I couldn't resist.....great deal on a 7400 mile one owner Mach. Pretty much stock except for some 40 Series Flows.

Out of the garage for a few pics.

I own an 03 Mach 1. The first thing you will notice, is that most of the time you will hit a wall going from 2nd to third at any RPMs over 5 grand if it is a 5 speed. I had to have the clutch beefed up, and put in a Steeda shifter to solve the problem.

The clutch & shifter stopped you from going past 5k rpm? ::

Hmmm....I'll keep that in mind, but I don't have such issues.

Is THAT why you're selling your FB?

Congrats! But the black ones LOOK faster :: The 3rd gear problem is in the "speed slamming mode" :: In normal driving conditions it works just fine.

You're killing me. I want an 03 or 04 so bad I can taste it.

I'm really not a newbie. My old user name was PONY2178 with over 200 posts. I forgot my password and changed e-mail address and had to start over.

Thanks for the feedback all.

This seems to be a great performance car. Very refined yet still with plenty of power. Potential for 325+ at the rear wheels is just a few boltons away. Handles like it's on rails. Leather interior and Mach 460 sound is awesome.

Right now it only has some 40 Series Flows on it (by PO) and they sound pretty mean.

With only 7400 miles on the ticker and at $19k, I thought it was a good deal. And the Azure Blue is a clean looking color!
