Default Mach 1 Question

Does anyone know how the 03 AUTO Mach1s are rated? I was just looking around and saw one for 19k with 32kmiles on it. I think thats pretty good. What do you guys think?

pretty sure its the same as the 5 speeds. the main difference is the autos dont have the forged crank like the 5 speeds and has a lower redline. 305 hp, but substantially under-rated i believe.

If ya bang around the 5 speed long enough, the syncros in the tranny go out. GT's (post mid 01) have the same tranny so same "problem" as well.

If you run a search I'm pretty sure someone did an unofficial poll on time to syncro loss.

As far as an auto is concerned, same as prev posted, but since I drive a 5 spd, I wouldn't want the shifting fun taken away from me

the 5 speed is the way to go, but an auto would not disapoint you. the only downside is the crank, and since its not forged, your redline will drop a bit. but either way those 4 valves will make easy and great power compared to the 2v. go mach either way. i wish i did

Those Mach 1's are really nice. I think I would rather have one over a Cobra actually as an automatic is something I would need due to a bad back. mark

How much slower is the auto mach than the stick? If i trade in the car (for a 4v) it might be a good idea to go with a slushbox if its not much slower then the stick. I have bad knee problems in my left knee. Those king cobra clutches really get to you after a while. You could always do a crank swap later on.

Ford Automatics are complete garbage.

You can get a high performance soft pedal clutch...

Anyways, IMO 19k for a 32k mile Mach 1 is really pricey.

When I was looking for cars, I was finding 10-20k mile Mach 1's for less than $22,000.

Ya you can probably find a 5 sp for less money if you look harder. Theres better deals out there for sure.
