Hi all,

Just getting around to formally introducing myself. I just pulled the trigger on a '71 convertible. I have been thinking about this day since I was 13. I have owned 3 Mustangs in the past: '74, '75, '82 none of which filled the need or the definition of a muscle car. The '82 GLX being the closest. This one should. Thanks to those that chimed in earlier on the car before I bought it. I have not seen the car. Only pictures. It should be on a truck making the trek from South Florida today. Thanks to Don at OMS I already have the side stripes and the rear spoiler. Below are some pics of the car that I received from the dealer, however, they painted the front chrome trim to match the car and aligned the front end for me.

Wish me luck!

Looks great. Is it a factory 429 car? A 429 vert has to be pretty rare.

Welcome from West Texas! Nice freaken car!! ::welcome::

I am totally sympathetic to the 'since you were 13' sentiment... mine was haunting me since I was about the same age. My first car was an '82 GL hatch (2.3L, auto, white walls, wire-wheel 'caps, woodgrain, and 'Desert Sand'), that I made look like a GT - still miss that little car.

Can't wait to see it with the stripes and spoiler! ::thumb::

No, i was originally a 302. The 429 is connected to a built C6 and a 9" posi rear end with 3.31 gears.

I am waiting on a call from the driver delivering the car to get the delivery date.

1971 Mustang Convertible, factory 302, disc brakes and A/C. Started to rebuild it all original but elected to go full tilt and rebuilt everything in the drivetrain, a/c, cooling, etc. etc. etc.

I remember when you posted pics before. Good move having the chrome trim painted. It will look much better.

Welcome to another Scandanavian from Minn. Is that a factory 429? C or J Code?
