Just to introduce myself, I have owned 16 mustangs so far all 69-70 with the exception of an 83 5.0 GT. I am not new to Mustangs but I am new to the 71-73's. Mine was built as a fleet rental car. Originally green 302 car with a tan interior. I bought it like it sits. I will be adding a tach to the dash, new rear springs, ram air assembly, rear Mach 1 trim, tilt column, disc brakes and possibly 15 inch wheels. I have a 351C 4V as a spare that I may replace the stock 302 but I want to drive and enjoy for a bit first. This body style has grown on me and although the outer skin looks different, it seems to be quite similar to the 69-70's underneath. I also have a 41 Studebaker Champion 5 window with a Ford 302 and a 1960 F100 with a 351W. Ford all the way. I live in southwest KY.

That's a great plan and easy to stick to with a good looking car like this!

Welcome from Southern Ohio.   Nice looking car.   Sounds like you have a good  plan in place.  You come to the right site for your 71.  Lots of friendly people willing to help and tons of good info.

Hello and a warm welcome form SW Ontario, Canada.

Very nice looking car, doesn't appear to need much other than the things you want to do to it.

As others have mentioned, tach conversion from Bob aka Rocketman at RCCI. (here's a pic of my car's tach conversion).

Rear springs definitely from Eaton Detroit Springs, NPD sell them as well as directly from Eaton's. A long post, but I attached a link to some really good Eaton's videos.
