Hoping to Reenter World of Mustang Ownership after 30 Years - West Valley Mustang - 10-04-2017

Greetings.  After owning a 1969 Mustang Grandé early in life and restoring my family's 1966 Mustang Coupe, I have been away from Mustang ownership for about 30 years.  I am hoping to work out the purchase of a 1972 survivor convertible in the coming weeks.  If all goes well, I will be spending some time here trying to learn some tips on how to spruce up this car.  No major restoration is planned.  I am hoping for a relatively low maintenance cruiser to enjoy in the Phoenix sun.

Welcome from the Netherlands. Nice red convertible! Interesting mirrors on the car, haven't seen those before.

Welcome from North Carolina. I think the mirror might be the standard one not the racing they were an option.

I had not noticed the mirror, but now that you mention it, it does not look like some of the others I can see in pictures. I will have to see if this one was replaced and if it matches the other side.

That mirror does not appear to be factory. I think the options were the color keyed racing mirror or a chrome one.

Also the wheels are from a '73. The only year those wheels were offered.

Nice looking convertible. I did notice that the antenna is on the wrong side of car, supposed to be on the passenger side...
