Recently purchased a 72 convertible from a used car dealer (!) who got it at auction. History unknown. H code with rebuilt
351 C and repainted in original blue (I think) About 90% restored and no rust. Looks mostly original or correct parts to my limited knowledge. Factory AC not working. Dash needs restoration including some lights and instrument. Broken speedometer with 68000 miles. Needs new top and repainted.
‘I love her !

72 Mustang Q-code
Welcome and howdy from Texas! The FL panhandle and AL gulf coast used to have a sizeable and active Mustang community with many nice Mustangs. It looks like you've just added to that group! Congrats!

Welcome from Texas, nice Mustang. Seems that the A/C unit is aftermarket, not factory, but it could have just had the compressor and dash controls changed, hard to tell from the photos.

Looks lite new compressor. Has jury rigged controls but I have found a rebuild original that will be connected later.

Welcome from Ohio. Looks like a solid car. Make sure you check all the "nooks and crannies" as you go about fixing it back up. Take your time and make it right the first time.
