Hello to all, I am a new member and glad to be here, My parents have had a 1971 1/2 Spring special mustang since 1973 and still have it. I have always liked the body styling of the 71-73's, I finally got one of my own. This is my 73 I just picked up last weekend, has been sitting since 1987 due to transmission problems ( would only work in reverse). I got it home, put a carb kit in, new fuel sending unit, got it running and checked the transmission fluid, added 4 quarts and drove it down the road. It was a little sluggish so i changed fluid, new filter and added some Lucas. Shifts and runs just fine now.

Welcome to the site.

 

Be sure to order a Marti report for your car if you are interested in how it was equipped when new.

Get the best one you can afford.

 

That is one of my favorite colors on a 73 Mach 1 - probably because a girlfriend had one with a fold down back seat...

 

Sounds like you are making great progress.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
