My '73 Grande


Recommended Posts

TNFASTBK - Not only will get the opportunity for a ride; I will even let you drive it. You will get the opportunity to see how a "mild" REAL Big Block feels with all that TORQUE:)!

 

ROCKETFOOT - I know I have been promising and promising so YES, GREAT photos will be on the way on the Grande and the ENGINE with full descriptions.

Very nice job!

 

Motor sounds like a very serious GROUND-POUNDER.

I think car looks really good w/o the Boss stripes.

But I'm sure it will look good with them, too!

is your vinyl roof brown? if yes is it correct material for the roof ?, i had trouble replacing mine had to use normal interior vinyl material as vinyl roof material only comes in black and white, if you know where i could get some proper vinyl in brown please let me know

No, Fangstang, I went with the black.

 

I never even consider brown since I was changing the "Grande" appearance to the "Sports Coupe" concept.

 

Perhaps Don (at OMS) will chime in as he may be more aware of a possible source. Failing that, you might give him a call or shoot him a PM.

Attached are a couple of more "Teasers."

 

Actually, the only thing missing are the "stripes" and the "Hood graphics."

Yes, there are about 25 other Mustangs in there undergoing restoration and/or modifications.

STRIPES are on!!

 

Still a couple of "fitment" issues and the install of the hood graphics but everything else is done.

 

We are getting there!

Well, I picked "Ice" up today and am going to do some minor detailing over the next couple of weeks. I took a couple of pictures in the approximate same spot that it was in on this original post.

After this "learning experience", I am now ready to start in on "Fire" with a SERIOUS approach:)!

That is bad ass. I like the stripes but the 472 is killer. I will stick with my 351 but I may have to build me a 429 ram air mach1 in the future.

Me too. I think the '71 gas cap is badass. Probably will get one for my '72.

Oh hell no. I like the original one. It weighs enough to take out Arnold if thrown just right. I actually get worried when I am putting gas in the car that it will scratch the trunk its so heavy. Its a weapon I tell you.

Wow Cobra, I have to say this is one of the nicest coupes I have ever seen in my life. I have a 71 Grande and will be doing a lot of things to her to make it a "one off". She was my very first car when I was 15 and have kept it all these years. I did a mild restore on her back in 2003, but it was to what I could afford at the time. This time it will be as to what I want. I have paced back and forth about keeping the vinyl top, but after seeing yours, I have made my decision to keep it. The only big difference I see is that I am going to try and do all of the metal replacement and fab myself, teaching myself as I go of course. How well did the hood fit the car right out of the box, did you buy the Dynacorn? Anyway, sorry for the rambling, great job on the Stang, Paint Is Awesome! Enjoy tearing up the pavement!

Make sure that you keep all of the roof trim clips. I cannot find any of them.

Actually the hood was a NOS unit that was on the car when I purchased it @in 2002. Other than the paint (and graphics):), all that I had to do relative to the hood was to install the locks.
