I agree on both counts!
If the Mach is the base 351, the standard rear valance would be correct, any other optional engine would get the cut-out valance with chrome oval exhaust tips. A complete new part would be the best solution with the honeycomb panel and pop open gas cap. Lets see..wheel covers, grille, standard scoop, shaker, engine parts,door panels, seats, possibly the exhaust system, quickly adds up to quite a few parts! Don't forget about the Mustang emblems above the Mach trim on the front fenders! I guess this and the trunk Mach 1 letters will give the photoetch guys something to sell! Wouldn't a photoetch grille be something excellent for this car??
I really miss my 1:1 2003 Mach! Azure Blue, automatic ran 13.47 bone stock with just over 10k on the odometer...
If I start converting a 99 Cobra kit to a Mach, the probability of getting a 2003-2004 Mach kit goes up greatly!
From what I gather from last week's iHobby show is that it is a stock 351, not a 428. I didn't get too many details, the builder of the Mach I said the production hood scoop would be much better than what was seen on his boxart buildup at the show.
A friend of mine Eric Cole, also on this forum (Eric C??) has an Azure blue '03 w/5 speed that I've driven several times. Fun car, much faster than a stock GT. If nobody else does a Mach I conversion we may attempt it; the hardest thing to figure out are the wheels. We're hoping someone else comes along w/more time and fewer projects and makes it easy on us so we can just buy a resin conversion. Or hope that Revell makes it in styrene so we save some serious time and $$.
