My uncle and I will be looking at a 72 Mustang grande right after the pandemic. It belongs to an old couple and needs some TLC for sitting for years. I searched around the net for info and that's how I found you. Gonna lurk around

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. Be sure and do your research on here, Mustangs have rust in all the wrong places. There are some good one's but there can be lots of hidden also.

Lift the carpets and check for rust!,

Take a torch and shine it into the cowl area and check for rot / rust!

Check for rust under the battery tray area.

If the car has A/C Check to see weather it's been converted to run on R134 / R134a

Check bottom of Heater box passenger side, make sure there is an S shape tube attached to the bottom corner of the fibreglass heater box, they sometimes break off and then the water from the A/C evaporator will rot out the floor pans.

Check all electricals, from Windscreen wipers, washer pump motor operation, interior lights, all other lights.

Check fluids for discolouration and levels.

 

Or do what I did, none of the above and now have a junk yard dog project!
