Hi folks. I found out about this forum on Facebook looking for helpful tips and build ideas. I have a 72 Mach 1 Q code 4 speed. She is in pretty rough shape but I believe no Mustang should die a horrible death to the dreaded crusher.

  Mustang greetings from the Netherlands
Posted by: Fabrice - 04-13-2017, 01:54 PM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (21)

Hi all,
New to this wonderful website and community, let me introduce myself. 
I'm in love with 71-73 mustangs and the first thing I did when I've turned 18 is to buy one.
Now more than thirty years later, i'm still in love.
I'm french, and was active member of the french mustang club in late 80's
and was once I've moved to the Netherlands, became an active member at TMCN, the dutch mustang club.
As a freelancer, my time was too restricted to continue to be involved as I was, so I'm enjoying the back seat of the club for a few years now... 

I own a 73 grandé coupe that i've modified quite a lot since since then, It's having all the options mustangs could have excepted
the tilt column. The original 2v cleveland replaced with a 0.30 4v block and rare 351 Shelby heads is prepped, full of healthy parts from pistons to intake. The car also mixes the 3 years regarding parts. Mainly because finding parts in the 90's in France was very hard and also because not everything is nice in 73, such as the massive front bumper and other details.
and I got also a 71 429CJ fastback.
I drive a 93 T-bird 5.0 for the vacations and daily grocery trips.

While the 73 is currently finishing its second restauration, my 429, which I got for free from a friend
is now back from a dusty 20 years long storage and in front of my garage to get a total once the 73 will give her space into the garage.
Both cars were waiting... kids, house, work... Now the wait is over Smile

One thing I do not like with the 71-73 is the cheap plastic Ford used.
Thats why I've replaced most of the cheap plastic crap by self made more nobel materials.
using aluminium, wood, leather....
On the picts you can see for instance the dashboard aluminum and the steering wheel i've made to go with it...
(I'll post later on nicer picts)
I do everything myself, welding, paint, bodywork, mechanic... Not planning leave the fun to others Smile

I'm supposed to do an intro, so I'm gonna stop here and I'll spam later on with more picts and questions if you of course would be
interrested to talk 71-73 stuffs!

  Mike from Maryland with a worn down 73
Posted by: MikeW302 - 04-08-2017, 11:28 AM - Forum: Introductions - Replies (14)

It's been a long while since I last logged in so I thought I'd re-introduce myself. I'm Mike, 24, living in central Maryland. I've got a neglected 1973 coupe with a 302. It's been sitting idle for way too long and I want to restore it. It just seems theres so many things wrong with it, I have absolutely no idea where to begin. The few automotive friends I had all moved away in the last year, so I was hoping you guys could give me some on advice on where to start. The good new is it turns on and drives, but iit's sluggish and rough. The suspension and steering is crap. The engine leaks oil like a sieve. I had a guy do paint and body work years ago and he did a shoddy job. With the help of a friend I rebuilt the transmission four years ago and that's about the only thing that's working as it should. Thanks for your help in advanced. I'm planning on joining the local Mustang club but in the meantime, I'd love to hear from any of you all.

-Mike W.

Hello everyone, glad to finally join the forum. 

Since I was a child I have been involved with classic cars in one way or another. When my dad bought his first Mustang from the United States I was instantly hooked on American muscle cars. I wound up working for a car shipping company in the states, and I now see more muscle cars everyday than I could ever image.

Hello all, amazed that I have finally bought a Mustang and completely unplanned while driving around in my beat up 1978 Ford Ranchero. Great to be part of the community finally! 

Sorry for the lack of better photos but it was surrounded by cars and grass so no real opportunity until I get her out. Bought it because it was dirt cheap and only had rust in the door sills with the rest of the vehicle being solid and straight. It has;
Black bucket seat leather/vinyl with cloth insert
Yellow paint with black GT-351 decals
Manual steering and breaks
Disc front drum rear
Speedo in kmph not mph
I have done as much research as I can on this and am feeling confident but not sure so am bringing my question to the masses.
Is this a rare Mexico de Shelby mustang or just another mustang? Thanks

Hello All,

I have been lurking on the site a lot lately, so I thought I'd join in! 

I started out being a hard-core Ford guy in high-school in the 80's.  Then I started dating this pretty little gal, and she owned a Camaro.  So I hot-rodded her car too.  After that pretty little gal became my wife, we had put all the car stuff away to raise a family.  Now that our youngest daughter is a few months from moving out, we figured it's time to get the hot rods out again!! thumb

I had a friend that had a '73 Mach-1 in high school, and that silly car infected me with a love for the 71-73 Mustang.  I tried to buy myself a Mach 1 at least 3 different times in the past, but the deal always fell through for some reason. Shootself  I'm hoping that the 4th time will be a charm! 

I currently own a 2015 Camaro 2SS (love that car) and hopefully soon to own a J-Code '71 Mach 1.  We shall see!

I've had a few yank tanks in my life but finally there is a Mustang in the Garage. She was built on 28 September 1971 at Dearborn Michigan and sent through the Cincinnati District Sales Office to Lee Ford Pennington Gap Virginia as a floor stock order. She is a 1972 model year Mustang Mach 1, 2 door Sports Roof in Ivy Glow Metallic with silver highlights. She came with a 351 2v Cleveland V8 with a 2 barrel carb and had a 3 speed FMX Select Shift auto. Options included factory tinted windows, Mach 1 body side tape stripes, Select Air air conditioning, Power steering, AM radio and E70 x 14 belted white sidewall tires. Still jumping through hoops to have her registered but will be on the road real soon.
