Great forum! I just bought a 73 Fastback with a 351c v2 last month, a Christmas present to myself. Needs work, but pretty decent condition all in all.

I started with a tuneup and got it running fairly well. One problem I'm having is I can't adjust the timing because the distributor won't turn. I took some advice from the forum posts and spray it with PB blaster and tap with a hammer everyday. I'm trying to be patient with it.

I am working on the interior now. Stripped it and cleaning up some surface rust. Painting the trim and replacing the carpet. I'm not looking forward to installing a new headliner, so I'll save that for spring.

Welcome from western Tennessee! welcome Nice looking car. I really like that blue. I just bought a 73 Mach 1, to replace my car-B-qued coupe. The Mach 1 isn't nearly as nice as yours, but someday... Smile

Welcome from central Ohiowelcome Nice looking fastback you have there. I like those blue Mustangs! This forum is a huge resource for anything you need to do to your car. Don't forget to use the Google Search feature (upper right corner) to look for existing threads on any topic. Post up some pics of your interior if you get a chance.
