Hey guys, I've been on many forums so I know how the system works.
This is my first build/restore. 1973 Ford Mustang Fastback. Currently, the engine starts but it is not drivable due to a minor transmission problem. Right now it is in the shop getting checked out. I'm more of the cosmetic builder - so I let the pros handle the engine/transmission situation.
I will post pictures during the process except the engine/transmission part because it will be done by the pros.
A little history behind the fastback: There was a TV show called 'Repo Games' and the guy couldn't pay back the loan or couldn't make payments. He failed to answer 3 of the questions correct so they repo'ed his car.
The Fastback episode starts at 7:30. Feel free to watch the whole show.
I'm a fan of the big Mustangs. I had to 71 Machs. One had a 351C. the other had a 302. Good luck with the build.

One of my best friends had a 72 with a 351C, I loved that car. It looks like a straight body on the 73.
I'm hoping to turn the Fastback into a fun (and fast) car like it was back in the day. The body is very straight with minor rust in few areas. Those rust issues will be taken care of. My current goal is to get this car drivable and to pass the emission test.
