I agree with that. Ford really did a good job pimping these cars out from the start. I think that it was when they changed marketing strategy from old men to young men and women.

Great looking car, I'd love to find one like that some day.

Has the hood been replaced??

It looks like there is red paint under the blue.

factory red oxide primer?

i'm trying to figure out what the bell is on the apron?

very cool find. you have a lot of work to restore that car. i would recommend you build it the way you want otherwise you may lose interest and not finish it.

The "bell" looks like a siren for an alarm system.

So I got the Mach 1 running for the most part. I found out today that he radiator has a hole in it. So I brought a new one today. Also replaced the starter, alternator, battery, intake, carb, rewired the ingition switch and coil. Replaced the gas tank, had a couple holes in it. Now just a bunch of small things. I just want to get it to the point where I can drive it for a while and have fun with it. I noticed that my alt gauge is stuck in the middle and doesn't move. The fuel gauge isint reading eaither. But anyways here's a quick video of it running. The exhaust has a hole so it's a little smokey. Lol

if you don't plan on redoing the engine and haven't done so already, then consider pulling the valve covers and replacing the valve seals. they are probably hard as a rock and maybe starting to break.

+1 on valve seals. Proabably contributing to your smoke.
