Hey guys i just bought a 71 mustang hardtop with a 302 in it.

[Image: img20110519165914.jpg]

I got it for 1500, with about 300 dollars in registration and plate fees. So far ive replaced the air filter and done a oil change with brad penn 10w-40. It runs like a champ. After about a n hour drive home it was still running cool, i could place my hands on the valve covers without them being hot. Later this week i am going to put new tires and wheels on, replace the power steering pump. Gonna get new spark plugs, disturber cap, and a wires too. My step dad gave me his holley 650 off his 69 mustang since he just brought an edelbrock carb. I just have to rebuild the carb.

thanks guys. I think it was a pretty good deal since it runs great, it does havea lot of small things i need to fix, but none really are that bad. I do need a new driver side fender though. There is a 71 mustang at a local pick and pull i am going to go look at this weekend and see if i can tear a few things off

thanks for all the warm welcomes guys. Ya i am pretty glad i found this forum too, i was browsing the different forums, and they all seemed to broad and didnt have much focus on the 71-73 mustangs. So this is perfect!!!! And you all seem super knowledgeable with this mustang!

You hit on the perfect Site for your car. A lot of the other mustang forum's are no good for our years because they are the black sheep of the family. There is always one person with an opinion you don't want to here about our cars. Here you will get none of that no matter what you plan on doing with it. Be it a resto mod are fully stock you will get all the help you need and more. But as we get to know you you might get nagged hahaha.

Glad to have you join our little corner of the web.
welcome

Eric
