I'm new to the forum, but not to 71/73 Mustangs. I'm 61 years old and owned both a Boss 302 and Boss 351 car in the 70's in addition to a 73 Mach 1. Unfortunately, all were sold almost 40 years ago, I miss the Boss 351 the most and would like to duplicate it in a tribute car. I also have a Maverick Grabber and a 86 Thunderbird Elan. Both are fully restored and modified.

 

I'm almost going into cardiac arrest at the prices of these cars today, good if you own one, bad if you don't. I've owned a lot of Mustangs, but there was just something special about the 71/73. I have pretty bad arthritis now, so I have to buy a nicer car vs. a project.

::welcome:: from Germany!

 

A healthy Q- or M-code, slightly tuned up, with a 4-speed and a 3.50 gear, would be a good and (still) affordable alternative... ::thumb::

Howdy from Phoenix (and a long time owner of a Mustang). I was fortunate enough to be able to keep mine for over 30 years. Like you, older age is making it harder to work on them. Laying on my back under the car is harder than it used to be!

 

I hope you find a nice car! You have found a great spot for support, encouragement and information.

Welcome from SW Ontario.

Oh, if we'd only kept the cars we "once had" instead of selling them for "peanuts". I'm on my 4th Mach 1 and should have kept the last two, the 72 Q code 4 speed for sure.

I currently own a 71 M code Mach 1.

Hello from Mississippi. You'll find that a lot of us are starting to get into "That" age group! I was once told that I could see an ant crossing the road 50 yards away. Now I can't see under the dash when on my back trying to repair something! Lol      I've also owned many previous first generation Mustangs, but feel that the 71-73 are the best since they are a accumulation of the best of the 65-73 Mustangs. Welcome to your new Mustang home.

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