1973 "Pro-Touring" project - Creator
Nice work! What seats do you plan on running? Fyi, We had to cut the cut the seat risers out of mine to be able to run a more modern comfortable seat. Going with some 2013 mustang leather seats in mine and mocked up they look pretty good I think.

With the risers out how much headroom does that allow. I have a set of mint 2012 gt/CSU seats I’ll be trying to use

I did not measure but I would say a few inches. I can tell you that it will collapse forward without ever hitting the headliner. Here is a pic of the seat in the all the way forward position. I plan on recovering the back seat with the material from the 2014 as well. The style is VERY close to the original just way more comfortable with deeper buckets and bolsters.

Not any progress here. Creator were out licking some sun today, but I took her into the garage very fast again because she was freezing.. Big Grin I am helping my dad with his Mach 1, the transmission are dripping with transmission fluid, so the trans are out and we are repairing it. After that I will start to make some progress again. I miss it a lot!

I read through this entire thread today, very nice work! What a cool concept while still keeping the look close to original. I'm looking forward to see what's next. Have you thought about shortening the front overhang like on the Pegasus car? That's one thing I really liked the proportion of.

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate to hear those things. Many things has changed by the time. Thanks I actually like a lot that you noticed that I’m mixing those two things together, original with a modern touch. The reason for doing that is because I think that this body style in 71-73 are so perfectly made from factory that I actually some times think that it’s difficult to make any changes to it, and maybe that’s one of my reasons for taking so long about it. But I work back and forth on it when I like too and some day it will be a complete car. Right now it’s a question of money and I’m trying to do what I can with out spending money. But soon I cant move forward with out spending a lot of money on engine, transmission, interior and so on. 

Yeah I got you, I really like how the shortened that front end, looks great man! But I have’nt decided yet what to do with the front end, have a couple of cool ideas in my head and I’m a little inspired by the 69 Mustang front end here with how the headlights are placed back in the front fender. But again still thinking about what to do Big Grin

Got a little bit done today. Got the trunklid welded back together so it’s a complete trunklid again, so now the gap between the rear glass and trunklid fits very well again. Also got startet on the rear quarters with some filler to make them look a little bit smooth again Big Grin

Finally got the hole closed for the lock in the trunk! And I’m playing around with an idea with a new attachment for the racing mirrors to make it look different and little more modern, what does people think about that? It can be a little hard to see from the pictures Big Grin
