My 72 HT 429/C6 project
Sounds great and reminds me of my 460 Falcon many years ago. I remember driving it without exhaust for 10 miles to get the exhaust fitted and boy did it wake up a few sleepy travelers on their way to work! Revving a loud big block at 6000 rpm on the way to work brings back fond memories.
Also like your paint job and particularly like the non-stripe/blackout look, very clean and gives me an idea of how mine should turn out although mine will have chrome bumpers and 23 less cubes!

I am not a fan of shining things and I like it simple as you said. Smile
Nothing much done in the winter as I don't have heated garage and my friend car is also there, so no room to do anything.

But I got my back seat back from upholstery shop. Now they match front seats.

You've done a hell of a job!

71-73 Mustangs never die, they just go faster!
Finally she is ready Smile

Last problem was fluctuating idle vacuum, so I had to open half of the motor and put it back together. No exact problem was found, only that my valve springs had too low spring pressure for my use (55PSI) so we changed them more stiff. But now she works like a charm, fun ride Smile

Looks fantastic, well done

I had idle/vacuum problems also.
Changed the carby spacer which helped but the main issue was with the new Holley I needed to open the secondary transition slots a little
Need to remove the carby and adjust a small screw under the base, problem fixed however don't over adjust it.
I like it, nice job
Looks good!
