'73 Mach 1 for $40 k. REVISED JUNE 24th.
« on: March 10, 2020, 12:40:28 PM »
O K folks - luv 'em or hate 'em ?  Genuine '73 Mach 1 - last of the first gen cars, built in December 1972.
Moving back to N Z and can't take it with me.   :cry:

VIN is 3F05H155490.  Check Mackay Rod & Custom Club Facebook for local ad & photos. Scroll down to March 17th.
Currently listed on Mackay Region GUMTREE cars for sale up to July 2nd.

Please see link below kindly added by a member here.

Still LHD and has been refreshed using original items ( e.g. date correct radio & steering wheel ) or endorsed repro parts.
New deluxe door panels & front seats re-upholstered, full Mach 1 options including gauges, fold down rear seat, working a/c,
p s, p b, 351 C, 4V Ram - air intake, twin exhaust, FMX, 9 " standard rear, 15" Chrome Magnum 500's, with good tyres.

If you are seriously / genuinely interested, please pick up the 'phone and talk to me.  Can email more pics & details on request.   Prefer to sell in Queensland for easy re-location and D o T compliance etc.  Balance of Qld rego to Jan 2021 included in price.

Priced at $40 k ex Mackay, Qld.  Prepared to discuss justifiable offers subject to inspection & test drive.
Current exchange rate will mean not too many of these cars imported in near future - no depreciation, money in the bank.

'phone number is 07 4954 9465.  Call any day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Please leave a message if not answered.  I'll get back to you.
Thanks for going through all this.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi, if you're having trouble posting photos it may help to take a photo from further out then crop it reduce the MB.
I've done this before and it's helped.
Cheers Phil.

 Seeking constructive feedback on this ad please.

To date, 529 views here, 1277 on Gumtree.  But no tangible replies.  What's the problem ? 

No photos on this ad - too much trouble to check others ?
Is the price too high ? 
Do folks just not like the 71 - 73 models ?
Don't like the colour ?
Too far away from major markets ?
Bad time financial stress to buy collector cars ?

Will be on carsales.com next so any advice welcomed.  Send P M if you prefer.
Thanks to all.

If you are having trouble putting photos on here, at least put a link to the photos on other sites.

Not feasible to take it back with you to NZ? The Mustang club, classic car and hotrod scene is pretty strong over there as I'm sure you'd know.  :cheers:  Yours is a nice looking Stang to be sure, in a stand-out colour IMO.

Thanks for the kind words.  By adding freight to the cost so far I'd be in a deeper hole.  I was Pres of Auckland Mustang club for a few years and still keep in touch with some current owners.  Also aware of the B S involved in taking a car in so have decided it is not worth the hassle.  Looking for a good home here with someone who will keep up the T L C and do it justice.

Apologies for a long reply to a simple response.
All good.
