New to the group...

Would like to introduce my latest project, a 1971 429cj J code convertible. 1 of only 42 produced in '71. Low optioned car; auto, A/C, AM/FM radio, tinted windows, bumper guards, sport hub caps. Car is currently in tear down stage for a complete body rotisserie restoration and paint. Arizona car up until the early 2000's, then the son took the car and stored it away in the Spokane, WA area in a dry machine shed environment. Now resides with me in the Niagara Falls, Canada area. Car was on a recent national Mustang magazine cover in September, 2015; shown being pulled out from the shed. I purchased it from the dealer who pulled it out. Big $$ invested, and the real work still to come... However, I have owned many of these cars, one other J Code Mach 1 for 17 year's. This one is special in that it incorporates its original complete driveline line, save, for the missing carb, alternator and distributor. I have searched out all but the correct distributor so far... Anyway, will post pics of the restoration process if the group is interested. Cheers. BTW... trying to post a picture, not sure if it will come through here, patience...

Picture will not post? I get it to upload and then hit the "include in post button", but no luck... What am I doing wrong?
