How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Thanks. That was actually a low buck rush job. I got the car from a neighbor who bought it from NYC Port Authority as an abandoned vehicle at JFK Airport. He stripped the nose and was trying remove the windshield when I rescued it for the price of a new windshield. It took about a year to build. At first I bought it for parts for my Mach but found it was a Ca car with almost no rust. Too rare a car here in salty NYC to cut up.

Mustang Ricky do you have any pics of the inside of the boot during and after mod , I'm buying a panel and doing the mod any other tips you can give mate?

 

As I used a steel panel I totally removed the original tail light panel. A good fabrictor is highly recommended! The biggest issue would be wiring the sequential tail light wiring harness. I don't have many pictures of the trunk.

Hi Ricky, the tail lights look amazing - excellent work. Question, how hard was it to convert it to shelby sequential tail lights in our mustangs? I would love to do this mod on my '73 Fastback but would like to know how complicated the process is. It is obvious that I would need a welder and a fabricator in order for this to work on my project. Any help, tips, and advices would be awesome!

Someone should do the whole Cougar + Mustang hybrid.

 

We now know that the back end looks awesome! I love the blue fastback.

 

Now take the 67 XR7 hood scoop and the hide away headlights and meld them into a 71 - 73 fastback.

 

I think a Mougar would be killer (Moo-gar would also be a great name for a big, loyal and somewhat mean dog)

We can even get it as a bolt on for under $200.00!

 

Photoshop anyone?
