How many of these cars in the river are stolen or auto insurance fraud?
In this episode of Adventures with Purpose, we recover a '73 Ford Mustang Fastback after getting a call from a get-a-way driver from 20-years ago who said we are guaranteed to find a few vehicles in the river at the Tualatin Boat Ramp.
It appears he wasn't the only one to be involved in dumping cars underwater at this location here in Oregon.
Super stoked to have found a 1973 Mustang Mach 1 Fastback.
Crazy... RIGHT?
It took us 2-days to recover the Mustang.
A lot of you are going to be a bit upset at how destroyed the Mustang Mach 1 became after we tried removing it from the river.
In our defense, there was an extra 8000 pounds of mud inside the car, along with the Mustang being underwater in the river for over 40-years.
It really did become a rustang!
True crime for sure, be it stolen or auto insurance fraud.

Nice work, gentlemen. Don't feel bad about the Mustang coming apart, that was 35-ish years underwater, looked just like the Camaro from Foss Lake. The modular style aftermarket wheels and Goodyear Eagle GT tires put this into the mid '80s. The engine is a 351 Cleveland (with headers, and the previous video showed a Holley 4 barrel carburetor, this was someone's hot rod) , the transmission is an FMX automatic, and the rear end is a 9 inch. '71-'73, hard to tell exact year, not much left to go by.

I live in North Carolina. Do you ever come south??? Where I grew up there is a river called the Catawba River. It runs the county line between Iredell & Catawba counties...The Lookout Dam heads the river...Right down from the dam on the Catawba side there is a Volkswagen Beetle in the water near the bank. When the water goes down from drought or lack of rain, you can see the top of the Volkswagen. It has become almost an unban legend. But I've saw the top of it before, years ago...I don't know the back story on the Volkswagen beetle. Its been in the river for at least 40 years or more...I'm not asking ya'll to pull it up since its not my car but I think it is interesting & when the river goes down I always go to see if I can see the top of the Beetle. Take care, I enjoy your videos.

Car looks good...all it needs is a set of tires and some minor detailing. This is why I preferred playing with guys, instead of girls. Girls have to much drama. Guys get along and actually have fun, without the petty bullshit. I love how you guys have a good time and joke around. Stay safe!

Should have used a 2" water pump and hose and flush all the mud out when they got up to the ramp! I would'nt hire these clowns to tow a scooter!!!!!!!
BloodTheif Hace 10 días
Definitely agree. Pulled cars out of the ice more then once. Always got as much mud out as possible, easier on tools and allows more of the car to come up.

Nice job. Makes you wonder how the Mustang got there in the 1st place and who was behind it. Do you have any info on this Mustang? Enjoyed this video.

You guys should get a pump and just wash the mud out with river water.

Have to really be careful with some of those recovered junkers or where you buy parts. A buddy of mine bought parts of a front right clip for a 69 mercury. When he went to title & register it at the DMV, they inspected it's serial numbers & VIN and some parts came back as stolen. 1 week later the state police came and seized the whole damn car! After he'd begun body work and rebuilt the brakes & suspension. Now he's locked in civil battle and trying to get it back.
