Mach ! Resurrection

So I recently purchased a Mach 1 roller with approx. 42xxx klms on the car, the car was with the previous owner since 2005....A turn of bad luck with a local speed shop left the car less a complete drive train....luckily the body and specific Mach stuff was all there....moving forward I have a complete drive train and suspension for the car...........so lets resurrect this bad boy!

I will update with pics as we go along...... need to upload them..lol

First I started by cleaning out the engine bay of the dirt as it sat for almost two years...... before this the car was garage kept and as you can see it amazing condition!

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

So if any you have done the auto swap you"ll know that the floor is slightly different from the auto version, here's the additional trans tunnel that Ford installs as its need for the standard trans as it sits higher up.....drill the spot welds out and clean away the seem sealer and she come out, clean up the tunnel around the opening and used self edging primer to seal it up, gotta get the template made up for the auto and gonna weld her back in and paint Azura blue once in....here's what she looks like so far.

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

well started the temp plate for the floor for the auto shifter, I used a stainless steel plate and decided on using speed clip to secure it down, once the final shape was a nice tight over lay I used a paper temp plate from auto car to locate the hole for the auto shifter, test fit it first with the console and its a perfect match, remove the shift and seem sealed it, then placed the plate down and bolted in place, what ya see is the finished product.
only took me 4 hrs...lol

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

well waiting for the power distribution harness I purchased to arrive to complete the electrical, I decided to tackle the auto portion of the build, since I have a manual pcm harness I needed to intergrade the auto wires into the harness and into its pin locations into the factory connector at the pcm, I have a auto pcm just in case your wondering

here's a pic of the Mid pipe I made for this set up a few years back as The haeders I'm running are mid length and required a custom one, believe it or not that mid pipe is two Dodge ram tail pipes modified...lol

Finally the car is off the hoist and I can finish off the wiring on ground level as all the underneath is complete.
those wheels are temporary as I have a set of 18X9 Mach wheels coming for it, think I might just have the rear widened to 10.5 from weld craft, just wanna see the turn around time..

Re: Mach ! Resurrection

Custom midpipe looks good. I've always wondered that about certain manufacturers out there that sell 'mid length' headers. Always wondered if you had to buy the midpipe that THEY sell for it to work.
