The Bullitt would require converting the 1999 Cobra lower front bumper back to a GT Bumper (might be able to use the earlier 94-95 with some slight mods grafted to the 99 upper) and a hood scoop modified from one of the 87-89GT Mustangs from AMT/MPC and sit on the modified Cobra hood. Wheels could be either the 2008 Bullitts with a slight lip added or a set of aftermarket Torques.

As to the Mach 1, well.............I am still working on a parts list/fit for that!


Yep...above my paygrade just a bit,at least until I gt back into it...one does loose a bit when off the bench a year or more,LOL! Sounds doale though,and I have most of the parts. Thanks :)

I'd LOVE to see those Mach I wheels in scale. :rolleyes:


Me too! I wouldn't mind seeing them on my '94 in 1:1 too,LOL! :D :P

Know what's funny? There's a local guy who has an early '80's Mopar (Diplomat or 5th Avenue) with the Bullitt wheels on it. :D

Talk to Casey, he casts a set of 'Modern Magnum' wheels in 20" that look VERY close to the 2003-04 Mach1 wheel. Tell him I sent you!

Casey does excellent wheels; I have 4 sets of the 'Modern Magnums' and a few other sets he does. VERY clean castings, well worth the price of admission. I am looking at sending a few sets out for chrome plating here shortly.

wale392 any update on olskoolrodders question about converting 99cobra into 03,04 MACH1? I love the mach1s and have 1/1 70 & 73 .Would have to win lottery to purchase a 1/1 03 mach1 to add to my collection. I guess I'll have to settle for the 1/25 verstion for now.

Well, I don't have one that I'm currently working on, but if I decide to start one, I have plenty of these things to choose from. They somehow multiplied.

I'm definitely getting in on this. I'll build one just like mine! Or maybe I'll pay homage to "Vanessa"- oh, I miss that car....

I've been working on the Mustang Mach III for a little while and thought since it is a direct decedent to this group of Mustangs I'd post some of the build here.

So here is my fat bottom girl the Mustang Mach III


There she sits with two cotes of color

Fitting the interior tub into the body

Posted Image

I don't have any photos to show this next issue but after fitting the tub in place which fit nicely in the cockpit area I found that the engine compartment walls didn't match up with the body. There was almost a 3/16 inch gap. Using some clamps, a soft rag to protect the finish and some CA glue I forced the kit to see things my way

Posted Image

Posted Image

I rarely win any arguments with my models but I won this one.

Posted Image

Time to mount the body and interior on the chassis.

Posted Image

Well things are back to normal. I lost the battle with this one but not the war. The cost was that the front suspension fell off the car.

Posted Image

Posted Image

As I tried to remount the front suspension another issue arose that I wasn't suspecting. For some unknown reason the front of the car was riding high. Sorry no pics

After lots and lots of fiddling it appeared that the springs and shocks were topping out in the wheel wells so I chopped them down a bit and remounted the front suspension. It helped a little but not as much as I hoped

Posted Image

The only other thing I could come up with to lower the front was to start shaving the frame where the cross member meets the frame. I also ended up grinding down the frame. the amount of plastic removed does not accurately reflect the height the car was lowered but it is a bit better.
