1971 Convertible M-Code
[url=https://ibb.co/nHm4aG][img]https://preview.ibb.co/cVMsUb/car.jpg[/img][/url]
Hello all,

Picked up my first classic this past Thanksgiving, a 1971 M code convertible which has spent its entire life in the Bay Area (Fresno, Santa Cruz, San Jose). Will restore to the best of my ability to stock appearance with some suspension and engine improvements. A well taken care of vehicle. Had an eight track ( no more), has a honeycomb tail light panel, aftermarket Eagle rims (from San Jose), and aftermarket console gauges, otherwise fairly straight.  Have already picked up the eight track on eBay. 

I'll have some questions along the way, like should I re-install and reconnect the AC? (Not for now I presume).  

Thanks and here's some pics....

1973 Mustang Grande 351C 2V, built on the very last production day (July 6, 1973) for Grande's.
Welcome from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and congratulations on your very nice convertible! I have to get used to those wheels, they look very 80's to me haha.

Enjoy your car and your time on this forum :)

Hard to imagine these were an aftermarket UPGRADE to Magnum 500's. :D 

It also has a Grant steering wheel from the same era.  ::thumb::

I was seeking a local M-code convertible so you get what you get.

Welcome! That is a great looking ride! You will like it here, lots of friendly people and amazing information.

As a fellow convertible owner let me suggest you look into getting some subframe connectors. Do a search to see why.

My '72 convertible was ordered from a factory catalog while I was serving in Viet Nam '71.
