Thanks guy I just got a new steering column out of a 73 the wiring was different so I swapped over all the wiring from my column and that seems to have fixed my problem the old column was all busted up and the car would shut off when you turned the when you turned the wheels I'll get that put in after I get my new clutch cable in from modern driveline

Yes 73 column is different. Quite a few things are different on the 73.

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

Welcome from Western Australia

Don't give up on your project  just persist and you'll get her done

 

congrats.....I'm sorry, and good luck to you all in one :) welcome to the pain and pleasure that is the 71-73 mustang. If you love her long enough she can be something special, so don't give up but it will be painful. The people here will be a huge help, especially, david, midlife and don take their advice.

Got the column and new clutch cable installed tonight having issues with it not starting without a jump even if I just shut it off gonna get a new battery and see if that's the issue the altenator is good the wiring on the other hand is kind of a mess but everything appears to be hooked up properly but I did get to take it down the driveway and back seems to shift good

 

thanks for all the nice feedback!8e5e7d11cc59bcad787cfaece93c5d99.jpg

That looks awesome!  Mine has been apart so long It's nice to see one like this.  Get her running well, leave the body alone except for a "Night Fury" name painted on it somewhere!

Took it on its maiden voyage Saturday afternoon it was pretty sketchy but it made it to the gas station and back (about 10 miles) without any issues really. Needs an alignment and the brakes are poor at best but it was a pretty successful weekendf4c809e15d3293cb43488c83296f7e4a.jpg

I decided to clean up the engine bay and fix rust on the aprons and the cowl aswell as do some work to the engine it came out easy peasy surprisingly considering I pulled it with the trans and headers still bolted up99667fc7250b3320b2c189af04c9ed0a.jpg2ba4932efe3ab5394a53541dc5ddd6e9.jpg05f084d8b301163e5855938082fcea77.jpg175d96c3fd954b1c03bbfabce390c0b9.jpg101b1fca3af68223335c0cd677523e59.jpg

I've always found it easier to pull the engine and transmission at once. Whether I pull the exhaust manifolds/headers at the same time depends on how rusted the bolts are, and which ones are not coming loose.

 

Looks like you had plenty of help, at least someone was helping holding the fender on :)
