    Hello from sunny Florida

    Hello, I have a 1972 Mustang Convertible with a 351 cleveland FMX tranny and a 9" Locker rear, and just signed up to this site.
    Nice to have a site about 71-73 cars.
    I cant look at at another article about a 65 shelby suspension drop, Rally pac gauges, or where to find HIPO 289 heads.

        Welcome to the club, Jorge! Yahoo! Another convertible!

        You are DEFINITELY in the right place. Post a few more pics when you get a chance. Plus, where does that motor live that's in your avatar? I'd sure like to hear more about it as well.

        Again, welcome!

                    Thanks for the replies, the motor in my avatar is a 351 cleveland with 4V closed chamber heads. I built it up with a solid cam, ported heads, forged high compression pistons. I installed the motor minus the tunnel ram in my green mustang for streep strip action, it revs happily to 7200 rpm.
                    Next project is a 4r70w tranny conversion with a 4000 rpm converter to be able to use the new horsepower.
                    I am a Cleveland freak, I have 2 spare 4V headed motors and just sold my third spare cause I needed the room.
                    I may put the tunnel ram on the mustang later to test it out, but I wouldnt want to cut the hood, so I may be looking for another project to find it a home.
