Pround new owner of a 71 mustang Grandé
#1
runninpony 
Hello everyone ive been looking for a forum to get info and share my car im building. Most mustang forums are dedicated to the old 60's cars or the more modern cars and lack the 70-73 aspect i finally found this site and joined up.

My car is a 1971 mustang Grandé that has a 2v 351c ,c6 trans, and 9inch rear

the good:
car runs engine is great
trans shifts nice drives nice
rear end is solid
all the parts are there

the bad:
rust in floors (making patch panels already)
needs body work and paint (have everything to do it)
needs good wheels and tires
breaks need work

ill attach some pics (fenders are not bolted on yet so keep that in mind i know they are way off)

welcome!! looks and sounds like a good foundation to start. my 72 Grandé has much more rust to deal with. i would paint it white but thats because i'm cheap. use what ya got, kmow what i mean. i saw a white 73 coupe online once.looked awesome.
