Hey, new to the Classics Section here on SN. I'm adding a new pony to the stable. It's a 1970 Mustang Grande. Body: Rock solid save for a rust hole on top of the passenger's side front fender that is the size of a dime and a small dent above the taillight on the driver's side. Vinyl roof was replaced some time ago as it is in great condition. Passenger side marker lamp is missing. Grande rocker trim missing on driver's side. Rear lower valance missing. I could buff out what's left of the paint (Has been re-painted at least once). It's red for the most part. Interior: Needs work but is in fairly decent condition. Front seats need reapair and the radio is missing. Passenger's side seat is holding the sidepipe on via bailing wire. Engine: RUNS. Built Edelbrock 302 V8 with 351 heads. Carter carb off a 440 HEMI. Sidepipe exhaust - no cats or mufflers. Fuel system needs to be replumed as it does not pump into the engine. Drivetrain: WORKS. C-4 Automatic. Car does move on it's own (if you can keep the engine running ) Wheels/Tires: Wheels Could be restored, tires are bald and flat. Suspension: Intact. Rear has been shackled So I'll be starting this thread as I will be needing help. This is going to be my first project. I plan on putting the old factory wheels and tires off my '02 V6 on the '70 to make it a bit more mobile. I know the bolt pattern is the same. Questions thus far: Rear has been shackled - why? Will the 16"rims/tires off my '02 V6 fit? Any thoughts in general on this?
