Hi, I am in the Seattle area and am a long time Mustang enthusiast. I currently have a 71 convert with a 429 cj, 4spd and N case 31 spl rear. I also have a 69 fastback that I am currently building to be a street/strip car.

My purpose for joining this site is to exchange technical information and meet new people that share my interest in Mustangs.

::welcome:: from Luxembourg, Europe.

Wow! What a nice car. Looking really hot in the 3x black configuration and a 429 in a convertible is pretty cool!

Thanks for your honesty. Now here is mine >>> Your car is a very tastefully done car. I like that it represents well (period correct). And black is my favorite color on our 'Stangs.

 

Well done!

Welcome from Rhode Island. Great looking car. I love the seats. Is your steering wheel original? I have the same emblem on my 72's rim blow steering wheel. The story I got was that my dad had the dealer who was a family friend take the rim blow off a Torino since he did not like the 2 spoke wheel hence the non Mustang center emblem I have. I will never change it though.

Thanks. I have put a lot into the car, especially the running gear to make it correct for a 429 car. It's such a fun car to drive and I get a lot of attention with it. I still have a few minor things to do but I have a 69 fastback I currently working on to be a mean street/strip car.

Hi Ron, I don't know if the wheel is original to the car. It was in when I bought it. I really want a rimblow wheel but they are spendy.

Thanks for the reply, this seems like a really cool forum.
