    Hey yall this is my dad and i's '72 mustang. Just got her tonight, 2/14/11

    This is her to this day. 302 2V V8. Frame is in perfect condition, barely any rust.

    It used to be a vinyl top, but the original owner did away with that.

    Stay tuned!

    Nw Wheels/Tires from a friends GT - 17" w/ 235/55/17 Perelli's w/ 3000 miles on them. Alittle bigger rim than i wanted, but it was a great deal and couldnt pass it up.. it should look great once i mount them!

    front-1_18869a63b5ec6d613599267140a5f5cecfb92366.jpg

    Cleaned the car a bit, chrome piece on hood is on in this pic in which it wasnt on the first pic.. its not secured down until we paint the car

    0311011608a_dcfb6caa502f7c4facaf7dd4254a6d6717d5470e.jpg

    New wheels.. i originally planned to do wheels/tires last.. but my buddy gave me an incredible deal for these and i couldnt pass up! I need to get spacers for the front soon because it hits the suspension so i dont have the fronts on yet. As for the rears, i will space them also so they line up
    with the fronts.

    Took out the seats to go to the upholster, look at that dirty carpet! and look at the broken arm rest

    New Grant steering wheel, new floor mats, new brake pedal


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBUDoNR1IFQ&feature=player_embedded

    Pics get old.. decided to do a walk around video in HD of the car. It shows the new black carpet, notice the hole in the carpet before the shifter.. yes i know its there, im waiting for a new shifter console that covers that hole, the steering wheel i will cover up with a horn button soon, installing Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers on her this week, fixing the brake lights, and waiting for the seats to be back from the upholster.. enjoy the video.. if you're wondering why the car jerks back and the exhaust note changes... i put it in gear so you can hear the sound while idling in drive. Also the exhaust is "chopy" sounding because of the exhaust hanger on there.. its temporary, just so i can drive her to get the new exhaust system put on ( new Flow Master Super 44 mufflers and 2.25" custom made tailpipes versus the stock 2" pipes)

    Those cars are awesome!

    As your looking around for parts check out PreformanceParts.com, If you call the number for help talk to Dave, He's the man and knows his stuff! More of a chevy guy but know ford very well also.
