Welcome from Central New York.

You've found the best place for information and advice for 71-73 Mustangs.

Thanks.  It’s going to be a job.  I’ve done several cars over the years. I figure the guy tha took it apart did all the dirty work for me.

Welcome from Oregon. Looks like there's enough of it left to hold 4 tires on.

If you browse through some of the build threads you'll get a lot of inspiration. Some of the cars on the forum were truly brought back from more rust than solid metal.

By the way, we like pictures...

Welcome from North Carolina. My ‘72 was a basket case as well... nearly finished now.  These are great cars and this is the best place for support and information. 

Will look forward to updates on your progress.

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

Welcome to the group from North Carolina. I like buying them in the box you can see what you are getting. Never toss anything some parts are not available. Hey they saved you a weeks work tearing it down.

At least your "basket case" is not made out of all air. There is still a little bit of it left. 

 Huge kudos for you saving another one.. they are well worth it.
