1973 Mustang Convertible, 351C 2v, Full restoration
Hello All... I am Bob from Springfield Illinois. I have been restoring a 73 mustang for the last 4 years. Right now I am in the reassembly mode. I have been making it my "ideal" mustang by changing some things up instead of making it all original. I know some people wont like it......but I wanted to make it a combination of all the things I like best. I removed the auto tranny and added a 4 speed toploader, rebuilt the 351C, and put on some boss stripes, removed all badges. Here are a few pictures.

It's your car so build it the way you want. I tend to keep mine somewhat original but I'm diggin' what you've done so far. Looking great man. Keep it up and post pics as you go.

Btw, welcome from coastal Alabama.

Welcome Bob, from Las Vegas Nevada! Sounds like you and I have a very similar plan! I'm also restoring a 73 vert, and building it "my way". Don't hesitate to ask questions, and don't be surprised if I ask you questions! LOL! Looking forward to your finished product! ::welcome::

Welcome to the site from central Virginia! Cool vert, I love it when people built it their way. There's plenty of factory concourse cars out there.

Welcome from another another vert owner in Middle TN. No real plan was in motion when I started. I just do what I think sounds good at the time. It's the best way to enjoy your car.
