just finished to completly stripped the mach 1, as i tough its a big project, it needs rears quarter panels, trunk floor, rear complete frame rails/torque boxes, full lenght floors, 1 door skin, some work on the top, and battery tray, front fenders

the only problems i see are : find wheelhouses (or makes them), and make new floors for the rear seats (over the torque boxes)

next week i will sandblast all the rear of the car (high performance sandblast !!!)

i was also really surpsised how this car is solid (the center bent and rockers panels are in perfect shape)

what do you think of it ? wasting time ?? paid 0$ for it....with a lot of parts


heres the pics

very ambitious, but the starting price is right and i can certainly see the potential. As far as wasting time, as long as youre having fun while working on it, then theres really no wasted time, even if you end up moving on to something else. Time spent restoring is never wasted.

In all honesty I think you cut out too much at one time. How are you going to line up all the rear panels/rails now?

You should have seen how wide my eyes got when I saw the second pic. I thought the first was a bit scary, but the second completely caught me by surprise. Good luck with it.

Good luck. It looks like a good start to me. I have seen worse and have restored worse Fords than that.
We have a 63 1/2 Galaxie in our shop right now and all I can say is "It's a good thing glass doesn't rust". So your car looks great compared to what I have to look at every day.
That's a great project.
