This is the look
#1
Alright, so this is what I'm going for (except dark blue instead of green). I love how clean it looks.

Does anyone know whose car this is? Does anyone know the make/model and size of the wheels?

I know Steve that car is Sweeeeet. I think it was in Hot Rod a few years back. I believe the wheels are Boyd Coddington wheels.

He may be right with the wheels being Boyd Coddington but it's hard to tell. If you notice, the rear wheels are bigger than the front wheels - I'm gonna assume 18" rears and 16/17" fronts.

I've never been a fan of the Lowrider look (not to insinuate this thing is running on chromed wire wheels off an Morris Mini Cooper), but I must say - the '71-73 bodystyle looks outstanding when lowered any amount; far better than when raised.

It is truly the lithe, rocket ship of muscle car designs.

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 can understand why you like that look.
Funny thing is, I never liked the lowered look with modern size rims on classic cars.
But then I saw this particular car a few years ago and I completely changed my mind and got me some big rims and lowered the car.
I guess, this car must have influenced many people.

I just had a moment. Blush Thanks Kurt, that's going to be my new desktop wallpaper.

I'm with you Mike, I always liked the classic look but for some reason our cars lend themselves to the modern look very well.

The car that looks like it is turning left in the banner at the top of this website is the same car. I think about it all the time when I come here.


It was in Popular Hot Roddinig. It is actually a Boss.
