Hello from Kentucky


Recommended Posts

So glad to find this site for 71 - 73 Mustangs. Have acquired a 72 convertible. It is a nice driving and riding car. It seems to be in mostly original condition according to the door sticker. It is a 351C/2V with FMX transmission. It had factory AC but the compressor locked up and was removed by PO. I do have the original compressor though. It has a few electrical issues that i am working on ironing out. I have pulled the instrument cluster to do some investigation. I replaced the old 194 bulds with LEDs because i was unable to see the gauges at night. Made a BIG difference. Also have replaced IVR with new solid state one. Currently do not have Alt or Brake idiot light or functioning fuel gauge. PO put on new gas tank and fuel sending unit. Not surs about sending unit, it only has one post, electrical connector has two contacts. Fuel gauge works with 6 volts across terminals so am guessing it is good. That is one of the reasons i joined, support and help and i love Mustangs. Hope to be able to get and give assistance on the site.

Thank you for the welcome. I will be sure to look up about cleaning the white interior. Didn't  do to bad with upholstrh cleaner and some elbow grease. Tried to be careful so that i didn't mess anything up.

Hello from Mississippi. Great to have another Vert owner join our ranks. I see where you are in Kentucky. My Dad's side of the family is from Kentucky (mostly Lexington) and my Pewter Mach1 was also sold new at Paul Miller Ford in Lexington.

Pull up a chair and sit a spell, your gonna like it here!

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

Thank you for the welcome. As a matter of fact, i live in Lexington. My family is from Paris, and Winchester. My son works at a business behind Paul Miller. Small world. The vert is so much fun to drive, get compliments and big smiles every time i take it out. Looking forward to getting everything back in order for a long cruise. :thankyouyellow:
