My Rare Find

When you are already neck deep in a full restoration the past thing you need is to buy another car but I couldn't pass this one up.


My local MAC tool dealer was looking for someone to rebuild the carburetor on his girlfriends car. I heard about this and since me and carburetors are old friends I started talking to him about it. Turns out that this carburetor is the original Autolite 2100 on her 38,000 mile 64 1/2 Mustang and she's getting it rebuilt in order to sell the car.


He has my full attention at this point.....


I was invited to come look the car over and check out the carburetor and I knew I had to buy this rare unrestored gem........

Welcome to VMF.
That thing is perfect......... I'd have bought it too.

Is it a three speed? I worry about the single reservoir Brake master cylinder. I would make sure the brakes are real good.. Very nice car, I also this 100% stock is the way to keep it.

It's OK, I figured you were joking. 30 years ago I would have been dropping in a 351 and a 4-speed and run the crap out of it. Like I said, my 2+2 will be my hot rod Mustang.

Yes, 3-speed. I don't think a 4-speed was an option on the 260 cars.


I am no fan of the single pot reservoirs but in the spirit of originality, it is staying. The entire brake system has been gone-through, flushed out and a new master cylinder and wheel cylinders have been installed along with new hardware and shoes. It drives like new. Suspension is tight and with the windows up there is hardly any wind noise. It's an amazing experience.

It's all in fun. I would have a hard time modifying that car. I would still do it, but I would be cringing. I'm glad when I bought my car it was a rotting shell on the side of a hill somewhere. I was able to poke holes wherever I felt it needed one. I didn't even bother to look up any particulars (Marti report) on my car until I was already on my way to modifying it. I didn't know it was a real Mach1 (which doesn't mean that much) until about 1/3rd of the way into the build. I brought this car back from near death so I have no guilt doing with it as I please.
