New guy from Texas

Just found this forum. I’ve been out of the 71-73 world since I sold my 72 351HO back in 2007. I just picked up a 72 Q code, C6 A/C car. It is pretty complete, minimal rust.  But needs a lot of attention. 

 

I’ve already learned a few things from the forum. Lots of enthusiasm here.

Hello from Mississippi.

Glad you stopped by and decided to stay!  When you get a chance please tell us some more about yourself, the 72 Ho that got away and your present Q code car. And we are also a big fan of pictures.

Welcome to your new Mustang home.

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

Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

I met you at Texas World CVAR or Corinthian race. Can you say Love Bugs!

 

I know you have many road racing pics of your old HO.

Still teaching?

 

Anyway - You're gonna like it here.

Thank you for the warm welcomes. I do recall some love bugs at TWS. Made a mess of the car. Th HO may return to my garage this year. Spoke with the guy I sold it to last week.....details pending.

 

The Q code is mostly original, missing only exhaust manifolds. It needs restored though. Not really a driver yet. My plan is to get it running properly: brakes, belts, fluids, etc. I’ve removed the front suspension and will replace it with the recently removed front suspension off my Boss 302 T/A replica. Going to detail the inner fender areas. Add new brake lines and general tart up. Will probably just change the leaf spring bushings and shocks in back. Then upgrade the interior. I have some left over 69 Mach 1 carpet with the red inserts going in. Changing the interior from ginger to black.

 

The original color is 5H medium ginger/brown metallic. Not going to paint it brown. It’s currently a non FOMOCO red w/ gold metallic. I had a 68 torino with the same paint, I think. Bonus. It has a hideous frenched in power antenna. I’m not motivated to paint it now. Once I get it driving for a while, I may take it al apart for a proper resto in 2020.

 

The car has very little rust. Found one small area in the shock tower low. The battery tray area is rotten out. Needs rear floor pans. Had a repair job, probably when it was painted. I hope to have it on the road by end of March.

 

I’ll have to get the pictures off my phone. I don’t seem to have any on this iPad.

Welcome from W. TN.  We have been exchanging posts on the Concourse Forum.  Glad to see you here as well.  This is a great group to share your 71-73 experience with a hopefully learn a bit while sharing with others.  

 

If you can make it to the MCA National in Houston March 28-31 it would be great to meet in person.  I have been in touch with some other 71-73 owners (71 boss's) that are also planning to attend)

From your links in your intro looks like we have some similar interests beyond the mustangs as well.  My next project.

Hay Danoh1 !!! Mark Haas from Boss302.com site. Glad to see you are well and KICKING AROUND WITH CARS STILL !! LOL

 

Always liked your TA car.......I know we talked years ago. Was convoluted on need for speed/go back to SCCA or not. Ended up getting a 427 Fairlane NHRA car. Really not doing anything with it either!

 

Great forum here - all different owners from Grande's to Boss's and restorers to resto modders! I too found site when restoring a Boss 351.

 

Welcome AGAIN
