Newbie with a '72 Grandé
#1
So glad I found this site. I am the proud owner of a white 72' Grandé 351c 2v which I bought last week. Since I am only 17 and not a ton of mechanical knowledge this site has been great, lots of people willing to give advice.
The car is in pretty good shape with a couple of rust spots that I am in the process of trying to take of now. The interior is black and red and is immaculate. Only 83,000 miles on it, one owner. There were a few things done to it before I bought it: new fuel tank, true dual exhaust, and few other small things. Love the car and can't wait to really get started on getting it to where I want it.

By the way from Mayflower Arkansas. Are there any Mustang clubs in the area?
