I just got a 73 Mach 1 and it appears to be a "Q code" car, Is there anything special about this car? The man I bought it from wanted to keep the motor and tranny for his pickup, should I hound him for these items? My car buff friends are telling me different stories about the "Q code" does anyone know the real deal?

The Q-code is the 351-4v Cleveland and was the top motor for 73. There is really nothing special about the 73 Q-code. If it is the original motor from the car, I would try to get it unless it is used beyond rebuilding.

69 M code, 4spd, Mach 1(project)

By 73 the 351 4V Q code wa a fairly detuned car to pass emission standards. More "interesting" part is that its very likely that its a 4 bolt main block (everyone I've owned or purchased so far has been) and performance folks are often interested in that part alone. If its the C6 that shouldbe attached to it these are often popular also (refered to as small case C6's)

Hope this helps
