Hi from Vancouver, Canada

Hi Everyone,

My name is Adam, I am a 17 year old from Vancouver, Canada and am fortunate enough to be the owner of a '72 Convertible which I purchased in April with my Dad. I have looked around on this forum quite a bit while redoing the interior of my car, but have just decided to write my hello now :D The car has next to no rust, is an H-Code car with the original 351 Cleveland motor (though we are adding things like aussie heads in order to get more power) has a completely new interior/convertible top and is Bright Lime (which someday I hope to paint black).

If anyone has a picture/knows of an all black 7173 convertible with a mach grill and same colour bumper.....Let me know I've looked everywhere for a reference image. Thanks!

Also I know lots of the users on this forum love photos so here are a bunch:

Hey, another new member with a convertible. Don't you just love the look of these!

 

I like the original color but all black is a good choice too. Basically these cars look good in pretty much any color you choose.


Regarding black examples. This one might not have everything you are looking for but it should give you some ideas and is just sexy as all get out:

Hi Adam, and welcome from Brisbane, Australia!

 

Here's a few pics that might help you.

Those are all very good looking stangs, none quite the dream car, but nonetheless they're helping me build that vision in my head thanks!

 

Hi Adam. Murray here. Glad you are on this site now. These guys offer an awsome amount of knowledge and encouragement. The car is looking awesome! It is in good,good hands!

 

Hey Murray! Yes everyone on this site seems to be very helpful and nice thank you for pointing me here when I bought the car. Got rid of that green interior like you recommended and I think it turned out great. Currently have it up on jacks in the garage and am cleaning the undercarriage as well as attempting to make it rust-proof with some products. Hope you, your wife and your charger are doing well!

Hi Adam. I quickly threw some black on a copy of your green image. Sorry it's a bit messy but it gives you an idea of the look you're after. How about black with the semi gloss stripes I know you have in the box. ;)

That looks awesome! Yes the semi gloss striping is a good idea. Also thanks for taking the time to colour that, it's basically exactly what I want.
