We had to strip out 1973 Mach 1 to continue the restoration process. It is a small part in the overall process, but we had to get as much done as possible before we sent it back to our restorer for the next stage.
1973 Mach 1 Mustang Restoration - improved
A short video journey along the 18 months it took us to restore a bent and
rusting red wreck into a race car for the World's ultimate tarmac rally -
Targa Tasmania. This video is missing a lot, as you can imagine with a
complete restoration, but it does contain footage of the day we bought the
car right up to the recently completed Targa Wrest Point 2010 tarmac rally
- without a crash.
We need to recognise John Biggelaar (near Launceston) our amazing restorer,
and Warren and the boys at Gorringes (in North Hobart), who took on a
monumental mechanical task and succeeded. And of course my wife and kids
who have shown understanding, tolerance and passion.

Removing rust from the frame of a dodge truck in this video.
Well thank you to everyone that has been following our project. We're
really excited to release this video of the Mustang. We've finally accomplished
all of the metal work to our satisfaction with structural strength as our
main focus. Our next step is fine tuning the panels for fitment, then many
many many hours of bodywork to great ready for paint.
We are doing a video, documenting this entire project which entails
grafting the body of a 1970 Mach1 onto a complete platform of a 2006 Mustang GT 4.6 5-speed. Our
goal is to build redesign, and fabricate etc. a 1970 Mach1 body onto a full
2006 platform which includes ALL Mechanical,electrical,safety,suspension
drive train, and all technical attributes of a 2006. The end result will be
you walk up to this vehicle which appears to be a beautifully restored Mach
1 in every respect. You then open the door than, -Voila-! you've
transcended into 2006. You open the Hood or look under the car it's all
2006. Finally, you get behind the wheel and drive away and it's 2006.

stripe application on 1973 mustang mach1
The application of a NOS vinyl stripe-kit bought 20 years before. The paper
on the kit was completly dehydrated. Application was done by a profesional
using a dry method. The result is perfect!
New gauges in our 1973 Mach 1 Mustang
Our new gauges are working and looking sweet. This is actually the first
ime I have seen them. They have replaced the original gauges because they
failed on Day 1 of Targa Tasmania 2010. We lost our speedo, tacho and oil
These ones are the NExus range from Autometer. They have a remote control,
can change color, dim, calibrate, etc. And they have a flashing warning
system that can be set to any measurement. The tacho is set to flash at
0rpm in this vid so you can see.
These cost a bomb, but are awesome and worth every cent. They fit into the
original gauge clusters with a bit of a trim and some backing plates. It
all worked very well, and was put together by Matt. We couldn't have done
any of the wiring without him. Cheers Matt.
After driving for a bit, we have dicovered that the gauge cluster is not
ver visible with the racing wheel, which is smaller than the original by
2". So I will probably have to rebuild an entire carbon fiber dash insert
to house these amazing gauges. What a pity ... :-)
