" of 'stangs!


You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!!!

65 289 4-spd Conv - Rangoon Red (what else)
66 Shelby - Red and Ready to be Restored

yes I agree.. Clean up the Mach and put it in a dry place. Work on it with your
grandchildren.
