Hey all, new guy here, I have a 73 White/white/white convertible. 302, V2. I bought it off e-bay and you know what they say "Buyer beware" It looked great in the pic but had lots of probs. Had to re-wire the dash lots of rust, had to replace floor pan, trunk floor, rockerbeams etc. Got most of it done and repainted, it still looks great but still had some more probs, replaced, idler arms, freeze plugs ,carb, intake manifold, head gasket, dist, coil, repair the A/C, etc. but I am having alot of fun with it.

The car is my daily driver and as I am retired I have the luxerary of being able to stay home if I'm working on it.

The car is great for around town but if I tyake it onto the hwy, it has a tendance to overheat,

I hope to get alot of advice from this forum as I am quite the novice working on cars.

Welcome to the forum from just up the road a bit in Memphis. I like the photo and the jacket. Where did you get the jacket?

 

Passed up on buying an identical back in 1987. White on white always looked very classy to me on a convertable. Looks like you are working on something you can pass down to the little guy in the photo.

 

Keep in contact with the forum. It is a great group of folks who can help out with most if not all technical questions.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

::welcome::

Well, triple white is kinda classy!

That makes three white things that will have to be cleaned thoroughly!;)

I keep moaning about the white interior on my convertible.......

GREAT to have yet another RETIREE to board...A sincere WELCOME!

 

It sounds as if you are on the way toward providing outstanding advice yourself considering the work you have done or had done on your Mustang. I look forward to interacting with you on the individual Forums.

 

Again, Welcome!

Welcome to the site from another white 73 convertible retired owner. Sounds like you put some hard work into it! Looks like you have the original optional 73 factory wheels too. Post up some more pictures when you get a chance.

The car is great for around town but if I tyake it onto the hwy, it has a tendance to overheat,

 

I was thinking about your overheating issue last night. Does your lower radiator hose have the coil spring inside of it? The water pump may be drawing to much pressure at that speed and constricting the lower hose causing a loss in water flow. Just a thought.

Ted, Once again I am reminded that it is a small world and getting smaller. I was on the electronics side of things for the Air Force and the FAA. I was an instructor, supervisor, and Manager in the Technical Operations Division (AF in the old days) from 1985 until 2009. I'm now retired. Chuck
