Another 71-3 geek signing on here. I have owned three of the large bodies over the years, and still have two of them. The two are polar opposites. I have a low mileage 72 (the red one) with a 302, automatic, and working A/C. I am the second owner of this car, which I bought in 1992.
I also have a 72 Q-code (seem to be bunch of those being restored here) that is in the restoration phase as well. It has a 4 speed with 3:91 gears, no A/C!
Here is a dated picture of both cars happily together.
I started "freshening up the engine compartment" on the Q-code in 2002. That led to engine removal:
Some shock tower repair, inner fender aprons, rad support etc. etc. replacement stretched into 2005:
Finally on New Years Day of 2006 I painted the front end and reassembly commenced:
My fist of two kids arrived shortly after that pic was taken, and well the Mustang has been neglected since. That is all changing now, and I vow to drive it this spring. I plan on leveraging this site as a support/motivating tool. First step is the white elephant exchange!
So that's me. The link to my Q-code "car domain” restoration site is in my sig which has plenty of pics (we all like pics). Glad to be here.
