Wow, good eye for proportions. You shortened the front overhang?

Lots of great bodywork so far.

Keep those pics coming!!!! :)

I like the direction you're headed, just the opposite of most other customized 71-73s, where (like Pegasus) they added and added and...

Thanks for the comments. Went to a cruise tonight with the model A. Great weather in the mountains . I will be posting more pics over the weekend. Progress will be moderate to slow as I'm a one man builder A to Z. I estimate this one at 1500 hours and I can give it about 15 a week right now. Have other pics you may find interesting. I plan to fab the rear deck next week . I think you'll have a good idea of where I'm going with it at that time. After that ill be but welding about 300 ft of sheet metal so not much will change for a while. Stay with me I appreciate the support, makes all the work easier.

Could someone let me know why my pics are flipped, thanks. I fitted the bumper today had to fab brackets.


Also looking for your thoughts . I'm thinking the new charger 4 headlight. You know the ones with the flat tops. A honey cone grill with a nice mustang horse in the middle. Just can't do the one single big headlight like stock. Pitch in , comments will be appreciated about this idea or other possibilities like maybe a 69 stang 4 headlight set up set up .thanks

Ya thanks, hope I can figure out what I'm doing wrong , put a couple others that were flipped, sorry lol I hope I don't flip the real thing when its done!!!

Yes, I took 81/2 inches of the front fenders and hood , its all waisted space. I still have room with the core support in its original location to fit grill & headlight hardware . Thanks

She is named Victoria and sports a 302 with a C4.
I really like the direction you are heading with the rear window area of the car. I always liked the fastback profile, but thought it would look better with a coupe-like rear window section! I always wanted to give it a try, just don't have the means to do so, I am very interested to see how she turns out!
