March Calendar Car – Mustang
Our Calendar car for March - the Ford Mustang Mach 1
Our 2019 Calendar car for March was Mark’s incredible and beautiful brute – the Ford Mustang Mach 1.
“I was fortunate enough to have a mid-career break back in 2010 and always wanted to restore a classic.” He says. “This 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 came up on eBay requiring a lot of work and I thought it would be an ideal project as Mustang parts are quite easily available albeit mainly from the states.
“Two years – and several replacement body panels including rear quarters, floor pans and bonnet – later and the car was finally on the road.
“The engine is a 351 Cleveland linked to the original FMX cruise-o-matic 3-speed box. The carb was upgraded to a Holley 4-barrel, otherwise I’ve tried to keep the car as original as possible.
“The Mach 1 gets a lot of attention where ever it goes and it was a Mach 1 that featured in the famous Las Vegas car chase in James Bond’s Diamonds are Forever.
“While I don’t think I would ever sell the car, if I had to swap with a car in the calendar it would be the amazing Bugatti Veyron.”
