It has been 7 years in the making but I finally have a spot to keep my dad's 1972 HO (mostly original minus paint interior and rims) and took delivery of it this past week. Very excited and so happy to see a very current relevant forum with good information.

Welcome from Oregon. Glad to hear that you got your Dad's car.

 

One thing, though, we really like pictures.

Welcome from Ohio. Nice to see the car stay in the family. As Don mentioned, we love pictures regardless of the cars shape.

Glad you found us and decided to stay. If that is a 72 R code HO your Dad definitely made a wise purchase. According to Marti's book, Mustang....by the numbers, there were less than 400 "R" powered '72 Mustangs built. In the automotive world where production is measured in the thousands, that is an almost unheard of number.

When you get a chance please tell us some more about the history and your plans for that magnificent Horse!

Welcome to your new Mustang home.

  I didnt realize  until a few years ago how uncommon the 72 r codes were until a untill a few years ago.  If my dad had his way it would of been a 429 in there but he was a couple months too late.  He says if he would of had the 429 he wonders if the car would of still been in one piece.  As for plans. To get it running smoothly,  ever since I can remember it has always had a hesitation  accelerating and vibration above 80kph.  After those two things bodywork and repaint will be needed (the depiction will be go back to original color (bright yellow)  or keep the cherry red.

Hello and welcome from SW Ontario.

 72 R code!! awesome car. If it were mine, I get it as close to original as possible, not to a concours standard, but close.

Welcome to the forum. Well done on securing a 72 R Code.

I restored a Grabber Blue 72 R Code  some years ago (and sold it after a time to a guy in Northern Alberta).

My favorite thing was the sweet sound of the solid lifters going at it. 

 

Best wishes on the restoration.
