G'day everyone from Western Australia

Recently purchased a 72 Coupe V8 stocker that is part way RHD so I have my work cut out to get it on the road not just restoration

Came across this site and was so impressed by all the great info especially Q's videos, pics & tips that I had to join

Will be soaking up all the great stuff and perhaps will have some photos to post someday

Cheers Mick

Welcome from North Carolina. I bet converting to R.H. is a pain especially when they did not make them originally. Is there a car in Australia that has very similar layout that you use?

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Welcome from West Tennessee. I have a contact that I have made in Eastern AUS who is restoring a low mileage 72 Mach 1. Interesting photos of the right hand drive conversion done on his car.

Hello from Mississippi. Mick, with all the Mustang sites out there in cyber land, I'm glad you saw what you liked and decided to join up. It's really great to see how large a group our Australian brothers is becoming. When you get a chance please tell us more about yourself and your Mustang.

Welcome aboard!

Steve

 

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Welcome from Oklahoma. Post up some pics when you can.

 

We have quite a few Australian members. I'm sure one of them can help you gain more info on RHD conversion.

Thanks for the welcome

 

Someone has put an Aussie 302Cin mine so I have a head start with the heads but might need to get special pistons to use 351 crank and 302 long rods

Thanks and yes our Falcon has many parts that are used

I would have kept it LHD however would be more work to put it back

Thanks, interesting how he's boxed in or covered the steering box and wonder what he is doing for the brake pedal - must be running a shaft?

Thanks Steve

The other Mustang sites mostly concentrate on the 64-70 and scoff at 71-73 sometimes (bloody elitists!)

Not that I don't like the older ones but out of my reach so stuck with my "poverty pack" 72 coupe. In my younger years I had a few falcon GTs but always wanted a Mustang so this one came along and being a garden variety model I'm not afraid to modify or improve it. Will be replacing the cowl and floor pans and go from there. Hope the missus doesn't find out how much this will cost!
