    Hi everybody.

    Beautiful car, sleek and mean. Pretty low at the front, your front cross-member must be just about touching the ground! Thanks for including lots of pics!

    Starting A New 72 Mach 1 Project

    Yep, you are absolutely correct Ib4stangs, I just peered down at that area of the trunk for the first time with a torch and I can see evidence of welding around the scallop, it's been repaired with body-work and some filler. There is a lot of evidence of panel straightening on that quarter panel...

    Starting A New 72 Mach 1 Project

    An interesting contradiction; measured from back edge of the panel the length of the scallop on the my passenger side is 1.5" wide and the scallop on the drivers side (replaced panel) is 2" wide. My bumper is where it should be for a 1972, so bumper mounts are correct. Was the scallop size...

    Starting A New 72 Mach 1 Project

    When replacing that rear quarter sheet metal be aware also that the 71-72 sheet-metal around the bumper area is also different to a 73. One day at a work car show somebody looked at my 72 and said "Is that large gap around the end of the bumper from factory?" I'd had the car about 10 years and...

    1974 Ford Falcon panel-van and coupe TV ads.

    My Mustang has a little bit of Australian Falcon in it; it has the factory air cleaner housing from the XB Coupe on it, and also I installed XC-XF Falcon upper control arms into it. When I bought the Mustang the upper control arms were shot so I bought standard aftermarket arms and they squeaked...

    1974 Ford Falcon panel-van and coupe TV ads.

    I had an XB Coupe for about 5 years back in the 1990's, it was my main car so I drove it absolutely everywhere and in all conditions, including rough dirt tracks, but never through flowing water! It wasn't a collectors item back then like they are nowadays, so I just drove it wherever I wanted...

    1974 Ford Falcon panel-van and coupe TV ads.

    Considering Australia's XB Falcon shares some styling cues with the 71-73 Mustang, some might find these vintage ads from 1974 interesting, showcasing the Ford XB Falcon panel-van and XB coupe

    Buzzer

    Behind the dash just up above the glove box. It was a long time ago but from memory it was attached to the metal rail at the front and had a plug that could be disconnected.

    Buzzer

    Disconnected my buzzer not long after I bought my car. Not only did I dislike the noise, the buzzing sound varied up and down in pitch and sounded like a giant blowfly that was in the process of being slowly eviscerated by a sadistic spider.

    Looking for feedback on my new wheels

    I love the look of them! Where I live the tread outside of the vertical line of the fender extremity would be considered unroadworthy though.

    Hi 7173 Community New Aussie Member

    Custom Mustangs in Melbourne had new dynacorn cowl panels but I see that they have listed them as "out of stock" though. Maybe you could talk to them to see if any more are on the way? https://www.custommustangs.com.au/1971-1973-mustang-front-cross-member

    Good stuff! Still, it looks pretty nice with the chrome one on it too!

    My moldy old girl

    Really nice to see another one saved. Are you going to eventually put the urethane bumper back on?

    Converting drum to disc kits

    Got mine done a few years ago, I also used the type that used the drum spindles with an adapter plate for the calipers. I paid a brake shop to do the work for me. The kit used the same brake pedal, but required a new hole be drilled in it about an inch lower for a pin to be placed in it that...

    Parts Wanted 71-72 front urethane bumper

    Wonderful that the 7173 community has come through for you to get you a new bumper! If you are reusing the main bracket I would be checking that out for damage as well when you disassemble the bumper from the bracket. I noted recently that brand new main brackets are available for our cars. I...

    Parts Wanted 71-72 front urethane bumper

    To me your bumper looks like it has taken a hit to the front at some stage and which has "flattened" the angle. I say that because the one currently on my car looks similar, it's been pushed back about an inch in the centre and the unnatural backwards bend has caused slight distortions elsewhere...
