Too good of a deal, maybe?
Smells wrong but might be the deal of the month. It needs to be inspected to ensure the engine transplant was done correctly.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.
I called the seller his name is Ed, sounds like a real nice guy. He told me the photos in the ad are current photos, the paint does has some chips and the rims are showing their age but the body is in very good shape as are the motor and transmission, engine uses a little oil but no leaks or smoke, runs smooth. He say's he's kept everything up so it's ready for the road. The guy he originally bought it from put the 429 in, he believes it came from a Lincoln, not a Mustang. He says the interior is original and in good shape, the steering wheel is after market.

Guys, sounds like it's worth looking at for those in that area. If I lived closer I would be checking it out. He said it was OK for me to provide his telephone # (603) 387-1693.

It's a good price. Not a 'totally killer price'. Frankly I think our cars are over priced at the moment. I am glad I am not shopping for one. Wink

Good looking car but, it drives me crazy to see the hood locks over tightened like that.
The hood locks are not overtightened. Those dimples typically indicate that the hood locks were added and the holes drilled in the are ever so slightly undersized. Most will typically use a 3" hole saw to drill the holes, but the needs to be slightly enlarged for the pins to fit perfectly. Common mistake.
The lack of pictures showing the engine compartment and inside the trunk concerns me.
