Hello, I have a 1972 Mustang Convertible with a 351 cleveland FMX tranny and a 9" Locker rear, and just signed up to this site.
Nice to have a site about 71-73 cars.
I cant look at at another article about a 65 shelby suspension drop, Rally pac gauges, or where to find HIPO 289 heads.

Greetings one and all...

Thanks to the assistance of Rocket, I was finally able to register and have access to your site, glad to do so and participate in the fun. I own several Mustangs but my pride and joy is a black (formly peweter) 1973 Mach 1 with a 429cj and C6 (the 429cj came from a 71 Ranchero). I've owned the car for 17 years just finishing it in 2005. Well, we all know they're never finished.

The car was bought new at Coberly Ford by the original owner and driven back to Taft CA, just 35 miles west of Bakersfield CA. It's an original Q code which was replaced by a subsequent owner in 1975 who answered the call for speed. The install is just what Ford would have done down to the fan shroud. Needless to say, it garners a lot of looks. For the past 4 years it's spent all it's time in San Diego CA.

Over the past 3-4 years the car has won it's fair share of awards. The biggest thrill was the Jack Roush "Ford in a Ford" award at a Goodguys show in SD 2 years ago, a directors pick at a show in Arroyo Grandé CA and a multitude of plaques and trophys at various shows in Southern CA.

Lot's of stories as we all have but enough for now....Thanks for reading and look froward to chatting with and viewing all the good looking rides.

what's up guys. i'm trying to work a trade right now for a 73 coupe, should find out tomorrow if it's a deal. i've had 4 71-73's so far, an m code 71 mach1, h code 73 mach1,73 Grandé, and a plain jane 72 coupe. the last one i had was about 12 years ago and i still have parts for one of the mach1's i had about 15 years ago, lol. anyway looking forward to getting another. glad someone made a site for these cars. i've loved the 71-73's since i bought my first one back in 87 when most thought they were the "ugly" mustangs. i personally think they have the best body style out of all the years.

Hello everyone. I read about this website on VMF and thought I would check it out. This is a really nice site and I look forward to reading some interesting info from others who have also been enjoying their 71-73 Mustangs, and of course seeing the pics.
I bought a 71 Mustang convertible with a 302 and no options that had been left in a storage area for years and was not running. I stripped the car down to nothing, then had it all sandblasted and primed. I collected a lot of the body parts, carried it off to the body shop, then the painter for the black paint and when I got it back I started putting it all back together. Now I hope to be driving it soon. I do it as a hobby but lately as it gets closer to being finished I have been more than anxious to get it done. I am using mostly original parts but also adding some options and a little new stuff too. There have been a few challenges but hopefully everything will be just fine. Cool

  '72 Mach 1 from New Orleans, LA

[Image: 4761656045_976c7a9927_z.jpg]

Just ran across the site. I've got a '72 Mach 1 that will be getting a restomod as soon as I finish up the '89 open track Foxbody that is occupying my time (and shop).

I've owned the '72 for ten years, purchasing it barely running and rebuilding the motor, transmission etc to make it into a driver. Have been driving it on weekends every since.

One afternoon I put together an EFI system from spare parts I had lying around from Fox and SN95 Mustangs and burned a chip to make it run. Amazing being able to reach in and turn the key and it runs perfectly.

Other cars are a '07 S197 that runs 12.50's (wife's) and my daily driver '95 GT that runs 11.0's.

My name is Andy and I have had my Mach 1 for 22 years. The car is red with black strips, front and rear spoilers, and rear window slats. It is not restored. When I got it there were a mere 39,000 miles on it. I have done a lot of work on it over the years. It's current motor is a warmed over 478 CID big block. It's a pump gas motor with ported heads, mild hydrualic cam, Edelbrock intake and 750 carb. I put a little 125 HP shot of Nitrous on it. The rest of the running gear uses a C-6 with a 2200 rpm stall and a 9 inch and a Trac-lok and 3.50 gears. The car has standard red interior and Magnum 500's, 15x7 up front with 235-60's and 15x8 with 255-60's out back. I have alot of fun with it and drive it as much as I can. I saw a post on another forum about this site and joined up. It's great to see a forum just for the big mustangs!

  72 mustang sprint coupe Diamond in the rough
Posted by: N816 - 08-26-2010, 01:45 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (13)

            I purchased this car at an auction in 02 for dirt cheap, it had a bullet hole in the windshield and only half the front end was covered in a flame job that looked like a half blind arangatang had painted it on.The front fenders had been cut in half and rewelded due to a police chase, the entire red white and blue enterior had been repainted, and all of the wiring had been held together by ductape.
Just last year I ran the numbers and I found out that its a Rare sprint coupe. I've been slowly repairing the arangatangs damages whenever I get the time. Just recently I replaced the front fenders, repainted the doorjambs , refinished the entire enterior, Installed a all new Hd radio with surround sound speakers, Resoldered all the wire connections in the engine compartment as well as repainted the entire engine compartment front end and wheelwells, Installed new guages, and stripped 7 layers of paint from the hood. I also have a reverse cam, Dvd player, touch screen navigation and a bunch of other little gadgets that Ill be installing.
I like to call it The Pale Porse of Death. From what I have heard, the police chase theat it was in ended up in the driver getting shot and killed and thats why I got it so cheap.
Ill be glad to post pics of my progress later. these are the before I tore it all down and cleaned and painted everything pics.
