Hello from Dallas
#1
My first car was a 73 Mach 1 and really missed it over the years. After an unsuccessful search to buy it back, I found a fantastic 72 Q-Code that is in need of a complete restoration. I have it stripped down and it is ready for blasting/dipping. I hope to have it on the road soon.

I also drive a 2007 Mustang GT
My better half drives a 2004 Mustang GT

Do you have a 28 or 31 Spline rear axle behind that 351? Is it a Top Loader or C6?

I'm not sure yet. Being that this is a Q-Code 4V Top Loader car, I would assume 31 spline, but will need to verify.

I'm not crazy-far from Farmers Branch, but not close either. I am in Talty. East of Dallas near Forney.

I will get some pics up soon guys. I just need some quality time at the computer to get settled in on this site.
