Hoping to Reenter World of Mustang Ownership after 30 Years
#1
Greetings.  After owning a 1969 Mustang Grandé early in life and restoring my family's 1966 Mustang Coupe, I have been away from Mustang ownership for about 30 years.  I am hoping to work out the purchase of a 1972 survivor convertible in the coming weeks.  If all goes well, I will be spending some time here trying to learn some tips on how to spruce up this car.  No major restoration is planned.  I am hoping for a relatively low maintenance cruiser to enjoy in the Phoenix sun.

Welcome from North Carolina. I think the mirror might be the standard one not the racing they were an option.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I had not noticed the mirror, but now that you mention it, it does not look like some of the others I can see in pictures. I will have to see if this one was replaced and if it matches the other side.

That mirror does not appear to be factory. I think the options were the color keyed racing mirror or a chrome one.

Also the wheels are from a '73. The only year those wheels were offered.
'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, 750 CFM double pumper, Holley Street Dominator intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

Nice looking convertible. I did notice that the antenna is on the wrong side of car, supposed to be on the passenger side...
