That looks like it needs a ton of work.

My best advice is to buy the BEST car you can afford. It is money well spent over a complete project.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

All I can say is wow! $2500? It looks like what's left of someone's parts car.

Agree, it would make more financial sense to buy pay $2,500.00 for this steering wheel pad and find a reasonably priced rust free car already completed to go with it.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

I have a steering pad as nice or nicer than the one in the photo and I'll sell it for $1,000. Tongue

I agree, buy the BEST car that fits your budget.
