  1. Alright. The time has come. Our 72 coupe is a major project and pile of parts. Like just about everybody, I had the best of intentions when I drove this car into my shop and tore it apart. But unlike many of you, it simply stalled and now just occupies space. Because other priorities have moved in front, I wanted to post here to see if somebody has the time, money and backbone to take this on. It's really more of a collection of parts at this point, but there are some good parts. I don't have the time or interest to part it, however. I'd like $2500 for it all. Here's what I have. 72 Grande Coupe 351 Windsor, C6, 9" Body has been media blasted and put in epoxy primer. New floor pan (full) is in. New trunk pan is in. Body sits on rolling dolly This is a complete car, which ran and drove when I tore it down (I know...i know) Additionally, I have acquired some extra goodies that are likely worth as much if not more than the car itself. This extra stuff is original and correct. Ram Air Hood. Needs some metal repair, no underhood ducting Mach 1 full gauge cluster Full center console Clutch/brake pedal assembly, no z bar (was entertaining converting to an orig 4 speed car) Original set of Mach 1 wheels, need refinishing Plus I've got the original hood, an extra roof, lots of miscellaneous extra pieces and parts (i had also bought a donor car at one point) Again, I'm not interested in parting any of this stuff out. I just don't have the time to fool with it. I'm wide open to offers. You can PM me here with any questions. The car is located in Largo, Florida, near St. Pete/Clearwater. Feel free to PM me with questions. Thanks, Mark
  2. Sweet. Thanks for sharing. As Mark said...it gives hope to those of us with skeletons.
  3. Ya, not cool. Excedrin migraine is the only product that works for me. Don't need it regularly thank goodness, but when I do it's the only thing that works. Down to about half a small bottle. Hope this is all sorted out by fall.
  4. Hi, Luis - Glad to hear you found a car! As I recall, you had a guy lined up in New Port Richey. I'm in St. Pete, as you may recall. What scope of work are you looking for? Mark
  5. My 2 cents - for that kind of money, I'd go to the 5.0 set up as others have suggested. Unless you're especially attached to your 351, or originality is critically important, I don't think there's enough bang for the buck in making that mod to the original motor.
  6. Thanks. It's been 6 or 7 years since we bought the wheels and I only recall that we bought them from a California company online. They've held up very well.
  7. Thanks, Mike. She'll make someone a nice driver.
  8. Before we advertise the car locally, I thought I'd post it here to see if anyone may have interest or know of someone looking for a clean, economical, reliable Mustang. Our family has owned this 2000 coupe since new. It has 137k. Everything works as it should. It's a v6 auto. We added a GT rear bumper and dual exhaust and chrome Mach1 wheels. We're asking $3500. Send me a PM with your contact number if you'd like to talk about it. Some of the proceeds from this car will be headed into our 72. Thanks for looking. Mark
  9. What an awesome neighborhood. Mopars around the corner?
  10. Looks like a great lake boat. Congrats, and enjoy, Roy.
  11. A neighbor's Chevelle S/S was the first car I fell in love with, and they've had a special appeal for me ever since. I'd have no interest in a 'new' one, but finding and restoring a 70-72 big block is on my list after I finish the Mustang.
  12. Nice TJ project, Kevin. What's your plan for power? We've done a couple small block Chevy conversions in YJ's we've owned. Jeeps are a blast. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Flintstones, meet the Flintstones, they're the modern stone-age family....
  14. :whistling: Missed that one. I'll have to check it out.
  15. ::welcome:: from Florida. Let's see those pics!
  16. Neat effect. Love that you matched your home to your car as well, haha
  17. Makes me want to congratulate you about 800 times.....:D
  18. Congratulations, Joe. Sounds like you have the same issue with your wife as the Carb you mentioned on your test drive. I'd recommend the same fix - just get her out on the road, and she'll warm up just fine. Mark
  19. For me, I don't 'gotta have it', but that's why they make 'em in all kinds of colors. And if those don't work, PPG has many more. Your style is always your call, especially around here.
  20. I agree. Recently bought a shop van that had brand new tires but had been sitting for 6 years. They looked perfect, but one went poof after 2 weeks of being back on the road. Replaced 'em all. Nice option for originality, though, for sure.
  21. Joe, Sounds like a fine car that you could enjoy while you work on it. As Roy mentioned, the cowl is a problematic area. It sounds like you've already examined the others in frame rails, torque boxes, floor pans. Look at the base of the shock towers as well. If the car is priced right, go for it. I can assure you that if you have ANY question related to restoration, maintenance or performance as you go along, this forum has the folks with the answers who are always willing to share their knowledge.
