1970 Mach 1 San Jose built Dec 23 1969. Marti says 1 of 7. Purchased in 1987. Original family owner of the powertrain 351C 2v FMX.


1993 GT 11,000 miles, Built 2-12-93 Auto, 3:27 Axle, cloth, sunroof. Untouched except for rubber and battery, Purchased new 8-3-93. still has the factory windshield fluid and new car smell.

But then again, you didn't specify which year.... (OK, you did say Vintage. So this will make you appreciate those of us with taste!)

I like colors & setups that are not common. Like my 67 factory Clearwater Aqua. BTW. most women LOVE this color.

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!

Hands down, 1968 Highland Green. You could paint anything that color and I would like it.
