Hello from Ohio
#1
Glad to be a member!

I recently bought a '73 convertible, and have been scouring the net for ideas and advice regarding mild modifications.

I'l post some pics when I get home from work.

My '73 has a 351c 2V and 2.5:1 rear end. On the outside, it's all stock except the wheels and the addition of a NASA hood and rear spoiler. Under the hood it is all original except for an aftermarket distributor and a chrome round 14" air cleaner. And... all the hoses and belts are new.

The odometer shows a little over 26,000 miles, and the title says the same... No clue if those are actual miles with a mild restoration, or if the odometer rolled over once or twice and it had an extensive restoration.

The paint job is not original, and looks to be 10-15 years old. It still has a lot of depth to it.

In any event, it is in storage until warmer weather, so I have some time to decide if I'll make any mods, and if so, to what extent.

Looking forward to a new hobby!

I forgot to mention, that it has dual exhaust, but the original headers. I have no idea what mufflers, but they are only about a foot-n-a-half long

Thanks for the welcome! I spent the summer of 1982 working on a tow boat out of Galveston (her name was the "Ginnie G"). We would push deisel and fresh water out to rigs, and would push diesel along the intercoastal waterway, from Galveston/Houston Through Port Arthur and into Sabine Pass, LA.

Good times.
