Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

124,500 and still purrs like a kitten...but it is an Auto so probably hasn't had the hard use many 5spds have!
I only drive it once or twice a week and an occasional trip to the track,still strong mid 13's!

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

Just bought mine with a little over 95,500, bone stock. Runs just as good as a friend of mine with 39k on his Mach. Just did the basic maintenance stuff, not that it needed it, and it runs like a champ.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

Not quite 16k. I swear I'm trying to drive it more. It used to see some track time but now she sits a lot. Typically use now - I grab my son in and we cruise to the parts store for stuff for his 88 GT or to the drive-through for chocolate shake. Good times.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

148,389 here. No major issue. Starter, hub, and clutch (actually was just the throw out bearing) only things that was replaced. I'm not easy on the car by no means. I love this car.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

It's always nice to see these cars driven and enjoyed. Most of them still look almost like new too. I say drive them and enjoy them. Let the next guy worry around a restoration.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

I'm around the 80k mark. Ill be sure to post a picture when it gets to 80085. I bought it 4 years ago with 46k. How can a person roll it out of a garage wipe it with a cloth and roll it back in the garage. In my opinion thats no fun at all. Except for the time when the fuel pump crapped out on the highway going 70 every mile has been great.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

getting closer to 7000 original miles.
So glad to see that they last as long as they do.
Also have had this conversation with many car guys when I was looking for a mach or cobra.
The more I drive it the better,,, after it got driven 40 miles a year till I bought it in June.
I am thankfull that the original owner saved it for me.still smells new!
Going to drive it and enjoy while I am here.
It may be the last car i buy do to the fact i cant stand the new junk with NO throttle cable!

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

My first one I bought in August 2003. Still a daily driver but has a very tired 200,393 mile 4.6L with auto trans. Car still looks terrific and I'm getting ready to put a new motor in it. Its all original too with the exception of some exterior add on's: Visus Louvers, smoked tails, aluminum fuel door, honeycomb rear panels and Sequential tail lights. Everything still works! My other one is also a 2003, highly modified, MINT, has less than 61K miles and has a manual trans, (T56/Whippled) garage kept/covered.

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

Any of you guys have any tick issues.
these heads are prone to problems just curious.
Was told the tick is annoying but won't make the engine blow by any means

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

Am I allowed to revive an old thread?

125k miles on my 04' 5 speed. Had to replace the clutch (TOB) last week, but runs great! The suspension is worn out, but some new springs and shocks/struts should fix that. I hope fixing the suspension helps the interior squeaks and rattles, oyyyyy vey!

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

My only car and has been daily driven for the last 12 years and still to this day. Right around 113,000 on it now. Drives smooth but things are definitely starting to wear out somewhere. She's a magician the way she makes oil disappear into thin air

Re: Highest Mileage Mach 1

132k on mine. Original owner had the fuel pump and/or sending unit replaced and I had the oil cooler housing gasket replaced. Otherwise, she runs like a sewing machine and still gives my buddy's '04 blown GT fits from a roll!
