Hi Everyone,
Just bought a Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier called a 71 Mustang!    Haha 

I can't believe the length of the front fenders and Hood!

I live in North Surrey, Directly South of London, UK.

This car is definitely going to stand out in the crowd of BMWs and other European dull tin boxes.

I know nothing much about these cars or how to tell what factory spec my car was or should be?
I have some small parts missing such as the complete Window washer system, and the car needs all new weatherstripping on the doors and side quarters.
I also need a rubber seal between the filler neck and fuel tank, there is a smell of fuel in the trunk?

For my sins I also have another couple of American Toys, A 2003 Harley Davidson Fatboy and a 2000 Dodge Viper GTS
I am also the UK President of the Viper Owners Association.

Looking forward to gaining tips and Info.

Welcome from Oregon. Looks like you have a nice car there, to start your flight lessons with. There's a lot of data posted on our website. If you go to the Mustang Data tab at the upper right of this page you'll be able to get some. There's more in the Wiki forum, and the a lot of tutorials posted in individual from sections. And then, you'll always get answers to any of your questions.

Get your vin from the dash and go to this site. It will help you decode what it came as from the factory.

Welcome from Omaha! Did a shark take a bite out of that shock tower brace?
