Funky Customizing on a '73 Vert.
Spotted this '73 for sale on Evil Bay.

The owner has been fairly adventurous,and done some customizing here and there, and come up with an alternative look.

Some mods look OK to me, some maybe not.

The interior takes on a different appearence for sure, and the center gauge treatment is interesting.




I like it. I know some people are gonna say the stripes are wrong or the gas cap is wrong but this guy took what he liked from our 3 years and put together a more tastefully done custom job.

I like it too. Only thing I didn't like was the placement of the hood pins.

This is my main complaint with it as well, otherwise I really do like some parts of it a lot.

And it's nice to see more yellow mustang love!

I tend to agree. :-)

It looks pretty decent. I don't know about the convertible top boot in that funky design but other than that I got nothing to complain about. Except for the hood pins of course but that would be a pretty easy fix as its in the black section.

Agree with everyone above... Not bad
Overall I like it. I have some nit picky stuff but not worth mentioning unless someone is looking to buy it. I think the starting price is a little high. I like what they were trying to do with the interior and boot.

I believe a plain boot would be better ...but I like it.

LOL even my sig line offended somebody!

i think the parade top is a bit garish and loud myself, as also the Harli pearl accents in some way.Love the wheel spinners too.
Take the hood pins back to original position as well.Mixing original dash gauges with new electric center ones doesn't marry up well for me either.


And believe it or not, the wing is oriented correctly...but on a convertible???

Let me check your shorts!
