Hello all
I am selling my 65 fastback restromod project and going to be buying a 7173 mustang. I live in Tigard, Oregon which is a located near Portland. I have always loved the 7173 style of Mustang and its about time I get one. So I will be posting questions about what to look for and what to look out for soon.
Welcome to the club from northern Nevada. You're in the right place for all things related to 71 - 73 Mustangs.

Welcome to the forum, from The Forida Panhandle.
That 65 2+2 should give you a good boost toward your 7173 choice
Might even to well to use it as trade bait. Go to local & regional Mustang shows(Mustangs Northwest Round Up in Seattle), and meet fellow Stangers. Always a great source of Mustangs fer sale.

Best and Welcome

Different car from the 66 but one you will enjoy immensely.
Welcome from Central Virginia! There are plenty of deals out there i would suggest though if you have the trade or cash to buy one that has been restored or mostly restored and will save you immensly as you will find there are not as many reproduced items for the 71-73 as there is the 65 era.

Things to look for:
typical floorpans/cowl areas for cancer
cancer in the tail light panel trunk floor (common)
cancer around very bottom of the doors/seams

Thankfully the 7173 seem to preserve a bit better than the first years stangs so chances of finding a relatively solid car are good.

Great site and great people who all are serious fans of the 71-3 Mustangs.
