Looking for my next Mustang
#1
nuke 
Greetings.
I am between Mustangs at the moment. My first was a 67 fastback with 289/auto. Really liked that one until I wrapped it around a telephone pole very late one night. Sleepdriving is not recommended. The second was a 65 coupe 200 I6/3 spd. Project car that got eaten by night school. Got tired of it sitting waiting for attention. So now I'm moving the Toyota Solara convertible on to a new owner. Nice car but no soul. I miss a strong V8 roaring through dual exhausts. Makes the blood move. My brother had a 73 fastback 302/auto and I was surprised by how roomy it was. Important as I'm 6'8". With a little searching I found your forum and hopefully sometime this summer I'll be the proud new owner of a 71-73 fastback.
Catch ya later

I'm 6'2" and I feel like a little kid in my mustang and suprisingly my daily driver crossfire. I fell in love with both cars because of the seating position, how the door panels come up my shoulders. Welcome aboard!

The 73 actually felt sporty to me. I fill up the driver's seat pretty well without getting overcrowded.
My dream is to build the car as my interpretation of a GT Gran Tourismo. Somewhere around 400 horsepower, automatic, comfortable ride with improved handling, and excellent brakes. Comfortable sporty car for cross country drives.

Welcome to the club, CoolBreeze! Glad you found us.

I must say, the 73 convertible with the top down offers plenty of headroom. Tongue

Hope you find your ride soon!
