(4 photos of a 1974 Medium Copper Mach 1 Mustang Hatchback) This Medium Copper (Chestnut) 1974 Mach 1 is owned by Bobby Aldrich and is our Attitude of the Week starting August 28, 2017. Bobby writes, I bought my 1974 Mustang Mach1 project car from Arnold Marks at Mustangs Etc. in Van Nuys, CA. in July of 2015. The car had been sitting with 152K and a broken off crank pulley bolt since 1986. I had the car shipped to me after seeing a few pictures of it. I love the original cooper color with tan interior. I like my cars some what stock looking. I found the engine was not original to the car and with all of the parts that were missing, I decided to added and delete options to make the car the way I would have ordered it in 1974. It had a 2.8L V6, C/4, A/C, P/S, PB and a 6 3/4" rear end with 3:55 gears. The options I chose were a 2.3L that gave you a $ 229 credit when ordered on the Mach 1. A 4 speed, PB, No A/C or P/S, a 8" rear end with 3:00 gears. Ford didn't offer 3:00 in 74 I just had to have the freeway gears, console, clock, deluxe door panels, rear sway bar and a AM FM 8 track stereo. I also added aftermarket rear window louvers. I've done all of the work on the car myself and made all of the changes the way they would have been done at the factory, I used all of the correct parts including wire harnesses. I used NOS and reproduction parts when I could find them and reconditioned used parts when I had to. 1974 Mustangs are even rare among Mustang II's in 2016. I have found the 1974's have many unique one year only parts. I will use the car for weekend driving and car shows along with my
four other Mustang II's.|
(1 photo of a 1974 Mach 1 Paper Car Mustang Promotional Sales Brochure) Here is the cardboard cut-out at full size. Print this on heavy paper or attach it to heavier paper before cutting it out. Save the image to your harddrive or click here to remove all the borders for printing. The original card was designed to snap out the car along perforations, you'll have to use a scissors. Its a little hard to tell, but the only white tab on the left and right side of the car is on the bottom (make sure you cut out the inside the the wheels next to this tab so that when the tab is folded, the wheels don't fold with it). Tab C is attached to the hood, Tab B is attached to the front window, and Tab A is connected to the rear window/hatch not the side windows. Cut along the inside of each of the tires to separate them from the bottom tab which is folded back. Also make sure you cut far enough up the side of the rear window, along the roof, to allow the rear window to fit properly. The bottom side of the front license plate also needs to be cut out. Pre-bend along each dotted line before gluing. Refer to Figure 1 shown in the top right. Glue the car together in stages, allowing the glue to dry between. We also have a 2011 Paper Mustang.
