F-i-n-a-l-l-y I’m going to be an owner, not just lurker

F-i-n-a-l-l-y I’m going to be an owner, not just lurker[/b]

Greetings all - Yes, finally found my Mustang! I’ve searched, watched and waited until the right combo of features, condition and $ hit the sweet spot. There only so long one can tolerate “D’oh! Missed another one”, right?

And I’m quite sure I’ll be back with many questions, but for now, the specs: 1973 Mustang Convertible, 351 4V CJ, C6, Mach 1 decor package, nicely optioned (a/c, p/s, p/b, p/w, Rally Pac gauges), medium yellow with black cloth interior. Literally a “barn find”, but once cleaned up, gassed up and charged up, started the first time. That’s promising.

Many discoveries to be made, I’m sure, once I get it home. THEN the fun begins! I’m planning to stay true to authentic as possible, certainly no irreversible or obvious changes but perhaps a few upgrades (eventually) such as tilt wheel & cruise.

ALL tips/tricks/hints/suggestions welcome.

Looks like you have a nice car to start with. Welcome from Oregon.

Congratulations, Nice well optioned car. Have fun with it!
Congratulations ! Power Window , AC, Convert (power top?) car !!! Just goes to show that patience, in both buying (and then going at the car) pays off .

I have been offered a few car (many makes) that "had the finder" NOT replaced the important original parts HASTILY (read turned in for cores) I would have paid much more or bought. (One was a Boss, one was Camaro )

Welcome from San Diego. Congrats on the new ride.

Congrats on giving a 7173 a home and some TLC -- good starting point - with some home improvements you could make that look and drive like a new one.  thumb
