Here's the new guys story.....
#1
Thaks to all for the warm welcome & compliments.I have always been a ford guy & wanted a mustang.Got this one 4 months ago -swapped my Harley.It's a 73 H code Mach 1,the guy that put together said it sat in a barn for 10 yrs with no motor-tranny and misc. missing parts.Nobody knew where the block went.It has a 460 & C6 from an RV with 40K on it.The block and heads are orig.He put in a summit timing chain set & mild cam.It has Crites headers ,summit exhaust,edelbrock perfomer intake,edelbrock 780 carb,procomp distributor.He chose to paint it 71 grabber lime green,it's wearing a mustang grille &mirrors until I can replace them .it has standard interior thats pretty good.She's a work in progress driver and that 460 is a lot of fun,but hard on gas & tiresSmile

Very nice looking car. I agree, it'll look better with the Mach 1 grill.
