Greetings from Ohio

Greetings from Ohio.

I just bought my first Mustang this week, a '72 Grandé survivor from the Atlanta area. I am having it trailered to Ohio next week. It is a 302- 2 bbl automatic, with 80,000 gentle miles.

It is straight, unmolested, rust free, complete, and was loved by its' two previous owners. I promised to love her too. It needs a few minor things - the vinyl top is toast, as is the top of the back seat.

After I get the basics done, fluid changes, tune-up, new belts and hoses, and some brake work, she will look comfortable sitting in "Mustang Row" at the summer cruise-ins. I don't plan on making her a show car, I am quite content with a respectable, original cruiser.

About me?
I am 55, single, two adult kids. My daily driver is a 2012 Fusion Sport with AWD. I've owned more cars than I care to count, among them a '66 Dodge van, a '68 Galaxie, a '72 Montego MX, and '70 Grand Prix Model J, a '72 Grand Prix Model SJ, an '89 Probe, an '04 300 Special, and a ton of others in between.

Sounds like you have a very nice original car!

I too have a soft spot in my heart for the 69-71 Pontiac Gran Prix cars. Mom drove a 69 J when I was little. I always wished it was an SJ. Worked briefly at a bodyshop and helped restore a 71 Hurst Gran Prix. It was a cool car. The owner took me a ride and while the car looked great, it really was not as quick as I thought it would be. A friend's 429 Torino Cobra or my Boss would eat it alive in a race back then.

Welcome from Oklahoma.

Congrats on your first Mustang purchase! I remember that feeling as well. I was 18. I am also working on a 72 but it is not in the shape that yours is. Good luck and you have come to the right place for advice and support.
