I am using my fathers login to this site - he had many good things to say about the group and had made direct contact with several members. Thanks to all of you who made his participation fun and enjoyable.
My Father passed away a few weeks ago after a long fight with cancer. He was 97.
I've read through his post and they brought back many fond memories.
He sold off nearly all of his collection of engine parts last year but he left us a 1971 convertible as well as a 1973 convertible to build and play with. I am looking forward to finishing these with and for my 2 kids.
So if it is acceptable I will continue to post here from time to time and will certainly ask for help when needed.
Hi everyone. New here been a lurker for a bit. Heard about this page from browsing the super awesome 1971 Mustang Mach 1. Finally bought one a few months ago with an interesting history. I bought it from a man in Idaho, he explained that car has been in his family for 25 years. Raced it for a few years and retired it and it has been sitting ever since. Here is where it gets very interesting (at least for me). The car has had it's engine replaced with a Boss 351 engine. They even painted the car with the Boss 351 stripes (pictures to come). Not only that I wanted to get a Marti report on it but the replaced the dash and did not write down the VIN from it so they had a new one issued to the car. Anyways this forum looks awesome. Cannot wait to see what is in store.
My name is John. I'm from South Mississippi and I purchased a 1972 sportsback with a 302w about a year ago. This is my second vehicle and being 19, I feel like it was a fantastic purchase. I came across this site while looking for answers on a 351 swap. I'm still undecided if I'll do it or not. I have the original engine in it and the odometer says 31k (although it's probably 131k ). I got her for $4,500 and she needs bodywork, paint job, and the wiring redone (automatic windows stopped working), but I absolutely love her.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post!

Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forum, but a longtime Mustang owner. I currently own 4 Mustangs (always subject to change) including a 1973 Mach I with the Q code motor. A bit of a unique car as seen by my Marti report. One of 64 made in the color/interior combination. Currently painted blue, but should be 4Q (green). I hope to have some more info posted soon.
Hi everyone. I am a big fan of the 71-73 Mustangs. I do not own one at this time but I do have a chance to buy one. I joined this forum for advice on buying this car and hopefully I will be here while I restore it.
I hope you will be able to give me some advice and help.
I think I included a picture of the car. Not sure how tinypic works.
All I really know is the car has been sitting for ten years in a garage. It was just put outside. I want to get it out of the elements asap.
G'day everyone from Western Australia
Recently purchased a 72 Coupe V8 stocker that is part way RHD so I have my work cut out to get it on the road not just restoration
Came across this site and was so impressed by all the great info especially Q's videos, pics & tips that I had to join
Will be soaking up all the great stuff and perhaps will have some photos to post someday
Hi from down under.
Currently there is 2 Mustangs built in 1972 in the stable. Both are converted to Right Hand Drive
-Mach1, red on red, DSO 99, originally shipped to Europe. I have owned this one for 13 years.
-Grandé coupe with many modifications including grafting on an Aussie EL Falcon front clip. Hence I named this one EL Grandé. I have owned this one for approx 3 years but it has only been on the road for 6 months.
