I'm about to buy a 1972 Mach-1. The car is located quite far from me and I won't be able to get the VIN-number until then.
But I have pictures of it and now I need to know how I can tell if it is a Mach-1 or "just" a fastback.
Did the doors have different handles on the Mach-1 inside the door? What kind of steeringwheel was mounted on the 1972 Mach-1? Was the rearwing standard on the Mach-1?

I have pictures of the cars interior and exteriors, but since it have been repainted (ugly) none of the decals are left.

Can I find the VIN-number anywhere else than on the door?

Up by the Windshield drivers side next to the daash there should be a cutout with the vin in it. You see it by looking on the outside of the car towards the bottom of the glass.
No rear wings were not standard.

The body code in the VIN will be 05 if it is a Mach.They are the 3&4 digits in the VIN.

The other place that can be checked is pull a fender back and on the shock tower the Vin is stamped and should match the title....Good luck. What's the vin and many will help decipher the code.

Thanks everybody!

I got the VIN-code, it's 2F05H155311

I guess it's a Mach-1 after all? Since I've seen a "ordinary" fastback and this interior looked exactly like it. Different steeringwheel, the inside of the doors. Also no back-spoiler and different gasolinelid made me think twice...
