Hello all. My name is Mitch and I work at a restoration shop near Houston. I saw Rocketfoot's signature for this site on another forum and joined up. We are currently working on a 71 Mach1 for a customer. I am going to have parts left over and will probably need to find some as well. While I work more with 65-70 Stangs, the 71-73 has always been a favorite due to the rareness at car shows ( I love Torinos, Marauders and Cougars as well). Looking forward to speaking with all of you.

WELCOME aboard, Mitch!

It appears you guys are working with some real nice vehicles there at the shop.

Curious as to the "front dress" on that 521 - - Is that from ConceptOne?

Again, welcome aboard!

The bumpers have been shortened and the brackets have been cut to get them to fit close to the body. The pulley system is from March.

I have been kicking the same idea around. Do you have in-process photos?
