I figured I would put the pictures first, because honestly that's what everyone really wants to see. I've been a long time Mustang Fanatic (Okay long by my standards, I'm 24, I've loved mustangs since I was 10, anything accounting for over half of my life is long)
I recently (April 2013) was able to pick up my first true classic stang. A 1973 H Code Mach 1, FMX Transmission, Ram Air. And the best part is it only has 20,000 miles on it! When I bought the car it didn't run, the ignition was locked and it came with no keys and had two flat tires.
It still has two flat tires, but it has a new ignition cylinder, new timing cover, water pump, engine seals, fuel line, freshly re-build carb, and corrected wiring (whoever worked on it before had a DEATH wish when it came to wiring) and now it runs like a top! A few weeks ago I was able to pull it out of the garage on its own power and drive it around a little bit. I didn't get too adventerous, with no rear brakes, no hood, and no rear view mirror, or brake lights and turn signals for that matter, I wasn't about to take it out on the road.
The car has been a California Queen all it's life, originally delivered to Coberly Ford (Bears the radiator support tag to show that is was Custom Ordered by Coberly) and the Marti Report Confirms.
My plans for the car are a simple Resto-Mod, I want to keep it close to the original but not at the sacrifice of reliability, or fun
This is the third Mustang I have owned. I started with a 1991 LX Notchback, 4 cyl, 5 Spd which I ended up giving to my uncle.
And then there's my pride and joy, my daily driver. A 2012 GT/CS 6 Spd in Black. I drive 150 miles a day for work so it's already got over 40,000 miles on it, and I've loved every moment of it.
Best Friends I'm Sure.
I look forward to this Forum and getting help on my Journey!
