Holy crap! I just noticed that in the color pic with the close-up of the T-Bird....check out where those propane tanks are mounted on that Ford pickup camper shell. In a head-on wreck those things would become missiles.

Here she is today, badly in need of restoration. Trying to buy it back now! She still has the wheels I put on her 40 years ago!



I love the yellow, shaker and white interior. Back in the day it was so luxurious for a performance Mach 1. M Code 351c with a c6. Spent hours working on and detailing this car!!!!

What's funny is everyone going on about their business and a smashed car within a stone's throw. Not like today with camera phones clicking away, crowds and media.

Could he provide a current picture of it? Would be cool to see it today!
I almost bought a 70 Mach 1 yellow with white interior in CA back in 86. Just needed a new C6 tranny which I couldn't afford. Would love to have it now!

@72FordGTS; oh yeah, got a lot of pictures of that one, in a album, in a box, somewhere...LOL  I'll try to find a few.  '73 Q-code, yellow w/ginger "comfort weave" interior, and full gauges.  I sold it when I thought it was time to become "responsible".Embarrassed As for the caddy, brand-new '85 Coupe DeVille with the 8-6-4 motor option, black w/tan leather interior.  My dad's car, all the way.  And I think My mom's Escort 4-door was parked in front of the Cougar.

Well Joe, I wish I still had my '74! They are great cars, more refined than the '72. Here is my old '74, my '70 Mach 1, and my Dad's '73 which my brother and I called "the green bomb", feb/march 1978.
 
Your dad was right; the Torino was a better choice. Blew a freeze plug and cracked the block in that Mach right after I bought it!

Truth be known, I didn't like my '76 at all when I bought it. I wanted a Camaro or Mustang and my Dad insisted I go look at this car and just use it as a temporary vehicle until I found a suitable pony car. I paid $1,050.00 plus tax and title for it in December of 1980. Ended up costing $1,111.11. I NEVER dreamed I'd still have it all these years later.

My dad showed Me this the other day, and it kills me.  in 1985, my dad pulled me out of my '73 Mach 1(Upper right corner) for speeding, and stuck me in this-1977 Cougar XR-7, bucket seat/console/floor shift, rebuilt 351w 2bbl.  I HATED the car back then.  Wish I had it now.  It was immaculate.Unhappy
