Hello forum, I just picked up a 1972 mustang convertible. I've always loved these cars and I'm very happy I found one in nice condition that I could afford. The car is restored, has new top and interior, and an awesome pearl white paint job. The engine and tranny we're swapped out for a 351w and AOD tranny from a later model F150.

yeah another convertable! And with Cragar S/S wheels too! I love the color combo. It looks like the engine swap was done cleanly too.

 

Are you using a piece of wood to hold the hood up?

Hello from Mississippi. Pearl white with blue interior sure looks sharp. What is it about those Cragar S/S wheels? They look so right on a Mustang they should of been a factory option!! You'll be glad you stopped by and decided to stay. Welcome aboard.

Welcome from West Texas! :cool:

 

NICE car!! Lovin' the Cragars (and yes, I'm biased - LOL).

 

I also have an AOD in mine. What rear gears are you running, and how does it drive? Good acceleration, fuel mileage, can you do an occasional burn-out, etc.?
