'71 Coupe 351C 4V
Hey forum, I am a new member and now own my first mustang. It is a 71 coupe. It originally had the 351W in it, but my mechanic's father had built up a Cleveland 4V and dropped it in 20 years ago. I am quite ecstatic as it has all the options I wanted, ps, pw, pl, a/c, etc. IMO everyone and their mothers own 64.5-70's. We are a special breed that prefer to be more unique and own 71-73's. I can't wait to get more pics posted and learn all kinds of info on this forum.

p.s. she does need some TLC and I have some time and some money, finally a great project.

73 MACH 1
Hi welcome to the bad to the bone mustang club. 71-73 mustangs are the nicest early mustang to drive. 71-73 mustangs can take any engine you desire. 302,351W,351C,429,460, and I haven't seen one my self but the new 302 Boss overhead cam engine probably will fit.

My 73 MACH 1 has a 460in it and Its like driving a luxury rocket ship.

Welcome to the club from northern Nevada. Nice project you've got there. You're definitely in the right place for all things related to 71 - 73 Mustangs. Glad to have you here!

welcome from a one time and last time mustang owner unless i become rich. Haha. Welcome from latrobe PA. HOPE you are reading everyones comments to the newbys on this site. As my fingers are numb in my custo comments to them while typing in the past couple of hours and quite late in the nite/morn bu to sa.y look into what you want on the long term early and to figure you will not see a big value no matter what you spend for your personal satisfaction and gratification compared to the older and new shelbys but I LIKE MINE AND GOT TO FIGURE THAT WITH 400 PICS ON MY PHOTO ALBUM AND 18 IMAGES TO VIEW ALL ANGLES OF MINE SCHEDULED TO BE FOR MARCH COTM 2015 caledar. Worked on since got it in 03 ciao MIKKE
