My '73 Mach 1 and I say Hi

Hi All, Greetings from Oz. 

 

A few months into a full resto, having just finished an MGB for my kids to drive when they come home - yes blatant bribery. Never having had a Mustang before I will have lots of questions - just warning! I will try and search existing threads first though. Keen to talk to anyone who has done a resto on a 73 - though i realise they are all very similar.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

(Here's the car I just finished)

I'm at Coorparoo. Well, well, well, it's a small world indeed. We should make contact at some stage and say hello. Send me a PM if that interests you Sir.

 

Cheers,

 

Greg. :)

Thanks for sharing! Very fascinating combination of body/interior/decal/roof colour!

 

What's the "thing" behind the front wheel?

Rust repairs on both sides - stripping the car down in preparation for sandblasting inside and out

Welcome from a Sydney mustang owner. MGB is a winner btw. Im just putting my 71 fastback back together after being stripped and painted. Luckily there's lot's of great knowledge on this forum. Not mention our mustangs have a huge parts catalogue when you need new parts.

Hi David, as I'm just lining up for that process it would be good to have a chat. How far did you strip back?

Cheers

George
