  3. Going to sell our 73 Q Code, 4 Speed Convertible. You can see a few pictures in the Member profile. If interested, I'll send a detailed writing of this. Yes a original build sheet, number matching, More pictures. Dan @ Chockostang Call Please for responses. 217 882 2083
  4. The Finned rear Drums on the 71-73 Mustangs do indeed resemble the Finned drums for the front. BUT, they will not work. Your 8792 C Drums, Composite drums are hard to get, SO, you will need to search for them, or put on the non finned 8736 Drum. The 8736 is same drum, just no fins. All are 10". Dan @ Chockostang
  5. Good to know Ya!! Welcome. NICE-Nice, I like that. Dan @ Chockostang
  6. Good Folks here!!! New myself, I'm sure we'll enjoy/Benefit from the interaction. Dan @ Chockostang
  7. The Dark Side, I Like that! We done the 65-70 for years as builders, Buy a wreck, weld on pieces, send back into the market. This helped feed our kids, just Body Work, earning a living. The 71-73 Thing was not appealing till about 79 or so. A buddy and I starting Buying these things--Hell $50.00 each if found in the right situation. We done that for a bit, then the Painting/Health thing came along--We crushed 17 of the 71-73 at one time--Sure wish I had not done that. The Convertible I recognized as a very low number (I believe only 292 were built) saved it till 86 or so, done the number on it. It has about 1 Mile on it. Sets in a nice Garage in Jacksonville. We'll need to sell it in the VERY near future. Dan @ Chockostang
  8. New myself. Welcome aboard, I'm sure the experience we recieve will be beneficial in the 71-73 Mustang. Dan @ Chockostang
  9. This observation pertains to the 73 Convertible only. If I remember correctly, there were only 292 Q code, 4 Speed, 73's made. This is a very low number build--The Build number is as it should be, Body, Engine, Trans. Not the NEW notion, Color, Radio knob grooves, Chrome strips, Interior color VS outside color, a 1 of 15 Built, etc. The new numbers do not make a rare car, they make a person feel good. Side note--Dumb a-- me, I crushed 17, 71-73 in about 86 at one time! Dan @ Chockostang
  10. New to this Forum, I'm active in some other Forum, and happen to be sent this Link. One of the keeps of 40 years of Building/restoring was our 73 Q Code, 4 Speed, Convertible. These cars a finally getting the recognition they deserve, and now will gain in value, popularity. Our Q Code is a very close copy of the Green convertible that was on E Bay. Haven't figured out this posting pictures yet!!! Dan @ Chockostang
