Here is the unrestored photo of the car. Bobby writes, I saw a picture of a copper color 74 Mustang mach 1 that I liked, it looked like it was in a wrecking yard. The picture was just on the internet with no information on the location of the car. In the July 2015 issue of Mustang Monthly there was an article on how to buy a classic Mustang. Many of the pictures on information for for the article came from Mustangs ETC. In Van Nuys, CA. In one of the pictures there was a green 69 Mustang coupe project car, Just behind this car I could see the front bumper and header panel of a copper 74 Mustang. I knew that in the other photo I had found of the 74 Mach was the same 69 Mustang. I contacted Arnold Marks at Mustangs Etc. He said he the 74 Mach 1 had been in his storage yard for since 1986. It was parked because of a broken off bolt in the crank shaft. The picture I had found on the internet of the car was old. Since that picture more parts had removed from the car. All of the body side molding had been sold. I bought the car after seeing new pictures of it. Arnold had the car shipped to me. When the car arrived at my house 4th of July weekend 2015 I was able to finally see it in person. The car had 150K miles on it, the the original 2.8L V6 had been replaced with a newer 2.8L and was missing many parts. The drivers side 1/4 panel was full of body filler and had many holes from a dent puller. The right side rocker panel was crushed and the car had many sun damaged parts. The good news was the car no rust other than the battery tray. I love the color of the car and had been wanting a Mustang II Mach 1 for many years. Because the original engine was missing I decided to make the car the way I would have ordered it new in 1974. I added and deleted options to get the car the way I wanted it. Here a are the cars original options and it's new options:
- California Emission
- Testing
- CR70X13 White Sidewall Radial Tires
