Another 72 with 73 front clip?

 

'72 unibody shell with a '73 front end, plus a '73 rear bumper with '73 overriders bolted upside-down - but the '73 bumper is mounted to bent '72 rear bumper brackets, and the taillights are '71/72 as well.

 

My guess is that this car front-ended someone else, and got rear ended immediately after coming to an abrupt stop.

 

Someone did some rust removal on the quarter wheel arches too. A well used car, but it doesn't look unloved - except for that blown engine. Only a look at the floorpans, aprons, and trunk floor would prove or disprove that.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Looks to be worth saving.

 

Would be an expensive fix with the blown 351C, and unknown trunk floor/floorpan condition.

 

It might be a perfect daily beater with a used 302 swap out of a junkyard though.
