Hello from Hampshire Tennessee
#1
[/font][font=Tahoma]Hello everyone. My name is Taylor, I live in Hampshire TN which is located in Southern Middle Tennessee.

I recently bought my late uncles 1973 Mustang Convertible . He was the original owner before his death and then my Grandmother became the new owner. It's basically been sitting for the past 25 years with the occasional Sunday drive. It is all original with 68000 miles however the sun and time have not been kind. My plans are to do a sort of restomod on a budget if that is possible...

Here is some basic info.
351 Cleveland 2V
Automatic C6
Air Conditioning
Power Steering
Power Front Disc Brakes
Aluminum Slot Wheels

So far all I have done is basic cleaning and removing old dried out parts. I really don't know where to start so that is why I am here. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Yahoo! A 73 convertible with a 351C 2V!! I've found my long lost brother! Tongue

Welcome to the club, Taylor. My only question is about the C6 - if that's what you have (instead of the expected FMX), then I think someone has tinkered with the drivetrain. That is cool. Any idea if someone swapped trannys sometime in the past? Or, maybe, they did produce a 73 vert with a C6, which now that I think about it, is very possible. If I remember correctly, JorgeM is running a C6, and he might chime in here.

Anyway, I'm glad that you found us!

Wow! Cool car & great history. This is a great site, so much so that I've all but quit visiting some of the others. There are a good bunch of guys on here who are friendly and knowledgeable. I suggest you just drive it for a month or so and get the feel for it and what you'd like to do. I've owned my car for a month now and have completely changed the plan I was considering during the first few days of ownership.

There are a few guys on here from TN & I grew up in Bristol until I was 20. Welcome!

Hello and welcome Taylor!! You have a very sharp, unmolested convertible here man... you may dont know how lucky you are owning a solid car... unmolested!!... I agree with Don then... if you dont know where to start, start by making it drivable, use the car... fell what he has to show you as an original factory example and then, start to point to yourself, the things you dont like to much...

It´s gonna be the easiest way to do a low budget mod... just modify what you don´t like but be aware that your car can be a great example of originality... Maybe the sensation of driving a 40 year old car as it was supposed to be driven start being important somehow...

Check the other cars of our members... there are a lot of verts slightly modified and they look amazing... This specific body style of convertibles has the pro of looking agressive with not much modifications.... The big hood is stunning for a convertible Wink

Luxtang for example, has a yellow stunning convertible that with not so deep modifications looks amazing and up to date... Wheels is an important issue maybe...

There is another member (don´t remember the name and.. long time no see him over here actually) that has a green convertible with 15"magnum wheels... Big tires and if i dont remember wrong... mach 1 decal kit.... Look for it... it is trully supercar...

Anyways... welcome and keep us posted... here are experts in every matter you can imagine so... dont be shy and ask whatever Wink

WELCOME AGAIN!!
