Hello there everyone. My name is Doug. I am 23 Years Old and I inherited a '71 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback with a 351C from my Uncle 3 years ago when he passed away. I am just getting around to restoring it and am trying to make it into a custom performance car. Was gonna go back to original color (grabber blue) but engine block is not original so I am going to do what I want to do with it. :cool:

 

Anyways here are two pics of how the car looked when I got it

For those further interested here are links to my facebook albums where my restoration progressis being documented. :D

 

After I obtained car!

Fender Removal

Engine Removal

Engine Bay Restoration

Cowl and Firewall Restoration

 

After the Cowl and Bay are complete it will be off to Floor Pans, Rear Quarter Panels, and a new Trunk Floor and she will be ready for paint which I am going with a Black with green metallics in it so it will pop when the sun hits her.

 

Thanks for your time and thank you for such an awesome forum.

Please help me get my 71 Mustang Restored. Any little bit helps and would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Doug! Welcome from West Texas! Looks like you've been busy at it already. I've been through repairing my cowl and front clip as well - looks like you're off to a great start! (I wasn't lucky enough to have the Dynacorn cowl pieces though - good for you!)

 

Love the Centerlines! Keep us posted with your progress - we love pictures!

Welcome from Arkansas. You going to go back with a 71 grill?

yup going back to 71 style grille with a RAM Air setup instead of cutting a hole in my brand new hood.

yeah i was looking through your pics and holy crap you had to do a massive overhaul. Mine was originally from Maryland but I am fortunate that there was hardly any major rust on the difficult pieces of the car. Here is a recently taken photo. Front end is done, ready for primer and paint. :)
