  1. mach71351c: Hi 408 I put together a 71 Grande when I was 17 and the whole time I had it I wished it was a Mach 1. So I under stand why you would want to take on this project. I was just saying that I would hate to see a good car get cut up and lost because it became to much work. I have seen it happen to many times weir guys get over their heads. If your dad is a master at body work then I say go for it. My coupe was a nice car that I gave up on because it wasn't a Fastback. Looking back that was foolish. So now Im building the Mach 1 I always wanted 20 years later. Good luck post lots of pics. Mike your coupe did look pretty bad ass. and if thats your garage with the fast back in it then, bad ass garage too!
  2. Loving the feedback guys! So first and foremost my mustang is the first car i have ever owned, had it before i had my licence. and the car is immaculate as far as 39 year old cars go. now its not perfect but its in really good condition. so to part with this car seems beyond me. i love this car though im willing to hack it into peices in order to have it to my liking. Haha. So in other words cant imagine parting with it in order to buy another just like it. not to mention all ive invested in the car parts wise( rebuilt suspension front and rear. everything steering- minus the powr steering pump, damn near perfect interior, and other things im missing but cant think due to the matter at hand.) "THE BRAGGING RIGHTS" never even occured to me as good reason to do the conversion but to be the first guy on thisforim to even just attempt it! In my opinion, PRETTY BAD ASS! Another reason for the conversion idea being a possiblity is that my dad is a master at bodywork and not to mention unbelievibly meticulas about straight panels and bodywork, and has almost to decades of experience under his belt. so any help needed would be coming from that guy. Haha In my researching this project i stumbled upon this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1971-1972-1973-MUSTANG-MACH-1-FASTBACK-ROOF-ASSEMBLY-71-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZalgoQ3dLVIQ26ituQ3dUCIQ26otnQ3d2Q26poQ3dLVIQ26psQ3d63Q26clkidQ3d513435419600991318QQ_trksidZp5197Q2em7QQitemZ160598651906 hopefully thatll still be up. in response to mach71351c comment: the beautiful blindspotfilled quarters and practically horizontal rearwindow! is enough of a gain for me! HAHAHA So the more i dig into this idea, the more and more i am willing to invest my time and money in the persuit of keeping my precious car and it being a fastback. As this progressees i promise to keep everyone posted on every move made with its own thread including tons of pictures!
  3. Has anyone on this forum ever done a coupe to fastback conversion on a 71-73 mustang? Ive had this idea floating in my head ever since i bought my '72 3 years ago? and would like some insight from anyone who has attempted it. and please i dont want to hear anyone saying that its not worth the money to do the conversion... it will only cost me the price of sheet metal and my own personal time that is already loosing its value as my life rolls on.
  4. 408 its not a stroker 351 tho i wish it was it a 250ci 6cyl.... 408 is the area code down here in Gilroy,CA.... and the sleepstang cuz im keepin the car as a sleeper from the outside n decked out in the inside(under the hood)
  5. HEY 7173MUSTANG I BEEN LOOKING FOR A FORUM FOR MY STANG FOREVER JUST DIDNT THINK THEY EXISTED. BUT HERE I AM. SO I OWN A 72 COUPE 6CYL C4 STANDARD MODEL. SO NOTHING TO SPECIAL MY 1ST CAR IVE OWNED IT FOR 2 YEARS NOW AND HAVE DONE ALMOST NOTHING MAJOR BESIDES GETTING IT STREET DRIVABLE. WHICH WASNT TO HARD NEW CARB, MASTERCYLINDER, TIRES. STEERING RAG JOINT. FRONT SHOCKS AND SPRINGS. GLASSPACK MUFFLER. PATCHED UP SOME RUST HOLES WITH FIBERGLASS (I KNOW STUPID WAY TO DO IT) BUT I AM GOING TO CUT OUT AND REPLACE WITH NEW SHEET METAL. I HAVE BEEN PLANNING THE BUILD ON THE CAR FOR A WHILE AND I DO KNOW HOW I WANT TO BUILD THE CAR. IT IS A LITTLE OUTRAGEOUS BUT IM PLANING ON POSTING EVERYTHING. SO HOPEFULLY YOU GUYS WILL APPRECIATE A MORE MODERNIZED AND HEAVILY MODIFIED 72 MUSTANG. ILL BE SEEING EVERY1 AROUND THE FORUMS
