1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Additional Info:

Testing thewaters on our rare 1972 Mach 1 Q code with original 351 Cleveland 4V Cobra Jet engine! The vehicle has 76,000 original miles.

The car underwent a $18,000 restoration in 1996 with 70K on the odometer. We have most of the records for the build and a large stack of receipts to date. Since the restoration,the vehicle has only accumulated 6,000 additional miles. The car has been in a garage or storage unit the whole time, and is onlydriven on nice days. No rain or snow here.

This car has been in the family for about 20 years and belonged to my Father In Law (RIP) who was a Ford retiree. He purchased the car in the late 90's in Las Vegas where he maintained a winter home.He purchased the vehiclefrom amember of the Mustang Club of Las Vegas who was responsible for the restoration a few years prior. We also have the records showing the prior owner wasin Las Vegasin the Henderson County area. Paperwork suggests the vehicle was a baked solid body and drivetrain in need of a restoration. The vehicle was originally sold in Los Angeles dealer region as well, which helps explain why the body is so clean and rust free on thisvehicle.

You will notice Ohio historic plates in the photos. My Father In Law brought the car back to Ohio about 10 years ago so he could drive it in the summer here which is much more mild than Las Vegas!

The vehicle was professionally appraised by Classic & Collectible Cars of Las Vegas at the time of purchase for insurance reasons. The car was rated a "2" as aVery Good quality restoration across the board from all Mechanical & Cosmetic features. This record is included.

The vehicle features the original 351 4V Cobra Jet engine (Q Code) which was arare option for the 1972 model year. The engine was removed during the restoration, repainted, and the top end was rebuilt.This Cobra Jet block features the 4 Bolt Main design which can handle a lot morepower and is more durable for power applications which historicallyhas beenadesirableblock to use forMustang builds and by collectors.You will notice in the pictures that the original 4V carb has been replaced with an aftermarket Edelbrock Performer, and the air intake has been replaced with a Shelby Cobra one. We do not have the original carb or air cleaner box. Engine runs great and theincreased power response is evident in the throttle.

Anothermain difference that was changed as part of the restoration is that the car was originally Silver.The owner really wanted a white car so he chose to paint the car Performance White (Dupont B9444) which was widely used by Ford across several vehicle linesin 1996.Also there is no matteblack finish on the hood. My opinion is that this is a drastic improvement inthe right direction.The paint quality is much better than original and has a nice gloss / enamel look to it. There is no fading or dullness you would see on the factory finishes of the time.

The glass on the car is perfect. Original Carlite side windows and rear windshield in excellent shape. No swirl marks, distortion, fog, or spider marks.
