Help the man out. I would love to see some sequential tail lights as I am considering some for mine. :)

 

:rolleyes: My LED sequential tail lights boards that fit inside of stock tail light lenses for 71-73 mustangs is from "Mustangs Plus" I believe is in Stockton, CA. Do not have the toll free number on hand and do can not find the catalogue which they will supply for free. Now for the BMW look with a multi-color ring inside of the halogen healights comes from Mustangs Unlimited in Conneticut at phone 860 647 1965. For $289.95. the tail light boards is about $299.00. Should be able to track down phone on Mstngs Plus @ Stockton or maybe through toll free directory service.

1972 Mustang, 302 2V converted to 4V. Added hotter cam, higher flow intake, headers, replaced every hose and gasket. Hope to have her drivable by Summer. I said "drivable". It has not been running for 7 years. She still needs a lot of work, but to just drive it down the road will be an amazing accomplishment. It has been in the family for 30 years, I used to beg my sister to borrow her car for dates in the 80's. It was totally restored then. I rescued it from my sister in Dallas. She left it out in the rain with the top down for 3 years, sick!!!!

Mine is a '72 vert with a 302 and c-4. The body and paint is good but it had crap interior and electrical issues, etc. plus it just didn't run well at all. A year later all interior has been replaced. Electrical issues fixed and I personally rebuilt the engine. Stock bottom end but now has cast iron GT40 heads, 1.7 ratio cobra roller rockers, Edelbrock performer intake and 600 cfm carb, pertronix ignition, long tube hedman headers, etc. and now this lil' 302 will scoot!

1973 metallic brown 351C 2V with FMX auto; ginger interior; factory a/c. Have owned it 2 years this month (March 2014); is a great cruise night car. For this simmer I am replacing the interior with seats that have the vinyl mesh (bought used off this forum); replacing the bumper with the deluxe bumper (bought one off ebay and had it straightened and re-chromed; also bought bumper guards off ebay and had them re-chromed them). Unfortunate this winter has just been too cold to do this in an unheated garage this winter.

Well they do look good in black don't they!

 

With that big block make sure you put the shock tower braces on.

If you don't have subframe connectors you should look into getting some too.

Great looking car.

As Will E said with that size engine you should have at least the OEM shock tower braces.

the car will handle much better.

Good deal. Braces should be easy to find. Post up a 'wanted' and someone on here will probably offer up a factory set cheap. There are also aftermarket sets available. Do some searching on the site and you will find lots of info.

 

Sub-frame connectors are the bomb. Get them installed asap. :)

New at this so probably doing it wrong, lol.

I just purchased a 1973 convertible H code with c-4, yellow with white top and white and black interior, air, ps, pb, has headers and aluminum wheels not ford. I am waiting on delivery to N.C. it is California car and never been painted or restored.

The other car is 72 Q code with c-6, factory ram air car, tilt column, ginger sebring knit interior and I think it had black top originally. It is gold metallic has chrome bumpers with guards and magnum 500 wheels. This car was taken completely apart and dip stripped and all metal repaired. I was epoxy primer and sprayed inside the boxes and places that paint would not reach. It has been started in assembly with all new parts and is back to rolling chassis. Engine is built with forged pistons, big cam, roller rockers and triple springs with racing valves.

After getting the Marti on this car not going to sell one of 320 CJ made with C-6.

Since posting this I have also purchased a 72 vert parts car that was loaded with options even P.W.. Also purchased another 73 off eBay that is Factory Special Order with Black exterior. Marti says one of 144 special order mustangs in 73. Had Argent front bumper according to the build sheet and looks like Argent side stripe and hood insert.

With the help of forum members I purchased another 72 vert parts car that was a one owner that was in perfect shape until hit in the rear and crashed in the front. The interior and top is exactly the same as what I needed for the 72 Q vert and it they had just installed ceramic coated headers and stainless dual exhaust so that will also go to the Q vert.

I hope this is all the verts I will own too many now, lol.

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

I'm thinking about going blue glow, black top, white interior with a 351c 4v and either a 4r70w or a 5-spd manual trans. Then lowered with 17 or 18 inch wheels.
