My son's 72 mustang that we started restoring.He is in the US Army deployed to Afganistan.I am working on it slowly to Hot here in Alabama to do much.I hope I can have most of it finished before the end of next year when he returns home.

Very nice modifications!

That particular "shot" resemble somewhat the Australian Falcons that Ford sold over there - - I like it, especially the hood scoop.

I absolutely love resto-modded big bodied mustangs! THANKS for sharing.

Awesome. He will be so happy when he returns. You must be proud.

Please send thanks to him for his selfless service to our country. I hope you request Patriot Guard Riders to escort him home when he returns if they do that in your area.

That hood scoop on the hood was originaly on a 69 Mach1 that a friend of ours wraped around a tree in the early 70's.That was all he had left of it.He gave it to my son so he installed it .Dont look to bad on it.

Nance, Did his car have chrome surround on the hood and sides that you have painted black? I am curious as I would like to keep my chrome bumper but really like body color trim on side mouldings and across hood. My chrome is in fair shape but thought about painting chrome or simply replacing with normal (non chrome) peices...

Thank your son for defending us in the sandbox. May God (or whatever higher power you believe in) watch over and protect him until his return...

Yes It did have the chrome fender and hood mouldings. They where faded and scratched up so we stripped them and painted them black.
