    It was located at a friend’s shop in Elkton, KY. Now it’s at our shop in Hopkinsville, I’m an auto tech. Well now my boss has me working the office and assist out in the shop when needed.

    That’s correct. I saw another guys years ago paint the door pulls to match the shifter bezel. I really like the look. He got the paint number somehow. I’d love to do that myself, but I suck at painting lol.

    Cool, I’m from Paducah. Maybe I’ll see it at a show or cruise in when you’re done.

    Very cool. We use Performance Diesel out Paducah for our turbo rebuilds when needed.

    You've got a lot of work to do, but the end result will undoubtedly be worth the effort. I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the completed and restored Mach.

    Yes sir, she needs a lot of loving, but I want to save her. Engine is priority right now. Body work is being delayed due to my paint guy requiring surgery. I’ve been talking with another shop about potentially doing the body work, but it depends on how long his recovery time is.

    If in the event that you want a K&N FIPK or another flywheel, let me know. I have a few parts leftover from upgrades on my car.

    Thanks, for the offerings. I’ll want a factory CAI for this car at the moment. She’s also missing basically the entire shaker system. I have maybe one small bracket and that’s it.
    I’ll also need a factory radio if anyone has one lying around.

    I've got shaker brackets and an 04 radio (04 is specific because of the satellite button)

    Brackets were removed when I eaton swapped. Radio has been out of the car since 06 or 07. Very long time. Been stored in my closet inside a big ball of bubble wrap ever since.

    Pm me your phone number and ill get some pics to you as soon as I can. May be Thursday before I can get some taken.

    Well, if I can get a JLT, I'd be willing to part with my air intake minus the shaker bits to go to a fellow CO Mach.

    Alright I send you a pm on Thursday.
    On further inspection I think I have the bracket the shaker sits on, but I’ll validate that tomorrow at work.

    I’d appreciate that a great deal! I have nothing in front of the throttle body, besides what I think is the piece that channels in air to the CAI from the fender well area.
    I do have a friend of mine checking at a body shop for potential left over Mach 1 parts. I need the shaker, snorkel from shaker to filter, CAI, snorkel from CAI to throttle body.

    That’s what I was thinking. Put some ATAK’s on my buddy’s C5 and it was stamped on the muffler itself.

    Got a question for you guys. I know the cobra cars have the ability to get a certificate of authenticity through SVT. Do us Mach 1 owner have the ability to get a certificate? I’m wanting to know what number my car is, is the reason for this. The research I’ve done shows there’s about 895 Comp orange manual trans cars.
