Hello from New Braunfels, TX
#1
Ok..I know my '71 isn't pretty, but its a work in progress. I bought the car for $650.00 dollars. I think it was a good deal. Hopefully, in time it will look as good as some of the stangs I've seen here. But, as with all projects...it takes time and money...and more money. Anyway, my plan is to take out the 302 and get it rebuilt this summer. So far I have 3 places in mind to take the motor to for rebuild. 1. mission machine shop 2. clays machine shop 3. duffin. so far, I've been hearing a lot of good things about mission machine, so I'm leaning on going there. Body work...well, there's a lot that needs to be done, but I've doing a little bit here and there. I will keep you guys updated on my progress. Thanks.

Welcome and like I tell everyone else, we all start somewhere. SO keep the faith, and you are correct on the time and money and money and time. If you are like me when you have one you don't have the other. Keep us posted.

I think you got a excellent deal on the Mustang. The motor looks nice and clean and well taken care of with some nice aftermarket parts.

WELCOME aboard!

Curious as to what made you apparently start with having the motor machined? Not necessarily a "bad" thing but just wondering if it has some issues.

There is a LOT of expertise on this Site for all phases and types of restoration/modification, so I think you will find all the help that you think you might need.

Again, Welcome and I look forward to interacting with you on the Forums.

Welcome! Is there a problem with the engine? It looks nice. If it ain't broke... I'd put that money in other areas. Excellent deal in getting the car!
