Ex Corvette owner looking for new Ride
#1
Hello. New guy from MA. Here. I have sold both my fun cars and am looking into getting another. I recently traded my 2012 Mustang GT 5.0/6spd/Brembo car and had sold my resto/moded 72 Vette a couple years ago. I love the look of the 71-73 body styles and am trying to learn more about them. So far this site seems great!

Hi,
So far this site is the reference in the world Smile
I found a 73 Grandé in France, should not be a problem to find a 71-73 model in US, I guess.
A bientôt

I'm looking to find a Mach1 and do a mild resto/mod to it. I love the stock look, magnum 500s, and stock paint scheme. My last project was a 72 Vette. 350 ZZ4 crate engine, muncie 4spd (m20), 3:55 gears. I updated the suspension w/poly bushings bigger sway bars, lowered springs and gas shocks. I ran the stock 15x8 ralleys w/BFG tires. 255/60s rear, 235/60s front. I ran headers into a chambered exhaust. The car had a wicked exhaust note. She handled good, (for an old car on BFG's) looked great, but was not that comfortable. The 350 was rated at 355 hp. Chassis dyno read 265 rwhp. The car wieghed 3280 lbs w/half tank of fuel. The IRS bit hard, but kinda took the fun out of driving it. Burn outs were a 4,000 rpm clutch drop, otherwise it just went. I would like to duplicate the handling, increase the comfort and bump up the performance/hp. Tall order, but I think its achievable. Plus I would have a trunk.

Welcome to the site from west Michigan.

No doubt about it you've found the best place for 71-73 advice. It will take a little effort to make the Mustang handle like the "Vette but it can be done. The Mustang will ride and drive a ton better and be an overall enjoyable car. Start with the best car you can find, most likely a southern/western body as these cars can have rust issues. Look at the inside of the cowl, trunk floors, floors and front aprons. As for power, don't worry about it, there's plenty to be made with any of the FoMoCo options.

There have been a couple of decent options posted on the site lately.

Good luck with the search.

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.
