Hey folks. My name is Mike and I just bought a 73 Gran Torino Sport with a 2V 351C. Amazingly almost rust free East Coast car, it needs a front fender and headlight bucket but otherwise looks and runs great! I’m sure I’ll be pouring all over this forum as I sort this car out but I wanted to introduce myself first!

Welcome, and sounds like a great car! As soon as you can, post up some pics...we love pics here! Several members on this site might have some parts you may need, and the knowledge level for help is awesome.

Not sure how to embed photobucket pics but that link should go to the album.

Other than the damaged front fender, and a mediocre interior, it’s in great shape. 351C seems tired so I MIGHT swap in my 347 roller motor to pep it up a bit.


Edited: I think I figured out the photos

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum!  Your Torino looks great.  You can embed photobucket photos into threads, but or preferred method is to upload right to the site.  We had some issues with photo bucket no allowing third party hoisting and lots of people lost a ton of photos from their threads.  Once they are uploaded o the site, they are here permanently. 
 
There detailed instructions are at the link below. It covers different methods of how to post photos.  Let me know if you need any help.
