[attachment=5835][attachment=5836][attachment=5837]Hi. Name is Roland. From St. Louis, MO. I am a loyal Mustang and Ford guy in general. I have always like the 71 to 73 Mustangs. The size and length of them just always made them standout for me.

I found a 72 H Code coupe under a tree in 2007 and decided to save her. I am in the closing weeks of a 4 1/2 year build.

I wanted to build a classic Mustang Restomod with a 71 - 73 as my base.

Guys say to me now, I didn't like the big Mustangs, but now that i see yours, my opinion has somewhat changed.

I'm really not trying to impress anyone. I just want to see what's in my head driving down the road.

Attaching a few pics, let me know what you think.

To see the build pics, you can view here:

Thanks. I wanted to do something a little different. Always like the look of the Boss Stripes. A little more dramatic in my opinion that the Mach 1 stripes.

welcome from East Tn nice documentation along the way. Looks like you had some help also. Enjoy the site

Thank you for the compliment. I did. As huge as the project was, I was very fortunate to have help.

Fortunately my wife and I specialize in upholstery, so we managed the interior. My uncle, a close friend and I rebuilt the entire drivetrain, and a friend of mine finished the body and paint.

We painted it Sonic Blue. I found the code from a 2003 Cobra and had to go with it. I love how it changes color in the sunlight.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I like the restomod approach! :-)

Welcome Roland.

You have found friends.

Thank you sir. It's nice being among a group of people who have the same love for the 71 - 73 as I do. I'm feeling at home already.

I wish I knew about this site when I started building my car.....
