1973 Mustang Mach 1 351C 2v
Hi y'all,

Just moved down to Tucson from Boston with a 1973 Mach 1 that I am rebuilding. The guy i bought it from tried to turn it into a drag racer and failed.

It is not in horrible shape, but needs work.

351C 2v (fresh rebuild)

Edlebrock Performer intake and 1406 4 barrel carb

Long pip exhaust manifold/headers

FMX transmission (minus the neutral safety)

I have rewired... correction... attempted to rewire the car, but I am chalking it up to a learning moment. It runs and works, but I will definitely go through and rewire again (with a new kit) once I get down to the frame and blast everything.

If anyone knows a media blaster in the Tucson area and a body shop (welding/patch work) or can help me do it myself, that would be much appreciated.

WELCOME aboard!

That is quite a "transition" (from Boston to Tucson) weather wise. I am sure your 1973 Mustang will absolutely love the change.

As previously noted, we have a lot of GREAT knowledgeable people who are willing to share on this Site. I think you will like it here:).

Again, Welcome and I look forward to interacting with you on the Forums.
