Fast on the road, would pass anything but a gas station
Like any American car of the 60's and 70's, I could watch it rust. Other than that, nothing major. But little things kept happening. External oil from the sending unit to the heads, kept breaking. What a stupid idea for that.
I could not keep the interior in decent shape. The plastic moldings kept breaking.
Other than that, it was a reliable car.
That 351C was a strong engine. Rated higher than the 72 or 73 in hp and torque. Ford rated them lower and turned them down because of the insurance companies and federal regulations.
It is by far, the nicest looking car I have ever owned. All the striping and Grabber Green. It was the color that first drew me to it. Not many of them out there, I had to have it. Most of the Mach I's were Red, Silver, Grabber Blue or Black.
Since I saw my first Mustang before the Christmas of 64, I wanted one. I was 6 when the Mustang came out, and 11 years later I had one. I bought it at 17.
There was only one other kid in school that had a car as nice. My buddy's '69 Roadrunner. We were kings.
Biggest mistake I ever made was trading it in for a '75 Elite. That was the worst car I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
