  1. BigBlue

    Mysterious sound. Completely stumped.

    Alright y’all... I’m usually not too bad at diagnosing the car, but this one has me completely and utterly stumped. First let me go through everything I’ve done, as some context might help. This January, I pulled out the engine and changed the rear main seal, oil pan gasket, all the freeze...

    Finally back on the road!

    Woohoo! Finally got the old girl back on her feet! Some of you may remember that I crashed my poor Big Blue during the latter half of 2013. Here's the thread: http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-crashed-the-mustang Anyway, just want to announce that after lots of persistence, parts-gathering...

    Trapezoids!

    I used to be into '65-'68 Mustangs when I was a kid, way before I got bit by the "Clydesdale" bug. One day, during my teens, my dad gave me a book that covered first generation Mustangs, and that's when I first took notice of the '71-'73s. I had never seen one in person, and thought they looked...

    Anybody have all the brackets and goodies to install twist locks? I have two twist locks and nothing to mount them with. :-/

    Another Movie Mustang!

    Hey everyone... Just saw this trailer for Cymbeline. Comes out this year and has plenty of big name Hollywood talent. Ethan Hawke drives a '73 convertible. Check out the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prB-K3buPBM

    Electroluminescent Gauges

    Wandering around the interwebz, I came across these: I've seen these a couple of times in catalogs, but have never seen someone actually use it in their Mustang. What's the deal with these things? Has anyone here actually used or seen a set of these electro gauges in person? I like the...

    Standard Steering Wheel

    Hey everyone, Anyone have one of these laying around? I'm looking to get rid of the ugly Grant wheel that's on the car now and for some reason I've been wanting one of these standard plain jane '71 steering wheels. Doesn't have to be perfect, just something that's usable. Thanks, Josue

    Crashed the Mustang :(

    Warning: Depressing thread. Yesterday was one of the worst days I've had in a very long time. I was on the expressway going home from work, all the way on the right lane. Something happened which I'm still trying to get a grip on; the rear of the car swung out and the entire car started...

    71-72 Grille - Damaged or Broken

    Hey everyone, My '71 coupe is rolling around without a grille and looks silly. The original grille was missing the plastic at all the mounting points and was practically hanging on to the bumper, so I removed it. Now I'm looking for a cheap (emphasis on the CHEAP) 71-72 grille. Standard is...

    Electrical Gremlin

    Hey guys. I have a little bit of an issue, wanted to see if anyone has had this experience: A month ago, I tried cranking the car to take it out for a spin, and it just stayed silent. It wouldn't click or anything. All the accessory lights turn on, everything else works, but no crank. I changed...

    Road racing Mustangs?

    I've been looking through the internet for some nice road racing 71-73s, but I haven't seen much, if any, material on them. Apparently nobody likes to take the Clydesdales out to the twisties. I mean, yeah, they're big and heavy as far as vintage Mustangs go, but given their wide track and...

    Monte Carlo bar fitment issues

    Hi everyone, here goes my first tech thread! :cool: I have a 71 coupe and I want to do some suspension upgrades. I have stiff coils up front, but nothing else, so the first order of the day was to get a monte carlo bar to stiffen up the front of the chassis. 30 bucks later, I have a nice shiny...

    Hello from Miami

    Hi everyone, happy to be a new member here. My name is Josue and I'm a Miami resident. I've had my '71 coupe (I call her Big Blue) for about 9 years now. Bought it junior year of high school, and it's been my pride and joy since. I daily drove it, parked it for a couple years, daily drove it...
