Please tell more about the H2B and the 1971-73 Mustang Mach 1. I also spot an Edsel behind the Mach 1.

Those model Mustangs were cool but extremely hard to see out the rear glass with the sports roof slant back. My uncle had a brown '73. Thanks for the info Steve!

First rule in Italian driving, rip the rear view mirrors off the car, what is behind you, is no longer important.

Mach 1, 351 Cleveland, canted valve small block, even more fun, Boss 429 with 385 series canted valve 429 engine.

Fredsel, UGLY, especially the grille, and, they had a push button gear shift selector, mounted in the center of the steering wheel. Very strange.

Yes, it's from Ralf, there are tons of triple pics on Facebook almost on a daily basis. The Mustang is probably a 72, as the 73 had the foam covered bumpers. I had a 73 Grande and 73 fastback, and you are correct, the rear window was not as wide as the rearview mirror could see.....LOL.

Hey John, I thought the 73 with painted front bumper still had the 71-72 chrome bumper. Anyway, the 69-70 view out the back was better but only looking directly straight back. Blind spots were bad. I had a 70 Mach 1.

That's possible, been a while....lol. I know what you mean, the 69 Mach I had was only a bit better, but not great.

The 70 Mach 1 is my favorite with the 71-73 behind it. Really love the 71 Boss 351 model. I think my vintage car days of ownership may be behind me at this stage. I sold my 87 Buick Turbo Regal last year and bought a used 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8 with the 6.1 Hemi- really love this sleeper car!! :clap: 425HP stock before the exhaust mods and Diablosport Predator tune I have. A real wolf in sheeps clothing... :shh:
